Perth, WA

Perth super ladies Dulcie wow'd us with their debut single 'Fall' and we can't wait for you to hear it all this week on triple j Unearthed.

Read Interview

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

I don’t think any of us quite know how we developed Dulcie to sound the way it does. It’s really been such a subconscious fusion of all of the music that the four of us have ever listened to or been inspired by individually. At any given time, any one of hundreds of potential influences could shine through and push our sound in another direction. Hopefully that will be something that people will continue to find interesting about listening to our music. At the moment we’re really exploring how to incorporate multiple-part harmonies and that's always been a pretty consistent idea for us all. 

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

Definitely each other and our personal and combined love for music. We all really egg each other on in rehearsal and write music together so I think it’s probably fair to say that our biggest inspiration is other musicians and the ability to inspire and collaborate with each other. Songs come together that much quicker when you’ve got three other people in the room getting hyped up over your ideas.

What can punters expect from a Dulcie live show?

You can definitely expect a few laughs, we don’t take ourselves too seriously on stage so punters can expect a bit of a giggle with/at us for sure! You can probably expect to have a bit of a dance and maybe some cheeky sing-a-longs and clapping on the beat too- we love that stuff!

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

As silly as it sounds, my mum has this frame full of motivational quotes hanging above our toilet at home and there is this one quote that says “Fill your life with experiences, not things. Have stories to tell, not stuff to show.” I feel like this has always been a really important thing in reminding me to choose what I want to do because I love it rather than what will give the biggest instant reward. This whole philosophy has definitely helped more than one musician in my life to decide to either study music or commit their time to writing and making music, follow their dream because they love it and want to have the experience, not necessarily the money or the fancy degree. Touring and playing music is the biggest source of cool experiences and stories to tell so it’s pretty relevant to all of us.

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

100% ‘Exactly How You Are’ by Ball Park Music. It’s got me smiling after the first sentence every single time, it is the most wonderful song and sometimes people need a little reminder that it’s okay to be who they are and they “don’t have to swim upstream”.

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

That’s a tough one! We’re gonna have to go with Sawteeth by Spacey Jane. It’s just a beautiful song and you can’t help but shed a few tears to it. If you haven’t checked them out, prepare yourself for some of the most beautiful songwriting ever.

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

Surely it would be a sin not to put on ‘Let It Happen’ by Tame Impala. Not sure about everyone else, but we’re never at a party that doesn’t get around a bit of a boogie to that huge tune.

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

I think the last one was probably the Across The Road Music Festival in Bunbury (that’s down south, does that count?). We played a little festival down in Bunbury at the start of the month with a bunch of other Perth bands and it was SO FUN. Every single band or artist that performed killed it, there were little op shop stalls, food trucks, pop up bars and the whole thing was zero-waste. Basically it was everything you could ever ask for.

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

The list of people in Perth that inspire us goes on forever and ever. Within our little family at Across The Road Music there is a really inspiring space to create in. We have some great mates in some great Perth bands (Wooly Mammoth, Great Gable, Carla Geneve, Death By Denim, King Ibis, Lilia, Grace Armstrong- the list goes on). It’s always been a pleasure to play and hang out with everybody that we have had the chance to so far and there is certainly no lack of inspiration in the Perth music community.

What are your plans for 2019?

2019 is shaping up to be a big one! We’ll definitely be jumping into the studio and putting out some new music. Starting this week, we’re going on our first ever national tour with our good friends (and amazing Perth band) Great Gable so we’re all super keen for that! Every day things change and become bigger and more exciting so we’re keeping it pretty chilled out while we do this tour and hopefully over the next few weeks we’ll get a bit more of a detailed idea of what this year holds for us.

Read Interview

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

our music has been inspired by a lot of the pop punk bands we listened to growing up! We like powerful sing along choruses and energetic guitars. Our style has developed over the years through writing lots of songs and each of us listening to heavier and poppies music.

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

Greatest source of inspiration can come from things we experience whether they be good or bad and that can ultimately determine the mood of the song

What can punters expect from a Yours Truly live show?

Sing alongs, guitar spins and crowd surfing

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

"No matter how hard some things may seem, never give up. The good will always shine through", by Mum & Dad.

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

'Dakota' by Between You & Me

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

'These Days' by Powderfinger

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

A mash up between "what about me" - Shannon Noll and "Am i ever gonna see your face again" - The Angels

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

Last gig i attended was Sinclaires Debt, which they sold out! It was awesome, great band and great people

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

The Faim, Between You & Me, Stand Atlantic, Down for Tomorrow, The Dead Love, Ocean Grove, Tonight Alive - There's too many to name

What are your plans for 2019?
