To celebrate LISTEN’s new website we’re interviewing a bunch of local Australian artists to profile them on the site. Introducing Poppongene:
How would you best describe your music?
Dreamy guitar pop
How did your band / musical project start?
Music has always been something that’s hung around my life, but I suppose this project properly began when I showed some friends some songs and they kindly encouraged me to do something with it all.
Do you make music with a political focus? If so, what is your focus? If not, why not?
I suppose my songs reflect my experience of the world as a female and I don’t try to stifle that. Some songs a bit more politically fem than others.
What has been the biggest highlight as a band?
We supported Weyes Blood last year which was 100% unreal. We’ve just finished an EP and it’s waiting in the wings to be released. It will be a highlight went it finally sees the light of day!
Who are your biggest influences musically right now?
Melbourne’s music community
Where can people find your music?
