PEATS RIDGE FESTIVAL

the AU interview at Peats Ridge Festival: The Falls (Sydney)

Sydney Pop-Folk duo The Falls are a band with a great story and a great sound, both of which intertwine to make everything they do seem inviting and familiar, yet new at the dame time. Their bio puts their story perfectly, simply stating. “They met, they fell in love, they wrote songs. They fought, they made up, they broke up, they made songs”.

the AU interview at Peats Ridge Festival: The Preatures (Sydney)

The Preatures had a big 2012, and an even bigger end to it, with the release of their EP “Shaking Hands”, a big tour across the country and their tunes getting some serious play on Triple J, the band (Gideon Bensen, Isabella Manfredi and Thomas Champion) join us in a happy mood, and joke and join each other so much through the interview that it’s impossible to differentiate their answers.

the AU interview at Peats Ridge Festival: Nick McKenzie and Nick Weaver of Deep Sea Arcade (Sydney)

Peats Ridge pros, the two Nicks of Deep Sea Arcade swing back in the hammock playfully joking away as Jo snaps photos and they play with the sand and toy shovel and bucket.

the AU interview at Peats Ridge Festival: Matt McHugh (Sydney)

Having done all he felt he could with The Beautiful girls, Mat McHugh is back with a new formation, though it’s what he refers to as the closest “official version of the beautiful girls”, in Mat McHugh & the Seperatista Soundsystem.

the AU interview at Peats Ridge Festival: Helen Croome of Gossling (Victoria)

Gosling on stage at Peats Ridge

2012 was a very big year for Gossling (Helen Croome), her own song “Wild Love” was the 18th most played track on Triple J, she recorded two songs with 360, including the massive hit “girls like you” and Elmo sang her song on Triple J, something she called one of her “highlights” of 2012.

the AU interview at Peats Ridge Festival: Blood Red Shoes (UK)

Blood Red Shoes hit Australian shores for the first time at the very end of 2012, and within a couple of hours they were deep in the valley and talking to the AU Review. With three albums under their belt now, the band have been kicking strong through the UK for nine years, though it is with their latest album that they have started to show their true song writing ability, instead of just jamming out their records as they had in the previous two rock heavier albums.

the AU interview at Peats Ridge Festival: Chapelier Fou (France)

I spot the festival’s only French artist Chapelier Fou (Louis Warynski) walking through the various twists and turns of the artist area after his show. Unable to help myself, I strike up a conversation and possibly a little flirtation in the hope of scoring the interview no one has, with the strange and sexy French artist.

Festival Review: Peats Ridge Festival, Day 3 - Glenworth Valley (31.12.12)

The last day of the festival starts hotter than any other and both the heat and the excitement of the night to come rip campers out of their tents from 7am onwards, regardless of what time they got in there.
