Sudden Debt – Melbourne Show Tonight!

by the partae
Where are you currently based?
How did Sudden Debt form?
I wanted to start a new band that used minimal instrumentation. So I went through my messenger contacts cold calling acquaintances until we had 3 members.    
What’s been happening recently?
We’ve released three songs in 2022 which can be streamed on Spotify, Bandcamp, etc.
Your latest single ‘No Data’ is out on October 1st, what influenced the sound and songwriting?
The structure of the band is the biggest influence on the songwriting. We’ve decided to limit what gear we use and the songs have developed in that context. We’re trying to focus on simplicity and portability.    
What does this single mean to you?
It means I’m still playing music post COVID / post mid 20s. It reminds me that I’m privileged to write music and play live in 2022.  
No Data is the third single of a series of three singles, following DD and IIHLL, how would you describe your sound?
Bleak pop. 
Please tell us about the song writing development of your singles:
We limit practice to a couple of hours a fortnight. We start with drum and bass. I record that on my phone and write the vocal and guitar at home. I bring it back to the band. We repeat the process, cutting material that doesn’t come together quickly. 

You are playing on September 29 ay Nighthawks with Techno Biddes & Orbits, what can we expect?
We’re going to try and play on time because we’re playing on a Thursday night. 
Who are you listening to at the moment?
The Rough Skies Records back catalogue which includes The Native Cats, All the Weathers, Slag Queens, Mount Trout, Dolphin, Cured Pink and 208L Containers.  
What’s planned for the remainder of 2022 going into 2023?
We’re going to try and write and record some more music.  
Favourite food and place to hangout?
Pho / Sunshine West.
