Young Night tak­ing big gig dreams to Lon­don

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - LIVE ’N’ LOUD -

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.
