Special Interview: Sweet Crisis

theaussieword.com catches up with Sweet Crisis…
What motivates or influences you in your quest to make great music?
Great music motivates us I guess! We listen to music all the time, and that is the biggest inspiration to make music. Over influences, stuff like Led Zep, Leonard Skynyrd, Free, and modern bands like Royal blood and Rival Sons, all are really inspiring musically.
What are your biggest goals you hope to accomplish as an artist?
To have a career, and to be able to play music all the time really! That’s the goal!

What can we expect from you in the coming months? Any plans to tour?
Yes, gigs and more music to be released. 

Tell us a bit about your latest album and how would you best describe your music?
We are rock and roll band, and the music is live with lots of energy and soul!
Success, what is the secret to it?
I’ll let you know when I find out!

What has been your biggest career highlight?
We’ve only be ‘sweet crisis’ since January, so the highlight right now is the start of this really!
Which stars of the music industry do you find inspiring?
On a personal level, people like Dave Groll and Chris Martin and their bands. I think because of the way they conduct themselves, professionally and musically really. On a musical level, more of the old school bands from the 70s like, Free and Led Zep, not just on a musical level, but because of what they have achieved.
Any new projects in the pipeline?
First album being recorded at the moment, and a live gig recording EP to be released soon.
The music industry is huge, where do you see yourself a few years from now?
Hopefully still playing good music, rocking out and still having as much fun as we are having now.

Name a few of your favourite Aussie artists.
Jet, Wolfmother, listen to them all the time!
The shape of the music industry has changed significantly over the years, including the use of social media, how do you feel about the industry as a whole and what does it mean to you in getting your records out into the public eye?
Yeah, the music industry has changed. But for a band like us we try not to think about the change and concentrate more on the now, and how to navigate through all the industry shit! Over getting music over to the public, I guess it’s never been easier to do. But we are true believers that if you have the right music at the right time and people like it, that’s all you really need.
Thanks for the interview! What final message do you have for us today? 
Have a good one, and our first single fight about nothing, is out this week on Friday the 31st… Go have a download on iTunes and check it out!
