60 Seconds With… THNKR


So then, what’s the band name and what do you ‘do’ in the band?

The band is called THNKR. We are Sean and Jono, and we play vocals/guitar/keys and bass/vocals respectively.

Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?
Maybe, a black Paul Simon mixed with some LCD Soundsystem.

What do you love about making music?
It’s a far more effective and subtle way of communication than talking.

What do you hate about the music industry?
That Tom Waits hasn’t come to Australia in so long.

If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be and why?
We wouldn’t fit in the DeLorian.

If you could assassinate one person or band from popular music, who would it and why?
Everyone has a place in the grand spectrum of sound.

What can a punter expect from your live show?
Surprises, a lot of instruments, energy, and some goosebumps.

What’ve you got to sell CD-wise?
Nothing yet, we’ll have a release of some description available soon…

When’s the gig and with who?
It’s our final Residency at the Toff in Town, on Monday March 19, with The Neighbourhood Youth and Midsummer Tribe.

Anything else to add?
These Hands Never Killed Rock ‘n’ roll.
