Who? Oliver Tank City you call home? Sydney Tea or coffee? Tea Best thing about what you do… Inspiring people Favourite cafe anywhere? The Laundromat (Iceland) Dream collaboration? Devin the dude, James Blake, Lil Wayne and Snoop Dogg all on one track Can you tell a lot about a person by their bedclothes? Of course What about you? I usually cruise around locally in my PJs, its comfortable and they aren’t too inappropriate What inspires you? Music, I literally spend all day/night listening to or making music is unbelievably rewarding and inspiring If not playing a gig where can we find you? I’m usually out Friday and Saturday Nights in the city maybe try the Abercrombie, otherwise I’ll be chillin’ with friends I’m buying drinks, what’s your poison? Alize (Bleu) with Lemonade Last movie you saw? Drive Any good? Yeah loved it, awesome soundtrack and a really interesting story Best record right now? I’m really enjoying the new Drake Album “Take Care” it’s well worth checking out One song to guarantee a private car sing-along? Steal my Sunshine – Len Favourite Beatle? Ringo, I dunno why everyone dislikes him, he seems like a pretty good bloke to me. Just think of all the fan mail he’s replied to! Prince or MJ? MJ One band – old or new – you’d murder to play for? Mount Kimbie Favourite, quirky possession? Rubiks Cube, challenges me, but I always get the better of it Scrunch or fold? Fold Guilty pleasure of late? Buying coke bottles with hilarious names on them There’s a mini, five-band festival at yours, who’s playing? Rockets, Flume, Guerre, True North and Jonti Tell us one odd thing we don’t know? In high school I was in a really bad heavy rock band Lollies or chocolate? Chocolate for sure You and the gf are breaking up, which one record do you fight for? Lil Wayne – Tha Carter III What’s on your rider? Nothing unsual, just some beers Most diva-like demand recently? Alize (Bleu) with lemonade when you asked me what I wanted to drink before Most embarrassing stage moment? I haven’t really had one yet, ask me in a few months The world’s ending, what do you do? Listen to music, hang with my friends and family and just take it all in Favourite shower croon? Chilled Coughphee by Currency feat. Devin the Dude, it’s a great summer jam Who did you want to be when you grew up? I think i wanted to be a train driver because I really loved trains when I was a kid Last thing you stole? Haha, I don’t remember. I’m not really much of a thief Cartoon character? Dexter (of dexters lab fame) Best Christmas present ever received as a child? My old dog Wombo. He was a combined Christmas and Birthday present. Awesome dog, awesome times Favourite place in the world that’s not home? Maybe Switzerland, my mum is from there. Its a really beautiful place and I always have an amazing time when I’m there Song most likely to get you onto the dance floor? Drop it like its hot Life changing record? Mount Kimbie, ‘Maybes’ as well as ‘Sketch on Glass’ and ‘Crooks and Lovers’ is solid as well Love or lust? A bit of both for good measure Favourite composition of your own of all time? Last Night I Heard Everything in Slow Motion and Up All Night are some of my favourite tracks, but I love all my music there is something special about every track for me One apprehension about your album? If it was an album then it could have been a bit longer… Otherwise I’m not really sure, I put a lot of time and effort into my EP and I’m honestly really happy with how it sounds The best thing about being you right now? I wake up in the morning, listen to music and make music. I hang out with my friends at night, listen to more music, drink and party. Life is good What are you doing after answering these questions? Going to have a few beers to celebrate the release Famous last words? Thanks for all the love.
