1. What Do You Look For in a Band?

Dirty, sweaty, turbo charged, fuel injected rock’n’roll! We like to play the above… We like a fan that likes the above…and especially a fan who owns a couch!

 

2. Keeping Busy

We have been busy over the past few months… In March we headed over to the USA to showcase at SXSW, which was an absolute blast. We were over there...

1. What Do You Look For in a Band?

A steady income, loves yoga, must have rich parents, votes Liberal, looks and sounds like Coldplay, resides on the North Shore, is male, is adored by Kyle Sandilands. We really think that Skrillex and deadmau5 are pushing the boundaries of electronic music. Nu-metal never died. Brostep is where it’s at. Mumford & Sons have been really...

1. What Do You Look For in a Band?

Depth is something that is really important. It's important to find a band that you can have an evolving relationship with. There are so many bands out there that will give you one song, then leave you feeling high and dry. That might be okay for a wild night out, but we find longer relationships are more rewarding. There are exquisite...

1. Growing Up

We were all raised in various far-flung northern NSW coastal towns. Personally, my mother loved Sabbath and Zeppelin, while her boyfriend at the time favoured the Christian radio station that was broadcast from a caravan. That relationship never had a chance.

 

2. Inspirations

Although we’re a surf band, our inspiration is about as un-coastal...

1. Growing Up

I grew up in Germany and my parents loved to listen to 60s pop records like The Searchers, The Hollies, The Kinks. My dad had the complete Beatles vinyl box set. We listened to those records a lot; I learnt the words phonetically before I knew how to speak English.

 

2. Inspirations

There are certain songs that have really affected me, either...

1. What We’re Looking For in Music

Our music is heavily influenced by soul music and older R&B tracks. As a band, we get the majority of our writing and rehearsing done at night. The ideal fan is someone who wants to make memories and have experiences to our music.

 

2. What We’re Doing With Ourselves

We’ve been writing pretty steadily for the past year...

1. Growing Up 

Prolifik: Our parents had a pretty killer music selection; I still rake through mum's vinyl collection.

Thraxxy: Mum got me into Creedence Clearwater Revival and I still remember Dad showing us our first Daft Punk film clip. LL Cool J was pretty much on repeat when ever we drove with our old man. Still...I ended up as the chubby weirdo kid in the Manson...

1. Growing Up

Growing up music was always around us, there were always instruments and records around the house. We all got the opportunity to start performing at local venues in our teens due to having musical parents. This was a great opportunity and a big influence to help us all become musicians.

 

2. Inspirations

To list all our influences would be...

Latin jazz legend Chucho Valdes catches up with BRAG's Marissa Demetriou ahead of his gig with the Afro-Cuban Messengers at Sydney Opera House.

 

Tell us a little about the title of your new album Border-Free…

It’s meant literally – it suggests there are no borders in the music. In a world of limitless musical possibilities, the album goes beyond borders, freely exploring...

We hang with Caspa ahead of his Bass Mafia Garden Party gig to talk about the LA dubstep scene.

 

We hear you’ve been spending a lot of time in LA recently – how do you find that, being a Londoner?

It’s such a huge difference living in LA compared with London. I really like LA, it’s a great place to be and network if you’re in music or film. I enjoyed my time there and...
