Bio

Horrorshow are an Inner West Sydney hip hop duo comprising Solo (Vocals) and Adit (Producer). Emerging on the scene in 2008 with The Grey Space, an album created during high school, at a time where they linked up with Spit Syndicate and Joyride to form the extended One Day crew. The album was released on Elefant Traks, earning an ARIA nomination and tours with The Herd, Muph & Plutonic and Hermitude – all before the duo turned 21.
Hot on the heels of their debut followed the second album Inside Story in 2009, solidifying their reputation for eloquent lyricism and soulful production, and striking a major chord with a growing legion of fans.
Horrorshow have enjoyed an organic rise—they’re not anchored by a passing style or sub-cultural fad, consequently their fanbase is loyal and passionate, selling out shows all over Australia.
They’ve sold out every headline show they’ve ever done in Sydney. They’ve blitzed all the major Australian festivals, loved by purist hip hop heads while proving their appeal across genres.
In 2010 they tested the waters internationally, supporting Brother Ali and Urthboy in Germany as well as Hilltop Hoods in London.
2011 saw them cement their place amongst the festival favourites playing to over 50,000 people on the Groovin’ The Moo Festival and Bliss n Eso’s Running on Air Tour.
In 2012 they supported Hilltop Hoods for a second time on their Speaking in Tongues Tour performing to massive crowds across Europe and Australia. They rounded out the year by playing a special acoustic show at the world-famous Spielgeltent at Brisbane Festival and collaborated alongside label-mates for the acclaimed Dr Seuss Meets Elefant Traks at Sydney’s Opera House.
Horrorshow premiered new single, Unfair Lottery in May 2013. It was hailed by critics for being “close to an instant classic—thoughtful, soulful, catchy” (Matt Shea, The Vine). The accompanying single launches in Sydney and Melbourne sold-out in under a week.

Their much anticipated third album King Amongst Many was released on August 2nd and stormed to #2 on the ARIA Album Chart, #1 on the iTunes album chart. It was the highest placed local release and highest ever debut for Elefant Traks (at the time). The record was featured as ‘Album Of The Week’ on national broadcaster triple j, Sydney’s FBi Radio and Melbourne’s PBS-FM. In a feature review from The Sydney Morning Herald they were applauded for their ability to “… traverse complex sonic and lyrical landscapes”. The album has since been shortlisted for the prestigious Australian Music Prize and nominated for an Aria Award and j award. Horrorshow’s King Amongst Many Tour saw them play to sold-out audiences across the country. They joined Bliss n Eso on their record-breaking ‘Circus In The Sky Tour’ in April 2014.

Horrorshow’s extended crew, One Day released their much anticipated debut album Mainline on August 1, 2014. It debuted at #2 on the ARIA album chart and has cemented their place as one of the most exciting hip hop collectives in the country. The One Day Tour will see the them perform across the biggest venues of their careers.

Early 2015 saw the the duo take their all-acoustic 'Listen Close Tour' back on the road, playing sell-out shows across the country.

Feature Album on Triple J, FBi Radio and PBS-FM

“…Telling real stories and choosing to do so with a smartly shaped music” 
★★★★ SYDNEY MORNING HERALD


“Solo & Adit have crafted up 15 tracks of eloquent, diverse and thought-provoking art”
HILLYDILLY.COM


“Solo’s eloquence is unparalleled; to hear him rhyme is to read his mind. Adit is comparable: technically adept, crisp and blessed with a neat (but not overwhelming) pop sensibility”
THE MUSIC


“Sydney duo Horrorshow encapsulate a culture with one of the most provocative records in Australian hip hop”
FBi RADIO
