Chatting With Animus Before The Gig

Alternative rock band Animus sits down to talk to us before they hit the stage this Friday at The Espy



These guys have their hopes set very high... being signed to a major record label and touring the world. But, hey, you’ve got to start somewhere, and The Espy isn’t a bad place to start. Check out their groovy, alternative rock tunes this Friday, September 12th on stage at The Espy when they battle it out in round one of Emergenza Festival Australia. Before they take the stage, Animus sits down to talk their inspirations and aspirations with us.

HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE NAME ANIMUS?
We came up with the name Animus because we wanted a band name that represented us personally, and animus means “Motivation to do something".

WHO PLAYS WHAT IN THE BAND AND WHAT KEEPS YOU INSPIRED TO PLAY MUSIC TOGETHER?
Ash D'Costa on lead vocals, Dylon D'Costa on drums and backing vocals and Sheldon D'Silva on bass and backing vocals. Khishaan Pabakaran (a friend of ours is going to be playing guitar for us for our gig on Friday but is not a full member of the band). What keeps us inspired to play music together is the hope that one day we will get signed to a major label, tour the world sharing our music around the world and make a career out of writing, recording and playing our own music.

IF YOU COULD DESCRIBE YOUR SOUND IN THREE WORDS, WHAT WOULD THEY BE?
Alternative Rock.

WHO ARE SOME OF YOUR MAJOR MUSICAL INFLUENCES?
Michael Jackson, Led Zeppelin, Queen, The Beatles, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Killers, Muse.

WHAT'S THE CRAZIEST THING YOU'VE DONE TOGETHER AS A BAND?
Going on a holiday to America and England.

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO MOST ABOUT YOUR SHOW AT THE ESPY?
Playing our original music for our Family, Friends and Fans for the first time.

WITH OTHER BATTLE OF THE BANDS COMPETITIONS AROUND, WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE EMERGENZA?
We chose Emergenza because we were contacted by someone from Emergenza on our Facebook page and the rewards and opportunities are much greater than any competition we have been in or heard of.
