Fresh off the heels of winning the Aria Music Award for breakthrough artist and best pop artist in Australia last year, singer-songwriter and producer Amy Billings, performing as Amy Shark, is about to surf our North American shores as she embarks on a headline tour spanning both coasts of the U.S. and Canada. Her latest video, “Weekends,” from her EP “Night Thinker,” shows Shark and her grocery clerk co-workers suffering the banalities of the work week, while the hope of seeing significant others after the last customer on Friday is the only thing keeping them from utter chaos (toilet paper war on Aisle 4, anyone?). Encased in heavy pop-dance production are Shark’s skills as a songwriter, showing she’s very much in touch with young love as she sings, “I took your number quicker than my next breath, I call your house phone just to listen, to hear what your life might sound like.”
