A few weeks ago, I had the special opportunity to sit down with the genre-defying trio, SAFIA, before their show in Melbourne, Australia. The suave band from Australia’s Capitol Territory, Canberra, consists of Ben, Michael, and Harry who have been jamming together ever since primary school. They have been super successful in Australia ever since their conception as a band in 2012. They won Triple J’s Unearthed Groovin’ The Moo competition last year, they’ve supported the likes of Disclosure and Lorde, released many amazing remixes and singles, and have boasted copious amounts of sold out shows all throughout Australia.
As the Doobie gears up to go to New York’s CMJ Festival later this month, SAFIA will as well. They perform on October 24th at The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn during their first of many stints in the US. Keep your ears open for these guys – their talent is infectious and their groove leaves you breathless. Peep the interview right here:
