The Jezabels To Storm Into Top Five Of ARIA Albums Chart With 'Synthia'

17 February 2016 | 12:38 pm | Staff Writer

And rightly so.

Their new album, Synthia, has received hugely positive reviews from critics and fans alike, so it shouldn't surprise that The Jezabels' latest offering is set to surge into the top five of the ARIA Albums Chart and will contend for this week's #1 spot. 

The Sydney outfit's record looks likely to battle it out for top spot with last week's #1 album, the Molly soundtrack, as well as Adele's record-breaking 25.

If The Jezabels were to take out top honours, it would tick off another milestone for the band as their last two albums, Prisoner (2011) and The Brink (2014) both peaked at #2, however given the praise the new album has received, this may be the indie-rock band's best chance yet.

Over on the Singles Chart, Wollongong singer Cyrus is set for a top 30 debut with Keep Talking, while Sydney producer Flume will fight to retain the #1 position with Never Be Like You (ft. Kai).
