Slated to play the nascent Jim Beam Bourbon Fest - a music festival that looks uncannily just like the inside of a 15 year old boy’s head, complete with bikini-clad girls, rock bands and plenty of bourbon - Sound Casino is moving from crest to crest in the sea of up and coming rock outfits in Australia. Carlisle Rogers takes a gamble on Sound Casino.
Sound Casino is hot on the heels of their Seven Seas single being licensed by Toyota for their new Aurion advertising campaign and the release of their debut EP of the same name via iTunes.
Working on their debut album, lead singer Andy Crosby says they are three quarters of the way there, with only a handful of songs left to finish. “We’re looking to finish that off by about mid-June. We are in rehearsal most days. We write at home and then go to rehearsal to work on the new material. It’s going really well. We are getting there. Once we finish up the last few songs we will go and record them properly in one of the studios around here. We have four more songs to record. We have done nine, but we want to do a few more and chop a few. They’re written, they have to be recorded, mixed, mastered, all that sort of stuff.
“We did the first half of the Seven Seas EP at 301 in Byron Bay, and a few more tracks at 301 in Sydney. We will probably go up to either of those studios to finish up the record. We got to spend two and a half weeks in Byron, which was great. We were working with a great producer up there called Robert Feaster, which was cool. We were looking for a producer who had done stuff similar to our sound and listening to a bunch of demos. I think we went through the music industry directory and looked up websites and listened to stuff online and Rob’s stuff clicked with us. We gave him a call and he was keen to do the project. We asked where he wanted to track it and 301 Byron was his call. So we went up there and loved it. It’s a great studio.”
Andy says that the whole band contributes to writing the songs, there isn’t one megalomaniacal band leader. “Usually people come up with an idea at home and bring it to rehearsal. We jam it out as a band to make it one of our songs. Sometimes someone will come in with something complete. Sometimes it will be pretty vague. We just get into the rehearsal studio and jam it out until it becomes cool. There’s no rules to who writes…everyone gets to write whatever. We just try to make sure it sits in with the band’s sound, but it usually does.”
After playing together with bassist Ant Cooper for years in a few bands, they decided to recruit some new guys in Sydney two years ago. “We put an ad out in street press to start a new project. We got hundreds of telephone calls and stuff and we held auditions and got James on guitar and Tim on drums. We started working and it sounded good, so we’ve been going ever since.”
