ARIA award winning Fremantle foursome Spacey Jane have cemented their position as one of Australia’s most-loved indie rock bands. Their debut album Sunlight, released in June 2020, entered the ARIA chart at No.2. Four tracks would be voted into triple j’s Hottest 100 including fan-favourite “Booster Seat” landing at No.2, just behind Glass Animals’ “Heat Waves”. “Booster Seat” went on to win Song Of The Year at the 2021 ARIA Awards, while achieving platinum sales and accumulating over 88 million streams to date.
The band – front man Caleb Harper, guitarist Ashton Hardman-Le Cornu, bassist Peppa Lane and drummer/manager Kieran Lama – spent the first half of 2021 finally getting to playing sold out COVID safe shows across the East Coast of Australia. “Streaming numbers and chart positions are great, and they’re exciting to watch,” Caleb says, “but we’re a live band. To engage with fans like that, to see the music having that reach, that means everything.”
The band’s first taste of new material is the single “Lots of Nothing”. Road tested on their sell-out tour in the first half of 2021, it pinpoints a subtle development of their sound, with intricate guitar work and Caleb exploring his falsetto. The second single “Lunchtime” was released in October and premiered globally as a “Zane Lowe World First” on Apple Music 1.
Spacey Jane will finish recording their second album this year and have international tours slated for early next year.
