Album of the Week – New Venusians debut self-titled album


After much anticipation, Sydney neo-soul and hip hop blenders New Venusians have delivered their self-titled debut album via US Label Fresh Selects and will play a run of shows up the coast in celebration of the release. The fresh, synth-soaked LP features singles ‘Keep Running,’ ‘Game Change’ and ‘Get Along’, with the latter landing them a spot on Double J rotation, plus further nods from Triple J Unearthed, Triple J’s ‘Roots n All’, Triple R, FBI and Eastside Radio just to name a few. Having already attracted the interest of fans both at home and abroad, New Venusians are going from strength to strength gaining massive exposure with recent inclusions in Spotify’s ‘Fresh Finds’ Playlist, Apple Music’s ‘The New Wave of Indie RnB’ Playlist, and the Bandcamp Weekly Show. Made up of some of Australia’s most sought after musical talent, many of which have worked with some of Australia’s leading contemporary artists including NgaiireSampaThe Great, and Urthboy.
