Introducing Kurilpa Reach and their vibey, roots and reggae-fuelled debut EP, Fool's Fall

They're launching it with a huge show at The Zoo on December 6.

Brisvegas based five-piece Kurilpa Reach have capped off a busy 2018 with the recent release of their debut EP, Fool's Fall, featuring popular recent singles Rat Race and Bilson. The six-track EP as a whole is a diverse and engaging collection of tracks spanning across the dub/psych/reggae/roots/rock universe, born from five good mates who love a good jam.

You can have a listen below, along with learning a little more about the group courtesy of a few questions with drummer Vicente:

Tell us about yourselves?

We’re a group of five fellas who got together purely to play music and somehow became best friends. That’s sort of how the music goes too, we all have our own flavours and styles but when we get together it culminates into a really well balanced groove.

What kinda tunes we talkin’?

It’s hard to say because they’re all sort of different. Generally we are all about the dubby rhythms, big delays, whacky guitars and a sax filled with passion. Occasionally we chuck in the bongos or pick up an acoustic but it stays pretty high energy most of the time.

Production/writing process:

Apart from someone coming in with a riff or some chords with lyrics, we always write the songs with the five of us in the room. It can get pretty crazy with a lot of ideas going on at once but it’s a really free and experimental process. It also helps having our producer Cody McWaters who takes control of us, whips us in line and makes it sound like magic.

Can you tell us about your new EP, Fool’s Fall?

We wrote Fool’s Fall over a long period and it became a selection of snapshots into emotions and situations we had been dealing with throughout that time. We wanted to make something that represented us and our sound well and in doing that created something that represented more personal and emotional developments.

Any shows coming up?

Yeah, we have our launch show at The Zoo on December 6th which is going to be awesome. We’re really excited to finally share it with everyone in the flesh and coinciding with our last show of the year it is going to be a huge one. We’ve got our mates The Baby Breaks and Perve Endings opening up the show so it will be mind melting from the get go.

What’s the rest of the year have in store?

After the EP launch we’re all going to have a bit of a holiday. Next year is looking to be a bit crazier than 2018 so we’re just going to relax, write some new music and start preparing.

Where can we hear more of your music?

All our music is up on Spotify, iTunes and the usual places. There’s also a video clip for Rat Race, which we did recently for those that want visual accompaniment. If that’s not enough we always love to mix it up at ours gigs so there’s always a few more musical surprises there.
