Pavlova and The Jandals - Pavlova and The Jandals Newsletter Interview

09 Apr 2010 // An interview by Shade

Thanks to Joel for answering these questions:

What can we expect to see from Pavlova and The Jandals over the next year?

Lots of great shows, our debut album, more quirky stop motion videos, and more music!

What will your next release be?

Our Debut self-titled album will be out on the 15th of April!

Who are your favourite NZ musicians/bands, and why?

Fly My Pretties, the Woolshed Sessions. Lisa Crawley, Hannah Howes, The Eastern, The Mint Chicks, Roger Manins, Dixon Nacey, The Twitch, Yebisu, Coach, BlacksandDiva, and The Sproutts! There are so many great artists in New Zealand at the moment, it's really inspiring.

Who would you most like to support live?

I'd pick the Woolshed Sessions, Ryan Adams and the Cardinals, or Feist. Or Ricky Gervais!

How do you believe Pavlova and The Jandals fits into the NZ music industry?

Pavlova and the Jandals is a collaborative band; we all play each others' songs, and everybody has input into what comes out. It's inspiring how there is so much collaboration in the Wellington scene, with Fly my Pretties, and the Woolshed sessions etc. Everybody plays on everybodys' stuff! This is starting to happen a bit more in Auckland, so hopefully we can help keep it moving. We'd love to jam with all you fullas!

How do you describe your music?

I'll wash, you dry. Chur!

What is the best part of being in Pavlova and The Jandals?

The best part of it for me personally, is being playing guitar on songs that I really like, with people who I really like. Having the privilege of playing music to an audience is absolutely awesome!

What NZ musicians or bands would you like to see more of, and why?

Anything led by Neil Watson is always fantastic to watch and to hear.

What is your most embarrassing on tour/gig moment?

Nothing too bad yet. We are touring from next week tho, with a camera and a dictaphone, so watch this space!!

How did you come up with the name Pavlova and The Jandals?

We are a winning combination of sugar and rubber.

What is the best gig you have ever performed at, and why?

We sold out our christmas showcase at The Wine Cellar. This was the first gig with all 5 of us, and we played through all of the songs which are on the album, some for the first time. Looking forward to heaps of great gigs over the next few weeks!

How do you keep in contact with your fans?

We are touring both Islands from the 15th of April. So come and see us for a geez and a yarn. 

We're on Facebook and we'd love you to be our friend on there.
Check our MySpace for dates. Hope to see all you fellas soon. Chur!

 

About Pavlova and The Jandals

Combining alt-country, pop, folk, and rock, Pavlova and The Jandals is a collaborative project between five prolific Auckland musicians, all of whom play in other well known bands. The band formed in winter 2009 and recorded their 14 track album live over a weekend in ‘The Commune’ in the wild west of Waitakere. Their Auckland shows have been such a sold-out success that they have decided to take it on the road, to the rest of NZ. It will be the first time that the Pavlova and the Jandals crew have gathered together outside of their hometown of Auckland and they are excited to share their creations with the country.

Featuring Fleur Jack (The Twitch, Kiwi Fm), Chris Howard (The Sproutts), Simon Ross (Yebiisu, We Dunno), Joel Vinsen (Black Sand Diva), and Todd Beeby (Kitsch, Dr Colossus, Coach), Pavlova and the Jandals has a diverse and distinctly Kiwi flavour.

With four songwriters, and such a wide pool of experience and style, Pavlova and the Jandals delivers a vibrant and original show, with band members swapping instruments between sets, having a laugh and generally keeping it tight and heavily entertaining. Their sound has been described as “I'll wash, you dry”.
