Kettlespider

Describe your sound in one sentence? ‘70s-inspired prog-rock, infused with a whole range of modern influences.
 
What was your main inspiration for the album? The goal for Kettlespider was to capture a body of work that represented our development as a band over the five years we spent making it. Since our first release, Avadante in 2012, we’ve all grown as musicians, songwriters and producers. It's really nice to say that we created an album full of music that we want to listen to ourselves.
 
How is this album different from your previous releases? The main difference is the way we recorded this one. Kettlespider is the final culmination of a little project of ours called “Building a Spider”. We recorded and released a new song, or “leg” of the spider, every month for eight months. This concept is reflected in the album artwork too.
 
What do you love about making music? The mix of self-expression and teamwork. It’s about working together with a group of people to create something larger than yourself, while still contributing in your own unique way. 
 
What do you hope listeners will take away from the record? While we hope for the record to be enjoyed by a new audience, this record also serves as a massive thank you to our dedicated fans. There aren’t that many of them, but they’re spread from Melbourne to Rotterdam and beyond our mortal plane. It’s a thank you for all the kind words of encouragement that we've ever received. We hope that the long wait has been worthwhile.

Kettlespider’s self-titled album is out now via Bandcamp or in-store at Vinyl Solution, Greville Records and Polyester Records.
