Interview: 1 June 2010
Tell us about your music – how did you develop your sound?
My 'style' is the result of locking myself in my recording space for hours on end and writing as I record. I layer my songs one instrument at a time, the songs really take their own shape that way. Sometimes I'll start a song with a riff or progression to base it around, and sometimes I just hit around on the drums and build from nothing. It feels very personal recording and writing that way.
Tell us about your high school – where do you play/learn music?
St. Luke's needs to be exposed to something like British Inida! It's a small private school that jumps at the chance of something interesting. Everyone sort of knows everyone, so a lot of kids have been congratulating me which is great. I've had piano lessons since I was 7, its the only instrument I was taught. I now have these lessons in the school's new arts centre which is nice and big!
Have you played live before – what can we expect from a live show?
I've played with Arcade Made and Penguin Kings live several times, but I've never performed my solo stuff. Arcade Made and Penguin Kings have collaborated live a few times and thats great fun, I imagine HHC's performance will be similar to this. I'm preparing an intersting 'team' as we speak. The stage will be busy, but thats all I can say!
What’s coming up in the future?
In the future I plan to continue locking myself in a room full of instruments and recording whatever comes out. Its a countdown of the days 'til the end of school now.Once I'm finished I'll be putting all my time into my music and trying to get it out there. It'll be nice to book gigs without having to worry about the physics exam the next day!
Australian music is?
Evolving. Australia has always idolised rock bands, but this decade looks promising for change. Unearthed really brings out the best in Australian music, there's a lot of bands on there that will be paving the way before they know it. I look forward to seeing Neon Love on my T.V in the years to come.
