Mount Gambier isn’t a town usually associated with heavier music acts but that is about to change following the release of Higgs Field‘s debut EP Paracusia, an eclectic yet cohesive first offering from a young band intent on shaking up the system.
Blending grunge, rock, metal and hard rock into a tightly wound slab of original music, Higgs Field have shown a maturity beyond their years with this release, promising an even brighter future for a band who openly admit they just want to have fun.
The whole band sat down with HEAVY during the week for a refreshingly open chat about music and their growing place in it.
“When we first sat down we had a few things in mind,” offered guitarist/vocalist Liam. “We really wanted to do things in our own way by making it different; making it sound and I don’t mean to sound nasty – but there’s a lot of thrash bands that I love but they all sound the same. There’s a lot of metal where not a lot of new elements come into it. We wanted to do something different. We just want to write music that we want to write at the end of the day.”
In the full interview, the band talks about the EP in greater detail, the diversity of genres contained on it and the importance of showcasing a wide array of music, the title and meaning behind it, being a young band trying to find their way during COVID and more.
