Speaking to Drowned In Sound in the middle of their current UK tour, the Australian trio explained that they borrowed from the Men In Black II star to create their critically acclaimed drum beats.
“It actually came from 'Can’t Stop You Can’t Get Enough' [we think they mean 'Don't Stop Til You Get Enough'], the Michael Jackson song," states lead singer Dan Whitford. "The more percussive sounds, were quite primitive, we had like bells and blocks and stuff like that. Then, we also had ladders and contact mics taped on things to get quite clunky, industrial sounds."
Elaborating on their tendency to simultaneously look back and peer forward in time during the songwriting process, Whitford confessed, "With our music, we often take an idea from the seventies and project it forward. I mean, imagine if the biggest band in the early seventies was Can, and what would the music of now be like, if they were The Beatles.”
