Tell us about your music – how did you develop your sound?
I think we got our sound from trying to sound like a bunch of really great singers and bands and sort of failing but then finding something we liked anyway. So it was all a bit of a deliberate accident. We listen to a lot of Spoon and a lot of good Australian stuff like The Go Betweens and The Drones - so something in that ballpark is what we're going for at the moment!
What should a punter expect at your show?
We have lots of male harmonies going on - people always comment on the manmonies.
Tell us about making music in the most isolated city in the world…
Perth is great because new bands always have a bunch of time to sort out their sound before anyone goes out to see them. So by the time anyone starts paying attention they're actually pretty good. And then everyone gets all excited and goes to see them and helps them out. Basically - it's a great place to hide your mistakes and a really great place to show off when you've sorted them out. It's tops!
What’s coming up in the future?
Our first EP is coming out really soon. It has 6 songs about London on it so we're looking forward to playing that to some friendly strangers. We're playing a few festivals soon too so we'll be trying to resist the urge to wear shorts on stage. We're also trying to build a studio where we can record our first album. It's really hard because we can see a brutal Perth summer on the horizon and the little garage we've built it in is almost definitely going to become a heat cauldron as soon as it gets anywhere near 30 degrees. We bought an air conditioner but it only cools half the room. I predict that we will be sweatily hanging out in that half of the room in the future. Also we don't have any money so when we say "build a studio" we mean "borrow everyone's gear and try not to break it".
Australian music is?
