“The new tour is going to be pretty different from the ‘Boys Like You’ tour,” says 360, real name Matt Colwell. “It’s actually going to be insane. I reckon it’s gonna be one of the highlights of the year, for me anyway. We’re gonna be doing a much longer set which will include a lot of the older and newer stuff – we’re just trying to incorporate as much material as we can into one show. I don’t want it to be just one rapper and a DJ, that’s getting boring now; I’m planning on having lots of special guests, and adding really cool visual elements to the performance.”
“The concept of the band came before the band itself,” singer Nick Finch says. I’ve asked whether his infamous horror/country/chain-gang collective Graveyard Train have become more concept-focused than intended. “The idea was to have a country-horror band with a whole bunch of guys making a whole bunch of noise on stage and singing songs about death and stuff. It has really developed a lot since then; we were a lot more country in the early days, but we are not really now.” The band are getting set to launch their new album Hollows, a dark and rollicking eleven tracks of minor chords and morbid lyrics. “I wonder if fans are going to like this,” he says. “It’s a long way from where it started.”
Not many people can mash together a clip of Tom Hanks with Dr. Dre and not only make it funny, but somehow effortlessly cool.

Hayley Mary, the singer and the face of Sydney’s The Jezabels, has just arrived in Seattle and is settling in for a rare day off when we talk. At just 25 years of age, she is weary from travel and repetitive interviews but still incredibly warm, and exhibits a confusion over why anyone would be interested in her that’s both self-effacing and charming. She is shocked that she is morphing, slowly, into a bona fide rock star; the personification of a band that began at the University of Sydney as a four-part democracy of simple music making.
