Sydney’s dark-pop break out star Mia Rodriguez

Beautiful and Bittersweet

19-year-old Australian singer-songwriter Mia Rodriguez is a force to be reckoned with her unapologetic attitude, unwavering ambition, and infectious dark-pop sound.

Having cultivated a fervent fanbase on social media with over 2M Tik Tok followers and being named ‘Best New Artist’ at the Rolling Stone Australia Awards, triple j’s ‘Unearthed Feature Artist’ as well as a prestigious ‘Unearthed Artist of the Year’ nomination at the Australian Broadcasting Company’s annual J Awards, Mia is making waves as the next global pop act to break out of Sydney, Australia.

Signing with City Pop Records/Atlantic, Mia released her debut single ‘Emotion’, followed by singles ‘Psycho’ and ‘Beautiful & Bittersweet’ catapulting her to center stage, accumulating over 40M global streams.

Pulling inspiration from everything from alternative, emo, hip-hop, k-pop and contemporary pop, Mia’s unique style both aesthetically and sonically screams moxie and oozes with fearless resolve. It’s bad bitch pop meets Tim Burton does DC Comics. Like Harley Quinn in a haunted house that makes you want to party with your best friends and do something a little reckless. Buckle up for more from Mia Rodriguez – as this is just the beginning.
