Lost Tuesday Society is a 6-piece band that collectively come from a variety of different musical backgrounds and therefore bring with them a variety of personal influences; from traditional and alternative folk, grunge and shoe-look, funk, psychedelia and rock.
The result is a unique mix of music with intricate compositions, strong hooks, and melodic lines that combine into a huge dynamic sound that gets people on their feet.
With four vocalists (Sarah, Kate, Darran, and Alfie) in the band, the harmonies are interesting, beautiful, and an important element to the sound of Lost Tuesday Society. With a heavier baseline and driving rhythm section (Jay and Simon) and two accomplished guitarists (on Alfie and Darran), the new material introduced today has a maturity and edge that is beautifully enhanced by weaving strings (Kate ), flute (Alfie) and melodic (Sarah).
We have had the pleasure of speaking with them and this has been the result.
Hi ! Where can we find you right now? How did you start your day?
Currently we are sitting in a hover-canoe in 2112 seeing how our 7th album was received. We started our day with some holo-apples, Kwoflox and Astral Flakes with cloud milk.
When did the idea of starting a project start to take shape? Has it always been something you wanted to do?
The idea began in the minds of songwriters Sarah and Darran who scoured time and space to find the right members of the band. They succeeded but it cost them three lives. It was something the whole band wanted, even if they didn’t want or mean to not want the wanting of wanting it at the time.
How would you define the sound of your latest work? What is the concept behind?
The songs are the culmination of our individual and collective input but the album name “Bee Skin Rug” derives from the concept of human decadence.
What artists are you interested in these days?
King Goon, Bandicoot, Peter Crow.
How do you manage to combine such disparate genres? How do you manage to give them unity and harmony? What do they have in common for you?
Thank you for asking thats an interesting interest of ours. I think the underlying answer to that is friendship, the ability to express the soulful connection of six people, their influences, their lives, all that makes them ‘them’ through the medium of wood plastic metal and wire and words. In the words of Queen it’s a kind of magic.
How would you define your sound?
Depends on the scenario. Either words or music. Maybe interpretive dance.
Can you tell us something about your current or future projects?
Music music music, songs and more songs and videos and plays and secret kaleidoscope mime. Whatever it is we’d love to let you know
