The Ocean Party

What do you dislike about making music and what do you love about it?
There are heaps of things that can be frustrating or uncomfortable about making music and every day they can change. One day the sound of a guitar can be the last thing you want to hear, other days setting up to record can seem like an insurmountable task. The thing that I love about music the most is that there are so many facets to it and it never demands anything from you, you are as involved or as passive in it as you’d like to be, day-to-day.

What goes on in your head when you’re on stage?
Ideally, very little. It’s nice when it’s a way to wind down at the end of a day, especially when we’re touring. A lot of the time we’re probably thinking about ways to make each other laugh on stage.

What do you get most obsessive about when you’re making music?
Probably finishing whatever we’re making. Not so much in terms of smashing it out as quickly as possible, but in terms of keeping a clear line of sight towards an end. Otherwise you can quickly become a band who gets lost forever in an endlessly growing labyrinth of new problems you create for yourselves.

Who’s a local talent more people should know about?
Dominic93 and Classic.

What’s a quote that made you do something?
I saw a gig once in Collingwood where someone said “This one’s for Donald… Trump” then played “Rockin’ In The Free World”. That made me shake my head and lol.

What record do you think you’ve listened to the most times in your life?
As a band, collectively and individually we’ve all listened to Original
Pirate Material by The Streets way too many times in our lifetimes.
