INTERVIEW: chatting with Brisbane prog marauders He Danced Ivy


Having spent the past few years sharpening their musical hooks, Brisbane alt-rockers He Danced Ivy have continually rewritten the book on genre and convention. Channeling the offbeat charm of Twelve Foot Ninja with the emphatic pizzazz of a grunge train bound straight for punk-rock paradise, the wildly infectious quartet have found themselves supporting the likes of Polyphia, Circa Survive, Dead Letter Circus, Mammal and more while carving up experimental tunes, including their most recent single Toothcutter.

Now continuing into the latter half of 2019 in their trademark barrelling fashion, He Danced Ivy will be bringing some madcap glee to their hometown tonight, launching their brand new track at the Black Bear Lodge in Brisbane after a particularly festive showing in Melbourne last week. But just as they gear up to delight their home crowd, what better time to have a chat with the He Danced Ivy gents, and during the week Tiana grabbed rollicking frontman David Cheney to chat growth, writing and cutting their teeth in the Aussie rock world. Full audio interview below.

HE DANCED IVY WILL BE LAUNCHING THEIR BRAND NEW SONIC BABY 'TOOTHCUTTER' TONIGHT IN BRISBANE AT THE BLACK BEAR LODGE, BEFORE THEY HEAD OFF TO NEWCASTLE THIS SUNDAY.
