SECOND IDOL LOGO.png

 Hailing from Inner Western Sydney, and founded by

 

 vocalist and guitarist Kate Olivia in 2017, Second

 

 Idol (formerly Bruise Pristine) delivers alternative

rock-inspired stompers addressing empowerment,

diversity, political cynicism and queerness. Ruthless and

 

unapologetic, Second Idol have been making an impact

 

 on the Sydney live music scene delivering intense live

 

 performances through their fondness for fuzz pedals

 

 and fusion of alternative rock, post-punk, grunge and

 

 shoegaze influences.



 

 Founder and songwriter Kate is biracial and grew up in the

 

 country town of Kempsey on the Mid North Coast of

 

 New South Wales. She spent her teenage years longing

 

 for community through music and queerness, additced

 

 to artists such as Placebo, PJ Harvey and Interpol, and

 

 formed the band out of an uncompromising sense of

 

 social justice, feminism and emotional honesty.



 

 Throughout their tenure Second Idol has supported and

 

 shared stages with Baker’s Eddy, The Buoys,

 

 Horror My Friend, Teenage Joans, Harry Howard and

 

 The NDE, Wolf & Cub and supporting UK’s Crywank on their  2019 farewell tour.
