Tell us about your new single/ album/ tour?
‘Dream Catcher’s Life’ is inspired by challenging the norm and taking a chance on yourself with your dreams. It explains the personal journey we as The Hiding have been on throughout our existence, all the highs and lows, as well as the ‘emotional rollercoasters’ we all face in our day to day lives and not settling for second best.
What’s your favourite work at this point in time?
Currently we’re all big fans of different bands and acts at the moment, but if we had to narrow it down to a few it would be Harts, Midnight Pool Party, Castlecomer & The Naked and Famous.
How would you describe your sound in food form and why?
We’d probably compare our music to say Pizza, because there’s many elements and influences in our music that makes our sound what it is!
Tell us a quick, on the road or studio, anecdote.
One little story we love was when we were recording with producer Jimi Maroudis (Kimbra), and we had little pranks on each other throughout the time we spent with him in the studio where we’d hide little shock toys under items like your phone or wallet that when you lifted the item, it would achieve a loud sound and scare you instantly!
What, or who, inspires you?
Anything inspires us! Often our lyrics relate to real life experiences that we have gone through in our lives, but things such as stories we come across, scenery that we’ve been exposed to and relationships within our lives often have a major impact in our writing. Musically we all have different influences within the band, as we are all fans of different genres so we try to incorporate them to mold our own individual sound.
Which song do you wish you wrote?
Young – Vallis Alps.
The simplicity of the track is what gives us massive envy that we didn’t write this one, as it is arranged brilliantly and doesn’t overcomplicate itself.
What’s next for you?
We have the next single ready to go, as well as another collaboration with a friend of the band soon to be released as well. We’re very keen to get back on stage and visit some places within Australia that we haven’t been to in a while. The aim is to have an EP out late this year too, so we’re hard at work at getting that done!
What’s your scene?
It’s hard to say we have one scene. We expose ourselves to quite a few different ones in our daily lives (whether that’s through our music or jobs or social lives), and we find that helps shape us as musicians so we can see different perspectives of ideas and scenarios that we come across.
