Adele & The Chandeliers


Adele & The Chandeliers formed in 2018 when Adele recruited Scott Mercer when volunteering at the Brisbane community radio station 4ZZZ . Scott (Harley Young and The Haymakers, We All Want To), plays electric guitar. In turn he brought in his friend Ash Shanahan (Harley Young and The Haymakers, Hands On Heart) who plays drums. They recorded German On My Mind - equal parts high-tension riffs, post-punk energy and Germanic rock throb in 2019 at Incremental Records, Brisbane. A studio run by Cameron Smith who engineered and mixed the single.

Trapped in a new wave echo-chamber, Adele's intentions in German On My Mind are questioned by Karin Bäumler (partner and bandmate of Robert Forster) who joined the recording session to deliver curious interjections in her native Bavarian.


“I’ve always had a lovely connection with Germany: I love the beer, the food, the history. I also have such fond memories of touring there with The Go-Betweens and Robert Forster. It’s one of those songs that came about quickly, easily and pointed us in a particular direction that just felt natural to us a s band.”

Adele & The Chandeliers continue to record and perform. The newest single 'Something Good IsHappening' was released March 2020, again recorded at Incremental Records. 

The 2 singles are available via Bandcamp as a 7 inch orange  vinyl record, AA side or see the Link Tree menu for all digital releases.

Album, 'First Date" to be released 2020.
