Hiya! I’m Cal and I’m the singer & songwriter.
We just moved back home from Melbourne to Sydney.
That’s when I knew I was ready again. One evening not soon after I called Dan asking if he wanted to start a disco duo and before I could finish my pitch he cut me off mid sentence telling me to “shut up already, I’m IN” and promptly hung up on me.
We just played our homecoming show, Moonlanding, at The Factory Theatre with our new 3 part horn section, The Hornshank Redemption.
As per usual, love inspired the songwriting. This time, it’s from a new found love and where it could go.
It usually starts with my acoustic and I spending some time together. I write the chords, vocal melody, lyrics and structure and then take the first draft to the boys. We plug in and from there.
We’ve had a home studio for the last 3 years. This was the last track we recorded in our studio during lockdown in melbourne last October. It’s also the first song of ours that we recorded, produced and master completely ourselves.
We usually record a draft vocal and guitar and then build each instrument layer by layer. Multiple times as each roles part becomes more developed.
The best part about playing live is the crowd. Seeing people singing along to our songs and having their own connection to those lyrics and dancing free of any worry is something truly special and I cherish that.
Social Media really forced us to think outside the box while stuck at home last year. Our best is yet to come.
Always listening to Steely Dan, Toto and Whitney Houston but I’ve actually been listening to Ben Folds Five most recently!
Pretend I’m Larry Bird winning his third consecutive 3 point competition.
Finishing up a couple more singles, a live tour, a disco concept album and launching another project ‘Hot Glass’.
