Last edited: 09.11.17 | Comment? | By










‘The Eighth Note’ is 8 quick Questions with Wellington Musicians.

A chance for us to catch up with people & see what they’re up to, or introduce you to a new musician/band and their music.

Today’s guest’s are Sonya & James from new electropop duo Blue for Noon.

Who are you? Tell us a bit about your music:
We are 2 people making it up as we go. We’re inspired by what we listen to as well as what’s going on around us. There are a lot of really exciting things happening in Wellington which drive us to be more creative.

What have you been working on lately? Any new tracks or albums on the way?
Currently working towards an EP, so we have enough new songs to play a live set!











Where is the best place people can follow you & find your music?
We are on Facebook, Instagram & Bandcamp!

What were the 3 most influential albums to you growing up?
Sonya: I listened to a lot of Russian music so I would have trouble referencing, but I guess there was a lot of electronic music a.k.a TaTu as well as 80’s rock bands that took off back home like Kino.
James: Daft Punk – Discovery, Common – Resurrection, Gorillaz – Demon Days.

Which other Wellington musician (s) would you most like to work with?
We are big fans of Fazerdaze and wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to record a song with her.

What is your favourite Wellington venue to play in?
We haven’t actually played a live set anywhere, but we would be stoked to play a few songs at Caroline!

In your songwriting or composing (or the bands songwriting) how do the compositions and songs take shape?
We are very collaborative in our process, but both have clearly defined roles when writing & recording. We work on progressions together as well as additional lyrical and instrument parts which we occasionally develop separately. At the end of the day we are super considerate of each other and what each of us want out of the project.

Where/when is your next gig?
We are looking at playing an intimate show at a friend’s house in early December, more details to come!
