Q&A Scene: Sketch & Tommy Shades of BOMBS AWAY!


Tell us about your new single/tour?

We’re absolutely stoked to be releasing Sneak Out! its been a labor of love and its so great to be touring it and seeing everyone already know the words!

What’s your favourite work at this point in time? 

We would have to say our latest one, we have been really working on bringing in more melodic vocals into our production, and doing them ourselves really makes it feel like a complete piece now.

How would you describe your sound in food form and why?

haha, definitely something fun and tasty like a mudcake with ice-cream.

Tell us a quick, on the road or studio, anecdote.

During the Creamfeilds festival tour we had Bombs Away dressing gowns that we traveled in, it was all going well until when we landed at one of the airports the federal police pulled us aside and gave us 5 seconds to get ride of them or we were coming with them, we explained the deets but they didn’t want to know.

What, or who, inspires you?

We have both been playing instruments for as long as we can remember, a lot of bands like zz top, the eagles, creedence and the guys who have the story telling ability in their music are hugely inspirational.

Which song do you wish you wrote?

Of all time? Bohemian Rhapsody for sure, right now? Chainsmokers Closer haha

What’s next for you?

We are about to board a plane for the States right now and then over to Korea and up to Ireland for some shows so next up is a whole lot of plane studio time haha

What’s your scene?

Good times with genuinely good people.
