Q&A: The Sweets


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

We’re The Sweets, made up of Will on bass, Liam playing lead guitar, Pato the singer/guitarist and Ash on drums.


What do you think people will say you sound like?

We occasionally have people say that we sound similar to The Strokes.


What do you love about making music?

We love that you can write a song to express your thoughts at the time and have the ability to change the mood of someone listening to it. There’s no greater feeling than to play your own songs and see people enjoy it.


What do you hate about the music industry?

The music that’s churned out by big record labels, purely to make money.


If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be and why?

We’d go hang out with Mozart, blow his mind with an electric guitar, and inspire him to write the first ‘rock opera’ about the indie rockers from the future.


What can a punter expect from your live show?

We pride ourselves on delivering a tight performance with a lot of energy. We try to get the crowd to feel involved in the show. Also, ladies can expect to fall in love with our bass player, and to question how we fit into our skinny jeans.

When are you playing live next and with who?

We’re playing at Noise Bar on Saturday June 9, teaming up with new friends Papa Maul and old friends Euthymia. It’s an exciting combination as each band plays a slightly different variation of the rock genre.


What’ve you got to sell CD-wise?

We’ll be releasing our debut EP very soon, so keep an eye out.
