I love Passerine, think those cats are awesome. Why do you think I interviewed in the first episode of The Parx-e Show, love them to bits. This is a song by Dolo Jones which features Phoebe from Passerine and I love it. Just makes you want to boogie and get down in the club. Seriously just crank this loud and get down.
Just got sent this and I like it a lot that why I’m sharing it
This is cool can’t wait to hear more about
I only have one more interview to go until I reach 600 interviews. I have some body special lined up for the Interview, so until that is locked in and done. Interviews will be on Hiatus just briefly, then I’ll be back to cranking out interviews. I just want some body special to be the 600 interview and this person is it.
Thanks everybody for all their years of support on my little website that I have been doing for love, it really is much appreciated
SLEEPY DREAMERS ANNOUNCE FIFTH BIRTHDAY SHOW
Talented artist doing things. Liked what I heard so this what he had to say
Lyrically, it’s basically about a close relationship ending, very cliche! Musically, I was going for a bit of a Crosses meets Thrice vibe.
2. What inspires you when writing music?
Other artists music has always been my biggest inspiration. Whenever I hear something that blows me away it always gets me into a creative head space. I want to make something that gets people feeling the same way I do when I listen to good music.
3. What buzz do you get from playing live?
Playing live is always pretty fun. A good, natural high.
4. Do you have any thing you do before you play live?
Not really no. Maybe have a sneaky stress attack that everything is going to run smoothly then have a few shots.
5. Is an album in the works?
Yes, I finished work on my first album last year so hopefully it will see the light of day soon!
6. What can people expect from your show?
This run of shows will actually be the first time I’ve played live with this project so I’m not too sure what to expect myself. A good mix between ambient electronic and alternative rock is a definite though.
8. If you could collaborate with any one who would it be?
Thom Yorke, hands down.
9. If you could have anybody in a video clip who would it be?
Daniel Day-Lewis, another hands down!
10. What does the rest of 2015 have in store for you?
Love Like Hate

- What inspired the new ep unnoticed?
We had originally wanted to record an album when we went in the studio for the Rabbit Hole EP though due to the cost of recording we decided to do two EP’s instead, so many of the songs were already written. The two EP’s although different in the way that we used more electronic programming on the second are essentially a collective of songs from the same time.
- How were things different from earlier releases in terms of the recording process?
Previously recording Rabbit Hole we went in with a live drummer for a majority of the tracks, though with Unnoticed because of the cost of session artists we went in and explored electronic sounds and beats. This ended up allowing us to develop and explore a new element to our sound. As independent artists often the cost of recording and touring cannot be sustained with having session musicians, so it was great for us to explore sounds that could bridge the piano and the electric guitar.
- Was there a change in prep before recording the latest release?
Heather did a short crash course in Ableton and began using the program to create beats/layers which gave us the basics and some ideas to take into recording with Lachlan (Mitchell).
- How does it feel to be signed to Rough Trade Publishing?
It is surreal as it wasn’t something that we had sought out, to be personally approached by Rough Trade Publishing as a small relatively unknown independent band in Brisbane by the UK independent giant was mind blowing.
- What can people expect from the tour?
For the Australian leg of our tour we will be joined by Stephen Birt on drums, he toured previously with us on our Rabbit Hole Tour and he will be collaborating with the electronic undertones on some of the tracks. Our shows are essentially us doing our thing, playing our instruments; the drama is in the sound of our music.
- Do you have any plans to go overseas and have a crack it?
We toured Berlin, Paris and England last year headlining the London Vegan Beer Festival and we have been invited to return to the UK in July to tour on the UK Vegan Summer Roadshow. We are very excited to be playing ten shows in nine cities.
- What is next for the band?
After the English Summer tour (Australia and the UK), we will be returning to release another track off the Unnoticed EP before heading into the studio to start recording a full length album.
Episode 3 of The Parx-e Show is up with interviews with Singer Songwriter Alexa Borden and Boxing Manager & Screenwriter Mike Altamura
Great song and video clip by Doctin. I’ve known her for a while and it’s good to see her with a new song and clip which this one is a cracker.
