Aussie Trio Safia Play the Early Show at Mercury Lounge on Monday

July 15th, 2016

Ben Woolner (vocals and production), Michael Bell (drums and production) and Harry Sayers (guitar, synths and production) met while in college in Canberra, Australia, and formed the indie electronic trio Safia a few years ago, winning over audiences with singles filled with a mix R&B, soul and electronic pop. And while they’ve sold out scores of shows at home, Safia (above, doing “Counting Sheep” live on Triple J) have begun conquering the rest of the world, thanks to appearances at SXSW in the United States and Primavera Sound in Spain. Their debut full-length, Internal, is due out later this summer, but you won’t have to wait that long to see Safia because, with their American tour winding down next week, they play the early show at Mercury Lounge on Monday night.
