GERMEIN RETURN TO THE UK TO PERFORM AT ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL FOR THE 5TH YEAR

Whether jamming together on their family farm in the Adelaide Hills, playing alongside Arcade Fire at the Isle of Wight festival, or opening shows for Little Mix & Ronan Keating, Germein’s energetic and charismatic live performances have been described as nothing short of mesmerising. Luckily for UK fans, the critically acclaimed Australian indie-pop trio make their eagerly awaited return at Isle Of Wight Festival for the 5th time. The band will be performing on Saturday 18 June on the Big Top + River stage. They will also be performing at The Half Moon in London on 22 June supporting Arno Carstens with Better Strangers.

Speaking of their upcoming Isle Of Wight performance, the band say, “We are over the moon to be heading back to the Isle of Wight Festival! It’s been a tough couple of years for everyone & we’ve really missed being able to perform for our amazing UK audiences – so we absolutely can’t wait to finally share our new songs with everyone this summer!”

The band will be performing previously released fan favourites, as well as their brand new single ‘Good For A Girl’. Making a bold statement with this new track, the trio wrote, recorded, and produced the track themselves in their home studio. The song’s powerful lyrics are blended with the raw combination of edgy guitar hooks, quirky piano lines, and rhythmic vocal percussion – topped off with haunting sibling harmonies. Speaking of the track, the band say, “Clara went into a music shop to buy drumsticks, and the guy behind the desk asked if she was buying them for her boyfriend. We wanted to write a song that would help tackle these stereotypes, and give a voice to anyone who might be going through a similar experience. It’s about giving womxn an equal playing field, and not discriminating based on gender.”

Growing up jamming together in South Australia, sisters Georgia (guitar, keys), Ella (bass, electric cello), and Clara Germein (drums) have since been turning heads with their unique brand of indie pop songs and signature harmonies.

Taking the lead from strong female artists like HAIM, Chvrches, and Tegan & Sara, Germein possess the kind of close musical partnership that can only be shared by siblings. They are inspired by the vocal harmonies of iconic bands such as Queen and Fleetwood Mac, both of whom they have been honoured to previously appear with on the line-up at the Isle of Wight Festival.

With an impressive list of accolades under their belt, including opening for pop icons Little Mix, Ronan Keating, Phil Collins and Jess Glynne and being shortlisted in the Top 6 Unsigned UK Acts in a Battle of the Bands competition to open for Ed Sheeran – to name just a few – 2022 sees no sign of slowing down for the illustrious trio. Their new single ‘Good For A Girl’ was just announced as a Third Place Winner in the International Songwriting Competition for Best Unsigned Act, as well as Honourable Mention for Best Lyrics out of a staggering 21,000 entries.

Germein will be performing at Isle of Wight Festival on Saturday 18 June on The Big Top stage at 12pm, and the River Stage at 5:30pm.
