What’s up sweet sweet iso dwellers! I’d like to let y’all know that every Sunday this May at 6pm (AEST) I’m going to be joined by a selection of my very hot and talented friends on Instagram Live to offer up 1x nice and probably entertaining hour (or so? 🤷♀️) for you! We will play songs and chat about how we ARE or ARE NOT coping currently. Come request all the songs we hate/have forgotten how to play so we can probably say no and play something else.🤠💐 Tuuuune iiiinnnnn 🥂 — Artwork by the queen @annie_walter
“We will play songs and chat about how we ARE or ARE NOT coping currently,” Stevens said in an Instagram post announcing the series. “Come request all the songs we hate/have forgotten how to play so we can probably say no and play something else.”
Stevens, who released EP ‘Why Don’t You Just’ last year, is one of many artists that have turned to live-streaming performances as coronavirus restrictions result in the postponement and cancellation of many gigs, tours and festivals around the world.
Earlier this month, she performed as part of the fifth edition of the Isol-Aid virtual music festival. The series has seen local artists play 20-minute sets over Instagram Live every weekend since its inaugural event back in March.
Artists who have performed as part of the ongoing series thus far include Julia Jacklin, Camp Cope, The Chats and Missy Higgins.
