We caught up with Academie to find out what they’ve been up to.
For those who are new to Academie – how would you describe your sound?
An eclectic mix of viola loops, dirty guitars, electronic textures, drenched in meloncholy and reverb, with an anthemic quality.
You’ve both been involved in the SA music scene for a number of years. What do you think the state of the industry is at the moment?
It’s tough for bands at the moment. Although I think it’s always been tough for the kind of bands that we’ve played in in this country, that requires more of a listening audience. At the same time I feel like the scene has never been more vibrant, with a truly diverse mix of bands and genres that could cater to anybody’s taste.
We’re looking forward to your set at The Good Luck Bar’s 2nd birthday! GLB has done much for the industry in terms of venue, but why do you think there are such a shortage of great venues for bands to play?
Good Luck Bar has been the saving grace for a lot of bands. I think as much as bands struggle to make money, venues also struggle to stay afloat with a dwindling live audience.
Where else can fans catch you live over the next few months?
We’re playing Oppikoppi in October and we’re pulling out all the stops!
