Australian Athlete is the brand new project from Sydney Synth wunderkind Harry Sutherland. Diving deep into the disco-dipped 80's world Australian Athlete draws on an aesthetic that simultaneously embraces while ironically teasing fundamental Australian iconic motifs, from Jenny Kee to Kieran Perkins, Lleyton Hewitt to Kath’n’Kim.
“Australian Athlete is this country’s proper answer to Todd Terje. Taking electronica and mating it with disco aesthetics and groove-inducing obsessions, the talented artist has a new form of all-body production.” – AAA Backstage
“Sydney prodigy Australian Athlete has come seemingly out of nowhere and dropped his killer debut single Surf ‘n’ Turf a disco-dipped jam, giving us an early days Touch Sensitive vibe, filling us with that bubbly funk nostalgia.” Stoney Roads
