Bit­ten by the mu­sic bug

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

NAOMI Robin­son says hear­ing her band’s song played on the ra­dio for the first time was “pretty strange.”

The Pres­by­te­rian Ladies’ Col­lege Year 12 stu­dent, to­gether with Church­lands Se­nior High School Year 12 stu­dent Conor Bar­ton, cre­ated their band Mos­quito Coast when they were both just 14 years old.

Last week, they were an­nounced as a fi­nal­ist in the Triple J Un­earthed High com­pe­ti­tion.

“I re­ally like Har­ri­son Ford and es­pe­cially the film Mos­quito Coast by Aussie di­rec­tor Peter Weir,” Naomi said. “We were bounc­ing back ideas about band names and then we landed on Mos­quito Coast and it kind of just stuck with us.”

Naomi said while they still try­ing to find their sound, they would keep mak­ing more mu­sic.

“We love mu­sic so I think we will al­ways be play­ing,” she said.

The win­ner of Un­earthed High will be an­nounced on Thurs­day, Au­gust 20.
