Bright Yellow - MusicNSW

Bright Yellow

1. What was the first band you saw live?
It was at a youth thing Like Frenzal Rhomb or something.

2. What’d you learn from them?
That music can be played really, really loud and that in a band you can basically say whatever you want and get away with it. But the first live
band you see as a kid isnt always the one thats going to set you up with any profound learning. When your that age its all about speed and volume and
getting wild.

3. Got any pre-gig rituals?
No, without being funny because what i should say is “yeah we all huddle and recite the alphabet backwards” but we don’t. Were more focused on making
sure we got the right venue and that Tobys been to the toilet before going on.

4. What do you think the most important issue effecting artists in NSW is today?
Not sure, its pretty free at the moment. Maybe an issue is that theres so many artists that want to make it real bad but simply arent good enough at
writing or playing music to ever get anywhere with it. I think a lot of musicians weve been around want the whole rock star thing first without
putting in the work, so I guess theres a work ethic issue.

5. If you weren’t a musician what do you reckon you’d be doing?
Going to Uni and getting more of an education probably, but really I couldnt see myself as anything other than a musician right now so it
doesnt really factor in. Im sure Toby would be making his films, you should see his stuff its wild.
