Woodlock Bring The Goods with New Single, Talk About Debut Album

Posted by: on Dec 4, 2016 | No Comments

2016 has been a massive year. In terms of what Yarrawonga via Melbourne boys Woodlock have been up to? Well they’ve released a cracking cover of The Monkees Last Train To Clarksville, played at the MCG and released a new single Something Broke That Day. What does that mean in the grand scheme of things? Well. Yay :D, it means new music in 2017.

 

Sitting in his converted garage in his house in Yarraville, it’s been a busy time of late for Eze Walters, lead singer and guitarist for the folk rock outfit. Sitting at his computer with recording gear around, guitars on stands and a Honda C110 outside the door awaiting the next busking session, Walters is full of passion as we begin to chat about one of the best music scenes around. “It’s an awesome music here. There are a lot of pubs and places you can play and the amount of festivals over summer is pretty intense too.”

Influenced by a trip to China, the latest single Something Broke That Day, is inspired by a dark fantasy story. Following on from the Sirens EP, the sound of the band is moving in bigger directions taking on a little bit of an electronic sound. “Its about a love story that goes wrong where a guy gets jealous of a romance and he accidently kills her. It’s a dark song. We were over in China for a week and a bit and I have never been to anywhere so culturally different. We got the gig from busking on the street after meeting (what we discovered after) this guy that was the owner of a multi billion-dollar company. They paid for us to go over there and we got treated like royalty.”

One of the coolest gigs that the band has played this year was the chance to play at the home of sport in Australia, the MCG. “I was really happy with how we played that day. There was about eight stages where people could walk around and drink beer and eat. It was such a great environment. There was a stage in the changing rooms and a great vibe to the day.”

Talking at the end of November, the conversation quickly turned towards the favourite albums of 2016. Good friends and equally awesome musicians, Winterbourne with their EP Pendulum tops Walter’s list yet he is excited to hear what the new John Mayer album The Search For Everything will sound like. On tour throughout January and February, you can be sure to hear a lot of new stuff when the boys take to the road. “We are definitely aiming to bring out something a little larger to scale after a few Eps but it’s literally double the price. We’re releasing singles getting an idea of what people want and you’ll hear a lot more from us next year.”
