Five Coffees recently released their debut album, A Little Revolting. Playing together for seven years, the band  have grown their sound and created an album with heavy hip hip, experimental synths and fresh production. We caught up with them to find out more.

Five Coffees! Tell us about how you guys all came together. 

Our trumpet player Guy had a gig booked but he didn’t have a band! We were playing our first show at the Sandringham Hotel in Newtown and he got me to help him find musicians. We never stopped jamming since then.

What kind of work went into A Little Revolting?

We had a whole bunch of songs that we have been performing and people have been asking where they can get the music! After gathering our best songs we felt ready to lay it down on record. The feedback from the album has already been overwhelmingly positive.

What’s the best thing about being in a band like Five Coffees?

People love dancing at our shows and it is awesome to see everyone having such a good time when we play live. We are such a big band with horns, vocals and full rhythm section so people really enjoy it. We are the opposite of the new age duos and solo artists. We’re hopefully of a few festival slots and touring shows soon.

Any advice would you give others in the music industry?

If you write good music, people will come! We have been playing for years on the strength of the material we have written. Keep having fun!
