RGM INTRODUCING – WE INTERVIEW AUSSIE BAND SNOWFISH

Hiya folks thanks for joining us in the virtual RGM lounge today, grab a brew and take a seat.

What made you decide that music is a thing for you?

Listening to masterpiece albums that changed our lives and wanting to recreate that ourselves.

Introduce us to the members and your musical history.

Jordan, 23 – played piano from a young age, picked up a guitar, and singing in high school

Sol, 22 – has played drums his entire life. Started jamming with Jordan in high school.

Kalan, 17 – multi-instrumentalist and producer. Joined the band at age 14, marking the beginning of Snowfish.

The music industry is the hardest industry in the world to progress in, How do you feel you are doing?

We’re doing well overall and are happy to have achieved the milestone of releasing an album. Being based in Australia holds us back to an extent, especially in our genre.

How have your songwriting skills developed over time?

We wrote some great songs in our younger years such as Ghost and Middle Name which have stood the test of time. There were also some we’d rather forget. These days we can more consistently write songs that aren’t cringe, but we still have to work on our craft hard to create the good stuff. We have big plans for our future work to keep improving our sound.

What’s your thought on Spotify’s monopoly on the music industry?

It’s a sign of the times

Do you sign up to any conspiracy theories?

It depends. Sometimes uncomfortable truths are labeled as conspiracy theories to influence the public. Sometimes conspiracy theories are just that, theories without substantial evidence.



Did you buy anything you don’t need during the pandemic?

I took an interest in growing my own food – that may come in handy later on though.

What was the worst experience on stage?

We have a pretty good one. We were playing in a beer garden at a sketchy dive bar in our hometown. There was a large metal beam that ran from the roof along the front of the stage. We were having to duck under it when we performed near the front of the stage because we’re tall. Kalan forgot it was there and cracked his head on it in the second last song. We kept playing for another 10 seconds before he put his bass down and walked offstage with blood streaming down his face. The show ended abruptly there and he sought first aid from a nurse that happened to be at the gig before being taken to the ER.

Tell us something about each member that you think people would be surprised about. 

Outside of music here’s what we enjoy spending our time on:

Jordan – playing with my Australian Cattle Dog and Australian Kelpie, campervan conversions, CrossFit, and learning how to cook different stuff with my girlfriend.

Kalan – bodybuilding, and eating. Lots of it.

Sol – Game development, art, and design.

What makes you stand out as a band?

There aren’t many bands with three brothers. Let alone solely three brothers.

I hear you have a new album, what can you tell us about it?

The Monster Upstairs is a collection of the best songs we have created in the early few years of the band. 

Talk me through the thought process of the new album.

The Monster Upstairs is about fighting with a force above you whether that be in the personal or political sense.

What was the recording process like?

We recorded 5 of the songs as singles spread apart over a period of 18 months. The rest were recorded earlier this year spread across a few sessions. The process is very easy as our producer, Jack Nigro, treats us like we’re his best mates and makes us super comfortable while recording.

What was the biggest learning curve in writing the new tunes?

On the newer songs, we began adding a lot of background synth and sound effect elements. Learning how to integrate that into our sound was a healthy challenge

Would you change anything now it’s finished?

Wouldn’t change a thing. I think that energy is now channeled into future work. We’re happy with how we’ve left our first album.

Is there anything else you would like to share with the world?

Everyone should send Snowfish to 10 friends 🙂
