Hey, tell us a bit about yourself.
We’re based in Melbourne. We actually haven’t been playing together long as Sister Socrates, but most of us play in other bands together. Matt, Lachy and I play in Canary, which is a 5-piece band who have been around for a while now with two albums under our belt. Lachy and Justin play in a bunch of other great acts, including Mount Saint Leonard.
We basically got together for this project to flesh out some half-finished songs that I was writing. We rehearsed and got their basic form down in a couple of recording sessions, and then we built the songs from these recordings.
Where did the new single come from?
Less Myself is the second song we’ve released so far, which was really just the next song we focused on finishing. It’s a bit more traditional in form than some of our other stuff in that it follows a more standard song structure. I actually really like that about it, because I’m not particularly good at writing that way. Our other stuff is a bit more linear. This song’s about routines and the default commitments that come from them. It’s got a bit of a ho-hum attitude about it.
Is there more content in the pipeline?
Yes. We’re working on an album, I think, all going well.
What’s on the horizon for you?
Not sure at this stage. We’re playing our first show this week, so depending on how that goes, hopefully we’ll get into some more regular live shows. We’ll also be making more music when we find the time, which is always fun.
