Get to know this week's triple j Unearthed Feature Artist, Chelsea Manor.

Read Interview

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

I think triple j said it best when they referred to us as their moody siblings diary brought to life, I guess we’re kinda like a bag of starburst party mix but instead of sweets it’s a mix of emotions. We were playing in a band together called The Skategoats, so I guess on the end of that we started to own our craft a little more and really find our own sound and place.

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

The greatest source of inspiration for making music, I think comes from our everyday life and experiences. In my case it’s very easy to tell what I’m going through at the time based on what I’m writing about. As for the music side, we draw our inspirations from everyone around us making music.

What can punters expect from a Chelsea Manor live show?

A lot of mistakes? Haha nah a high energy set, catchy choruses and some questionable dance moves coming from Ivan our bass player.

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

It’s gonna sound cliché but the usual treat people how you wanna be treated, it’s really easy to be in your own space and not see how your actions can be affecting those around you. My Dad taught me that.  Also I remember reading something that really stuck with me “It’s so easy to not like something without putting it down” and every since then if I’m not really into the style or it’s not my thing I’ll find the positive in it.

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

‘Out of Luck’ by Loser, I’d go by my mates pick them up chuck this track on in the car and just drive!

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

‘I’ll be fine’ by Larsen but it’s not let sit down and cry, it’s like lets chuck the track on, headphones walking in the rain screaming the words at the top of the lungs kinda crying.

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

‘Safe To Stay’ by Towns, because how GOOD is that track?! I can just see everyone screaming the “time goes on, whether I do or not” in the middle of the floor.

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

It was actually our local Battle of The Bands, which was wicked because we have such a large community of musicians and it’s always great seeing each one of them up there on the stage doing their thing.

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

Where do we even start haha there are so many people doing great things and we all play our part. I think anyone out there giving it a go is inspiring. !e’re always keen to see new bands or new music. Just watching people grow and own their craft is amazing.

What are your plans for 2019?

We’ve got shows booked in until early November, then we’re back in the studio (The Alamo) with Tyson Fish & Aaron Damon (Captives) to finish off our debut EP ready for 2020. More shows, more music and lets see what we can do with it.

Read Interview

Tell us about your music - how did you develop your sound?
Our music is pretty diverse from song to song and it has taken us a long time to figure out the music that we really want to make. We listen to as much music as we can and spend a lot of time tinkering around on synths and whatever else we can get our hands on.

You’re one of the winners of our Laneway competition. What can the crowd at Laneway in Fremantle expect from the Crooked Colours live show?
Live drums, hard-synths and three sloppy rigs.  

Who are some other Australian bands/artists that everyone should be checking out this year?
Oscar Key Sung, Deja, PALACE, Safia, Yeo…. ect. You can pretty much throw a stick in Australia and chances are its gonna land on a talented muso right now.

What are your plans for Crooked Colours in 2014?
A fresh EP and a butt load of touring! The first of which will be an Aus tour late February with stops in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide.

Australian music is…?
...hotter than a sausage sizzle at Bunnings on a Sunday!
