INTERVIEW // Ben Gillies On: Breathe in Breathe Out, Growing Up In Newcastle, Silverchair and the Impact of Music

I went out to Byron Bay and we didn’t really have a plan. I said “hey look I’ve got this idea I think might have the magic juice”. I showed him and started singing the chorus line “just breathe” and that was it. He just turned around and said that’s it, that’s the one. We finished the song about two days. It’s really funny how some tracks that you can sit on for weeks on end, and some just come together so naturally.

SINGLE REVIEW // ‘Quiet People’ – Tom Vs Tom

‘Quiet People’ is a groovy track, with excellent production and brilliant vocals. It’s a track that needs to instantly be added to every playlist. The song with immediately transport you to days in the city, or chilled out moments by the beach. Personally, I believe this track is a brilliant stand out in the music industry.
