Listen to Dirty Girl

'The Art talk the rock'n'roll talk as well as they walk it' – INPRESS

"They played a set that was dynamic and enigmatic, with just the right
amount of moody rockstar" – FASTER LOUDER

“….Here Comes The War is their debut album, and they blaze a trail of indie rock
without the shoegazing or boring, jangly, garage-y simplicity.' - BEAT

 "There is no doubt The Art is one of the most energetic and mesmerising live shows
around. Make sure you don’t miss it." – SUNSHINE COAST DAILY

“The Art just might have been the hardest working support band of 2010, scoring some of the biggest tours of the year….” THE DAILY TELEGRAPH

The Art recently launched their album at Sydney’s iconic rock venue The Annandale. The show sold out quickly with around 200 disappointed fans that couldn’t get in due to capacity  This show marked the beginning of a hugely successful tour across 4 states. The band has also received some landmark media support along the way with reviews of the studio album Here Comes The War, cover stories, and amazing live show reviews.

Here Comes The War debuted at #15 on the ARIA Australian album charts and continues to climb.

The band have spent 2011 touring their home country promoting their debut album, while writing and recording for their next album. Check out their latest track 'Dirty Girl' on Facebook!
