Planet Hunter from New Zealand, planet Earth. Check them out on bandcamp.

How would you describe your music?

Our music has been described as Heavy rock with a bias towards stoner rock.

Tell us about how the history of the project?

Three of us formed to basically to hang out, mates for years, we jammed, formed riffs and jams. Then Cormac joined in 2017 (also a mate for years) and the riffs and jams became songs. We spent the next almost year putting lyrics to riffs and coming up with new material at the same time. Dropped our debut EP in November 2018.

What are your influences/ musical heroes?

Our music influences are varied. From Black Sabbath to Radiohead to Flaming Lips to Edvard Grieg and everything in between.

What inspires you?

Seeing Touring acts in our backyard inspires us. EYEHATEGOD recently were especially good! The randomness of creating music as well, often it can feel like a struggle then BANG it clicks. Best feeling ever.

Do you write on the road? Or do you prefer to write in the studio?

We write at home mainly and come together at either Cormacs or Jeds and bang them into shape. We did write the end to Bitter Winds (on the EP) in the studio, (Cormac’s converted shipping container) that turned out to be awesome. No preference on where we write though.

What is your favourite song to perform live?

Our favourite  song to play live is probably a recently written one, that’s always the case with fresh tracks. From the EP though I’d probably say Bitter Winds or Dynotrash.

What would be your dream tour to be a part of?

Our dream tour to be part of would probably be with Faith No More. They recently announced shows around the world right? So, Yeah. That’s totally happening

What are you current thoughts on the music industry?

The music industry is probably more connected and divided than ever, it’s very easy to send a message to a band you love it’s also very easy to stay in your lane and drink the cool aid.

What is the funniest/weirdest experience you have had on tour?

Haven’t toured yet.

What are your future plans?

Our future plans are to make a full length album. We’re doing it now, good things take time, it’ll be released (fingers crossed) late next year.
