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.
Sounds like: Golden Vessel, TENDER
