Didirri

Melbourne, VIC

Melbourne singer-songwriter Didirri has been one of the most exciting new emergents of 2017. His latest offering 'Jude' is a sweet and delicate blend of powerful emotion and sombre folk your heart will melt for.

Read Interview

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

I developed a sense of storytelling and everything else kind of just fell into place. Ideas are always changing and growing and expanding so it's hard to tell when or how I developed a sound. I like to work in a cave when recording. I like to listen to very specific artists and draw inspiration from them. I learnt to trust my gut feeling a lot. I learnt to not be afraid to tell myself that something isn't right or isn't working, always remembering that things need time to simmer and to spice them up in the right way. And I keep trying to add things to tracks that are just for me and that no one may notice.

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

Greatest source of inspiration would definitely be other musicians and other artists. Just other people and their stories really. I'm reflecting on my own experiences and tying theirs together.

What can punters expect from a Didirri live show?

It will depend on whether they see me perform solo or with the band. They are definitely two very different experiences but I try to make it feel like I am always playing to each audience member one on one.

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

"If you have a plan B you don't realistically think you can achieve plan A. If you fail to achieve plan A, just make a new plan A and screw plan B" - Jack the Bear (Mastering Engineer).

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

I always go back to Paul Kelly for inspiration. He's great to get over anything you're going through. 'Meet Me In The Middle of the Air' is the song by Paul Kelly that I would recommend.

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

'Boys Will be Boys' by Stella Donnelly.

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

'The Cracks' by Peter Sonic.

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

Tom Walker and the Sick Individuals. Mesmerising.

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

Yes, yes, whatever... Hayden Calnin, Sonija Yves, Jordie Lane and Angie McMahon. They are all just being very, very real!

What are your plans for the rest of 2017?

MAKE SOME MUSIC!!! The EP is nearly done.

Meet G Flip...the drummer-turned-solo-star who blew up Unearthed. Listen to her brand new single 'Above You' here.

Read Interview

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

I literally sat in my room with my broken heart, my instruments and created every day. I stopped listening to other people’s music, which in turn helped me develop my sound. (I even disabled my car radio, so I would sing to myself lol). Because if I’m listening to jazz I’ll write a jazz tune, if I’m listening to rock, I’ll write a rock tune. I didn’t want to be influenced by what I was listening to at the time so I cut out listening to other peoples tunes. Drums are my first instrument so I think a lot of my melody ideas are based around rhythm. But I didn’t overthink the writing process too much. I didn’t think; what will people think of these lyrics? Will people like this? I did what I thought was dope and rolled with it.

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

Girls. They destroy me and I write songs about it. Also Jenny my drum teacher. If you took her out of this maze of life I have, I wouldn’t be here writing this right now.

What can punters expect from a G Flip live show?

I’ve always been the drummer, I’ve never had the chance to put my own show together and to be honest I have been dreaming of the day for a very long time. I want to do things a little different for sureeeee. You know when you’re at a gig and need to pee so bad so you wait for a low-key moment in the set to run off? I don’t want there to be a low-key moment in my set. I want everyone to piss their pants cause they don’t want to miss a single moment haha... that’s my goal. Also, my drum kit is alive. It’s something you have to see to believe. My mate Pete and I built him.

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

The best advice I was given was actually people telling me I can’t do things because that makes me really really wanna do things haha.You can’t play drums cause you’re a girl. NAHHH MATE. You can’t produce cause you’re not a producer... ILL GIVE IT A CRACK. No rules, no worries.

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

'Don’t Worry About Nothin’ by Muph and Plutonic. TUNEEEEE

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

“Blood” Like a version by Gang of Youths. That s*** was legit AMAZING. Cried instantly.

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

Absolutely Everybody by Venessa Amarosi. Such a banger. The film clips hilarious as well. She sings in front of a hammock, leans on trees and throws a LIT party at someone else’s house where they all awkwardly clap together. TUNE.

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

I went to a live RnB night in St.Kilda called RNBabe. It’s dope. I get down. The musicians who perform are amazing.

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

Gotta say the crew behind “Baked Goods” are a bunch of passionate local music fans trying to help local artists get video footage to help their careers. They are the most driven bunch of people.

What are your plans for 2018?

Release more of my music and fingers crossed I get to play at an Aussie festival. That would be crazy COOL!! WOO!!

Hazlett

Brisbane, QLD

Get to know this week's triple j Unearthed Feature Artist, Hazlett!

