HERMITUDE

the AU interview: Hermitude & The Preatures on their multiple ARIA nominations for 2015!

Two acts who are up for a cheeky few ARIA Awards apiece this year come straight outta NSW but from different ends of the spectrum; you've got The Preatures, the five piece who have been elevated to become one of the country's favourite live touring acts off the back of their debut album Blue Planet Eyes and then you have Hermitude, the Blue Mountains duo who've been storming festival stages around the world as well as sell-out headline shows with their slick and sophisticated electronic-driven tunes. Larry caught up with both at last week's ARIA nominations event in Sydney to see how everything's been going...

The AU Interview at Lollapalooza: Hermitude (Blue Mountains) Discuss Future Plans and Their Current Tour

Two hours before they were set to hit the stage at Lollapalooza, we sat down with El Gusto and Luke Dubs of Hermitude to discuss their current tour, releasing their number one album, Dark Night Sweet Light, and their plans for the future. The pair are confident about their upcoming performance. “[We’re] feeling pretty good,” says El Gusto. “Pretty psyched,” adds Luke Dubs. “We’re slightly jet-lagged but we’re [going to] pull out the usual miracles that we do before we go on stage.” They’ve just come from performing at Osheaga Festival in Montreal, and say that despite many delays along the way, they’ve had a successful tour so far. “It was awesome… we had an amazing crowd. Just really great vibes, people jumping around, having a good time.” After several delayed flights, and a ten hour drive from Detroit to Montreal, the pair are relieved that they made it to the show. “It was brutal,” Luke says.
