How did you feel about your set on Tuesday night?
The guys played great! The last few shows have just been myself and Anneke (piano) doing a chilled out duo sort of thing. So to be able to play the tracks with the full band, as they are on the album, is so satisfying!
What acts caught your ear/eye?
I met some of the guys from Indigo before they played and they were hilarious. I also got the chance to chat to Stu Orchard, who seemed really passionate and driven.
Who else in the Big Splash heats are you keen to get a look at?
I’d like to check out Dream Rimmy. I met the guys at my heat and they were really funny. I think they’re playing with us at our semi, which will be cool!
What are your plans, at this stage, for the rest of 2014?
I’m really excited about our single launch for the song, Caught, on Friday, July 4, at The Odd Fellow. We have David Craft and The Lammas Tide supporting – should be fun! After that I suppose we’ll focus on the release of the album, set for later in the year. I’m still writing… so hopefully I’ll get some funds together to record a second album soon.
The Big Splash continues with Heat #4 on Tuesday, June 14, at Flyrite, featuringDyatlov, Kitchen People, Puck and Sail On Sail On. Tickets are $5 at the door from 8pm.
