How did you feel about your set on Tuesday night?
Well we feel pretty good now, but on the night it was kinda strange. Probably just nerves, and the fact that we were following some very talented and diverse acts. After the first couple of songs I think we all started to feel a bit more comfortable.
What acts caught your ear/eye?
To be honest, they all did for different reasons. Chances Tribe had such a polished sound, and solid musicianship. FINDERS were very engaging, they really grabbed the crowd by the short and curlies. Last but not least, Ice Age Sugar had some very catchy rhythms and melodies.
Who else in the Big Splash heats are you keen to get a look at?
I’ve been trying to catch an Old Blood set for a while now, but have always been double booked. So that’ll be fun. I’m also a big PUCK fan so will definitely head along to their semi final.
What are your plans, at this stage, for the rest of 2014?
Our calendar’s looking pretty full at the moment gig-wise. Aside from that we are hoping to record and release our first full-length album. Ben (Protasiewicz, voclas/guitar) is constantly writing new material so I’m very keen to lay some of it down and get it out there.
The Big Splash continues with Heat #6 on Tuesday, July 8, at Flyrite, featuring Kid XL, Old Blood, Sam Wylde and Sprawl. Tickets are $5 at the door from 8pm.
