Glass Ocean hit the road with the Wallapalooza crew, covering off the SE corner of Queensland (yes, we claim Byron as our own). We had a chat to Tobias Atkins (vocal + guitar) from the Sydney-based band who’ve only been performing together for a year.

What’s the best thing about events like Wallapalooza?
It brings together bands that otherwise wouldn’t play in the same room. Its an eclectic mix of genres and you get two stages.
You can take one other band on the Wallapalooza lineup on a world tour?
These Four Walls, They have an epic vocalist!
What’s one thing you’d like on your rider that you might be embarrassed to ask for?
A nice glass of red…
What do you think about the GC music scene?
I think the Gold Coast turned up for our show in January at Shark Bar with HELM. I’m sure the same vibes will find their way to Wallapalooza.
What’s one Australian band our readers should check out immediately?
Plini. Just go do it. NOW. No rational explanation needed, thank me later.
If the story of your band was a movie, which would it be?
Con-Air. Because I want it to be.
What’s one thing our readers would be surprised to know?
Nicolas Pettersen of Northlane writes the drums for Glass Ocean, and has a massive input into the songwriting.
Glass Ocean will be at Lallapalooza’s Brisbane, Byron and Gold Coast legs.
