Podcast: Hurricane Fall on their country music and heavy metal rock influence | County Leader of St George and Sutherland

The boys of Hurricane Fall are proud to offer one of the best live shows in the country.

Thinking about what they wanted to offer an audience led to the inspired name.

“Every time we did concerts and shows together, it was kind of like a hurricane had passed, there were cups everywhere, it was like the hurricane falling, the remains of debris from a big storm,” singer and guitarist Jesse said. Ve explained.

Part of the power of their live performance is undoubtedly due to the hard rock and heavy metal sounds that influenced the boys growing up in the 1990s.

After working the rock band scene in pubs around Newcastle, in the Hunter region of New South Wales, they decided to return to their hometown roots and the country scene in Tamworth, New South Wales. northeast of the state.

Hurricane Fall reached another milestone at the festival in 2019, with the launch of their debut album, live at the Longyard Hotel. The show sold out.

“It was an amazing achievement that we got this far,” Vee said.

“Like all musicians, the extended lockdown has caged us in the COVID zoo,” Deroy said.

They are still hoping for a regional tour, including festivals such as the Deni Ute Muster, Gympie Music Muster and VDM Fest, all of which have been postponed from 2021.

“We’ve never been more excited to hit the stage with a brand new show and loads of new material,” Deroy said.

This new material includes their latest track, Gooda song that explores the theme of finding love from the right person, in a world where too many things are vying for our attention.

“It’s a catchy song about finding ‘the one’ and resisting the ever-elusive eternal love! It’s about enjoying the journey to the transcendent dream of true love,” Deroy said.

Recorded at Msquared Productions and produced by Michael Paynter and Michael Delorenzis in Melbourne, Good, like the group’s other recent singles, was recorded on Zoom due to COVID restrictions. It’s a track that has a very polished sound to it but with mud on its boots.

Their first single Once again has received over 800,000 streams to date, as well as playlist additions to Spotify’s Fresh Country, New Music Nashville and New Music Friday playlists.

The Tamworth Country Music Festival has been postponed to April 18-24.
