Sydney artist BUOY (Charmian Kingston) is one of Australia’s most innovative and interesting electronic acts. After the release of Clouds & Rain in April, which earned her a triple J addition, FBi & national tastemaker radio support, rave reviews online across Australia & internationally with outlets like Majestic Casual, The Ladies Network & One A Day, BUOY is now set to release her Break EP via October Records.
Working with longtime collaborator Jack Grace and recent Pieater signing Christopher Port, BUOY pairs her established ear for melancholy and tension with bursts of vibrant colour. Trained as a jazz pianist, her live show is a unique take on electronic music with pianos, vocals, synths and percussion building upon one another to create a stunning wall of sound. She has supported Lapsley, Oscar Key Sung, Ngaiire, Banoffee, Kllo and Rainbow Chan, performed at Secret Garden Festival and the Tiny Dancer Stage at this year’s Splendour In The Grass.
