Q and A with East

I never seem to hear from artists from the NSW Central Coast, but here’s a goodun’.
East is letting her music speak for itself, because the teasing song Old Age (she is only 16 years old) is a fait accompli, grabbing international attention pretty early on. I won’t say much more, but this bird gave me some quick interview love. Get to know East; I suspect there’s more good to come.

A Has Been: What are some of your musical influences?
East: I take inspiration from a lot of different artists, but if I had to name a few I’d say Ellie Goulding, Imogen Heap, Jeff Buckley, and The Wombats.

AHB: What about non-musical influences?
East: I’m really inspired by a lot of the great philosophers, poets and writers, such as Friedrich Nietzsche, Oscar Wilde, and John Keats.

AHB: Tell me a bit about your EP, and your work with John Castle?
East: I wanted my EP to have a bit of a variety. I wanted each song to show a different side of me. Working with John was incredible! It was amazing to see what he and I could do together in the space of five days (which is how long we had to record the EP).

AHB: What is the music scene like at the Central Coast?
East: I think there’s heaps of talent on the Coast, but there just aren’t that many venues and events to play at. After a while, you end up making your way to Sydney.

AHB: Have you got any plans for 2014?
East: I plan on gigging a lot around the Sydney area, and also hopefully making another EP!

    miya より:Hi RyuVery good to hear from you. How’s life in Boston?Actually there are lot’s of Condos there which were converted in to luaxury cond’s from hotels before they were started their construction.I don’t know the exact reson why, but anyway I saw some of them such us Jean Nouvel’s and HdeM’s around Soho. They are now under consrtuction. You will see Nouvel’s has almost done the exterior, but the latter has just exposed its concrete structure so far.Of course their rents are surprising. While the new upper class are living in Brooklyn such as along L-line rising up the average incomes and rents of the areas, the luxury Manhattan areas such as around Soho are boosting up its prestigious states by rebuilding brand new buildings.What’s also amazing is Prada in Soho designed by OMA has been rearranged the interior. Its first floor was originally designed as only a kind of show window’/ void space, and the basement was for retail for men/women. But now the first floor is just a men’s floor and the basement floor is for women. The charming cabinet designed by SANAA seemed in no use. It seems the fundamental idea well-organized Programing space’ has totally gone. It is sadly just a commercial space like others swallowed into Sohoism’.
