Overachieving Sydney-based singer-songwriter Alex the Astronaut (aka Alexandra Lynn) is thrilled to announce her national headline tour today.
The ‘Space Tour’ will hit venues in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney and Perth this November. Alex will also stop by Tasmania for triple j’s One Night Stand, Yours & Owls Festival in Wollongong, and has recently been announced on the Shakafest lineup which will take place on the Gold Coast in November.
In 2017, Alex the Astronaut shared her debut EP To Whom it May Concern. Featuring breakout tracks ‘Already Home’ and ‘Rockstar City’, the EP was written and recorded all while she was completing her science degree on a soccer scholarship in New York City. A one-way ticket to Sydney spawned the release of her sophomore EP See You Soon. Championed by triple j, the release included sleeper hit ‘Not Worth Hiding’, which placed #23 in this year’s Hottest 100.
Well-known and loved for her now-signature, spritely acoustic strumming and conversational storytelling, the ‘Space Tour’ announcement comes off the back of what has been a hectic 2018. Kicking off the year with a sold-out co-headline national tour alongside Stella Donnelly, Alex then went on to perform at the UK’s The Great Escape, Prima Vera in Spain, Spin Off Festival in Adelaide and at Byron Bay’s Splendour in the Grass.
In July, Alex also shared her latest track ‘Waste of Time’. The single was added to full rotation on triple j with support also rolling in from BBC Radio 1 (Huw Stephens) and Radio X (John Kennedy). In October, Alex will support Sam Vance-Law in Germany and play a string of UK/EU headline tour dates
