Romy has announced a run of intimate shows in Melbourne and Sydney, marking her debut Australian solo headline performances in January 2024.

UK singer, songwriter, and DJ Romy (who previously released three acclaimed albums with her band The xx) will be heading to Australia this summer with festival slots at Beyond The Valley and Wildlands Festival to celebrate her critically acclaimed debut solo album Mid Air out via Young / Remote Control.

Coming off the back of rapturously received shows everywhere from Coachella, Glastonbury and All Points East to Love Saves The Day and Ibiza’s legendary DC10, Australian audiences get to witness Romy’s exuberant, technicolour set, up close and personal, as she delivers effusive, life-affirming tunes at Mary’s Underground on January 3 and Max Watts on January 4.

In 2020, she released her debut solo single Lifetime to widespread acclaim, followed by a collaboration with HAAi and Fred again.. on their hit track Lights Out which has amassed over 20.58 million streams.

A now-legendary pop writer, Romy has co-written each of The xx’s three acclaimed albums, Dua Lipa’s Grammy-winning hit single ‘Electricity’ with Mark Ronson and Diplo’s Silk City, plus songs for King Princess and Halsey, among others.

Mid Air sees Romy working alongside producers Fred again.. Stuart Price (Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Dua Lipa), as well as her bandmate Jamie xx on recent single Enjoy Your Life. Also featuring the singles Strong, Loveher and The Sea, Mid Air is set to unify dancefloors, distilling Romy’s love of club classics and classic songwriting and finding the sweet spot – like much of Romy’s favourite music – between euphoria, escapism, sadness, and melancholy.
