To celebrate LISTEN’s new website we’re interviewing a bunch of local Australian artists to profile them on the site. Introducing Magnets:
How would you best describe your music?
How did your band / musical project start?
I’ve always written music, but I’ve not always had the confidence to share it. I guess Magnets started the moment I finally committed and went, ‘fuck it’.
Do you make music with a political focus? If so, what is your focus? If not, why not?
I make music with a mental health focus. Everything I write is exploring the depths of who I am, and what it means to feel. I hope in return others can explore themselves with me.
What has been the biggest highlight as a band?
I’m about to release my debut EP, Perpetual Motion, on Oct 12th. That, so far, is my biggest highlight.
Who are your biggest influences musically right now?
Right now? I’m in love with Lucius. The women bring vocals and strength like no other. I froth everything they make.
Where can people find your music?
