Josh and Amy Dowdle are the Gold Coast duo known as Lastlings, a pair with a deep dedication to their craft that has set them far and apart across today’s musical landscape. The duo debuted their first album First Contact in 2020, the ultimate combination of art, tradition, and determination. Partially written in the remote stillness of a snow-capped house in the Japanese village of their grandparents’ hometown, and fine-tuned and finished across Australia, the record aims to capture emotions that feel familiar, while transporting listeners to a universe far away that feels closer to fiction than reality. The pair have scored some grand support. Championed by fellow Australian superstars RÜFÜS DU SOL, Lastlings were warmly welcomed to the band’s own label, Rose Avenue, performing with them at iconic venues like Colorado’s Red Rocks and the Los Angeles State Historic Park. They have been lauded by industry-defining platforms like Billboard, NME and Mixmag, and featured within the pages of cultural paragons like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Paper, Flaunt, and W Magazine.
