Even if you’ve never heard a note of their music, you have to be impressed with the Sydney pop-punks in Yours Truly. In the short four years since their inception, the foursome have not only dropped two cataclysmically captivating EPs and a full-length worthy of the critical acclaim it’s been doled, but they’ve toured the world twice over with bands our generation were raised idolising, won the approval of industry icons everywhere from Brisbane to Berlin, and brewed up a fanbase more devoted than Catholics on Christmas. The UNFD-signed trailblazers are truly making waves for themselves as one of the most interesting pop-punk bands on the prowl, and they’re soaking in every second they spend in the spotlight.

The end result is one of the most jaw-dropping pop-punk records in recent memory, with melodies so hooky they straight-up glue themselves to your eardrums, and riffs so scorching hot you’ll find yourself air-guitaring along on your very first listen.

Her go-to guitar is a Fender Player Tele, which, controversially, she only picked up after she'd joined the team at Australian Guitar. Before then, Ellie was a keyboardist – thankfully, the AG crew helped her see the light…
