Born out of Sydney, Australia, BESTIES embody a generation of youth who’ve learnt to intersect with the world through the internet; creating nostalgic emo rock tinted with the subtle artfulness of contemporary hip-hop. In 2022, Producer and multi-instrumentalist, Nat Sherwood (Stand Atlantic, Sarah Saint James & Somber Hills) and vocalist, Max Pasalic (Up Late, After Touch) formalised their relentless musical curiosity and DIY values into a two-piece band, influenced by over a thousand hours of recording, producing and songwriting together. Together the two would officially debut BESTIES in May with their winning entry into triple j’s coveted #DIYSupergroup competition. With an intimate vocal performance and a larger-than- life emo chorus, ‘two bedroom apartment’ was hand picked as the winner in the nation-wide competition with staffers calling them “creative & emphatic” and “apart from the pack”. Following, BESTIES secured main rotation on triple j, and on air praise from artists like Holly Humberstone. Now, BESTIES bleed the 00’s emo sensibilities of Boys Like Girls and The All-American Rejects into future-thinking hip-hop production, reminiscent of artists like jxdn or nothing,nowhere. forging a sound as unique as their story.
