Frozen Alice - Frozen Alice Newsletter Interview

29 Aug 2010 // An interview by Shade

What can we expect to see from Frozen Alice over the next year?

2nd album, already half written, extensive touring of NZ & Australia.

What advice would you like to give to other aspiring musicians?

Keep at it, even when times are hard, there's always something good around the corner.

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

Anyone who has the passion for this industry, is a bloody legend, we love all genres as long as it grooves.

What will Frozen Alice’s next release be?

A single yet to be decided, but we've nearly finished a stonker that is, not on the album, 'Emotional Landscape'.

How do you come up with your lyrics?

Mark the vocalist is a demon with the mystique and a fine lyricist, check out the album, it still gives me shivers..

Who would you most like to support live?

We just love to play live, but if I could choose one band (present) it would be Porcupine Tree.

How do you believe Frozen Alice fits into the NZ music industry?

I believe we are diverse enough to please your Daughter & your Granny

What can you never leave home without?

My Ipod!

How do you describe Frozen Alice’s music?

Eclectic, passionate, emotive, strange & out of the box.

What is your favourite NZ venue?

Kings Arms

What is the best part of being a musician?

Commradery, and watching people digging your creations is indescribable.

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

Hollie Smith gives me chills.

What is in your CD collection at home?

I think it would be simpler to ask what isn't in my collection!! I'm a great supporter of buying, not downloading.. but fav's are Porcupine Tree, Oceansize, Karnivool, Tool, APC, Chicane, Led Zep.. anything that makes you think..

What is your most embarrassing on tour/gig moment?

Having my mute button on the opening crash of first song, split second madness!! Fortunately no one noticed!!

What is your favourite place in NZ to be?

Walking my dog, Honey, at Kerry Kerry beach next to Piha.

What inspired you to start Frozen Alice?

Love of music, beautiful & heavy combination, which I believe we have achieved on our first release!!

How did you come up with the name Frozen Alice?

Always loved the story as a kid & it kind of stays frozen in my memory as 'good times'.

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

We've had a few, but Basement Bar, Taranaki and Kings Arms come to mind.

Although we have just been to Sydney and played a blinder at The Excelsior, pretty amazing as no one had heard of us, and we're Kiwi, eh!!

How do you keep in contact with your fans?

Facebook & MySpace.

What rumour would you like to start about Frozen Alice?

That we have a secret chant before we go onstage, and drink 'Milo'
