Through cascading, ethereal vocals and sprawling instrumentation, Australian artist Annie Hamilton boasts a unique ability to evoke memory and nostalgia within her music. Rejecting straight-forward narrative structure in favour of pinning down hyper-specific yet universally empathetic moments, her 2022 debut album, 'the future is here but it feels kinda like the past', is a stylised-yet-grainy collage of snapshots that span a mammoth range of emotion, sound and genre, but are tied together as documentation of little human moments, full of contradiction and duality, reality as metaphor and metaphor as reality. In her short solo career, she has already completed tours with Julia Jacklin, Lime Cordiale, Gordi and Jack River, attracting the praise of triple j, CLASH Magazine, The Fader, NPR and more.
