Mister Co Interview

by the partae
Where are you currently based?
We are currently based in the North West suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria.
What’s been happening recently?
Lately, we have been really busy, traveling around Australia, performing as much as we can. We have been focusing heavily on finishing our debut Album “On This Journey”, reflecting on our lives together so far and exploring new sounds and feels.
Your latest single ‘Don’t Talk About It’ will be released on June 17, what influenced the sound and songwriting?
We both love “Rock” music and grew up listening to 80’s, 90’s, and modern rock, and we felt this sound did the theme of the new single justice. Lyrically the track explores the themes of self liberation and disconnecting from people who do not support you and stad in the way of you and your happiness. The centre of the song was our experience coming out together as a couple, the fears, trials and obstacles we had to overcome to find happiness together.
How did you go about writing Don’t Talk About It?
This one was actually really easy, it was one of those things where once we started it just flowed. Lyrically and melodically it only took us 4 hours to write this track, there were so many things bottled up that this song allowed us to release and let go of.
Where and when did you record/produce/master and who did you work with?
We started recording the song in our home studio in September 2022 and reached demo phase really quickly. We then took a break from it and revisited it in March this year where Dominik Honold from Protonaut Studios from Germany took the track for mix, master and co-production.
Please tell us about the inspirations and influences for the project:
How did the project come about?
Mister Co. was the platform we created to share our music together and with our audience. Both being musicians and always having a hand in music, after our honeymoon in April 2022 we sat down and came up with the name and the rest is now history.
What it’s like working with your partner? What are the challenges & benefits?
Honestly it is such an incredible experience, we get to do something we both love together and we get to share all the successes and achievements side by side. Creative differences are always a challenge but if you use the differences and fuse them into one sound you start creating a new feel which reflects the both of us separately and together. Being a creative can be a lonely road, so to have your partner there with you the whole way really helps the mind and soul.
Where do you feel most inspired to write music?
Honestly together, the where isn’t really important to us. Being seasoned travelers we seem to write wherever we travel drawing inspiration from our surroundings.
Who are you listening to at the moment?
We are always listening to the greats, but more recently we have fallen in love with Allen Stone and everything indie soul.
What do you like to do away from music?
We actually both run a business called Pinnacle Choice in the real estate industry, so away from music we love building our family business, traveling wherever we can, and sitting on the couch playing PS5 together.
What’s planned for the remainder of 2023?
2023 is a massive year for us, we will be supporting our first tour with Eamon Conor in September, releasing another 3 singles and finishing up our debut album for a 2024 release.
Favourite food and place to hang out?

THIS IS A HARD ONE, but we would both agree we love Japanese food and hanging out on our road trips across the country.
