INTERVIEW : THE CHATS

This week we had a chat to a local sunny coast band that went viral this week with their hit new song “Smoko”. Eamon (lead vocals/bass) let us know what to expect from 2018

 

Eamon, over the last few days you’ve officially broken the Internet in Straya with your new track Smoko! How excited are you and has it sunk it yet?

Yeah it’s insane! The positive feedback is overwhelming and I’m stoked people are liking it. I’m excited to see what happens next with the band. And it hasn’t really sunk in yet, it was super weird seeing myself on sunrise this morning.

 

 

Honestly, not going to be surprised if Smoko becomes apart of Australian culture but I really want to know is how long it took you write the song and how it came about.

It took me like 10 minutes to write. It’s one of the most simple songs I’ve ever written, but it’s catchy. I forget who first said “I’m on smoko, so leave me alone”, but I heard someone say it when I was staying at my dad’s place in Logan sometime around December last year. It was some ridiculously stinking hot day.

You guys have a full Ep available “Get this in ya” have you guys had an increase in traffic to your band camp this week?

Yeah, totally. All of our shirts are sold out now, and people are really getting around our other songs.


Your trapped on an island with only one album for eternity, what is it and why?

Tough one. I’m gonna say ‘Butcher/Hairstylist/Beautician’ by Peter Bibby, because I just love that album. His songwriting and instrumentation are so intricate and delicate, while still remaining raw and boozy. It’d keep me somewhat sane on an island.

What message have you got for your music teachers?

We all had the same music teachers in high school, so I guess we’d all say cheers, with a firm handshake.

What can your fans expect from you guys in 2018??

More music! More music videos too. And we’re planning a tour asap.
