Interview: OKBADLANDS

OKBADLANDS - Tiny Measures

Brisbane-based OKBADLANDS (aka Kate Gurren and Sally Latter) have released their highly anticipated debut EP, ‘Tiny Measures’. It’s a body of work that explores the duo’s thoughts and feelings at the time of writing the EP, as well as a showcase of their instrumental development.

We had a chat with the girls…

Describe your sound in three words.
It goes alright.

You’ve spent a year writing, experimenting and re-inventing your sound. How has your home city of Brisbane helped you with your creativity?
There’s a really good music community in Brisbane. Writing with our Brisbane friends only helps you grow as a musician so we love it.

What was it like working with Golden Vessel and GXNXVS on your debut EP, ‘Tiny Measures’?
Golden Vessel is like our little brother. We loved working with him! He is the King of Brisbane beats. Can’t count the number of days we spent chilling in his studio hanging out and workshopping tracks. GXNXVS is a cool fella too. That writing processes was more sending back of forth of ideas, but it was cool working with such talent.

The EP artwork is really cool. Tell us about it.
A little something something we stumble across by Carla Uriarte. She’s got a lot of cool stuff it’s worth checking out. The part was kind of love at first sight. We think the aesthetic really matches the EP’s sound!

We love new music at Indietronica. What new music are you listening to?
Love me some of Lecrea‘s new album.

Australian producer, Golden Vessel (aka Max Byrne) returns with a new track called ‘Wave’, which features the gorgeous female harmonies of Brisbane duo, OKBADLANDS.

Like many of Golden Vessel’s tracks, ‘Wave’ started out as a simple beat he’d created on his laptop. He then added a piano melody throughout before asking Joe Thiang (of MTNS) to lay some drums over the outro of the song. Then it came to working on the vocals & lyrics, and the first people that came to mind were Sally and Kate from OKBADLANDS.

“I’d been working with Sally and Kate over the last few months producing tracks for their debut ep. I really loved working with them, and they are both immensely talented, so I decided to see whether they wanted to collaborate on this track. After a quick creative discussion over some burgers, I got stuck into finishing up the instrumental and OKB had the vocals finished within the week”

Golden Vessel will be releasing his debut ‘Before Sleep’ EP next week, but you can order ‘Wave’ on iTunes now.

Golden Vessel – Do You Think About Me? (Ft MTNS)

Golden Vessel

Golden Vessel is Australian producer, Max Byrne.

Max became a fan of MTNS in 2013 after coming across their single, ‘Lost Track of Time’, and was excited when Tom Eggert reached out to him two years later asking if he wanted to work with him on a song.

Following a get together in Tom’s wooden shack off his family’s property, the result is ‘Do You Think About Me?’; a pulsating, electronic, and synth-focused track with comforting vocals.

“This was an interesting song to work on because the track revolves around a synth hook, which at the time was a whole new process for me. This song is a lot of fun to perform as well, mostly because I get to play the synth hook on my homemade midi-controller” – Golden Vessel

“This song is about two people who are scared to say “I love you” – Tom Eggert

‘Do You Think About Me?’ is available now from iTunes and on Spotify, and for a limited time you get a free download via Golden Vessel‘s Soundcloud.
