Introducing Didirri and his soothing new track Blind You

The incredible, Melbourne-based musician is someone you have to meet ASAP.

Australia's indie-folk scene has been one of the strongest worldwide for years now, constantly pushed forward by emerging, incredible names such as Melbourne-based musician Didirri. His new single Blind You is charming and endearing, pairing his soothing vocals with a stripped-back, acoustic guitar line and soft piano which perfectly match the singer's fragile vocals. The single has already copped support from triple J and he counts names such as Tash Sultana (who he recently supported live) as his newest fans, so why not jump on board the train too by getting to know the unexpectedly quirky character behind the incredible music. FYI: He's also launching the single this Friday at The Church of Bang Bang Boogaloo - get your tickets and more information HERE.

Tell us about yourself?

Yourself

jɔːˈsɛlf,jʊəˈsɛlf,jəˈsɛlf/ pronoun.

1. Used to refer to the person being addressed as the object of a verb or preposition when they are also the subject of the clause.

2. "Help yourselves to my new single”

3. Personally, hard to tell you about myself. However, I play music, sometimes for people like yourself. Sometimes people listen.

4. Avid vinyl collector.

5. Peanut butter eater.

6. On an average day, I don’t remember waking up because it’s pre-coffee, followed by an existential crisis and eventual determinism by around noon.

What’s the vibe music-wise?

For lovers and overthinkers only.

Production/writing process?

They say that back in the beginning of the Cold War, NASA spent millions of dollars and a bunch of years inventing a pen that worked in space, following that the Russians used a pencil. This rumour has been spreading since the sixties. Truth be told, neither of these are true as graphite is a bitch in space and so are pencil shavings. Zero g-force plus little wooden flecks equal broken equipment and sore eyeballs. I use a voice recorder. (Siri, I love you beb)

Can you tell us about your new single, Blind You?

If you’ve ever realised that you aren’t good for someone, this is a song about wishing that someone well. Even if they aren’t your biggest fan, you still know they are a good person. It’s tough and weird to deal with, but in a moment of honesty sometimes hating someone is the easy way out. Woah, that got real for a moment. Back to the abstract answers, I reckon. Send love/hate/indifferent mail to @Didirri_ on Instagram and @Didirri on the rest.

What’s the rest of the year have in store?

Everything half price in store! We’ve got singles, we’ve got EPs and we’ve got music videos. Call now and receive a free over assessment of self and a bunch of unusable voice memos. If you listen now we will throw in a long wait followed by more things to listen to. If you do choose to waste your time this year on absorbing my music please remember we have a no returns policy on moments spent. This applies especially to family members and employees at Didirri co. (CEO may be moving internationally soon) (sorry mum).

Disclaimer: Everything is not half price. Sorry, bills bills bills.

Where can we hear more of your music?

The internet is an ever broadening landscape with nothing but space for streaming. If at this stage you can’t work out how to find someone's music, I'm guessing your only music catalogue consists of a Buble CD your niece gave you a few Christmases back and “that box of old records that may as well be dead” (Seriously check out the Buble Christmas album, unashamed fan here).
