Stella Donnelly @ UC Hub

Her critically acclaimed debut album ‘Beware of the Dogs’ was released in 2019 to international praise from leading outlets such as Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Billboard, The New York Times and more. The record was crowned Best Independent Pop Album & Independent Album of the Year at the 2020 AIR Awards, and nominated for Breakthrough Artist at the 2019 ARIA Awards. The record propelled Donnelly to new heights including studio sessions for NPR’s Tiny Desk and KEXP as well as an extensive international touring with sell out shows across Australia, North America, Europe and Japan as well as play prestigious festivals and events such as the 2021 AFL Grand Final, Glastonbury, Roskilde, Primavera, Fuji Rock and many others. Following a slew of singles (‘Proof’ with Methyl Ethel, ‘Lungs’ & ‘Flood’), Donnelly released her highly anticipated and critically acclaimed sophomore record Flood in August 2022. Like the many Banded Stilts that spread across the cover, Stella Donnelly is wading into uncharted territory. Here, she finds herself discovering who she is as an artist amongst the flock, and how abundant one individual can be. Flood is Donnelly’s record of rediscovery of the “small self”: the product of months of risky experimentation, hard moments of introspection and a lot of moving around. Reflecting on the Banded Stilt, Donnelly ultimately appreciates how when “seen in a crowd they create an optical illusion, but on its own it’s this singular piece of art”. While each song on Flood is a singular artwork unto itself, the collective shares all of Stella Donnelly in abundance: her inner child, her nurturing self, her nightmare self; all of herself has gone into the making of this record, and although it would take an ocean to fathom everything she feels, it’s well worth diving in. Fresh off the back of a global world tour including stand out festival performances at Primavera & Splendour in the Grass as well as sold out shows across the UK, Europe, North America and Japan, Donnelly finally returns home to Australia for a national tour in support of the album.Support from emerging Western Australian artist Mia June.
