Artist Profile ~ Poppongene

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?
