Aces and Eights Q&A

Your name: 
Cameron Geercke (drums).

Where are you from?
We are based in Sydney, Australia

Name of band: 
Aces and Eights.

Who else is in your band?
We have Chrissy as our vocalist, Dre and Steve on guitars, and Andy on bass.

How would you describe yourselves?
Coming from a wide range of musical backgrounds we have managed to find a musical middle ground towards the heavier end of the pop punk genre.

Who are your main influences musically?
Chrissy's latest tattoo goes to show one of our main influences is A Day To Remember. Other influences include Paramore and Halestorm, although each individual band member brings influence from their own personal musical experiences and this could range from the likes of Fleetwood Mac to artists such as Flume.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
It would be quicker to list the things we hope not to achieve. Our goal in this band is to constantly compete and do better than we have previously done. Of course we would love to be the next biggest thing and international superstars, however I have a more important goal in mind when I pick up a guitar to start writing a new song. When we were young we all heard songs that changed our lives and as we are older and realize the world isn't all rainbows and flying around on the backs of magical unicorns, we want to provide some sort of distraction through entertainment and allow people to just enjoy themselves for a while. We only sing about experiences we've been through and hopefully people can relate to these ideas.

What has been the highlight of your music career and why?
The highlight of our music career has been the incredible response we have had to our song Feel That Way. We were overwhelmed with the feedback we got and where we were getting it from! Places in Europe and America were not only listening but recommending other listen to it. Still boggles my mind that a song written and recorded in Dre's living room, independent of anyone external to the band has already reached so many people. 

If you had to choose just one of your songs to represent you music, what would it be and why?
Feel that Way takes the cake on this one! This song has a taste of all the genres you are likely encounter through our up and coming EP, from a post chorus breakdown to flowing melodies through the outro its a true representation of the music we love to listen to.

Where can we listen to it?
