Q&A | “being together after a surf and jamming around when an idea comes to life” – Sons Of The East talk to TLMT


Australian indie-folk act Sons Of The East are coming to Dublin next month, play the Workman’s Club on Friday, May 17th as they tour their upcoming E.P. Burning Right Through. The band recently took the time to talk to TLMT about what they’re listening to now, their inspirations and future plans.

What’s the last record you bought?

The last record I bought was probably the latest Arctic Monkeys record ‘Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino’, incredible body of work.

What’s the last song you played on Spotify?

I think it was in the car this morning and it was Something by the Beatles. That song has recently jumped back onto my radar and I can’t stop. Nay I won’t stop.

What inspires your music?

A lot of the time songs can come from real life experiences that we like to write about. Or it could be just being together after a surf and jamming around when an idea comes to life and we spend the rest of the day/week/year putting it together.

Tell us about your new E.P. Burn Right Through, and how it was written/recorded?

Burn Right Through has been a really fun process, all of us working really hard on all the songs to get them to a level we are all Happy with. We are really proud of the music and hope that our fans are going to get behind every song on the record. The whole E.P. was recorded in our home studio, as with the last two records, and we wrote all the songs together which gives it a really special feel. We culled so many other ideas and songs to get to these 6, so they’re the cream of the crop and definitely our favorites.

What are your future plans?

Our future plans are to keep doing what we are doing, writing music, touring and having a damn good time whilst we are at it. As soon as we are back from this U.K. And Europe tour we will be back in the studio writing and recording. Getting ready to release more and more tunes.

Tickets to see Sons Of The East play the Workman’s Club in Dublin are priced at €20 and are on sale now via Doors are at 8 pm.
