DEMONS IN A DAZE OVER FALLS GIG

Comment News (Gosnells) - - Lifestyle -

JOSHUA Chan could be about to line up along­side the likes of Flume, Fleet Foxes and Oa­sis front­man Liam Gal­lagher.

The Thorn­lie res­i­dent’s band De­mon Days (a nod to one of Gor­ri­laz’ defin­ing al­bums) are in the run­ning to se­cure a spot on the Falls Fes­ti­val line-up in Jan­uary.

As part of the fes­ti­val’s Fos­ter a Band com­pe­ti­tion, De­mon Days are one of six bands hop­ing to win a pub­lic vote that would se­cure their sport on the line-up.

Chan de­scribed the pos­si­bil­ity alone of be­ing able to play along­side the likes of Run the Jewels, Fos­ter the Peo­ple and The Kooks, as well as the afore­men­tioned acts, as “in­sane”.

“Be­ing able to play with peo­ple we look up to, to play along­side them, would be amaz­ing,” he said.

The key­boardist said his band’s sound, partly in­flu­enced by Erykah Badu, com­bined el­e­ments of jazz, funk and hip hop.

“It comes to­gether pretty nat­u­rally, we all listen to sim­i­lar enough mu­sic, so when it comes to­gether, it’s quite a nat­u­ral process,” he said.

Chan said the band would be in­cred­i­bly grate­ful if they man­aged to win the vote, es­pe­cially given the quar­tet only met about a year ago at the West­ern Aus­tralian Acad­emy of Per­form­ing Arts.

“We al­ready con­sider our­selves one of the luck­i­est bands and get­ting this would be the best thing ever,” he said.

The poll on the Falls Fes­ti­val web­site closes tonight and re­sults will be an­nounced in Novem­ber.
