Lastlings 2020

Lastlings

Self taught musically, the Japanese-Australian pair has devoted the better part of five years to their craft, fine tuning their songwriting and production from their home in the hinterlands of Southern Queensland.

“Take My Hand” arrives as their first release of 2020, showcasing their multi-genre sound by crafting a driving electronic beat complemented by strong pop songwriting and effortless vocals. In the emotive video, the lyricism comes alive in an Inception-esque world where the pair operate a mind-altering transportation device that sends people into moments in time that they wish they could revisit for better or worse

The self-taught musical duo have risen the ranks over the last five years, from releasing their own EPs to signing with major labels. During 2019 alone, they produced remixes for buzzy British producer SG Lewis on his hit track “Flames” and fellow Aussies RÜFÜS DU SOL on their acclaimed single, “Solace,” which was featured on the band’s latest remix package alongside tastemakers like Hot Since 82, Justin Martin and Edu Imbernon. Their recent originals on RÜFÜS DU SOL’s Rose Avenue imprint, “Last Breath” “I’ve Got You” and “Deja Vu”, have earned them over 35 million streams globally. Lastlings made their mark last year with unforgettable performances at some of the largest venues and festivals in the world, including Red Rocks, LA State Historic Park and Coachella.

Amy and Josh originally transitioned into music from the world of modeling while they were still in high school and college, performing in garage bands between earning diplomas and styling for shoots. Their melodic electronic and abstract lyricism has evolved over the years, grabbing the attention of diverse fans and tastemakers alike including W Magazine, i-D, Esquire, among others.
