Despite never having played any shows Down Under, Australia remains the group’s third biggest streaming country, with thousands of listeners in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane liking the verve in their Chicago sound (read their recent Tone Deaf interview here). 

The duo – smooth producer Ne’el Shehade and ever-sterling vocalist Via Rosa – had quite the 2023, including a notable appearance at Coachella and the release of their EP titled, Till We Die. They also collaborated with Sydney DJ duo Flight Facilities, further expanding their fanbase on this side of the world.

Now a little more about their music – DRAMA blend electro and dance genres, bringing infectious and intricate production. Their live shows are high-energy and designed to get you moving and grooving. Interestingly, Shehade revamps their songs for live performances, giving audiences an exciting and fresh experience beyond their studio recordings.

Since their inception, DRAMA have honed a unique sound, releasing EPs such as Gallows and Lies After Love. They gained recognition with their debut album, Dance Without Me, back in January 2020.
