Read Interview

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

Even though we're rooted in hip-hop, we've always loved to experiment. Some of our tracks are more trap-heavy, some are more melodic, some are centred around chunky guitar riffs. Having four members means that everyone brings their flavour to the table. We also collaborate and play shows with street rappers, grime emcees, R&B singers, rock bands, punk bands. We take a little bit of everything that we love - no matter the genre - mash it together, keep our fingers crossed and pray that it works.


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

Watching the sunset while riding the train from Hurstville station, and spending time with our loved ones and pets.


What can punters expect from a Triple One live show?

A couple of sing-a-longs, some high-quality merchandise, lots of obnoxious yelling and maybe a circle pit or two, if you're lucky.

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

“If a man does not have sauce, then he is lost" - Gucci Mane

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

Hunters & Collectors with ‘Holy Grail’.

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

Natalie Imbruglia with ‘Torn’.

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

Sydney Serchaz - Fuckin' Oath

Riot In Belgium - La Musique

Midnight Oil - Beds Are Burning

Fraksha - Creepin' ft. Diem & Brinks

Kylie Minogue - Spinning Around


What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?
That was actually our own gig with SCK CHX, last weekend at Waywards. It started at 4:00pm, people got rowdy, we had pho for dinner, we were in bed by 9:30pm, it was mad.

Tell us about the bands or people in the Sydney music community that inspire you?
How about this for a big namedrop: Johnny Hunter, ChillinIt, Mitchos Da Menace, Fortay, Sydney Serchaz, Turquoise Prince, One Day, Big Village, Elefant Traks, imbi the girl, Hau, Slim Set, Raj Mahal, Phil Fresh, Kwame, SCK CHX, Manu Crooks, BLESSED, B Wise, and about a million other Sydneysiders making music. Also, a big shout out to all the venues like the Botany View Hotel who host our shows and give us chicken schnitzels and/or fruit platters on our rider.

What are your plans for 2018?

In July, we'll be embarking on the 'Eastconnex' tour with our good mates, Johnny Hunter. After that, we'll be dropping a couple of throwaway bangers before releasing a very sad EP in late 2018. Also, Lil Dijon is going to get a new hairstyle, so stay tuned for that. Thankyou to triple j and all our fans for the consistent support, we love you all.

Read Interview

Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?
 
I guess that’s still something I’m constantly doing. The songs on my album were mostly songs I’d held onto since I was a teenager and so much has changed since then. I did grow up listening to a lot of piano-driven, female-fronted music but now I play with a band of twins that I grew up with and making music with people I’ve known for so long has been such a gamechanger for me. It gives me more room to play with arrangements and sounds which is fun
 
What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?
 
Lyrics are everything to me. I do write a lot about what’s happening to me at the time. But also I’m the sort of person that spends a lot of time sorting through old emotions and dealing with stuff I maybe should have years ago. Songwriting started as something I would do for my own sanity I didn’t really expect to be sharing them with people when I wrote them
 
What can punters expect from an Alice Skye live show?
 
I get told a lot that people have had a good cry during our sets. Not that I want people to cry, but it’s really nice knowing people are relating or connecting to the music. We play some heavier stuff that you could probably have a sway to, we call it 'Contemplative Rock' but I honestly don’t know what genre we’re playing.
 
What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?
 
Wow, that’s hard to narrow down. I feel really lucky to have grown up with so many strong women around me, especially strong Blak women. I was raised by a single mum, have 2 sisters and them along with my Aunties have always been examples of strength to me. I feel like their existence is just constantly feeding me advice. 
 
What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?
 
'Sunsets' by Powderfinger for reflection and 'Shade Away' Electric Fields for distraction.
 
What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?
 
That solo version of 'Heavy Heart' that Tim Rogers does or 'Where I Stood' by Missy Higgins.
 
You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?
 
At the moment maybe 'My People' by Remi or 'Savage' by Jesswar.
 
What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?
 
I watched Precious Earth perform at the Post Office Hotel last week, they’re also on Unearthed and they’re such angels on and off stage! 
 
Tell us about the bands or people in the Victorian music community that inspire you.
 
I really love songs that tell stories and two people that come to mind are Uncle Archie Roach, who is just one of the best storytellers and most inspiring person. And I have to say Missy Higgins too because she’s basically the only reason I wanted to learn how to play piano. 
 
What are your plans for 2018?
 
Heading on my first tour in a couple of weeks with one of my best friends and amazing artist Emily Wurramara, can’t wait! Also going to get back into a studio and start recording some new stuff

Sunshine, QLD

Meet this week's Feature Artist, Fragile Animals.They'll be opening the stage this weekend as our Big Pineapple comp winners.

Read Interview

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

We’re pretty much an Indie Rock band in need of some cheering up...haha! We’ve definitely got a lot of love for shoegaze and I think that’s coming through more and more. The three of us have pretty similar taste in music which gives us a common ground to start from. But, when we write songs we all pull in different directions which is great.

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

We’re just massive music fans. Hearing music that we love makes us want to write the best songs we can. Also...our day jobs suck.

What can punters expect from a Fragile Animals live show?

We’ve been told we’re more ‘intense’ live than people expect. I think that must be because we get really absorbed in what we’re doing. It means a lot to us to be a good live band.  

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

We watched an interview with Nick Launay a little while ago and he was saying that people don’t achieve their dreams because they don’t recognise opportunities that come their way. I’m pretty sure he also said you should compliment people shoes...two solid bits of advice there.

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

‘Sugar and Spice’ by Hatchie. This track is all sorts of nice. It’s impossible to be sad listening to it.

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

‘Step Up The Morphine’ by DMA’s. I mean the line ‘Sometimes I wonder why we bother at all’ pretty much sums up the vibe here.

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

‘The Less I Know The Better’ by Tame Impala. That.Bass.Line.Is.Magic.

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

We were at Middle Kids last Friday night when they played at Woolly Mammoth in Brisbane. It was brilliant. We’ve seen them a bunch of times and they never disappoint. Future Haunts and Ruby Fields were supporting and they were incredible.

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

We get inspired when we see bands/artists/venues we adore doing well...and there’s been a lot of that lately! Seeing someone like Hatchie achieving such incredible and well-deserved success is inspiring. Same with bands like Jungle Giants and Geowulf. But for the most part, it’s little things that make an impression on us. We saw Waax play a little festival here on the coast last year, the crowd was really diverse and probably not what they were expecting. But they went out and absolutely killed it...that really taught us something.

What are your plans for 2018?

So far 2018 has been very kind to us! We’ve had the pleasure of supporting some really cool bands and we’ve been pinching ourselves ever since we were announced as the Triple J Unearthed Big Pineapple Competition Winner. On top of all of that we’ve just finished recording our second EP...which means we’ll have new music on it’s way very soon, and a stack more shows to fit in before the year is out!
