Interview: 5 March 2012
Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?
The key to our sound really lies in the guitars and vocals. Very crunchy, very powerful and very catchy. Also, the keys add another layer to what we’re doing texturally. And with two drummers, it gives us an opportunity to pull off some really unique rhythmical stuff that a lot of bands could only do in the studio with overdubs.
You’re the winners of our PUSH OVER Festival competition. What can PUSH OVER revelers expect from the Money For Rope live show?
Hits, hits and more hits. And a lot of energy. I won’t give too much away for those who haven’t seen our shows before. BUT. Bring Gatorade…for us… Please.
What are you most looking forward to about PUSH OVER on March 12th? Who are you psyched to see?
I think mostly we’re really looking forward to playing alongside some great names at the convent. It’s a great space and an even greater lineup. We have played shows with Eagle & The Worm, Red Coats, Yacht Club DJ’s and 8 Bit Love before so it’ll be a great chance to catch up. Also looking forward to seeing how Parkway Drive and 360 work the crowd.
What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?
‘Two drummers?! Sweet! Keep doin’ that’ – Wally De Backer
What’s coming up for you in 2012?
We’ve just recorded an album with Steve Schram. He’s worked with some incredible bands (Vasco Era, Clairy Brown, San Cisco) so it was great to hang out and get his spin on our tracks. The album should be out in the next six months. Apart from that, we’re shooting a video and playing as many shows as we can.
Australian music is…?
A massive (and growing) part of the worldwide music industry. Look at Gotye. His success internationally has really shown the world that we’re a creative force to be reckoned with; and his drive and passion are going to inspire a lot of young creative minds.
