Gimmy 'Things Look Different Now' Tour

In celebration of the release of GIMMY’s highly-anticipated debut album ‘Things Look Different Now’, the band will be hitting the road on their biggest Australian tour to date, throwing huge headline shows with epic support acts in Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne, Gold Coast, Bangalow, Crescent Head, Noosa and other towns near you! The project of Byron region female artist Gemma Owens, GIMMY (pronounced "gimmie") brings a diverse flavour to her music, with infectious surf-garage and indie-rock, through to danceable post-punk and new-wave, and glimpses of folk throughout her songs. Alongside her band consisting of Samson Radici (guitar), Kyle Aubrey (bass) and Barclay Israel (drums), GIMMY delivers a raw sound with heavily lyrical songwriting evoked by her powerful vibrato vocals that captivates listeners.

In just a short few years, GIMMY has become renowned for their charismatic, high-energy live shows, scaling up and down the east coast with the likes of The Murlocs, TOPS, Floodlights, Maple Glider, Nice Biscuit and others, and even taking to the main stage at Splendour In The Grass in 2023. Now, with their debut album ready for its release, the band is excited to deliver their most exciting live shows yet.

‘Things Look Different Now’ is the epitome of what a debut record is all about; a collection of songs that showcase just how far GIMMY has come and how much things have changed — both in her life and musically — since Gemma Owens’ first launched her solo endeavour back in 2021. Through the album’s 12 tracks, Owens’ explores her own ideas and experiences of “change”, through themes dealing with relationships, ageing, life phases, success, grief and memories. The album is soaked in 80s and 90s nostalgia, with the band bringing together an eclectic collection of songs that weaves garage and surf rock, post-punk, psychedelia, folk and indie rock together, through GIMMY’s stunning voice, Australian charm and unique songwriting. Even with its musical diversity, the band’s debut is above all; an emotional, thought induced record, full of feelings that is presented with honesty and humour that is impossible not to enjoy.

“GIMMY’s new song sets a bold tone for their upcoming debut album. With Gemma Owens’ mesmerising vibrato and a mix of 80s synths and gritty guitar, it’s a sign of exciting changes ahead.” — Rolling Stone (AU/NZ)

"Off the back of an absolutely stacked 2023, GIMMY doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon." —  Triple J

Debut album ‘Things Look Different Now’ is out May 31st via Third Eye Stimuli Records.
