Based in Melbourne, this young artist uses his talent to shine with deep and relatable vulnerability. Didirri highlights every instrument of his new album Measurements with a beautiful purity that allows you to truly feel each measure. With a great live show and loyal fanbase, Didirri is inspiring widespread sing-a-longs at festivals all over the world. Didirri tells Triple J: “Each song I write tackles a different part of my own morality.

The yardstick to check myself with.” Let the music speak for itself and take a listen to “I Can’t Get Last Night Our Of My Head” before sprinting to hear Measurements out now via UNIFIED.
