Interview: 27 April 2010
Tell us about your music – how did you develop your sound?
We are all very much into music, going to gigs etc... and we all seem to have similar taste. So basically we all decided to get together and come up with at least ten songs no matter how long it took (ages) and if a song or idea gets brought into practice, if even one of us doesn’t like it, its sacked and we move on. We are conscious of not sounding like other bands, ripping anyone off and we try to stay away from the melancholy stuff, we want people to have fun and enjoy our show the same way we would watching a band. So by sticking to these few loose rules, our sound is developing and evolving pretty naturally.
In terms of gear we like the more vintage sounding amps and pedals with a bit of quirkiness about them and our beats have to make you want to move, even if it’s just a little bit.
What can the audience expect at a live show?
We really have only just started playing live so I think we could probably loosen up a bit on the performance side of things but in terms of the songs, we pride ourselves on being tight and putting everything into it. We don’t get too deep and talk heaps of shit about the songs, we try to have no more than a few seconds between each one so we keep the energy up and keep everyone interested. Sometimes we throw money out to the crowd.
Tell us about working with three brothers?
Think Gallagher brothers only worse. We all hate each other. Na, its all pretty easy. There is no real leader or strong personality amongst us, we are all good mates and we respect each other’s opinions and we have a lot of laughs. Also the brothers have no problem telling each other when they think something sucks.
What’s coming up in the future?
We just want to play as many gigs as we can and see where it takes us. We are constantly writing and waiting for that buzz when a new song pops up out of nowhere and I guess we want to headline Glastonbury and then retire.
Australian music is?
I think its blossoming and its all ours!
