Ever wondered about the EDM scene in Australia? Well DJ Pebbles will be sure to make you fall in love.
This 20-year old pop DJ/vocalist from Brisbane, Australia will have you dancing the night away with her tracks. The EDM scene in Australia is huge and as she says, “Australians love music they can get up and get lost to.” She has a feisty energy and relatable lyrics as seen in her singles, “To Not Love You” and “Heart Away From You.” Not only have these been back-to-back Top 10 hits on the Billboard Club Chart, but they have an eclectic sound intertwined with her sultry voice. She is inspired by classics like Madonna, Whitney Houston, and Beyoncé, as well as current artists like The Chainsmokers, The Weeknd, and Ed Sheeran.
At a young age, DJ Pebbles’ family encouraged her to chase down her dreams and she is definitely making a path for herself in the process. From singing on all her family trips to going to school at NYU’s Tisch School of Arts and producing some amazing tracks, it’s clear that she works hard at everything she puts her mind to. Even though moving from Australia to the fast-paced New York environment was a big change that was sometimes overwhelming, it was also very exciting for her. In relation to her music, she says that “being in a city with so much stimulation has completely opened up the possibility of new ideas for my music.”
Although DJ Pebbles is a talented musician, her eccentric sense of fashion is also something that sets her apart. She has modeled for incredible Australian designers like Carla Zampatti and looked absolutely amazing at Coachella this year. When asked about how her passion for fashion relates to being a musician, she described how a “musician is a public figure, so how they dress defines who they are to the world. As a musician, I also have an excuse to dress however I want. Fashion is a form of self-expression and individuality, and it helps decorate your exterior.” She is definitely able to express her fiery but sweet personality through her bold sense of style. Her go-to’s are perfect for casual summer looks so don’t be scared to show some skin (especially midriff) and take note on her love for very ripped boyfriend jeans, check prints, and super cropped tops.
Also, be sure to check out some of her more daring looks in her music videos for “To Not Love You” and “Heart Away From You.” “To Not Love You,” a song about her first heartbreak, was a very personal song for her and this can definitely be seen by the passion and emotion she puts into the video. “Heart Away From You” is the sequel to “To Not Love You.” It will keep you on your feet and is both relatable and powerful, as it focuses on recovering from heartache. She says, “I have always wanted to star in the movie “Taken,” but when I realized that wasn’t going to happen anytime soon, I created the concept of the video,” adding an interesting twist to the video.
With the success of her past 2 tracks and her move to New York for school, you should be incredibly excited to hear what this means for her new music!
