Archer Shares Her 5 Favourite Things About The Gold Coast As A New Local

Rising Gold Coast-based artist Archer makes an instant impact on the irresistibly catchy new single ‘Bittersweet’; a playful bedroom-pop anthem that details the fallout of a one-sided relationship. Full to the brim with ear-worm melodies, dynamic production and infectious charm, Archer proves she is certainly one to watch on ‘Bittersweet.

“The track itself is about going out of your way to change how you are for the benefit of someone else and the realisation that the whole feeling is bittersweet when it doesn’t work out. The story is told in the terms of a relationship that goes sour after miscommunicated expectations which makes it all a bit sassy and fun – I mean not for anyone who takes it to heart though.” - Archer

Archer has been going from strength to strength since her impressive debut single ‘Malibu’ back in 2018, with over 3 million+ collective streams and over 65k + playlist adds across DSPs. Archer tows the line sonically between Pop and Hip-hop sensibilities on Bittersweet with grimey, edgy production and fool-proof songwriting technique that has been developing constantly with every release. With a style that is sure to resonate with fans of artists like Mallrat, Sycco and Allday, Archer brings a fresh energy to the pop scene that feels simultaneously familiar and unique.

Co-produced, mixed and mastered by Melbourne Rapper/Producer Drest, the track has been in the works since 2022, and finally found its feet earlier this year with the help of Producer Riverine (Allday, 360, YNGmartyr).

Originally from Melbourne, Archer has spent the past three years between Melbourne and the Gold Coast. Now, she is fully settled on the coast and shares her 5 favourite things about her new home. The weather

"Need I say more? It feels like I’m always on holidays here. Other than that one time it rained so much that our street flooded."

Government Support

"There are a lot of government initiatives at the moment to try and build up the music industry on the coast. Not only for big international artists but also local musicians and creatives."


"As someone who likes to feature an ocean reference in almost every track, being close to the beach is something I’m obsessed with."

Arts Festivals

"The Gold Coast has so many cool arts festivals that pop up throughout the year. For example there's Bleach fest, Springtime and so many more!"

Tropical Storms

"The storms up here go all out. Big lightning, Big thunder, Big rain."
