What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?
 
You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?

Q&A with Andrew Diamond Phillips...
 
Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?
It's psychedelic pop but in saying that it's all different styles of music, sometimes in the same song. It's a representation of my record collection and my experiences. By expanding my record collection and my travels and experiences, as I have changed as a person, that is how the sound has developed. And it's still developing...
 
What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?
"Everything That Rises Must Converge" by Flannery O'Connor.
 
What can punters expect from a Broadway Sounds live show?
A party that doesn't pussyfoot about. 
 
What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?
"Always empty the cache" - Morgan McWaters (our sound engineer).
 
What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?
Any song off "Man Coda" by Quasar.
 
What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?
Any song off "Man Coda" by Quasar.
 
You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?
"Midnight Man" by Flash & The Pan.
 
What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?
It was to see Russell St. Bombings play in inner city Melbourne. Being a big fan of Total Control I was keen to check them out. It was great.
 
Tell us about the bands or people in the Melbourne music community that inspire you.
Phil and Jen (the others in the group) are at the top of the list for sure. All of the other musicians we collaborate with are inspiring. Outside of the Broadway Sounds universe, we are big fans of Kirkis and Harvey Dutherland. We have played shows alongside them both and would do it again in a heartbeat.
 
What are your plans for 2015?
We are in DJ-mode at the moment, so there are a few DJ gigs happening in Melbourne and Dydney. The new song and EP are getting mixed as we speak! We are bringing the live show to Sydney really, really soon. Brisbane is on our radar too, so yeah, lots of plans.
