Safia - Embracing Me Tour

With what is sure to be a huge set at Splendour in the Grass on the way and the ground only just settling from their previous broody offering, ‘Counting Sheep’, Canberra overachievers Safia are releasing ‘Embracing Me’ next Friday July 10. Not content to sit idly, the trio also announce a complete Australian tour to showcase their diverse musings on contemporary electronica. Safia will be performing in Ballarat CentralGeelongMelbourneWollongongNewcastleBrisbaneByron BaySydneyCanberra and Adelaide.

Premiered on Triple J Breakfast this morning, ‘Embracing Me’ pairs intimate lyrical styling with crisp and snappy beat production, offering the new single that’s arguably one of Safia’s best yet.

The ‘Embracing Me’ tour follows Safia’s two recent sold out shows in Sydney and Melbourne as part of the cool accidents' Vinyl Club launch parties, previous sold out tours, and appearances at the likes of The Great Escape, Primavera Festival, SXSW, and Falls Festival. Their Triple J Like a Version debut in May saw the three-piece cover Alt-J’s ‘Left Hand Free’, winning them virtual high fives from across the globe.

Safia will be supported on their national run by fresh faces, Boo Seeka, famed for their experimental compositions and dreamy evocations.

Safia’s trajectory has been steadily on the up since winning the Triple J Unearthed competition to play Groovin’ The Moo back in 2012. Featuring on Peking Duk’s double platinum Top 5 single, ‘Take Me Over’, a series of sell-out headline shows nationally, a national support slot with queen bee, Lorde, sweeping sets at Falls Festival, and with over 2 million Spotify streams of their tracks plus 4 million Soundcloud plays, the Canberra-based outfit show no sign of slowing down.
