Melbourne future R'n'B studs Fortunes are getting up in your hair this week.
Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?
Coming from different musical backgrounds (pop/soul/jazz vs hip-hop/electronic/hardcore) but with similar ambition, we developed our sound through a lot of trial and error over a cask of wine.
What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?
People, mates, lovers, dickheads.
What can punters expect from a Fortunes live show?
Lots of dancing (dirty dancing), hot people, personal stories.
What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?
Protect your heart, turn it into art. Thanks Gemma.
What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?
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?
What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?
The Tarantinos at Luwow. It was wild, a chick got her *** out.
Tell us about the bands or people in the Melbourne music community that inspire you.
Hiatus Kaiyote - Nai Palm is explosive.
The Harpoons - Rebecca's on some high-pitched Australian Amy Winehouse level.
What are your plans for 2015?
We're looking at jumping on a couple of tours and playing some festival spots which is gonna be sweet. We’ve almost finished writing EP#2, so aiming to get that out mid-year.
Brisbane two-piece The Phoncurves are getting quite the name for themselves, making striking acoustic pop songs with mesmerising harmonies and springy instrumentation.
