THE moment the members of Looseleaf IV started jamming at St Philip’s Christian College, they instantly knew they have uncovered something special.
“We were messing around in a morning role call and we just started playing around with that, and that was how Worth It came about,” Looseleaf IV vocalist Hamish Pickering said.
“It felt like it was too easy to try and make music together and we’d known each other for ages and knew our skills and our strengths.”
From there the groove-rock five-piece of Pickering, Kye Cherry (drums), Nathan Connett (guitar), James Connett (bass) and Gabe Stove (keys) have quickly become one of most popular all-ages bands in Newcastle.
On Friday Looseleaf IV will release their latest single Weird Weekend, inspired by INXS and 1975. The track will feature on the band’s forthcoming debut EP, which was recorded in Cherry’s home studio.
“We’ve been developing it over the past few months and it ended up being the song that sounds the best and the one that showcases our sound the best.”
Looseleaf IV will headline an all-ages show at The Dungeon in Adamstown on April 21 that also features Milky Thred, Jacob, Just Breathe and Surf Trash.
