Brisbane is a thriving scene. Lot’s of people don’t realise it but Brisbane has a huge amount of bands that are yet to be discovered (ie. Pool Shop, Cloud Tangle, Concrete Surfers, First Beige, Keeskea). Because the live scene in Brisbane isn’t as widespread as that of Melbourne or Sydney (physically), lots of people tend to go to the same venues which has resulted in lots of people within the scene becoming friends and supporting each other. This end up meaning more diversity in the scene and loyalty to the community that you don’t find too many other places.
We are lucky enough to have the best photographer in the world take lots of photos of us and everyone should go and look at their instagram (@seamus.platt)
We have been loving the discussion on how to increase diversity and inclusivity in the scene and have spoken about how we want to be a part of that in our own practice as a band. Having a woman in the band may have affected whether we’ve been booked for things, but it’s hard to say. The shift hasn’t affected us in any direct way that we know of – but if we were to be overlooked for a show in favour of an act with more diverse members we would support that 100%. It’s really important to support the scene in any way possible, as well as to acknowledge the privilege you have.
We would LOVE to play Laneway so much – the lineups are always so incredible. We haven’t thought much further beyond that.
We have been lucky enough to play with a bunch of incredible bands! A couple include Camp Cope, Jen Cloher, Miss Blanks, Julia Jacklin – they are all such strong acts and admirable for so many things. I (Mon) had a bit of stagefright when talking to all of them because I was too excited to be playing with them all. It was incredible.
