We Interview Paper Kites


After creating a colossal buzz around the globe with their debut EP, Woodland, Melbourne indie-folk five-piece, The Paper Kites are back with a new offering, their Young North EP. The band will be celebrating the release with a national tour that will kick off in NSW on October 11, making their way around the country and finishing up with homecoming shows in VIC in early November. Lisle recently got to catch up with the Paper Kites.


We Interview Evermore


Evermore release their fourth studio album, titled Follow The Sun. It arrives after a two-year hiatus during which time they toured the world, sating a wanderlust that inspired the foundation of the new record. Back home, brothers Jon, Pete and Dann Hume built a full service studio on their farm property outside of Melbourne, and wrote, recorded and produced an album full of lush tones and skyward harmonies. There are a triumphant march of highs throughout the record that in true Evermore style evokes a sense of grandeur, youthful energy, indomitable spirit and a constant yearning for human connection. There is something kinetic about the brother’s Hume, and their songs reflect just that, alarming velocity captured in freeze frame. To mark the bands return, Evermore are premiering their new material in a series of shows at classic music venues around the nation, including Brisbane’s The Zoo on the 19th of September. Jon and Pete caught up with Bailey on the comfy couches down at Kerbside in the Valley.


We Interview Strangers

strangers 2012

In Brisbane for the 2012 BIGSOUND Music Conference, Sydney young guns STRANGERS have made astoundingly clear that their strike on the Australian music industry is anything but atypical. Vocalist Ben Britton’s overwhelming control in tempo rises and falls during anthemic climaxes and rewards with subtle dark progressive details buried in layers, while guitarist Barnes’ gnashing riffs possibly destroy fingers bone deep, constantly interspersed by severe cymbal hits and arduously violent blasts of the kick drum. Their debut release is a pounding menace tiered with brooding atmospherics, resilient melodies and tensely dynamic production amid an under-current of authenticity that’s hard (though admittedly not impossible) to fake. STRANGERS withstand uncomfortable comparison as the execution of their debut record Persona Non Grata proves to overthrow the shadow of veterans they’ve been ubiquitously compared to. Charming lead singer Benny Britton and guitarist Mark Barnes (sporting heart-shaped shades and generally looking like Jesse Hughes and Bon Scott’s lovechild) came into AAA Backstage HQ and hung out with me for a bit before drinking the Valley dry of any free drink in sight- My head still hurts.


We Interview Damien Cowell of The DC3


"People don’t really want to pay attention, they want a quick glimpse, ‘work me out’, move on. ‘Cool’ is exactly what it’s been about, always has. Not ‘tall poppy syndrome’, or ‘slagging off the music industry’ or ‘trying to be outrageous’ or whatever else me, or they-who-shall-not-be-named have always been accused of."


We Interview Rin McArdle

Rin McArdle

Rin McArdle has made a name for herself as one of Adelaide's most exciting up and coming singer/songwriters. It comes as no surprise that after joinging forces with The Reckless, Rin and her exciting band have been successfully catapulted into the Adelaide music scene, already playing bot support and headlining shows in many of Australia's well known venues.

AAA's Paul McBride got to catch up with Rin and chat before she heads up to Brisbane to perform with Jack Carty and Thelma Plum on September 8th @ The End.
