Q&A: Yolke


Define your genre in five words or less:

Ambient, psychedelic grooves and beats.

When’s the gig and with who?

Were playing every Thursday in December at the Post Office Hotel in Coburg. Two sets a night, one improv set and another set of songs and new tracks. The last gig on the Thursday December 27 is with the legendary Blood Red Bird – world music at its greatest.

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?

“I saw some sick cosmic lounge tunes the other night. It was like that bar scene from Star Wars.”

If you could assassinate one person or band from popular music, who would it and why? 

Bono – the man’s got a god complex.

What’s the strangest place you’ve ever played a gig, or made a recording?

Croatian Sports Club in Newcastle. We were playing to an elderly crowd waiting for their free soup, they didn’t really dig the extra flavours.

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

Our upcoming long-player Syrup is due out on Fallopian Tunes at the beginning of the new year.

Tell us about the last song you wrote.

It’s called Rushh, sounds a bit like a day at a water park. Crazy slides, mad bubbles and an insatiable appetite for adrenaline and more wetness. It was inspired by a day at some Gold Coast water parks.
