More The Jezabels More The Jezabels

Sydney indie quartet The Jezabels have soared into the ARIA Albums Charts with a #4 debut with their newest, Synthia, making it the band's third record that has debuted in the top five.

Unfortunately, Synthia was unable to shake the behemoths at #1, #2 and #3 — holding strong since last week, it was the Molly miniseries soundtrack, Adele's 25 and David Bowie's Nothing Has Changed (The Best Of David Bowie) in that order.

The next highest local debut after The Jezabels was Melburnian soprano singer Nicole Car at #74 with The Kiss. Englishman Ronan Keating debuted at #6 with Time Of My Life, while the Deadpool Original Soundtrack picked up #18, Simply Red's Big Love Greatest Hits Edition 30th Anniversary picked up #78 and the Cats Soundtrack landed at #95. 

Following their appearance at the Grammy Awards this week, Alabama Shakes enjoyed a resurgence into the charts, re-entering at #87 with Sound & Color while Courtney Barnett, who was at the Grammys and performed on Stephen Colbert this week, jumped from #64 to #36.

Over on the Singles Chart, Danish soul pop act Lukas Graham has surged in at #1 with 7 Years (they've just spent two weeks at #1 in UK), pushing Flume with Never Be Like You back to #2. Tim Minchin picked up the week's highest debut with his Cardinal Pell diss, Come Home (Cardinal Pell) at #11, while Daya came in at #33 with Hide Away and Wollongong singer Cyrus came in at #44 with Keep Talking.
