So then, what’s the band name and what do you ‘do’ in the band?
Noceans (pronounced ‘notions’), we both play synth and Danielle plays guitar. We’ve recently recruited Rupert who’s playing guitar on our later tracks.
What do you think people will say you sound like?
We seem to get the Beach House reference a lot. Excessive reverb, I don’t think there’s a track without it. It’s hard to describe what we think we sound like, but we take a lot of inspiration from Noah Lennox, Julee Cruise, Cocteau Twins and Health.
What do you love about making music?
What do you hate about the music industry?
That so much of it revolves around the Internet, although we do release most of our stuff digitally. It’s too convenient.
If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be and why?
Anton Newcombe, although I don’t know if we’d show him any of our music, I just wanted to voice our idolatry for Anton.
What can a punter expect from your live show?
Absolutely no idea, our first gig in Melbourne is at Noise Bar on Saturday. We’ve pulled out of every gig we’ve been offered in the last year but there’s no way we’ll be missing out on this one.
When are you playing live next and with who?
We’re playing at the All-Ways Electric party at Noise Bar on Saturday June 30 with Super Magic Hats and Readable Graffiti! Doors are at 9pm.
What’ve you got to sell CD-wise?
Everything we release is free to download off of our Bandcamp, there’s an 11-track demo CD and two EP’s (Sunject, Iridescence). We’ll also have copies available at Noise Bar.
