Extended Description

I sat down with Amy and Gus to talk about going from being a local band like so many others to, what seemed like basically overnight, blowing up and having extensive international tours booked, hitting the runway in Milan with Gucci, as well as winning an ARIA music award and several Music Victoria awards. We go their perspectives on their lives as just regular young people in the local music scene trying to have a beer but constantly aware of being known and watched by the faceless world outside of their local pub and how it’s affected them socially and mentally.
