Crazy Old Maurice

By Kian West

1.  How would you describe the music that you make?

We’re a trio with keys, double bass and drums, but we make a lot of noise for a small act! We borrow from a bunch of different genres - anything from moody pop to lounge, groove, jazz…industrial stalker folk is another one we’ve come up with J

 

2. What are you working on at the moment?

Getting our first album out by the end of 2014. After we lost everything in a house fire, Canberra producer Dax Liniere generously offered to mix and master it for free. We ended up recording with him too – it will be something special!

 

3. Where is your next event?

TBA

 

4. When is the next release?

We’re releasing our second single ‘Another Day’ in August. It’s a creepy song inspired by a post-apocalyptic French film about cannibalism…strange stuff, and the track sounds amazing.

 

5. Who is your biggest influence/s?

Authentic storytellers Clare Bowditch, Paul Kelly and Mark Knopfler, for the songwriting. New York groove trio Tortured Soul influence our dance tracks.

6. If you could play anywhere where would it be?

EXIT Music festival in Serbia. It’s an incredible festival staged in an old castle, and is notorious for excellent bands and a killer party vibe. Heaven!
