Australian alternative/dance trio SAFIA released their new single "Starlight" on Friday September 21st following the triple j radio premiere in Australia on Thursday (where the song was immediately added into rotation) - "Starlight" is available today via all DSPs (STREAM HERE). SAFIA debuted the single live this summer at the Splendour in the Grass Festival in Australia to a packed crowd (watch the performance wrap-up video here). "Starlight" signifies a step forward in the band's sound as a soon-to-be classic - with sprawling vocals and an intoxicating beat, the track is primed for your endless summer playlist. Continuing to push boundaries, SAFIA has also collaborated with VR/AR artist SUTU on animated single artwork that comes to life with the use of the Eyejackapp. Download the EyeJack app HERE, tap "SAFIA" and tap "Launch AR" to watch.

"At its core Starlight is a song about letting go, and the world that it creates is designed to capture that feeling. In retrospect the song also represents an important shift in perspective, both creatively and personally." - SAFIA
