The media are not toys… they can be entrusted only to new artists, because they are art forms.
(McLuhan, 1954)

Shady Nasty

With backgrounds in jazz and classical music, Shady Nasty subvert expectations with their compelling music at the boundaries of alternative punk and contemporary hip-hop. Unpredictable, considered and dark, with a sound that stands them apart from the local scene in Sydney, the trio play energetic and raucous live shows that take an unconventional approach to the ever-transforming landscape of their city.


Shady Nasty’s set will be aired on FBi Radio’s The Live Feed throughout January 2022.
