It's My Kind of Interview - Tim Nelson (Cub Scouts)

An Interview With...
Tim Nelson of CUB SCOUTS

It's the end of the year, so I've got to ask - what's been your favourite moment of 2012?

Tim: I think releasing our debut EP was my favourite moment!

The 'Told You So' EP is a lot of fun, one of the best released all year. But I'm ready for a whole lot more Cub Scouts... are you hard at work on an LP and when can we expect to hear new music from you?

Tim: We've been working on lots of new music all year, so you'll definitely be hearing some new music soon!

We had the pleasure of seeing you live at Alhambra as part of your 'Told You So' tour earlier in December. What was it like performing in front of the hometown crowd?

Tim: It was so much fun - Brisbane crowds are pretty rowdy and funny.

You must be a fan of Phebe Starr, you know, having her support your tour and all. What do you think a collaboration between Cub Scouts and Phebe Starr would sound like?

Tim: I reckon it would sounds pretty cool, Phebe's voice is amazing.

We've been running a big end of year countdown on the blog, so I'd love to hear from you what your favourite songs and albums have been this year.

Favourite albums:
Frank Ocean - Channel Orange
Ball Park Music - Museum
Lana Del Rey - Born To Die
Miike Snow - Happy To You
Tame Impala - Lonerism
Chairlift - Something
Flume - Flume
Two Door Cinema Club - Beacon

Favourite Songs:
Lana Del Rey - Summertime Sadness
Frank Ocean - Super Rich Kids
San Cisco - Beach
Flume - Insane
Reptar - Stuck In My Id
Tigertown - All We Stand On
Van She - Idea of Happiness
Ball Park Music - Coming Down

Lana Del Rey: Cub Scouts approve. They very approve.

College radio in the USA is literally loving the shit out of you right now. Are you ready to get on over there and start doing shows? What's to come in 2013 from Cub Scouts?

Tim: Yeah it's pretty incredible! We would love to go to the US, I guess we'll see how 2013 pans out with our next release and everything!

Out of the five of you, who's most likely to have a Britney Spears style meltdown and why?

Tim: Zoe. She's always around boys so she doesn't know what girls are supposed to wear which is confusing for her. She'll probably end up shaving her head before the end of 2013.

Hair today...

Gone tomorrow!

Hope you guys have an awesome 2013!

Tim: Have a great break!
