What is it about Australia’s Amy Shark that has engaged the hearts and minds of so many that, with only her 6-song Night Thinker EP and a few odd singles under her belt, the indie-pop angel is selling out shows throughout the United States on her North American tour? We suspect that it has much to do with the openly contemplative and vulnerable nature plus bumping grooves of her songs like “Weekend,” “Drive You Mad” and “Worst Girl.” Are we surprised that her smash “Adore” has surpassed 32 million plays on Spotify? Nope, as that just happens to be how the sold-out Los Angeles crowd feels about Shark.
