Jen interviews ‘Castlecomer’ on the ‘All the Noise’ East Coast Tour.

Castlecomer’s new EP ‘All the Noise’ is a 5 track marvel. Each track instantly grabbed my attention. ‘Judy’ is not the only track on this EP that is destined to be a hit. Pure genius!

Castlecomer have announced a brand new EP All of the Noise  an electric odyssey through modern alternative pop that will please fans of Bloc Party and Foals circa 2010. They are touring at the moment, see more details below. 

Jen had the chance to catch up with them after a few shows.

Hey, how is your tour going?

It has only just started, but it is going very well. This weekend we are playing in Canberra and then in Melbourne which we are very excited about because we love coffee and loose people.

Looking at how many of you are in the band do you have trouble fitting on any stages? If so are there any stories you can tell us about it?

With the stages we play we definitely struggle! It also doesn’t help having a certified giant in our band!!! Neely our keys player is quite the specimen 6’8″ and ready to date.

Good to know! You have had Ayla join you on the tour, how has that been working out? She is one talented artist!

We are pumped to have her as part of the tour! Having a great support like Ayla definitely makes the tour more enjoyable for us.

You recently released ‘Judy’, I love the harmonies in this song. Was this song written from a band members personal experience?

Forbidden love and catholic nuns. That’s all I’d like to say about that.

You have two video’s for ‘Judy’ one is pretty chilled and the other one is pretty funny! The last thing I expected was to see the band in ‘Judy’s mouth!

Yeah! As a band we like to be very hands on and involved in all parts of our music. When it came to coming up with a film clip for Judy we decided we would hand over the reigns to our mate Ben Sheen. He came up with the idea and created something pretty great!

Was there a particular reason that you did two versions of the song and two music videos?

We thought the song had a bit of stylistic range, so we were keen to offer a different approach to the song. We don’t do harmonies as much as we use to so it was nice to rip them out again.

How much fun was it to make the video with all the teeth cleaning? The video starts off very basic then bam! I love it.

 Yeah it was fun! Because Ben came up with the concept we didn’t really know what we were doing when we turned up to film. They covered us with shaving cream and told us to pretend we were in someone’s mouth while they hit us with a massive uvula. It was a unique experience for sure!

 

You have a few more shows left on your tour, can you tell us in 7 words what crowds can expect from your shows?

Promises Secrets Love Sadness Ecstasy Dancing Sweat (bonus words: bonus words)

Well done! After your tour what is next for Castlecomer? A rest over Christmas?

We have just finished 3 new songs in the studio. They’re bangers that people will hear early next year.

Sweet, will look forward to hearing them!
