Asha JefferiesÂ sharesÂ her first new music for 2022, with the release ofÂ introspective pop gem Tank Tops. Produced and mixed by Sam Cromack ofÂ Ball Park Music,Â the single comes at an exciting time for Jefferies, who recently announced her signing for management to SunroomÂ (sweater curse, Hope D, Bugs)Â and is preparing for aÂ 12-date national tour supporting Noah Dillon, and a showcaseÂ atÂ BIGSOUNDÂ this September.Â
Played first byÂ triple j,Â the new single, Tank Tops was written in a time of tremendous changeÂ and discovery for Asha. She explains,Â â€œItâ€™s a song that means so many things to me – itâ€™s personal, itâ€™s about my identity, but it also marks a distinct change in how I make music. A new producer in Sam Cromack, a new band collaborating and letting it be an intuitive process when it comes to recording – community has played a huge part in this story. Most of all, this song is incredibly personal. Itâ€™s a song about entering a new phase in my life and how my queer identity has taught me to love.â€
Asha Jefferies is best known for her sombre, melancholy pop songs – combining the patience of folk with the urgency of youth. Her 2021Â EPÂ ‘The Pinnacle’Â was a coming of age releaseÂ for the artist and songwriter; a culmination of soft glowing idiosyncratic sounds and classic folk arrangements, featuring the single Crybaby, which was added to rotation acrossÂ triple j, Double JÂ andÂ triple jÂ Unearthed.
Jefferies has previously shared the stage withÂ Julia Jacklin, Lime CordialeÂ andÂ City and ColourÂ and played festival slots atÂ Bluesfest, Woodford FolkÂ andÂ Mullum Music Festival.Â She won a Queensland Music Award, triple j Unearthed‘s NIDA Competition and has been a finalist for both the Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition and the International Songwriting Competition (ISC). Asha and her band will lapÂ the country this September as main support onÂ Noah Dillon‘s national album tour.Â
