Q&A: The Animators


Define your genre in five words or less:

Rock with a piano


What do you love about making music?

Everything! What’s not to love about doing something you dreamed of as a kid or wished for in every daydream in high school?! We love the process of making records and writing, but probably playing together live on stage is the biggest buzz. We are very much a ‘live’ band when we get going…

So, someone is walking past as you guys are playing, they then go get a beer and tell their friend about you… what do they say?

“Did they just cover Radiohead and The Pussy Cat Dolls in the same set?!”

When are you playing live/releasing your album/EP/single/etc?

We are launching our brand new film clip for our latest single We, Not the Giant at The Workers Club on Thursday January 24. We are currently head down, bum up in the studio working on our debut LP.

What advice would you give to bands that are new on the Melbourne music scene?

Be nice to your sound guy/girl.
