Young Night taking big gig dreams to London
BRISBANE band Young Night’s Gold Coast gig on Saturday may be the first outside their hometown, but the indie rock ’n’ roll quartet is already dreaming big. Frontman Will McConchie, guitarists Jack Nielsen and Jean-Marc Wicht and drummer Nick Wellauer say there’s no point trying to make it in the music game unless your eyes are set on the big prize. ‘‘Music is the hardest industry to crack into, you have to work hard and dream hard,’’ says Nielsen. ‘‘We plan to move to London at the end of the year for a couple of years. We want to try to break into the international market . . . we’ve all tossed in standard professions to give it a go.’’ Nielsen says singles Another Me and Probably, Yes, inspired by Kings of Leon and The Strokes, share a similar flavour. ‘‘We also love Vampire Weekend and Tame Impala so we try to jumble all those sounds together,’’ he says. ‘‘We don’t want to sound like one particular person.’’
Young Night play The Loft, Chevron Island with Sons of The Morning and Baltimore Gun Club on Saturday.
