Adelaide band Teenage Joans wins triple j Unearthed High
triple j has announced the winner of its 2020 Unearthed High competition, Adelaide’s Teenage Joans.
Over the past two months triple j Unearthed has been busy searching for the country’s best high school-aged music makers.
Teenage Joans hail from Gleeson College in Adelaide, South Australia, and are fronted by Tahlia Borg and Cahli Blakers.
Over the past two years they’ve already supported the likes of Ruby Fields and The Hard Aches on tour, and played over 60 live shows in 2019.
Their winning entry is a hard-hitting track called ‘Three Leaf Clover’.
“The Adelaide duo rose to the top of the class this year showing stacks of potential to make a mark on the Australian music scene,” triple j Unearthed Music Director, Dave Ruby Howe says.
“On ‘Three Leaf Clover’ you really get a vision of what is ahead for the band. You can already picture the heaving moshes at their live shows, loose road trips in the tour van, and the cult fandom that’s sure to spawn stan accounts and inspire tattoos of their lyrics.”
Previous winners of triple j Unearthed High alumni like KIAN, Gretta Ray, George Alice, Montaigne, The Kid Laroi, Hockey Dad and Arno Faraji.
Teenage Joans were surprised with the news at their school, with the virtual reveal to hit triple j’s socials tomorrow.
