As Shakafest is nearing we had a chat to Gold Coast band Kazual Tea. Since forming at the start of the year, the band has breezed into the Gold Coast scene already supporting bands like Psychedelic Porn Crumpets. Playing the Shark Bar stage inside will see them play alongside Dear Seattle, Pandamic & more. Its only up from here for these guys and we are expecting big things!
So how did you guys get together?
The four of us (Miles, Tama, Antony and Nathan) went to the same school together and have always been going to gigs an enjoyed the same music and after a few different drummers at the start of the year we met Taz and its been sweet since then.
Give us your best definition of ‘Kazual Tea’… ?
Kazual Tea is an invitation
Where do you guys draw your influences from?
Pink Floyd, The Growlers, Jefferson Airplane and whatever else we've been listening to over the years
So since forming in early 2017 you guys have played some huge shows already, you’ve supported Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, Sun Sap and have landed yourself on the Shakafest line up on the Shark Bar Stage with Dear Seattle, Pandamic and more…How does it feel having this all happened so quickly?
It's kind of scary but also awesome, we're stoked and thankful to the people who've helped us out so far, we've had nothing but fun shows recently and super keen for it to keep rollin!
Who are you most excited to play with?
Keen to be sharing the stage again with our gal pals VOIID.
Who are you most excited to see?
Trapdoor, VOIID, Radolescent, Dz deathrays and obviously Grinspoon!
So we’ve heard the demo track on bandcamp, but when are you guys heading into the studio?
When we're not Broke Kids...haha
Do you have something exciting up your sleeves to share with us ;)?

As you guys are relatively new to the scene... we want to know a bit about you guys…
