This week’s PBS Feature Album is Senseless Acts of Beauty, the highly anticipated debut album by Rowena Wise.

The Naarm/Melbourne based artist is known for creating music ruminating on love, alienation, and self-empowerment. A new zenith, Rowena's songs are full of emotional depth, and by allowing a searing honesty to run throughout, she’s being true to herself and the listener, holding space for all of life’s wonder and mess. Over the album’s 10 tracks, she offers heady ruminations on love, loss, and alienation yet counters them with warmth, courage, and empowerment. 



Having gained a burgeoning reputation over the last few years as both a lyricist and performer, Rowena  is opening her songbook up to the world. Inspired by the strong storytelling sensibilities of 60s folk icons and making a sound that sits her snugly alongside the likes of Aldous Harding, Julia Jacklin, and Waxahatchee, Rowena found her spark during a down moment while traveling at the end of a relationship.

Tune in all this week to hear tracks from Senseless Acts of Beauty and PBS Members have the chance to win a copy of the album on vinyl, simply email your name and membership number to   before midnight Sunday June 9. Please note vinyl giveaways must be picked up from the station in Collingwood.
