Interview: Traveller & Fortune At Bigsound 2012
Though they joke about being ‘not indie, but not not indie’, there’s a lot of truth in the idea in regards to Adelaide’s Traveller & Fortune. Having built the foundations of a band that can’t and won’t neatly fit into one box, the band showcased their unique vibe at BIGSOUND Live.
Having originally started off with new members, the band has now found a lineup worthy of representing their name. The members briefly chat to the team about their origins, before we get to the nitty gritty of it, discussing the very topical Adelaide Live Music scene.
The band paint a much different picture from most when talking about their city. Describing a much more vibrant and active culture than most people think, Traveller & Fortune believe it’s in no worse shape than any other city’s live music scene. With venues closing in states all over the world, we discuss whether this should be handled on a federal level, rather than state by state.
The band touch on their new single, and let us know what the near future will hold for them.
