Sydney teens The Rions are earning their badge as ‘ones to watch’, winning triple j’s
Unearthed High 2021 and backing it up to take out #51 in the triple j Hottest 100 with single

They sold out their first ever Sydney headline show to kick off 2022, following stand out

3 million streams worldwide across their catalogue which also includes ‘Sadie’, ‘Head Still
Hurts’ and ‘Halfway Out’ (not to mention frontman Noah Blockley’s 8 million+ TikTok