Read Interview

Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?
I've realised my music comes from some kind of self-therapy. I tend not to open up that much and always wrestled with being a bit of an introverted-extrovert so writing became a way to clear out my head a little. Everything really sonically clicked after I met this guy Freddy in Sweden. We spent a winter in Stockholm writing, digging through sounds, making homemade wine in the studio and managed to find something. Somebody once said it sounds a little Ray LaMontagne with a synth or KOL on valium. I'd love to believe that but those shoes sound a bit too big to fill, so for now I'm just happy for people to hear it.

What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?
People. I feel like I'm always flicking through a bit of a rolodex of memories and moments with people in my head and I lean on that all the time. I've written songs about an ex who wanted me to quit music, my mum telling me to chase music, about singing karaoke with Lindsay Lohan and drunk strangers at a bar in Brisbane to name a few. 

What can punters expect from a Hazlett live show?

I'm a really visual person so when I started this all I had a dream of the live show being a slow burn with three acts. Playing the first EP solo, the second as a duo with my drummer and the third with a full band. I want it to be a sort of time lapse of what I've gone through creatively. I'm currently in the duo phase so I'm dying to get the rest of this second & then the third EP out in the world.

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

Nobody really cares if you don't go to the party. Courtney Barnett. It seem a little tongue in cheek, but seriously people need to look after themselves out there and not feel the social pressure as much. If theres a dream you're chasing and you need to work on it on the weekend do that or if your batteries are drained there's nothing wrong with taking some alone time.

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

I'd lip-synch Affirmation by Savage Garden until you're overwhelmed by positivity or I'll do my best David Le'aupepe and dance to Let Me Down Easy by Gang of Youths until I get a laugh or you beg me to stop embarrassing myself.

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

I cry weekly listening to Odettes like a version of Magnolia. I made people listen to it on the tube at 2am once. Also Radio Silence by Gretta Ray, that song kills me.

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

Depends on the vibe of the room. I feel like the safe crowd pleaser would be Horses by Daryl Braithwaite. For a vibe generator About This Thing by Young Franco. But really I'd want to destroy a dance floor with The Door by Silverchair.

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

I'm back overseas at the moment so it's been a while but the last one I saw was the day before I left. It was a songwriting competition at Black Bear Lodge hosted by Listen Up Music, a charity for mental health and music. All these artists from all over Queensland got up to sing about mental health and in particular healing, it was so beautiful. There was an act called Collie that I think you should keep your eye out for.

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

Austen is a one woman powerhouse. Akurei is a dreamboat. Golden Vessel blows my mind with every new sound he finds. The guys from MTNS are doing a bunch of different side projects which are exciting. What Mallrat has been doing all over the world is insane. Trina Massey made the leap into politics which is a pretty inspiring and selfless move to be a voice for alot of us. To surmise, so many people beautiful people doing so many great things.

What are your plans for 2019?

My oldest and one of my most favourite songs comes out next month which is causing a lot of sleepless nights at the moment. Hopefully folks enjoy it along with the rest of the EP and I can come back home for the summer to play more shows. I'm a little homesick at the moment.

Mosquito Coast

( )

Perth, WA

Our Unearthed High winners Mosquito Coast follow up the release of their new tune 'Commotion' with a triple j Unearthed Feature Artist gold star.

Read Interview

You've just released your new single 'Commotion'. Tell us a little about the genesis of that song and what it was like to be writing again, after the recent success of 'Call My Name'?

We came up with the song at band practice and we quickly recorded all the parts on the Tascam. We've been writing stuff since 'Call My Name' but it was cool to see how the song developed this time around. I always leave the lyrics to the last minute because it's just easier and sometimes when you have them sitting around you just want to keep changing things, but we are pretty happy with how it panned out.

You recorded 'Commotion' at the triple j studios in Sydney. What was that recording process like compared to how you usually lay your tracks down?

The recording process was pretty similar to 'Call My Name'. With both songs we had quite clear ideas about what we wanted each aspect to sound like. We always have extra bits though that we add in while at the studio. Nothing's set in stone. We normally get the drums and guitar rhythm down and then we build like jam on a bass line, keyboard and stuff.

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

Watching other musicians play. Whenever we are at a gig together you just feel so inspired and want to get home and try and make something just as cool. Other music is obviously a pretty huge inspiration as well, especially when we both have such differing tastes.

What's your go-to snack when making music?

We have a lot of breaks in between long jams and they usually consist of tea, coffee and toast - usually because that's all we can find in the kitchen. We also sometimes get treated to Japanese.

What's your vision for the ultimate Mosquito Coast live show?

Lots of funky beats, crazy guitar and cult outfits. Extended jams that people can really vibe with.

