Live Review: World Champion's live guest mix is packed with a multitude of genres

8 August 2019 | 3:53 pm | Caitlin Medcalf

Sydney trio World Champion dropped by Purple Sneakers on FBi Radio last weekend for a chat and a guest mix ahead of their set at UNDR ctrl's 5th birthday.

Sydney trio WORLD CHAMPION are currently off the back of their second EP, Skyline. The seven-tracker saw them returning to their home at Future Classic and delivering a release that never once ties them to any one sound, instead working as a showcase for the trio's varying musical interests.

The EP dots in hints of psychedelia, indie-rock, dance, funk, slacker rock and more throughout, with singles 'Gun', 'Callisto' and 'Nevermind' carrying through these sounds immensely. Recorded between Sydney and LA, the band have put forth their most bold and explorative work yet.

They dropped by Purple Sneakers on FBi Radio over the weekend to chat about the EP, photo ops with MC Hammer and their performance at UNDR ctrl's 5th birthday party last week at the Red Rattler Theatre. You can listen back to the full chat here.
