Electronic outfit Digital Order launch their self-titled debut EP at The Bakery this Saturday, September 28, with help from Triangle Fight, Throwing Shapes and Blaze. We put a few questions to singer and synth jockey, Will Cruz.
So, tell us about yourselves.
Well, Shane (Ariti, synth/vocals) and I started jamming in Uni. About two years ago we had this idea to make an electronic rockband using our knowledge of electro and mixing that with a heavy rock kind of sound. Once we started booking shows we wanted to look and appear like a live band, so we managed to get Henry Gunson (drums) and Darryn Ball (guitar) to play with us live, which has really moulded our sound.
What’s your sound?
I’d say our sound would best be defined as electronic rock. We basically make electronic dance tracks, but try and put a heavy rock touch to it. Led Zeppelin, Prodigy, Daft Punk and The Bloody Beetroots would probably be our biggest influences when writing and performing our stuff.
Who did you record with and where?
We normally produce and record our own music, however for our EP we decided to go through Norman Solander Studios. He really understood what we were about and helped us take our sound to the next level. Everything had a positive vibe from the get go, as we knew exactly what we wanted on the EP. It was just a matter of putting
all the pieces together.
We’re planning to take our sound over east by the end of the year, and between now and then we’ll be doing a few more shows here in Perth. We’ve got a few shows in the works planned for October and November with some exciting bands, but we’ll keep people posted about that news through our Facebook. We’re also planning to release a video clip soon, which is exciting stuff!
