About The Release

The solo project of Byron Region female artist, GIMMY (pronounced "gimmie") brings a diverse flavour to the table with sways of surf-garage, indie-rock and glimpses of folk. Alongside her band consisting of Samson Radici (guitar), Kyle Aubrey (bass) and Barclay Israel (drums), GIMMY delivers a raw authentic sound with heavily lyrical songwriting and vibrato vocals that captivates crowds with a charismatic stage performance.

GIMMY’s forthcoming album, Things Look Different Now is the epitome of what a debut record is all about; a collection of songs that showcase just how far GIMMY has come and how much things have changed — both in her life and musically — since Gemma Owens’ first launched her solo endeavour back in 2021. Through the album’s 12 tracks, Owens’ explores her own ideas and experiences of “change”, through themes dealing with relationships, ageing, life phases, success, grief and memories.

Recorded with Sam Joseph (King Gizzard, Babe Rainbow, Nice Biscuit) between his cabin studio in Byron hinterland and Gemma’s 1920’s style house in Mullumbimby, throughout 2022/23, the debut album is soaked in 80s and 90s nostalgia, with the band bringing together an eclectic collection of songs that weaves garage and surf rock, post-punk, folk and indie rock together, through GIMMY’s stunning voice, Australian charm and unique songwriting. Even with its musical diversity, the band’s debut is above all; an emotional, thought induced record, full of feelings that is presented with honesty and humour that is impossible not to enjoy.

“My music is a representation of my raw expression in all its diverse forms. It allows all the different shades of my inner world to be expressed into the outer world. My songs are representations of messages to myself and my thought processes toward different worldly topics.”

In the short space of her career, GIMMY has had widespread recognition, including Triple J, which earned the band a spot on the main stage at Splendour In The Grass 2023 through winning the Triple J Unearthed competition. Known for their energising and charismatic live shows, the four-piece has been scaling the Australian east coast sharing the stage with some of the country's best artists such as The Murlocs, Bad Dreams, Floodlights, Maple Glider, Nice Biscuit and Canada's TOPS, as well as winning hearts at Brisbane's Bigsound 2023. 

Things Look Different Now is set for release on May 31st 2024 via Third Eye Stimuli Records. Pre-order limited edition vinyl and merch now!
