There is not doubt that the past twelve months have hit the Australian music scene hard. Shows have been cancelled, festivals put on hold and in a sad state of affairs some artists who had steady gigs are having to turn away from music to make a crust.
“I don’t know how my crew have been surviving truth is I am too scared to ask,” say Icehouse’s frontman Iva Davies as he sits down with Subculture’s Dave Griffiths for a chat. The good news is that Icehouse are joining forces with other great Aussie acts including James Reyne, Boom Crash Opera and Killing Heidi for the Trip The Switch Festival which hopefully will be a start to a new dawn for Austraian music.
Take a listen to the interview to hear Iva chat about the festival and also about the music he discovered while in lockdown.
