Among the best new acts of the year from Australia would’nt be complete without Stella Donnelly. While she’d been rocking in Perth for a while with bands like Boat Show, her real emergence came with the release of her debut LP Thrush Metal, which just about knocked everyone’s socks off.

In an unflinching account of sexual assault, the Perth singer-songwriter provides both an enthralling introduction to her poetic plainspokenness and a snapshot of the reality beyond the #MeToo movement. Most striking is the victim-blaming critique’s abrupt full-stop, as calm assessor turns threatener: “time to pay the fucking rent”.


Her performances at the Big Sound Festival bumped her even higher in everyone’s estimations, winning her the inaugural $25,000 Levi’s Music Prize, and setting her on the path to take out the triple j Unearthed Artist of the Year at the 2017 J Awards, beating out lots of fierce competition like Ruby Fields, Alex The Astronaut and, Confidence Man . Not a bad year at all.
