The 2019 IAAF World Rankings document the best performing athletes in the sport of athletics, per the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) individual athlete ranking system. It was the first year that the IAAF used the system. Individual athletes are assigned a points score best on an average of their best recent competition performances. The performance scoring is primarily based on the time or mark of the athlete, plus additional points for their placing within the competition, and some minor modifications based on the conditions. The world rankings are updated each Wednesday. As of 2 October 2019, the number
Her's formed in 2015 and released their debut track, "Dorothy", on 7 April 2016. They performed on the 2016 Green Man Festival Rising Stage. A nine-track compilation titled Songs of Her's was released on 12 May 2017. The compilation received four stars from The Skinny. Writing for NME in April 2017, Thomas Smith said:
Her's were an English indie rock band from Liverpool, England, composed of Stephen Fitzpatrick on vocals and guitar, and Audun Laading on bass guitar and backing vocals. Their first full-length album was released in August 2018, following a compilation album released in May 2017.
The band later released their first full-length album, Invitation to Her's, on Heist or Hit Records on 24 August 2018. Her's were featured on Paste's list titled "The 15 New Liverpool Bands You Need to Know in 2018". An acoustic performance by the band at the 2019 South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, US was also featured on BBC Music Introducing.On 27 March 2019, around 1 a.m., Fitzpatrick (age 24), Laading (25) and their tour manager, Trevor Engelbrektson (37) from Minneapolis, were killed in a head-on traffic collision and subsequent vehicle fire near Milepost 68 on Interstate 10, close to Centennial, Arizona. They were travelling from Phoenix, Arizona, where they had played at The Rebel Lounge on 26 March, to perform a show on the following evening in Santa Ana, California, some 350 miles (560 km) away, as part of a 19-date second tour of North America. The Arizona Department of Public Safety confirmed that Engelbrektson had been driving the band's Ford tour van at the time. The driver of a Nissan pick-up truck involved in the collision was also killed. At the time of the crash the Arizona Department of Public Safety was already responding to reports of a Nissan pick-up truck travelling at speed in the wrong direction going eastbound on the westbound carriageway.
Her's consisted of Stephen Fitzpatrick, who sang vocals and played guitar, and Audun Laading, who played bass guitar while also adding backing vocals. Fitzpatrick, from Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, England, and Laading, from Flekkerøy, Kristiansand, Norway, met at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, from which they both graduated in 2016 after three-year music degrees.Fitzpatrick and Laading previously played in the rhythm section of Brad Stank's band, Sundogs. The duo initially formed Her's in jest, travelling around Liverpool to film comedic music videos and posting them on YouTube.Fitzpatrick was also a drummer but the band used a drum machine, of which both members contributed to its programming.
Her's are not a group to stand still. Each song they produce, from the lo-fi bedroom pop power of debut track to 'Dorothy' to the duo's equally melodic take on slacker-rock on 'Marcel', sees the Liverpool-based duo shift and float between sounds. Never really fitting into one genre, but somehow nailing whatever they end up doing.