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

Naomi: My brother in law once said just to do what your heart tells you and don't listen to other people, if music is something you wanna do, then do it.

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

Take Me Over by Cut Copy because how can you not want to dance?

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

My Happiness - Powderfinger or Under the Milky Way - The Church.

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

Bee Gees - You Should Be Dancing, INXS- I Need You Tonight or Pond - Moth Wings.

What are your plans for the rest of 2015 and into 2016?

We both are focussing on school at the moment but as soon as we're finished, we will be able to write more and start gigging. We are really excited to develop our live set and start playing more often.

Read Interview

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

I like to describe my music as my own personal diary. I sift through the inner feelings that i'm not able to describe and I filter that out into flowerkid. I develop this through listening to my inner voice and thoughts - I ask myself 'If this moment or feeling were in a film, what would it's soundtrack sound like?' I then shape my ideas around that.

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

Challenging myself with new experiences and visiting new places. Because with this comes new feelings, new memories, and new knowledge that could last a lifetime. With these things, I then am able to put myself into another perspective and/or time, and make my soundtrack.

What can punters expect from a flowerkid live show?

A completely surreal experience. I want my audience to feel like they are floating. I am always doing research into my audiences and finding the elements that make them feel!

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

My beautiful Mum told me, 'the positive energy you put into your world, is the energy you will receive back in times you need it.'

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

'Seaweed' by Hockey Dad.

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

'Eddy's Song' by Sticky Fingers.

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

'Say It' by Flume.

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

Not a gig - but I went the the music festival Listen Out. Such an incredible vibe. 

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

Sticky Fingers always manages to put me in a trance! They always stun me with their lyrics and their musical talent. I love listening to DMA's in the afternoon and on car rides - such a vibe.

What are your plans for the rest of 2019/2020?

Well my writing and creating never stops - so that is a constant for the new year. Before the end of this year, i'd like to finish up my new EP and a couple of singles, whilst exploring into some live performance scenarios.

Melbourne, VIC

Perth emcee/producer/singer/song psychologist Mathas is a thoughtful and skilled lyricist whose recent tracks have really impressed. He is the winner of our Southbound competition and will be opening The Sunny Stage of the festival on Saturday, January 4.

Read Interview

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

I’ve been performing and putting out music in Perth for over 10 years now. I suppose I've gradually been shaped into a begrudgingly optimistic pisstaker of world events, the Australian political climate and dietary habits. I guess I just say it as I see it.

You’re the winner of our Southbound competition and will be playing the fest in Busselton, WA on Saturday 4th Jan. What can the crowd at Southbound expect from the Mathas live show?

I’ll be playing out of a briefcase with a giant button attached to it, with some decorative props and a signature onstage goofballishness.

What are you most looking forward to about the festival?

It's been many years since I've played at a festival and also a long time since I last went to Southbound (2010) ... So getting to perform is highly important. I gotta tell you though, I'm pretty partial to the ol’ campers chai tent.

What are your plans for Mathas in 2014?

I’ll be putting out my sophomore album Armwrestling Atlas in the first half of 2014. That’s pretty much all I can think about at the moment... just get the frikkin album done.

If you had to make one new years resolution, what would it be?

Get the album done... it's been 4 years since the last one.

Australian music is…?

Far more important than buying a house.

SEASIDE

( )

North Coast, NSW

Everyone's favourite North Coast pals Seaside are taking over Splendour this weekend as our local comp winners! We couldn't be more excited. So head down early for funky dance moves, the odd confetti gun and dream pop magic.

Read Interview

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

It took us a couple of years to develop our sound and even then, it’s continuously changing and growing. When we started jamming we had all just come off the back of completely different genres so at first, it was an eclectic mix of all the things we had to offer. Then we started writing, pulling bits and pieces apart and pinpointing what we liked about them. Wavy Baby was the first EP, it’s a little slower and moodier than the next, but it’s nice to see how much the sound started to change. After we released our second EP Lover, We All Have Our Vices, we wrote 'Golden Girl'. I think we decided then that we were happy heading in that direction. Froggy joined the band pretty soon after and we started writing a little more indie but still with the dream-pop vibe. You’ll see when we release the next single!

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

I think at the moment it’s each other! We all have so much love for music and writing music that we kind of inspire each other! Lyrically I draw inspiration from people I meet, my friends, a beautiful view, a crummy day. Everything can be inspiration if you view it in the right way!

What can punters expect from a SEASIDE live show? 

We have some pretty funky dance moves, the odd confetti gun, I like to tell stories about the silly things we do, a bit of banter and a heap of feelies! 

