Moby Rich announce headline Australian shows

Presented By Live Nation

LA two-piece Moby Rich have announced two headline shows on their debut Australian tour this May. Alongside their national supporting tour with Broods, they’ll be showcasing their electro indie-pop hooks and visuals at Melbourne’s Northcote Social Club on May 18, and The Lansdowne in Sydney on May 29.

The pair—Maxwell Joseph and Connor Pledger—have been riding a wave of rave reviews following the release of debut single Yoko Ono last year. The track was quick to pick up traction, passing 1 million streams on Spotify, and was followed by their EP, aptly titled Our First EP. Released on Tap Records (run by Tap Management, who are behind the careers for Dua Lipa, Lana Del Rey and Angus & Julia Stone among others), the EP has drawn comparisons to early MGMT and the laidback beat making of N.E.R.D.

Moby Rich have recently been touring the U.S. and Europe, including a sold-out debut London show at Dingwalls with half•alive and equally rammed US shows with SHAED. With their latest single Blink bringing further attention to the duo, this Australian tour is the perfect opportunity to catch two indie stars on the rise.

Support on the tour comes from yergurl in Melbourne, whose lo-fi beats and unique pop style made her a Triple J Unearthed favourite. Sydney support will be from Hoodlem, a streaming sensation with her mix of experimental soul and future R&B.

“Flickering between a charming duet and belting bursts of indie-pop, Moby Rich continue to cement their youthful energy with compelling capability.” – ‘Blink’ single review, – The Line of Best Fit
