5 MINUTES WITH… SLOAN PETERSON

We recently did a shoot with the incredible Sloan Peterson. The Australian artist was a dream to work with and looked unreal at Walkers Run in all of our vintage pieces. She’s been super busy touring America but we caught up with her briefly post tour…

For those new to your music how would you describe your sound?

Surf-pop

How did you come to form the band? Where did you all meet?

Well the band kinda changes from time to time but at the moment we have Jess on bass Leroy on Guitar and Jenno on the drums all friend of mine that play in their own/different bands (Jesse Redwing, Leroy Francis, Lime Cordial) they are all the top playas in my eyes so i’m glad to have them be apart of this with me.

What were your musical beginnings?

II started playing piano just learning by ear when i was really young, then would learn classical piano of the sample songs off this cheap keyboard my parents gave me. I picked up guitar at 16 and have been trying to navigate it since.

What artists / decade inspire you the most?

I’m very much a 50’s-70’s style french girl going to late dinner parties in my beret. Being Inspired by the likes of Andy Warhol, David Bowie, Elvis, Francoise Hardy, Brigette Bardot and so on.

You’ve just come back from an American tour, how was it?

MExhaustingggg and greasy (from all the food)

What was it like being on tour with a band full of boys?

I feel like a mother constantly whining about something and them always ganging up on me.

What’s your favourite piece of clothing you own?

HMy Adidas tracksuit

Our followers our big festival-goers, what would be your dream festival to play? And do you have any fun festival survival tips?

Coachella, stay backstage & take advantage of whatever is free haha!

You’re one of the leading lights in the Sydney music scene at the moment, who else should we be looking at for from Sydney?

Maddy Jane, Clews, Jesse Redwing, The Dandelion.

What’s next in the pipeline for you? Any plans to visit us over in the UK?

About to head on Tour with a lil band called Portugal The Man playing some of the biggest stages we have played so far and just getting ready to release song new music soon! Hoping to get to the UK next year.
