Q&A: Dark Fair

Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?



What’ve you got to sell CD-wise?

Ramona: Our EP Penny Universe. We produced this with Dave McLuney, Stuart Sikes and Magoo. Was a year in production but we got there and are really happy with the outcome. Our EP is available on iTunes and you can buy a hardcopy at our shows, and online direct from us!


When’s the gig and with who?

Ramona: We've got multiple shows actually through November. We kick off with supporting The Demon Parade on Friday November 2 at Ding Dong Lounge; then we will be at Yah Yah's on Friday November 16 supporting The Staffords; and finally supporting White Summer at Cherry Bar on Friday November 30. 


What inspires or has influenced your music the most? 

Ellie: Babes, breakups and breakdowns.


 Why should everyone come and see your band?

Ellie: Because girl bands rule. Everyone knows that.


What's your favourite song, and why?

Ramona: Running Up That Hill – Kate Bush. Her vocal range, the drama. So unique. No one is like her!

Ellie: Evil – Interpol. That voice. That bass line. It gets me every time. 


 If you could go on tour with any musician or band, who would it be? Ramona:  The Dandy Warhols.

Ellie: Hole (with Tommy Lee as drum tech and Ruby Rose as my groupie).


How long have you been gigging and writing?

Ramona: Since my mum read my diary back in ninth grade! That's when I became cryptic! 

Ellie: Officially this year after Ramona convinced me to move here from Sydney. Best thing I ever did.


Tell us about the last song you wrote.

Ramona: Ain't No Stranger To Monotony. It's about wanting to take a new route far away from monotony and the mundane. Escaping routine. I love it. It's a lot of fun to play. A bit crazy!
