Hailing from Australia’s most populated city are Sophie, Annabel, Georgia and Cecil, collectively known as Body Type.
Formed in 2016 following a series of chance meetings, Body Type quickly got to work on some demos, passing them around to friends across the net. The raw tracks quickly garnered the attention of fans and music industry types alike, before the band played their debut show later that year.
Body Type earned a big break in 2017 when Canadian rockers Japandroids invited the band to open for them on their Australian tour dates.
Attracting the attention of Partisan Records, (Idles, John Grant, Fontaines D.C.) the band released their debut self-titled EP on the label in October 2018. The six-track release earned the quartet plenty of new supporters and received praise from the likes of i-D, DIY, Clash and NME.
Latest single Free To Air perfectly encapsulates what Body Type are all about. Featuring harmonised vocals layered over dreamy guitar riffs, intricate bass lines and pounding drums, the single is the first track to be taken from the band’s upcoming second release on Partisan Records, EP2. The brand new EP is set to drop on 3 May 2019.
Now breaking out of their home country, Body Type recently made their US live debut with a jam-packed schedule at the most recent SXSW festival in Texas, before heading off to sunny Los Angeles for a debut US headline show.
The band now turn their attention onto Europe, which will see a run of headline shows and the band perform at festivals such as Live at Leeds and The Great Escape.
