BONDI BEACH RADIO Interview

A little early in the morning for musicians but what a pleasure chatting with Ana and Boston at Bondi Beach Radio.

We talked about the new record, musical memories and favourite gigs between laughs and stripped back live music. 

Tune in.

Triple J - Spinning 'Slave Of Love (Do It Twice)'

It was a nice surprise waking up to the news that Triple J played our song 'Slave Of Love (Do It Twice)' on the night before, just after a couple of days we uploaded the song.

Head to Triple J Unearthed and write a review so it can get played again.

Big ups to Nkechi Anele for picking the track out of the bunch and giving it a spin.

Making Of Forrest St.

Making Forrest St. was more than a recording session, it was a full travel/work/life experience.

Travelling to a new country and getting immersed in the local music scene straight from the get go, it's something you would dream of being a musician.

I was lucky enough to have Pat Van Dyke producing the album. Not only he was based in New Jersey, which was a good excuse to visit NYC, but also knew all the budding and super talented cats around the Big Apple.

We met 2 hours before our very first gig and spent 5 days recording the album in his studio in the industrial area of Jersey City.

My first album.  

I've recorded a bunch of albums before either playing drums, single songs or sharing the songwriting. So I'm calling Forrest St. my first "proper" body of work. Concise and relevant, to me anyway.

I think it represents the spectrum of influences that shaped my musical path and taste over the last 2 decades or so.  I  tried to keep as diverse as I could but at the same time coherent with the sounds and production style. I also tried to keep as faithful to that space and time as I could, so this record is a like photograph of those songs and experiences. 

I really hope this record resonates with you as much as it was fun making it. 

You can now stream the album here

AV @Channel[V] #firstgig

Our very first gig as Animals. 

Summer of 2014 we got invited to play at the Australian Open of Surfing Channel V stage, and we decided to wear animal masks, which is fun right? Except is not just your first official gig but also going live on National television and internet all over the world. We play 4 songs that day and was quite surreal playing so close to the ocean.
