Fun, Catchy and Young. Set In Motion is an Australian band that recently hit the HOT FM charts. This young and quirky group comprises of Callum, Harrison and Harry.
Set In Motion's music mainly consists of upbeat, dancey and pop tracks that will keep you dancing for days! It's amazing how much energy these three boys have. It's contagious! We had the opportunity to catch up with Callum from this Sydney based band.
Tell us a little bit about "Set In Motion" and what you boys are about?
We're a 3 piece pop rock band from Australia :) we all grew up together and have been playing music for ages.
You recently released "Summer Love", tell us about this track and what inspired it?
We recorded this track here in Sydney last summer, every morning we were going to the beach swimming before the studio and hanging out with friends. That's why I think it has such a natural summer feel. Some days we would arrive at the studio in a towel haha. It is inspired by just having that summer fling you know.
Australia has one of the best music scenes in the world, what are some challenges you've faced?
Amongst teen bands, Australia has a prominently punk scene. I think that one challenge we've faced is doing something a little different and not being recognised in the scene because of it.
Who are your musical influences?
Bruno Mars is a huge influence. We all love his new album :)
If you could collaborate with anyone in today's industry, who would you pick?
I think to write a song with someone like Paul McCartney would be super crazy. That would be a dream for us.
What are your biggest goals for "Set In Motion"
We're just taking at one day at a time at the moment. I think our first goal is to do a big tour :)
Apart from music, do you have other hobbies?
Harry really loves basketball and Harrison likes to sit around playing with his guitar pedals creating sounds. I like to make music at home on my computer, that's what I'm doing literally 70% of my day.
Who would you say is the geekiest member in the band?
No question it is Harry. He is a goofball haha.
Who gets all the ladies?
Again it's Harry haha :) girls must dig that vibe.
Every band has a prankster, what about "Set In Motion"?
I think that I am, a rubber spider or snake will get Harrison EVERY time.
For the sake of your female fans I have to throw this one in: Describe your ideal girl?
You gotta be lighthearted. Nothing too serious :)
Can fans expect an EP release?
Definitely. We've written a bunch of songs but we're going to keep writing until we have the perfect ones :)
Lastly, a message for Singaporean fans/ new Singaporean fans?
Thankyou so much for the support on the Hot 30 the past few weeks. The support has been overwhelming. We're working really hard to get the opportunity to come over soon!
