60 Seconds With… Quiet Child




Quiet Child.


Define your genre in five words or less:

Vaguely progish.


Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?

Long and tedious.


Describe the best gig you have ever played.

Opeth support at Palace Theatre in Melbourne.


Tell us about the last song you wrote.

A tribute song to Christopher Hitchens called Oh, Christopher.


Where would you like to be in five years?

Our plan is to move to Europe and explore the Nordic countries.


Do you have a pre-gig ritual? If so, what is it?

Some of us squeeze out a Bristol type six.


Name an interview question you wish someone would ask you, and answer it.

What is your favourite computer game? Paul says Starcraft 2, and Peter says Skyrim. Brent and Ash’s opinions are uninteresting.


If your music was a chocolate bar, which one would it be, and why?

Jumbo Toblerone, because it’s long and segmented.


QUIET CHILD (ADEL) play The Central Club with Branch Arterial, One and Alex Anonymous this Friday March 23.
