Arriving just in time for summer comes the glossy new jam WITHDRAWALS from Northern Territory teen Vic August.
The refreshing summer anthem pairs August’s trademark auto-tuned crooning vocals with a funky, rattling bass-line, crossing Hip-Hop, R&B and pop wires without missing a beat.
WITHDRAWALS comes after Vic’s breakout single Bandit, which amassed in excess of half a million streams on Spotify alone, and it seems the inventive WVS artist is on the right path to eclipse that feat with this bright and bold new hit.
On the songs meaning, August says “when someone says they’re going through withdrawals, they’re usually talking about relapsing from a bad habit or drug, I took that perspective and flipped it into referencing a fresh departure.”
Taken from Vic’s upcoming EP Truths that is set to be released via WVS in February 2019, WITHDRAWALS epitomises why the teen prodigy stands alone as one of Australian musics most eccentric and exciting new artists.

At just 17-years-of-age, Darwin-based rapper, singer and songwriter Vic August has taken Australia by storm with his unique, ice-cold auto-tuned delivery and charismatic charm.
After recording his very first single at the age of 14, Vic continued to hone his craft and build a dedicated international fan base on SoundCloud, dropping a mass of singles and projects to a consistently ascending reception.
The young Northern Territory-based artist took the next big step in his career at the beginning of 2018, participating in the ‘WVS Next Gen 2018 Showcase’ before being featured in the likes of Complex AU, Purple Sneakers and Triple J’s ‘2018 Unearthed High Yearbook’ following the release of his ‘Glass House 2’ mixtape.
After ‘Glass House 2’ debuted at number 8 on the Australian iTunes Hip-Hop charts, Vic’s follow-up single ‘Bandit’earned him the cover of Spotify’s ‘Mellow Styles’ playlist, alongside appearing on their ‘A1 Hip-Hop,’ ‘New Music Friday’ and ‘R&B Feels’ playlists.
The eccentric teenager is not looking to take his foot off the gas anytime soon, gearing up to release a mass of amazing new music as a part of the growing WVS roster.
