So you've just been announced as the winner of the 'High School Hero Comp' for Beach Sounds Festival, July 14th - Can you tell us how your feeling right now?
Yeahhhh, we’re heaps heaps stoked about being chosen to play at Beach Sounds 2018. So many amazing bands that were keen to see aswell, it’s gonna be a time
Can you tell us about the the entry process?
So to enter you just had to send an email to the Festival organisers with links to your music, socials and some live videos, aswell as telling them in 50 words why you should play Beach Sounds.
When and how did you find out you had won?
Uhh, well I got a call from one of the dudes from Lennox Groove one night after school and he was pretty much like ‘Hey you’ve won the Competition to play at Beachsounds’
Tell us about 'Letterman' whats it about?
I guess you’ll never know, take what ever you hear from it and whatever you think up of that’s what it’s aboutttttt
Was it hard to keep a straight face in the film clip? Was it paint haha?
Ahaha, yea it was heaps hard to keep a straight face. I had Liam and Ruben on either side of me chucking Coloured Powdered milk at my face. I think the hardest part about it was that it had to be done in one take so no matter how much powdered milk was in my eyes or ears I had to keep going because we only had one shot at it.
Is Beach Sounds Festival your first festival?
Hmm it’s not the first but this is definintly a stand out festival for us with so many amazing names on the lineup!
Who are you most excited to see and play with at Beach Sounds?
Hmmm, well basically we’re diggin the whole lineup so we’re keen to see everyone playing but some stand outs would be bands like Voiid and Concrete Surfers we’ve been listening to a shit tonne of there stuff
What's install for the rest of 2018?
Were just gonna do a heap of demoing and writing, hopefully get together a few songs for an EP or something, but yeah just a heap of recording and writing.
Can you tell us who you guys are most influenced by?
Well we’re all influenced by different people and bands but one person that probably covers us all under the many different people and bands we’re influenced by would probably be Dave Grohl, that man has done it all.
We've asked you to pick your top 10 songs, can you tell us about one of them and why its so influential to you as a band?
Ahahaha, Now for the 3 of us to pick 10 songs that we could all agree on is hard. We all listen to so much different music that we we’re saying ‘Nah that’s shit’ and ‘Nah bullshit it’s good’.
Ok down to the good stuff... Would you rather lick a hairy mans arm pit or cover yourself in honey and roll around in the sand?
Lick a hairy mans arm pit, no doubt
Would you rather listen to nickleback on repeat or read the iTunes terms & conditions front to back?
Read the iTunes terms and conditions, to easy
What was the last thing you googled?
How to make a good pesto pasta. Ended up making a pretty good pasta aswell
Describe your band in 3 words for us?
