In three words, how would you describe your band?

What has your band been up to lately, any tours, notable gigs or record releases?
My debut EP ‘When Night Returns’ was released in May to a packed room at the B.EAST and is available here:
Why do you support renewable energy?
I feel that climate change and the harmful effects that are predicted to be the result is the biggest challenge that humanity has ever faced. The switch to renewable energy is obviously an integral part of any attempt to reverse the damage already done and to prevent any further damage.
There’s an election coming up in Victoria, do you have a message for Victorian politicians on renewable energy and climate change?
If you look deep inside I’m sure you know what the only correct choice is, now act on it!
If your band was a renewable energy source, what would it be and why? (solar power, wind, wave, )
I come from Wellington, one of the windiest cities in the world, so naturally I’d have to say wind. The music varies from a light breeze to, at times, a raging gale.
Rock 4 Renewables is on the 5th of October at the Gasometer Hotel. 484 Smith St. Collingwood, VIC, 3066. 9416 3335.
