Where are you currently based?

We all live on Wuurendjeri land, in the northern suburbs of Melbourne

How did the band form?

It originally started  Isaac (tub smacker) and Daniel (noodler). They started teaching themselves how to play their instruments by just writing music. They recruited Carter (the basser) and Harry, (singer) a few years later and the rest is history.

What’s been happening recently?

We’ve just released the 2nd of 3 singles that we have planned in the lead up to our debut album, Amorphous.

Your latest single ‘Pelvis’ is out now, what influenced the sound and songwriting?

Making fun of maroon 5

How did you go about writing Pelvis?

All of our song writing is very collaborative. it often starts with some kind of drum beat, bass riff, or  chord progression. It happens fairly organically, we’re all self taught so we kind of just keep making noise until it sounds like a song. Lyrics usually come last and are often a collaborative effort however our singer, Harry, certainly does the bulk of the lyric writing. For Pelvis though, the vocals and lyrics went through many iterations before we settled on the ones we wound up recording.

Where and when did you record/produce/master and who did you work with?

Daniel has been in charge of recording and mixing the entire album. Drums were recorded at sound park studies in Northcote, and everything else was recorded in various bedrooms. In terms of mastering, Pelvis was done by Steve Smart at studio 301.

How did the concept for the music video come about?

We wanted something that would encapsulate a wholesome, positive vibe while also being a bit cheeky and above all, make people laugh. To us, that’s what Pelvis is about.

Where and when did you film and who did you work with?

We shot all in one day on the 2nd of January. It was just us, our actors, and our wonderful director and friend Alex Thompson shooting on the fly at a variety of locations.

How does Pelvis differ from your previous single?

Our intention with the album was to make every song sound different from each other. Pelvis is definitely the cleanest and poppiest on the album and we thought it would contrast nicely with the heavier vibe of Big Fkn Aorta (our last single) and also with the song we have planned for release next.

Who are you listening to at the moment?

ween, thee oh sees, big f.u.n, Dole Manchild, and probably others that we can’t remember.

What’s planned for 2023?

We have another single coming at the end of March, and our album comes out in the second half of April! We’re launching the album with a show in may and then will be doing a small tour of regional Victoria. We’re also currently writing songs for our next project so once the tour is done we’ll really settle into that new stuff.
