Interview: The Audreys – “We Love Telling Stories About Loveable Losers”
Music Feeds was recently lucky enough to speak to acclaimed Adelaide duo The Audreys, made up of singer Taasha Coates and guitarist Tristan Goodall, ahead the release of their newly unveiled fourth studio album, Til My Tears Roll Away. The album is the follow-up to 2010’s Sometimes The Stars, and follows several big changes for this homegrown blues duo.
“It’s the first time we’ve really recorded quite fast and turned it around quite fast. It’s good, because there’s a danger if you take too long with something of overcooking it. So we recorded in like three or four days,” Taasha tells us. The pair recorded the new album on the same desk used on releases by legends INXS and Midnight Oil, which Taasha tells us took their engineer two weeks to disassemble and bring over from Sydney.
Speaking on the album’s first single, My Darlin’ Girl, which they were gracious enough to perform for us, Taasha says, “I’m singing first person about a girl whose father is a drinker and a gambler and my father is neither of those things [laughs] so it’s not exactly [a personal song], but it’s a character that I can relate to and we love telling stories about losers, loveable losers!”
The Audreys’ ‘Til My Tears Roll Away’ is available now.
