Introduce us to your band!
We are Planet Hunter and we play Rock n’ Roll music.
How did you guys start out?
Three of us formed the band to basically hang out: mates for years, we jammed, formed riffs and jams. Then Cormac joined in 2017 (also a mate for years) and the riffs and jams became songs. We spent the next year putting lyrics to riffs and coming up with new material at the same time. We dropped our debut EP in November 2018.
Describe your band’s sound
Our music has been described as Heavy rock with a bias towards Stoner Rock.
What influences your craft?
Our musical influences are varied. From Black Sabbath, to Radiohead, to Flaming Lips, to Edvard Grieg, and everything in between
What makes your project different?
It’s probably Cormac, our singer. Lately he’s been using a camera on the microphone and projecting his face on a canvas behind the drummer, which we think is pretty cool. He also has been wearing an EyeBall for the first hand full of songs in our sets..it’s really hot in there!
When introducing people to your music, what song should I show them first? What is your quintessential track?
Celestial Tongue, it’s the first song on our EP. We’ve also been getting good feedback on a track called Bitter Winds – the second track on the EP.
What has been the biggest struggle in your career so far?
The biggest struggle so far is finding the family/life/work balance.
What has been the biggest highlight in your career so far?
Well so far it would releasing our EP. A drop in the ocean, but it’s helped us get out there a little more.
How bright is the future of your band – what are the plans?
Our future is very bright. We are working on a full length album – set to be released later in 2020 – and we have some great gigs lined up locally.
When all is said and done, how would you like to be remembered?
We would like to be remembered by those who enjoyed our music for what we did.
