Live Review: Deep Sea Arcade + Sons Of The East - Newtown Hotel, Sydney (07.06.14)

Watching a band play in the Newtown Hotel is kind of like being in a fishbowl. The band backs onto large windows that open onto King Street, so while the band rips into their set you watch as people stroll behind, eating ice creams. Occasionally a busload of people drives slowly past. It makes it all a little surreal.

Festival Review: Lost Picnic - Centennial Park, Sydney (23.03.14)

A small-scale boutique festival in the most perfect of Sydney weather; it doesn't get any better for local music lovers. Unless maybe you throw in gourmet food as well! Lost Picnic was a slice of sun-kissed heaven for both foodies and musos alike, bringing two of Sydney's finest restaurants into the fold to make for one of the most pleasant festival atmospheres Sydney has seen.

the AU interview: Jack Rollins of Sons of the East (Sydney) talks about the new Lost Picnic boutique festival.

Sydney's Sons of the East are a new band who are definitely ones to watch in 2014, with their beautiful and energetic indie folk music. I caught up with Jack, the lead singer and multi-instrumentalist, to chat about their 2013, songwriting and the freshly announced festival Lost Picnic.

the AU interview: Nic Johnston of Sons of the East (Sydney)

As a live band, they’re energetic, charismatic and seem pretty stoked to be up on stage playing their dynamic blend of instruments – including keys, banjo, guitar and vocals. I was lucky enough to catch one of their shows at the Beach Road Hotel in Bondi two weeks ago to witness Sons of the East play a bunch of new songs to a crowd of adoring fans of the indie-folk trio, ironically hailing from Sydney’s North. They’re the kind of band that has you up on your feet, dancing and hollering and singing along to every word you know.
