Perth quartet Childsaint are are all about fuzzed out guitars and layered vocals. We're all about Childsaint.
Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?
Jane and Chloë have always had a mutual understanding of writing lyrics implicitly, that's what sparked the beginnings of Childsaint. Ashlyn and Rhian enriched the whole collaborative process, it always feels so diverse and makes playing together so enjoyable. Songs are always half written 'skeletons' when they're brought to the band and we build it all together.
What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?
Chloe answered this with "the heart and the universe", and I read it as the heat death of the universe, so lets go with both of those things.
What can punters expect from a Childsaint live show?
Fuzzed out guitars and layered vocals. Things get dreamy, sometimes a little introspective. You'll probably drink some whisky (we will too) and you might lock eyes with the cutie across the room.
What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?
Once this guy interrupted the middle of our jam to offer his advice and knowledge about music. This inspired us just to ignore the prejudice that inevitably surrounds music scenes and to keep just doing what we are doing. Thanks, guy!

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 last gig we went to all together was WAMi fest! We had such a great day walking around the city surrounded by a huge range of excellent West Australian music.
Tell us about the bands or people in the WA music community that inspire you.
It's a tight, lovely, helpful community. We are surrounded by a lot of very talented musicians, people that are constantly creating and getting a lot of pleasure out of it. There's no greater inspiration than watching someone do what they love, and that happens at every local show we go to.
What are your plans for the rest 2014 and in to 2015?
We are supporting the wonderful Husky on the W.A. leg of their tour this month, and couple of local shows with a bunch of babes before the end of the year. Next year we're thinking of more recording, and hopefully even a little trip over to the eastern states to play some shows!
