Dramatic, energetic, uplfiting, indie rock with a commanding lead singer. We've picked them to play Field Day - a great way to start the new year!
Interview: 22 December 2009
Tell us about your music – how did you develop your sound?
Heather: Our music is an amalgamation of each of our own different musical backgrounds. We have tried so far to approach song writing in a way that allows us to have an equal input. Thus, our sound is the mixture of four peoples' musical interests - very confused!
What can the Field Day audience expect from your live show?
A strange mixture of genres. We find it hard to classify what we do, but perhaps you should expect an engrossing musical performance that will at the same time make you dance, and cry, and smile!
Who are you most looking forward to seeing at Field Day?
I would really like to see The Presets as I've heard their live show is consistently amazing. I personally don't know much about a lot of the bands playing so I'm looking forward to just having a wander around and discovering new music.
What’s coming up in the future?
We're playing at Peats Ridge on the 30th of December, then Field Day, some south coast shows with Bluejuice and then Playground Weekender in late February. Betwixt all of this, we have some of our own shows lined up in Sydney and the other capital cities as well.
Australian music is?
Personally, I'm from the Conservatorium and I really love classical music. Although it is true that a lot of the major works are written by European composers, there are some really amazing contemporary Australian composers and the scene here for Australian classical music is growing. I urge everybody to check it out! I don't really see Australian music as having a unified sound. You can find the best of everything if you look in the right places.
