Tully on Tully have gone back to basics with their new single Two Birds. With floating synthesisers as a foundation, the simple melodies are complemented by an interesting rhythmic structure hailing back to yesteryear.

Fronted by the breathtaking vocals of Natalie Foster, Tully on Tully are both delicate and powerful, demonstrating flawless mastery of instruments and vocals.

How did Tully on Tully come together?

We’ve all played in other bands but when Pete, Iain and I met at uni and started playing together we really loved it.

Six months later, Greg and Frank joined and we came up with the name Tully

tully-on-tully-final-imageWhich local artists have inspired your music?

Neighbourhood Youth, Pourparlour, Playwrite, Secondhand Heart… there are so many! Particularly from a live aspect because they’re the bands that we’re seeing on a regular basis.

How do you go about writing and composing songs?

Our old songs were written by me and then brought to the band to arrange but all the newer tracks started as jams that I wrote lyrics for later. We got into a real groove writing our debut album – I think we’re all itching to write the next one already!

What would be your advice for other aspiring musicians?

Keep making music and work your arse off.

Friday April 17 – Lennox Hotel, Lennox Heads.
