Sans are a Melbourne band doing good things. With some radio play on Triple J, this band is going places. I ask Amanda from the band a bunch of questions, this is what she had to say about it all.

1. Are you happy how things have gone for the band so far?

We’re always striving for greater heights and yes, we’re very happy so far. We love playing together and people seem to be responding well and that’s all we can ask for!

2. What inspires the band when writing music?

Both Stacey and myself tend to write separately, then bring it to the band to add the magic. Generally, our songs are inspired by personal experience or the things we see around us.

3. What is your latest song about?

It’s one of our first happy songs to tell you the truth, lyrically we are usually a little more pensive or upset about something! Long story short, the latest song Bluebird is about the rush you get at the start of a new relationship or when you first have feelings for someone. When you come to the realization that you want to be with someone, and you’re trying to find the ways to tell them…

4. How does it feel to have triple j radio play after uploading a song a week ago?

Crazy! We’re all over the moon, the response so far to Bluebird has been pretty intense and we are stoked – because we love the track too!

5. Have you had response from that?

Yeah, we’ve had a few reviews come through and a few contacts from some people that want to work with us (venues/artists etc). Lots of people downloading and listening to the track online too which is awesome.

6. What has been your favorite show to date?

That’s a tough question – because we’re about to launch our EP in April and I think that will be the best show so far! Our first show we played as SANS last year was pretty amazing.

7. How does social media help you as a band?

Facebook tends to be everything. Along with Twitter and Instagram. It’s a little hard to reach people without them, and it’s even hard to reach people with them sometimes! It gives us an opportunity to let people know what we are up to, while letting them decide whether they’d like to attend a show or have a listen to something. Just as important is our ability to get in touch with other bands, venues, industry types etc. Without social media that would be far more difficult.

8. How are things different from your previous band?

We’ve all come from different backgrounds and a few of us still play in other bands – and we love them all. This band is definitely the most upbeat or poppy band we’ve all been in so it’s great to write party tunes and just let loose. At the end of the day the goals never change, to stay passionate about our music, keep writing and continue to enjoy playing with each other.

9. If you could have any body in a video clip who would it be?

Ooh – I’m not sure! It’s always fun to have friends in your clips but on the other hand, clips without any people in them are cool too!

10. What’s your favorite venue to play at?

Lately we’ve been loving the Grace Darling Hotel in Collingwood…

11. What does 2014 have in store for the band?

A new EP release in April, a bunch of shows to back it up and hopefully a national tour!
