Melbourne duo Huntly are regarded as one of Australia’s most engaging and evocative rising electronic acts. Signing with Remote Control Records (FKA twigs, Holly Herndon, Smerz) for the release of their second album Sentimental Still (2023), Huntly emerge as a new leader in Australia’s invigorated experimental pop scene.

The arrival of debut album Low Grade Buzz in 2019 brought Huntly widespread recognition: earning nominations for the esteemed Australian Music Prize (2019), & at the AIR Awards (2020) for Best Independent Dance Album. The record garnered acclaim from tastemakers including triple j, MTV, Stereogum and Noisey, as well as Anthony Fantano and Vinyl Me Please, bolstering the album’s success with fans in international markets – accruing over one million streams & solidifying the album’s impact with a growing fanbase around the world.

Sophomore studio record Sentimental Still is a stunning collection of music, highlighting myriad influences from UK garage, drum&bass, & alternative R&B. Already amassing praise for its vision, warmth, and heartfelt precision, Huntly’s new release will see them showcase at SXSW before returning to Australia to commence their national tour.
