With her debut album, summerskin, just over a week from release on September 28, Australia’s rising pop queen, Eves Karydas, today announces she’ll be taking her new record on the road this coming February – presented by triple j.

The summerskin Tour 2019 will see Karydas perform around the country, including shows in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and finally Cairns, for an extra-special homecoming show for the North Queensland-raised star, now based in the UK.

2018 has been far and away the stand out year of Karydas’ career. After re-emerging on the scene late in 2017 with the powerful single, ‘There For You,’ she’s only gone from strength-to-strength in the nine months since. The follow up singles, ‘Further Than The Planes Fly,’ ‘Couch’ and ‘Damn Loyal,’ have received both local and international praise, and seen her recognised as one of the most-exciting, new pop talents in Australian music. 

She’s reinforced that praise with stunning live performances throughout the year. From supporting local heroes Cubsport and international star Dua Lipa on their Australian tours, through to lighting up the stage at Splendour In The Grass and selling out her own, national headline tour, her reputation as a dynamic live performer has only seen her reputation grow exponentially. 

That reputation was cemented last month, when she took to the booth to perform for triple j’s coveted Like A Version segment, doing 
a beautiful rendition of her own song ‘Further Than The Planes Fly,’ followed by a breath-taking tribute to the late, great Aretha Franklin, performing ‘(You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman,’ just a week after the Queen Of Soul’s passing.

summerskin is a record that documents Eves Karydas’ journey of self-discovery across the globe. After beginning in Cairns as a teen café singer, she would eventually launch her career as Eves The Behavior in Brisbane. Following the release of her debut EP, however, she set off in search of herself, travelling around America and Europe before landing in glamorous Camden, London, “in a small, dingy flat on the fifth floor of an ex-council block, with five other people. And that’s where the record was born.” 

She wrote in her bedroom, whisper-singing into her laptop, so as not to disturb her flat mates, eventually piecing enough material together to work with a team of fellow expats, including Australians Sam Dixon (who’s worked with Sia and Adele) and Warpaint drummer Stella Mozgawa, along with producer Chris Zane (Passion Pit, Friendly Fires) – a New Yorker – who all came together to help create summerskin.

“I want to put across a sense of confidence in myself that I never had,” says Eves. “I never tapped into that side of me on the Eves The Behavior stuff. I had to fake it for a while until it started to feel natural, but it has been the most liberating experience for me. It’s been the best thing, because suddenly I can talk about what I do and not worry about someone saying, ‘Oh, you’re really up yourself.’ It’s like, no: I’m excited. And there’s nothing wrong with that.”
