1. How was/is New York? What did you guys do
New York is amazing. We’re pretty busy playing shows, but we’ve had a little bit a free time to wonder around and soak up the vibe. We’ve been spending most of our time in Brooklyn though which we really like. The vibe is pretty unique here, with something different around every corner.
2. Of all of the places that you guys have visited, which place has been your favourite and why?there?
Probably New York. Its just the most iconic I think.
3. What does everyone is the group do to prepare themselves before a performance?
Nothing too crazy, Liam likes to do some push-ups, but other than that we kind of just relax as much as we can and try to get focused. Going into a show with a positive mind frame is probably the most important thing.
4. How did the group form and decide to become “Crooked Colours”?
We’re all from the same area in Western Australia and just met each other through mutual friends who knew we made music. It’s quite a small music scene down there so it was only a matter of time I guess. It wasn’t too long after that, that we decided to start the band officially.
5. Speaking of, who came up with that awesome name?
To be honest, there’s not a lot of meaning behind the name. We knew we wanted to be ‘Crooked ..something’ so we just played around with that for a while until we landed on ‘Colours’. Nobody hated it so it stuck.
6. What do you think you would be doing if “Crooked Colours” never happened?
We would probably be making music in some other capacity. I think the drive to create would still be there.
7. How do you get inspiration when writing songs?
Basically just by listening to a lot of other music. We find ourselves picking little ideas out of whatever we’re listening to at the time. That and moving around. A fresh space does a lot for creativity.
8. Which song would you say is your favorite and why?
Out of our own music? At the moment probably ‘Step’. Maybe just because its the newest, but it feels like it’s a track that is reflecting where we want to go musically at the moment.
9. How do you guys spend your time when you’re not working on your music?
There’s not a lot of time when we’re not working on the project in some way, or busy touring so we don’t really get up to much else. We’re away from home quite a lot so mainly just spending time with friends and family.
10. Do you have any advice for the young artists at Quinnipiac?
Be really sure about what you want to do. Once you know exactly what you’re goal is, it’s a lot easier to find the channels to make it happen.
