Sitting at over 20 Million online streams, landing high rotation with six singles and placing in Triple j’s Hottest 100 three consecutive years in a row, Safia have announced the details of their highly anticipated debut album Internal, scheduled for 9 September.
Internal was written and self-produced by the band in Canberra and London, before being mixed by Eric J Dubowsky, who has mixed the most recent albums for Flume, Flight Facilities, and Chet Faker.
The outfit have also shared the cinematic new video for the current single, ‘Over You’ which reached the coveted position as most played track on Triple J and currently sits at over one million Spotify streams. Directed by New Zealand-based concept specialist Marcus Hofko of The Bow and shot in the United Kingdom, the cinematic clip is a surrealist visualisation of the haunting effect a broken relationship can leave behind.
Off the back of their fourth consecutive sold-out headline tour which showcased their impressive new live show, the album’s release will be supported by the band’s biggest tour to date. Starting 23 September in their hometown, Canberra, Safia will play over seven weeks, finishing up in Auckland at The Powerstation on Friday 11 November. Safia will be supported on the tour by breakout producer, Running Touch and house duo, Set Mo.
Safia have previously supported Lorde and Disclosure, and played coveted slots at Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival, The Great Escape (UK), Primavera Festival (SPAIN), and SXSW.
