RE-INTRODUCING GOVS + NEW SINGLE, 'AUSTRALIAN SUMMER'
“If a summer in Australia is any bit as amazing as this song is, we may have to relocate our entire HD operation.”
- Hilly Dilly
GOVS is the dreamy lo-fi project of Gold Coast producer, Josiah Birrell, whose new single, Australian Summer is a fitting ode to everyone’s favourite season.
The wonderfully capricious climate of Josiah’s hometown inspired him to produce a track filled with carefree abandon. Saturated in rich imagery of tropical sun-showers paired with listless, drawn out vocals, we are taken right back to those pleasantly oppressive days of cocktail-sipping summertime lethargy.

Here, Birrell lends himself to a slightly new direction in his sound. Warm layers of synths and a lazy backbeat combine the soulful charm of his earlier releases with a more youthful get-up, and electro-pop sensibility.
After winning the 2013 Josh Pyke Partnership, his breezy tunes received airtime on national and community radio, accruing a very reasonable 40K plays on Soundcloud for his first single, I've Never Seen a Ghost.
Live, GOVS take to the stage as a three-piece and have shared the stages with the notable likes of Holy Holy, MTNS, The Reubens and The Holidays.
