Mi­nor­ity’s ma­jor plan

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - WHAT’S ON -

IT only took Dou­ble Lined Mi­nor­ity six months to smash their New Year’s goal of play­ing at least 50 shows in 2013. The lo­cal pop-punk quar­tet are on a mis­sion to ‘‘spread their mu­sic as far as pos­si­ble’’ and they try to play at least three shows a week. Front­man Ed­die Salazar says the band will head over­seas in Au­gust to play to young crowds in Sin­ga­pore and the Philip­pines. ‘‘It’s crazy, but it’s fun,’’ he says. ‘‘I think a band’s live show de­fines what they are re­ally about. We are a live band. (Gui­tarist) Cameron (Grif­fiths) does back­flips dur­ing the sets. Our show is loud and fast and that’s prob­a­bly what teenagers come to see.’’ Dou­ble Lined Mi­nor­ity re­leased their de­but al­bum, Fin­gers Crossed, in 2011. This week, they re­leased the fol­low-up, Call­ing All Liars. Salazar says the new record shows off the band’s new­found ma­tu­rity. ‘‘The last one was about what you go through in high school – teenage love, de­pres­sion, fam­ily re­la­tion­ships and par­ties,’’ he says. ‘‘This one is less self­ish and more self re­flec­tive. It’s about the de­sire to get out of re­ally bor­ing rou­tines. It’s dy­namic and cov­ers more sounds.’’ Dou­ble Lined Mi­nor­ity will share the stage with three other south­east Queens­land bands tonight for QMu­sic’s Round and Round and Up and Down tour. ‘‘There will be heaps of friends and fam­ily there so it will be in­ti­mate and emo­tional, with a few ded­i­ca­tions.’’
