Star of the Show is the group's first record in seven years, peeling back from a cast of nine mates to a record made by the band's songwriting trinity - Liam McGorry (Ex-Olympian, Saskwatch),, and co-vocalists Ella Thompson (GL) & Jarrad Brown (Eagle and the Worm). A reimagining that spanned a year of Sundays, Star of the Show allows their funky, soulful roots to come through and collide with some "more jangly" flavours in true eclectic ‘Fins form. The self-referential album title Star of the Show is a tongue-in-cheek nod to the truly collaborative nature of the record.
Rising from an alt-pop aquatic dream from the Hope/Ovens Street studio mile of Brunswick, Dorsal Fins plunged into the scene in 2015 and have since ventured into a surreal & constantly evolving sound that is all their own. 2015's debut record Mind Renovation was triple j Feature Album on release and their follow-up second album Digital Zodiac followed swiftly in 2016. With luscious songwriting and twin-flame co-vocalists at the helm, it is no surprise that Dorsal Fins quickly earned a reputation for experimental, energetic & immense live shows around the country.
