Petrol Records/UMe recently celebrated the release of short film, Original Sin – The 7 Sins featuring the songs and music of INXS.
The accompanying 13-song soundtrack features a wealth of INXS-related material, including some dramatic reworkings and reinterpretations of some of the band’s most iconic tracks including, George Alice’s edgy take on “Suicide Blonde.”
Releasing her first song at the age of 15, George Alice’s debut track ‘Circles’ took the triple j Unearthed High crown . Since then, ‘Circles’ has been streamed over 8 million times and climbed to #1 on Australia’s viral charts; hit #31 on Spotify’s GLOBAL Discovery Chart and sat in the Top Ten of triple j’s Most Played.
After striking a global deal with LA based label Loma Vista Recordings (Denzel Curry, St. Vincent, Soccer Mommy) her second single ‘Stuck In A Bubble’ was added to triple j rotation in its first week; also picking up a National Nights add on Australia’s Hit Network.

Framed with minimal narration, the unscripted short film runs close to 26 minutes and is a story of isolation and love, inspired by the songs and music of INXS, as a young woman is catapulted through the 7 SINS to find true love and heal her heart. Original Sin reflects the world’s current state of affairs and the universal quest for reconnection and romance. The short film is harmoniously intertwined with the symbolically poetic music of rock icons, INXS.
“We are honoured that our music inspired such a beautiful and innovative short film. INXS has always explored the marriage of our music with visuals, and we welcome the reimagined versions of our songs performed by a roster of contemporary and up-and-coming global artists. These versions of our songs are a perfect accompaniment to the film,” said Kirk Pengilly of INXS. “Knowing that ‘Original Sin’ was Chris Murphy’s last passion project makes it even that much more impactful. We are deeply grateful that we are now able to share Amy’s emotive and thought-provoking short film with our audience. Play it loud…”
“Amy Tinkham’s artistic vision using our music within the film is refreshing and truly inspired, the global & diverse artists who brought their imagination through their interpretations of our songs really complement the film while still respecting our original music. It’s such an honour to have these incredible artists cover our music!! I’m humbled by their passion and in awe of their talent.” Said Tim Farriss of INXS.
