Hot off the trails of thrilling Splendour shows, Grouplove supported by Young The Giant held nothing back for their sold-out Sydney audience. It would be their last hoorah before heading back to the U.S. Lachlan Mitchell brings us these photos..
While he was in Newport Beach, California, I had a chat to Francois Comtois, drummer of Californian band Young The Giant, who will soon be on our shores for Splendour in the Grass, as well as a couple of dates with fellow Californians Grouplove. We chat about their debut self-titled record, Australia, their upcoming tour with Incubus and much more….
Hello Francois, how are things going!
Californian natives Young The Giant were the darlings of SXSW this year and contrary to the media hype surrounding the five-piece, their debut album sounds more like an exercise in corporate music marketing than it does a creative endeavour.
The main problem with this record is not its lack of appealing tunes, but the fact that the music has been polished to perfection and in the process of generating a bankable project, the production has stripped away any trace of personality, originality and heart - which are three things that distinguish good music from great music.
SPIN returned to SXSW for its annual SPIN@Stubb's party. Headliners on the main stage include The Vaccines, OMD, The Kills and TV On The Radio.
