Is this the similarly pissed off sister song to Kira Puru's Molotov? It's got 'tude in generous supply along with some jittery rhythms to keep you hopping.

    WING DEFENCE

    Adelaide, SA

    Meet Skye and Paige, the two that make up Adelaide duo and your new favourite band, WING DEFENCE.

    Read Interview

    Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?

    We've always both been fans of the pop rock genre. We listen to a lot of Tegan and Sara, Alex Lahey, Paramore, killing Heidi and Courtney Barnett etc etc and I think our style kind of sits somewhere in between all those influences. A lot of our sound has been developed in the studio after sharing a lot of big emotional spills and a lot of big laughs.

    What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?

    For the most part I think personal issues that we can both relate too or empathise with in different ways is where the inspiration for our songs come from.

    What can punters expect from a WING DEFENCE live show?

    High energy, netball banter, orange slices, gang vocals and hopefully just a lot of fun for those attending. 

    What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?

    "Turn your head winds into tail winds", which is always a great one to follow for a neat perspective change.  

    What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?

    'Strawberry Kisses' by Nikki Webster.

    What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?

    'Into my arms' by Nick Cave.

    You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?

    'Calypso' by Spiderbait. 

    What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?

    We both went and saw God God Dammit Dammit and The grenadiers play their 10 year reunion show last weekend in Adelaide. It was epic, so much energy on stage by both of those bands. 

    Tell us about the bands or people in the Adelaide music community that inspire you.

    There's a lot we could list here. We're really proud of the Adelaide scene that's emerging at the moment. We're obviously big fans of our mates in West Theb, they're  doing really great things and we're very proud of them. Another SA band who we're both excited about are Electric Fields, we love what they're doing and creating and they've always been a stand out to see live!

    What are your plans for 2018?

    We've been writing heaps of new music and will have another single for people to hear soon. We also have some really exciting touring plans for the later half of the year which we can't wait to announce!
