2018 AIR AWARDS NOMINEE SPOTLIGHT - BLISS N ESO
Nominated in this years awards in the BEST HIP-HOP ALBUM OR EP category is Bliss N Eso for Off The Grid.
One of Australia’s most-loved groups, Bliss n Eso have achieved much since 2004's debut, Flowers In The Pavement. They've broken records, won ARIA and APRA awards, staged spectacular live shows, and toured internationally.
Celebrating their third consecutive debut number one in the ARIA charts with their sixth studio album Off The Grid, the record has cemented Bliss n Eso as Australian hip hop innovators. Acclaimed as their most fearless and, ultimately, transformative record – prepping more material than previous albums and digging deeper, Off The Grid expands from Bliss n Eso’s classic hip-hop palette into trap, soul, reggae, blues, funk and rock.
Off The Grid is an album of dark and light, as conveyed through the singles – the raw 'Dopamine' (featuring Sydney electro-soulster Thief); the neo-breaks anthem 'Friend Like You' (with '60s soul great Lee Fields); and the nostalgically folk, 2x ARIA platinum 'Moments' (Irish singer/songwriter Gavin James on guest vocals) which also won the ARIA Award for Best Video in 2017. Off The Grid explores themes of resolution, resilience and self-empowerment and has just been certified Gold by ARIA.
Don't forget about our Apple Music playlist and Spotify Playlist full of our 2018 nominees.
