Australian newcomers Germein confirm they’ll be supporting Little Mix on their new UK stadium tour which kicks off this week.

As siblings growing up in Adelaide Hills, South Australia, Georgia Ella and Clara Germein have been playing together for so long that the band has become second nature to them.

Taking lead from strong artists like Haim, Chvrches and Tegan & Sara, the sisters aren’t afraid to explore a wide palate of musical styles, while keeping a firm hand on pop sensibilities.

“We love bands with a strong harmony feel like Fleetwood Mac and Queen and the edginess of Florence and the Machine and The Wombats” said Ella.

“Plus you can’t beat the fun energy of iconic female artists from over the years like the Spice Girls, Beyoncé and of course Little Mix.”

Whilst they have previously toured the world and released music independently, the new single ‘Talking’ is the first taste of a new Germein, created and recorded and produced at home by Georgia with mixing by acclaimed mixer John Castle (Vance Joy), and pre production by Stuart Gray.

Georgia said: “We realised it was time to take control for ourselves and really start making the music that we want to make on our own terms.

“We decided to record and produce ourselves in our home studio.

“When we hit play on ‘Talking’, we knew it was the musical vision we’ve had for ourselves finally coming to life.”

‘Talking’ shows Germein at their best, mixing their close three-part harmonies with a soaring break-out chorus.

The song is a strong statement from the all-female act and will launch in the UK at the Isle of Wight Festival before joining Little Mix opening fortheirSummer Hit Arena Tour 2018.

“Being able to play in front of such huge audiences across the UK is an absolute dream come true,” says Georgia.

“This year is really a turning point for us as a band. “

“We are proud that we’ve been able to march forward and prove to the world that we can make it doing what we love regardless of being young and female,”added Clara.

“Whether it’s raised eyebrows when you tell someone that you’re a drummer or not believing we really write our own material, we are happy to tackle the stereotypes as women in the industry.”

Germein will be opening for Little Mix at the Liberty Stadium in Swansea this Saturday, July 7.
