Second Idol is known for their emotive performances drenched in venom and melancholy, and unleashing a fusion of alternative rock, goth, grunge and post-punk influences. Informed by feminism, queerness and cross-cultural identity, the band transverses concepts of power, gender and otherness. Founded by vocalist and guitarist Kate Olivia, Second Idol has risen to be a ruthless, unapologetic voice and leader within the Sydney scene.

Join Second Idol to celebrate the launch of their new single Boxing Ring.

'Boxing Ring' surges with an unyielding rhythm and relentless spirit, carried aloft by impassioned vocals. As the melody radiates defiance, insisting on an unapologetic presence, the arrangement coalesces into a boundless fusion of authenticity, vulnerability and grit.

"'Boxing Ring' is a reflection on being a woman in the music industry. It can be a fucking circus. It's informed by the barriers women face in the music industry. It's about our aspirations, dreams and struggles. That women, non-binary and trans musicians are often treated as diversity trophies, novelised, and not taken seriously. We're constantly pitted against each other and cut down. It feels as though we're thrown into a boxing ring with each other, fighting for scraps, where often the more femme-presenting individual wins and men leer from every corner. Join us in the ring to fight our way out."

 - Kate (vocalist/guitarist)
