A Q&A With Rocking Australian Band: The Thundamentals

Smiles don’t lie, friends

By Dinushka Gunasekara | 26th September 2019

Is there anything better than enjoying a rocking band with a beer in hand? The good people at Beer InCider know the answer, which is why they recently hosted an epic tasting festival with the best Aussie acts, including The Thundamentals. We caught up with emcee Jeswon to discuss!

What was your favourite song to write?

Probably ‘I Miss You’. I remember the song coming together super easily, from the initial piano riff to the song concept to the lyrics. It’s a real joy when you write a song that’s seamless in its creation. ‘I Miss You’ was one of those joints.

What are your top three favourite songs to play and why?

‘Sally’, ‘21 Grams’ and ‘Smiles Don’t Lie’. ‘Sally’ is mad fun to play live because it feels like everyone in the crowd lets their hair down and dances, sometimes very badly, like nobody’s watching! ‘21 Grams’ is a banger of a track that people get pumped to and ‘Smiles Don’t Lie’ is great to play live as it’s a heartfelt tune that seems to mean a lot to our fans. It’s beautiful to hear people singing along.

Water, towels, kettle, honey, ginger, whiskey and the rest of my bandmates!

Notorious for turning a random encounter into a three-hour conversation and running across streets to pat a dog, Dinu is a curious girl who loves a good story. Her extensive knowledge of Donald Glover is yet to come to good use and she would do basically anything for a hash brown. Catch her bombarding her friends with articles she thinks they should read or spending way too much time creating the perfect playlist.
