Molly & The Chromatics are taking their soulful grooves on a nationwide tour to celebrate the release of their new single Anubis. Silke Hartung caught up with frontwoman Molly Rowlandson a few days before.
We’ve been writing music, playing a few gigs… and in between our drummer has been overseas for three months! But he’s back, and we’re back in the game.
Our guitarist George [Edgar] has an awesome dog – a whippet named Harold. He looks like the ancient Egyptian god Anubis… hence our song Anubis is an ode to Harold.
As per our EP ‘Straight Lines’, we recorded at The Depot in Devonport. The Depot is an awesome little studio. George and I grew up in Devo so it’s nice to keep things local. We recorded it with the awesome and talented Morgan Allen, who produced ‘Straight Lines’ too.
Get organised way in advance! Also make sure you don’t book your tour when there is a fuel crisis to avoid a bit of unnecessary stress! Make sure you have a good relationship with the venue manager and communication is open and clear. And have a really great time!
