Today ERTHLINGS share their new song ‘Cuts & Bruises’ which premiered via triple j overnight. Lead vocalist Issy says, “‘Cuts & Bruises’ is about toxic relationships, and the fact that you can see bad things coming, but sometimes you do nothing about it“. Listen to it HERE.

Cuts & Bruises’ follows the release of their debut single ‘Bridges’ and its accompanying video directed by Cybele Malinowski, which saw the band, still in high school at age 16, catapult into widespread acclaim just over two months ago. Writing together since the age of 8, the band have been honing their songwriting and infuse their music with attitude, strength and empowerment.

Shortly after, the band played their debut shows at BIGSOUND 2018 before supporting Wafia and G Flip across three sold out shows in Sydney and are set to support Amy Shark in Sydney and Melbourne, as well as the previously announced Clairo headline dates across her Australian tour ahead of Laneway Festival in 2019.
