What’s been the most memorable moment on tour so far?

The whole experience of going and playing in Holland was particularly memorable – it was the coldest country I’ve ever been to in my entire life.

When I was packing my clothes it was 43ºC in Australia, crazy hot, and then we get to Holland and it’s -10ºC!

I haven’t been in the snow at all before so, for me, that was way colder than anything before. And for an Australian to get the opportunity to play this big warehouse there was great fun. 

When did you realise things were taking off?

When I played the Splendour In The Grass festival last August. I didn’t have any expectations.

I was playing super early, at 2pm, and the tent was nearly full when I started – and it was a 7000-person tent.

It was like, holy fuck! Playing to that many people was when I realised, ‘OK, this is getting serious.’

What are your plans for the year?

I am heading back home for a bit but I don’t have a weekend off for the next five months. 

I also have another project called What So Not (duo with Emoh Instead), which is a kind of club thing we’re touring around Australia, too. And I’ll be back here in the summer as well. 

You’re a busy man ... ?

The amount of sleep I’ve got on this tour is fucked.

This is the second time in four days I’ve played a club show at 2am and had a flight at 6am or 7am for the next show.

So we stay at the club, then go straight to the airport, but when we try and check in at the hotel it’s too early. I’m getting like two hours’ sleep!

What are you doing for Australia Day?

I’ll probably be in transit somewhere. I don’t even think I’ll see it as we are flying back on the 25th, and you lose that day, so I literally won’t even have an Australia Day this year!