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

I’ve been lucky enough to have been given advice from some amazing people, the most recent piece of advice I was given that stuck with me was actually from Froggy. We were speaking about how we get nervous for shows and he said "those feelings, and the butterflies, they make you want it so much more". They push you to perform with your absolute all and then you get to feel that sense of accomplishment when you’re finished. How lucky to be able to feel that rush! And he’s so right. If we never got nervous for things we wouldn’t be putting ourselves out of our comfort zone! I think it’s so important to do that for self-growth! 

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

The Round the Twist theme tune. That could cheer anyone up. 

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

I took this question as crying in a good way! It would have to be Stella Donnelly with ‘Boys Will Be Boys’. She’s so talented, I saw her play at the Northern in Byron and I cried, a lot. The boys told me ‘the Optus hold music’ is also an acceptable answer.

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

The Presets with ‘My People’! What a tune! 

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

We went to PLTS last night, they’re really great guys and are such an amazing live band, super tight and sound like they could play a stadium. I’d had a few birthday margaritas so you could say I danced pretty hard! 

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

There are so many talented people in this area, they all have so much passion towards everything they do that I am constantly inspired. PLTS inspire me because they are such an amazing live band, so tight and flawless. Also, there’s another friend of ours who is supporting us at the Northern, her name is Sophie Ozard, she’s definitely someone to watch out for. Beautiful voice, effortlessly smooth and so amazing to watch (also she’s a really genuine, lovely person)! We are really blessed to live in such a creative hub, I feel like all the musicians here kind of bounce and vibe off each other, we always go to each other’s shows and are always encouraging one another, it’s really nice. 

What are your plans for 2018?

Well, we play Splendour (ahhh!!) and then head off on our Golden Girl tour, then we’ll be dropping a new single and touring with Last Dinosaurs. Then back for more writing/recording/releasing and then hopefully a summer of shows and new friends!

Melbourne, VIC

Melbourne outfit RAT!hammock have become one of the most loved bands of 2018. Their latest single 'June' shows just how clever their songwriting is and we can't wait for you to hear it all this week on triple j Unearthed.

Read Interview

Is RAT!hammock a real band?

https://www.facebook.com/RAThammock/videos/876403699219775/ - watch the documentary and decide for yourself. (the answer is yes)

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

Wrote heaps of punk songs at the start, then decided we wanted more emotional depth so wrote a bunch of sad/folk songs then realised we wanted people to have fun at our shows so I tried to write funny upbeat songs like Dan Kelly. Nowadays I try not to think about it too much. 

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

As a songwriter I am the most inspired by other music. When I hear something great or go to a great live gig it makes me want to pick up my guitar and write. I subscribe to the idea that the best inspiration is exploration. So generally if I want to be inspired I set myself a challenge, a few strange words I want to work in to a verse or I’ll work out the chords to my favourite Simon & Garfunkel song. Normally by the time I get half way through, I’ve found something new of my own in it. This approach means I can play up to the halfway point of a heap of Simon and Garfunkel songs now, so that’s cool. 

What can punters expect from a RAT!Hammock live show?

Expect the unexpected. We’ve made a smoothie on stage, hosted yurt trivia, and have our own theme song. It’s a real time. 

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

Get your hand off the stove’ - Mum in 1999.

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

'Vitriol' by Bluejuice. Simply put, this track slaps. 

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

Alexander Biggs with 'The Worst We’ve Ever Been'. It’s a devastatingly good song. 

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

Magic magic magic magic magic magic magic magic fountain by Art Vs Science, every day of the week.

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

Last local gig I went to was Feelds’ Kill The Moon single launch. Ro and Eaglemont supported.  Every single act on that line up has the voice and the song chops to fill stadiums.

Tell us about the bands or people in the Melbourne music community that inspire you?

We’re super fortunate to be a part of such an amazing community. We’re lucky enough to have recorded with a great team in Mickey Cooper of Kilns, Sean from Obscura Hail, Hannah Blackburn and Merpire. Tram Cops release some of the most underrated music going. Tiny Little Houses, Angie McMahon and Alexander Biggs are all absolutely slaying it. Our picks for who to keep an eye on next are Hugh Fuchsen/Hotel Fifteen Love, David Western, Yes Yes Whatever and Chitra. 

What are your plans for the rest of 2018?

Oh Pep! are the best and have decided bring us along for their national album tour. I'll be heading around the country with them through December. Apart from that we’ll be doing heaps of writing and recording, getting the next batch of tunes ready for some more releases to come early 2019.
