EGOISM is an indie pop duo from Sydney’s inner west. EGOISM formed from the teenage connection of Scout Eastment and Olive Rush, when their heated discussions about music became a drive to create something together.
Their introspective lyrics, pristine pop melodies and shoegaze influence quickly became a distinctive sound as the duo cut their teeth and assembled a band in Sydney’s thriving inner-west scene.
After years of packed DIY gigs and home recordings, in 2018 EGOISM came of age to release their debut single ‘Sorry'. The sparkling, driving dream pop ‘anti-gaslighting anthem’ landed the duo their first triple j plays as well as high rotation on Unearthed and Sydney’s FBi Radio.
After steadily gaining a live reputation supporting bands such as Last Dinosaurs, I Know Leopard and Phantastic Ferniture, EGOISM began 2019 with their unmistakably self-assured follow up single ‘Enemies’. Self recorded and produced in a single bedroom, ‘Enemies’ is lush, catchy guitar pop at its best, a double time ode to existential dread and isolation.
‘Enemies’ quickly received triple j spot rotation, and garnered an Independent Artist of the Week accolade from FBi radio.
