Triple J (Australian radio station) have just released a viral video ad for their Hottest 100 vote, featuring a number of well know stars from popular music. As well as Kevin Parker (Tame Impala), Mark Ronson, Wolf Alice and Yannis (Foals), you can spot Jonathan and Alex playing police officers/security guards around the 2 minute mark!! They must have filmed their bit when they were over in Australia for Splendour in the Grass during the summer. Here’s the ad:
Jonathan has a chat with Australian news paper/web site, The Sydney Morning Herald, about how he got into music, among other things.
“We had this really shitty music software demo. You couldn’t even save what you were working on,” Higgs recalls, of a childhood spent growing up in the country outside Brampton. “So I’d just record it onto tape, close the program and then it was gone forever. I had all these endless tapes, I think I’ve still got them somewhere.”
