Amy Shark goes ARIA Gold… Twice
Australian indie pop singer-songwriter-guitarist’s latest single Everybody Rise has just gone ARIA Gold according to the artist online. Talking about her new big sound, “I’m definitely no stranger to that feeling, which is kind of sad,” she told Triple J Drive radio. “But I like how I tackled it in this song, it really makes everyone feel like they’re in it together”.
According to the artist, the song is from an album that was nearly done “before corona hit. I got to spend a lot of this time really perfecting everything”. She is not new to artistic success, her 2016 single, “Adore”, peaked at number 3 on the ARIA Singles Chart and was also listed at number 2 on the Triple J Hottest 100, 2016. Her album Love Monster (July 2018) debuted at number 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart. Shark has won 6 ARIA Music Awards from 19 nominations, including winning Best Pop Release twice: in 2017 for her extended play, Night Thinker, and in 2018 for Love Monster.
“You are all amazing! EVERYBODY RISE has today been certified GOLD! Oh and Psycho has also just gone GOLD as well!”
