The beginning of Spacey Jane’s astonishing success in Australia arrived when the band released debut album Sunlight in June 2020. Universal adulation duly followed for the band, the album debuted at #2 on the ARIA album chart, was voted Album of the Year in the triple j Listener’s Poll, was nominated for a J Award for Album of the Year and is now certified Gold. The sleeper single-turned-megahit, ‘Booster Seat’ picked up Song Of The Year at the 2021 ARIA’s, the AIR Awards Best Independent Song Of The Year and is certified platinum.
It currently sits at over 35 million streams on Spotify alone, with the band hitting 180 million in total streams. ‘Booster Seat’ also landed at #2 on the triple j hottest 100 in 2021, alongside Skin at #15, ‘Straightfaced’ at #28 and Weightless at #81. Spacey Jane will release their highly anticipated second album Here Comes Everybody on Friday 10 June. Taken from the working title of Wilco’s seminal album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (one of the bands’ favourite albums) Here Comes Everybody first came to life at the start of the 2020 lockdown.
The album features recent singles, ‘It’s Been A Long Day’, ‘Sitting Up’, ‘Lots of Nothing’ which landed at #3 on the triple j hottest 100 and ‘Lunchtime’ which also took out the #12 position on the coveted poll. Now, the world at their feet, the shows they have managed to play since the live scene has re-emerged from lockdown have welcomed the long-overdue in-person coronation of Australia’s new stars.
