“We are extremely excited to be launching UNDSCVRD with The Veronicas and to play a role in inspiring and nurturing the next generation of Aussie recording artists. We know that music and social media are key passion points for Gen Z and younger millennials; we believe this series is going to surface up incredible talent pushing boundaries of what is possible, just like Samsung Galaxy.

“Most importantly, through UNDSCVRD we are giving the next generation of independent Aussie artists the chance to super-charge their music careers. We couldn’t be prouder of creating this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for them.”

Alex Reid, Amplify founder and creator of the UNDSCVRD format, said: “Our partnership with Samsung represents an exciting new stage in our approach to branded content integration. We’ve stepped beyond sponsored marketing, to create a native storytelling experience that naturalises branding and product into the narrative itself.”

The Veronicas will work one-on-one with each contestant, coaching and guiding them to realise their music ambitions, backed-up by Gold and Platinum accredited producer, James Angus. Having worked with the Veronicas on their latest album, Life of the Party, Angus will apply his wealth of knowledge to translate each young artist’s musical visions into a single.

The winner of UNDSCVRD will be selected by The Veronicas along with input from other industry professionals on the program and consideration given to the contestants’ fan engagement on TikTok.
