NEW MUSIC: Betty Who – ‘I Remember’

6zw3TbOVPop singer-songwriter BETTY WHO is ringing in the new year with another glimpse into her forthcoming album with the release of her single “I Remember” – available everywhere NOW via AWAL Recordings. A music video for “I Remember” is coming soon. The track was produced by Peter Thomas & Kyle Moorman and is featured on her third studio record Betty, out February 15th 2019. Betty is available for pre-order now HERE.

“‘I Remember’ is exactly the way I wanted to start my new year. It’s such a representation of the album and my obsession with making music that makes people feel good,” Betty says of the song. “The whole point of the song is about letting go of how hard life (and especially love) can be at times and remembering why you do it in the first place.  Love is never going to be perfect.  Sometimes it will be easy, most times it will be hard, but all the time it’s worth it because, when you’re with the right person, you are willing to work for it.”Continue reading

“I can’t think of a more fitting way to commemorate the first anniversary of Dolores’ passing and to celebrate her life than to announce to the world the release of her final album with the band.”Eileen O’Riordan, Dolores O’Riordan’s mother.

SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Spectoral

theaussieword.com catches up with Spectoral for a special online chat.

Give us an introduction. How did it all begin? What had you first interested in music?

As a kid I had organ lessons… and although I never really liked what I was learning to play on the thing, I loved being able to control deep basslines with the pedals. Looking back I think I treated it as my first synth. More often than not I just ended up playing around with the arpeggiator and all the flip-buttons, making these never ending auto-chord programmed songs, recording them onto cassette and making my family listen to them all in the car. It drove my sister crazy.Continue reading

Special Interview: Brook Chivell

theaussieword.com catches up with Brook Chivell.

Give us an introduction, how did it all begin? 
Hi Brian first let me start by thanking you so much for having me.
My mum tells me that as a toddler I used to stand up in my cot and sing little tunes. Not words but tunes. So I think that even before I knew that I loved music, I loved music. All through primary and high school  I was involved in music classes singing, playing keyboard and, every parents dreaded, recorder. Lol. When I was 17 a friend showed me the 3 chords to play ‘Wild Thing’ and the rest is history.

Special Interview: TALES

theaussieword.com catches up with Tush from Tales!

Give us an introduction. How did it all begin? What had you first interested in music? Hey guys, It’s Tush from, Tales, and we all live in little old Adelaide! Our band started off in 2015 with our old name ‘The Winter Gypsy’. We’ve been writing ever since! My first interest in music came from pure boredom. I was recovering from an injury, and my sister had literally stopped playing guitar (she was the musician in the family) to take up photography and graphic design. As her interests changed, she gave me her guitars, taught me how to play Wonderwall, and the rest is history.Continue reading

Special Interview: Motor Ace

theaussieword.com catches up with Matt Balfe from Motor Ace.

Give us an introduction. How did it all begin? What had you first interested in music? Like most GenX kids growing up in a country town, I got into rock music early on. Many hours were spent in front of countdown, producing and trading mixed tapes recorded directly from FM radio, and later taping rage on a Saturday night. By the start of high school, I had taken up guitar and decided that being in bands was going to be my thing. Early influences included The Clash, The Cure, and the Sex Pistols. Really anything that sounded like the opposite of ABC classic FM (top of the pops in my house growing up).
