Interview with DZ Deathrays

Bundaberg is the 9th largest city in Queensland with a population just shy of 100,000 people. What was it like growing up in Bundaberg and performing at friends’ house parties? And what are your thoughts on Queensland Diesel?

Why did you move to Brisbane?

You covered The B-52s’ song ‘Love Shack’ last year with The Gooch Palms. You’ve also just released a somewhat collaborative effort with Briggs, Jesswar and Trials. Does this mean more collaborative efforts are on the horizon for the group?

As an avid ‘Wiggles’ fan myself, I had the pleasure of running into the Blue Wiggle, Anthony. Was this a somewhat surreal experience for you having grown up with The Wiggles? What’s it like collaborating with a Wiggle?

Did he actually help out at all with Like People’? Or was that just an idea for the music video?

Given the popularity of bands such as Royal Blood, Polish Club and Hockey Dad along with the influential Death From Above 1979, in your opinion, are two member bands going to be something we’ll be seeing more of in the future? Are there inherent difficulties with this kind of set-up that makes it unattractive for most start-up bands?

Velociraptor has quite a different sound to DZ Deathrays. Do you have different influences? And do you have to be in a different mindset when you switch bands?
