Switch on to band’s funky fre­quency

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

FRESH off the back of a tour with Bernard Fan­ning, Sun­shine Coast vibe-sharer Shan­non ‘‘Sol’’ Car­roll and his quar­tet Band of Fre­quen­cies bring their ex­per­i­men­tal, psychedelic and surf-roots flavours to the Gold Coast this weekend. Front­man and chief song­writer Car­roll says the name Band of Fre­quen­cies refers to the con­cept that each per­son vi­brates at a cer­tain fre­quency ‘‘with the low­est be­ing fear and hate and the high­est be­ing love and com­pas­sion’’. ‘‘Like ra­dio and TV sta­tions, we also broad­cast our par­tic­u­lar band of fre­quen­cies at any given mo­ment,’’ he says. ‘‘We are just a Band of Freq’s do­ing our thing to raise the col­lec­tive fre­quency through sound.’’ The pro­gres­sive rock­ers have shared stages with the likes of Dono­van Franken­re­iter, John But­ler, An­gus Stone and Ash Grun­wald. The band re­leased Rise Like the Sun last year.

Band of Fre­quen­cies, Wax­head and Zac Gun­thorpe play The Sound­lounge, Cur­rumbin, tomorrow night.
