Thursday, 5 July 2012


Snakadaktal, a 5 piece from Melbourne with dreamy pop song. They just completed a massive national tour with The Jezabels in some of Australia's finest and largest venues. Snakadaktal were thrilled to announce their new debut single titled 'Dance Bear' which has been getting a lot of praise also they are now happy to announce that they will be hitting the highways of Australia this August for their biggest national headline tour to date! 

You can check our interview with them also their ticket's info below :

Where are you from?
We are from the Eastern Suburbs of the Melbourne town.

Who makes up your band?
Barna: Drums
Jarrah: Bass
Joey: Guitar
Phoebe: Voice, Keys
Sean: Voice, Guitar

What's the story behind your band's name?
It names comes of a rare prehistoric dinosaur. Only few fossils of this beast have ever been discovered. So we decided to name the band after the creature due the amounts of ‘a’s in the word.

How would you describe your music to those who don't know?
I guess our music is a dreamy pop. But it’s hard to say as all our song seem to be different styles of music.

Tell us about your single Dance Bear. What is its main theme,if there's any?
The theme of this song is losing control, like a virus infecting a beautiful space with no control. The meaning behind the song is a personal one.

What would you say is your favorite track of the Ep?
The fifth track ‘skin’ has always been a sneaky favorite. It’s always very fulfilling to play well.

Are there any particular artists that influence this new album?
This is always a hard question for us, as we all listen and are influence to/by different artist. I guess the main ones we have in common and have affected our news song, would be ‘Youth lagoon and Chairlift’.

You are going to have a tour soon! How do you feel? 
Incredibly excited. Our live show is one of, if not the most important part of our music. We love the playing shows, meeting new people, discovering new places and been very silly at the appropriate times.


If you could play anywhere in the world, where would it be?
If we could play anywhere in the world.. it would have to be on top of Uluru.

Tell us 5 random facts about your band

Phoebe a magician, 
Jarrah gets more women then a ladies rest room.
Joeys feet are tiny which helps with being a little trickster at soccer,
Barna can speak Hungarian and cant run up hills. 
Sean is spelt differently to how it sounds.

What or who would you like to be reincarnated as?
A Gorilla, who’s as smart as Steven Hawkins.
