Two Minutes With Hawkmoth

Monday, May 11th, 2015

Before they support Boris at the first of two Sydney shows, we spend a couple of minutes with Hawkmoth and find out what’s new.

Describe your music in five words or less.
Molten, cataclysmic, meta-galactic, alchemistic sludge.

What’s going on in the world of Hawkmoth?
We’re busy writing our new album.

What motivates you to make music?
Hearing and seeing music done uniquely and done well

What have been the high and low points of your musical experiences so far?
Low point would be the extensive search for a new drummer that’s fit for the job.

High point would be finding a drummer that kills the job.

What music are you listening to at the moment?
Sumac — The Deal
Swans — To Be Kind
Mono — Rays of Darkness

If you were stranded on a desert island, which member of the band would get eaten first?
Brendan, purely because of the quantity of flesh.

You’re putting together your perfect gig featuring Australian artists. Who would you get to play and where? Feel free to include acts/DJs/bands/venues that no longer exist.
Buffalo, Dirty Three, Hard-Ons, The Birthday Party, Snowman, Laughing Clowns, Alchemist and King Salmon all playing in a lava cave.

Hawkmoth join Dumbsaint in support of Japanese noise legends Boris at the Newtown Social in Sydney on Thursday, May 28. Tickets are on sale now from, Oztix and the venue.
