New Music: The Hiding ‘Karma My Life’

Melbourne indie electro-pop act The Hiding have today announced their new single, Karma My Life alongside an artistic, emotive video clip and several show dates kicking off in Bendigo at Rifle Brigade Hotel on April 29, moving through to Mynt Lounge (Werribee) on May 6 and finishing up at Revolver (Melb) on May 21.

The band’s folk inspired percussive guitar sound takes influence from when the band were absorbing the many acoustic performances in Central Park whilst living in New York.  With a memorable hook and a happy, roadtripping vibe, the single touts a supremely positive message, a recurring theme that flows through the band’s songwriting.  “Life can throw so many speed bumps and The Hiding has experienced its fair share of these,” explains lyricist and guitarist, Anthony Salce.  “It can be deflating and soul damaging, however, these are life lessons we all experience and Karma my life is about accepting these journeys, appreciating the turning point and celebrating the ‘positive experience’ that changed your life.” Continue reading New Music: The Hiding ‘Karma My Life’

Special Interview: The Hiding

The Hiding speaks exclusively with Anthony Salce from Melbourne group The Hiding.

Tell us how it all started. What had you first interested in music? Johnny be good (back to the future one) I even have a red guitar I play live. That’s what made me want to start performing as a front man with a guitar in a band. What makes me continue? I love the business side of the industry but I love the friendship that comes from touring and rehearsing with your best mates. Not all memories are good, we have had some tough times, but the good that came from it is the memory of the support we all had for one another. Don’t get me wrong we are also known to kick each other while one is down (in the most humble humorous way), you never want to drop your guard especially if Ryan and Anthony are nearby, the love a practical joke. What keeps us going or interested? I love making memories through music that no 9-5 job can generate. Continue reading Special Interview: The Hiding
