It’s an impressive week for Aussie artists on the ARIA charts this week, as nine local artists hit the top 100.

Dom Dolla has hit a new peak on the ARIA Top 50 Singles Chart this week, landing at #10 for the first time with his hit Saving Up. Meanwhile, Royel Otis make their Top 50 debut with their cover of Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s iconic Murder On The Dancefloor for triple j’s Like A Version – the track soared from last week’s #71 to #35.

At #29 is Vance Joy’s 2013 smash-hit, Riptide, while Troye Sivan is at #32 with Got Me Started. Ocean Alley land at #44 this week with 2018’s Confidence, with the song continuing to make waves again locally.

Elsewhere, Dom Dolla and Sivan have two songs each in the top 100 singles on the ARIA charts, while FISHER appears with a track featuring Kita Alexander and Flume with Kai.

In international artist news on the ARIA Singles Chart, Noah Kahan enjoys a second week at #1 with Stick Season, while Ellis-Bextor’s resurgence has the original Murder On The Dancefloor at #8, while Miley Cyrus’s Flowers, which was #38 last week, boosted to #21 following her Grammys performance and wins for the track.

Ocean Alley’s Confidence success knows no bounds, with the group recently being tapped by the White House in a recent advertising campaign.

In a video post starring US President Joe Biden giving the thumbs up, Confidence plays as the White House cites a Market Watch report entitled “Consumer confidence climbs to 2-year high as inflation slows and economy keeps growing”.

Notably, it’s not the original version of Confidence used in the White House’s video, but a sped-up version – the likes of which have taken over user algorithms on TikTok.

Meanwhile, Royel Otis’s cover of Murder On The Dancefloor aired a month before the Sydney indie rockers release their second album, Pratts & Pain, on Friday, 16 February, via Ourness.

The album was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer and musician Dan Carey (Wet Leg, Fontaines DC, Kylie Minogue). Pratts & Pain was named after the South London pub around the corner from Carey’s famed home studio – the duo frequently finished lyrics and decided on sonic directions over a pint on a Pratts & Payne bar stool.

Royel Otis are touring in support of Pratts & Pain through February and March.
