Interview: Katie Noonan Talks New EP, Tour & Working With Leunig

Katie Noonan started her music career in a band when she was only 18. Having performed with a long list of collaborators since then, including a circus, Noonan has gone back to her roots on new EP Peace Is My Drug, and is taking her new tracks on the road this March.

“There’s no circus on this [tour]. I might do a bit of choreo[graphy] if I’ve had a few wines… With this project it’s really more about this kind of world I’m making back with my band. I’m kind of going back to where I started, it’s feeling awesome,” Noonan says.

Describing Peace Is My Drug, which is available now, Noonan said it has “more digital stuff”, “really cool synths” and vocoder. “[Vocoder] is so daggy but it’s so not daggy,” she said.

Having worked with cartoonist Michael Leunig on Peace Is My Drug, Noonan added that her trio, Elixir, are working with him on a full album.

“We’re working with Michael [Leunig] on a full body of work, a full album, also hopefully incorporating him live. We’re just trying to work out how to make that happen… probably projection stuff somehow but in a really new way, not in a predictable way hopefully,” she said.

Katie Noonan’s March tour begins in Melbourne on 12th March.
