With the recent release of third single ‘Tic/Toc‘, Sydney outfit The Mis-Made are slowly building anticipation for a full-length release next year.
Drawing inspiration from a recent controversial court case involving a high ranking religious identity, lead guitarist/vocalist Jess Finlayson doesn’t hold back with both her lyrics and thoughts.
“Musically it’s quite heavy”, she said of the single. “We had two new band members join at the beginning of the year so it’s getting a bit heavier but it still has that punk, pop sort of a vibe. It’s a pretty heavy content song. I kind of wrote it around the Pell case so I was really angry about the power dynamic of people getting away with doing disgusting things to people and pretty much walking away from it. We recorded it only a couple of weeks ago and did the film clip in the studio at the same time which is a bit different for us because we usually go a little bit over the top with our clips (laughs)”.
In the full interview Jess runs us through the song and film clip in greater detail, reveals the release plans for an upcoming album and how it differs from earlier material, the value of releasing singles in the modern music age, former band Nitocris, her early vision for The Mis-Made and how she wanted the band to differ musically from Nitocris, touring, her thoughts on how to improve the Australian music industry, future shows and more.
