Travel Diary: Canberra three-piece SAFIA take us on tour in the USA

Canberra three-piece Safia continue to make waves and move to the forefront of Australia’s next biggest musical exports with their blend of indie rock, delicate soul, and various styles of electronica. Last year, the group travelled to the USA for a run of shows that included SXSW, and the trio kept the AU review in the loop via tour diary. Enjoy these snaps and insights from their time in the US, with photos by Damien Weatherley. And don’t miss the group in your neck of the woods – the band are currently touring the UK and Europe before heading back to the US next month!
