Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! with Ben Britton to launch STRANGERS ‘Mirrorland’.

Posted on Updated on

Hot & Delicious Rocks The Planet! with Ben Britton, lead singer of Strangers.

DOWNLOAD the PODCAST – #137 Ben Britton (STRANGERS launch ‘Mirrorland’).

Strangers lead singer Ben Britton & I met at the world’s largest music, film and interactive conference, South By South West (SXSW) back in 2013 when his kick-ass Australian heavy rock band Strangers were selected to play the conference and was I immediately blown away by their explosive live set in the basement at The Aussie BBQ Australian showcase event in Austin (Texas).

The Aussie BBQ SXSW boasted an A-grade line-up of the likes Vance Joy, Hiatus Kaiyote, Flume, Emma Louse, Seth Sentry, 360, Dune Rats, Clairy Browne & the Bangin’ Rackettes, Alpine, Jackson Firebird, San Cisco, The Rubens, Jack Carty, Gold Fields, The Beards, The Falls & shit-tons more… 37 amazing Australian bands and artists playing 3 stages in one venue across 13 hours in Texas!!!! Blew my mind!

And for those who haven’t been before, the most wonderful thing about touring the USA with Sounds Australia and all the Aussie bands performing every year at SXSW is that you spend time with your music industry peeps that you know from back home whom you haven’t seen for ages, make a whole swag of new music biz friends and soak up the most beautiful and generous sense of community that Austin and SXSW have on offer. Benny and I kept bumping into each other at different bars and live music showcases around Austin, became buddies that week and I was quite struck by what a friendly, chatty and genuine dude he is.

Flash forward 4 years and I am super excited to feature Strangers launch of their 2nd album ‘Mirrorland’ on Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! Benny and I catch-up to discuss just what it’s like for Australian artists/bands looking to take on SXSW, the differences between the Melbourne and Sydney music scenes, He generously shares his experiences battling anxiety and mental health, which have come to be a massive learning experience and part of the ‘Mirrorland’ album and yep, I’ll even give you an exclusive sneak peek of 3 tracks from the new album by just simply downloading the podcast.

Over the next 2 weeks this Sydney born, Melbourne based 4-piece are carving out their next steps with 2 explosive ‘Mirrorland’ album launch shows in Melbourne (Saturday Just 1st – The Evelyn Hotel) and Sydney (Friday July 14th – The Chippo Hotel).

Last time I saw them play in Texas, Benny was on some dude’s shoulders in the crowd singing mid-set, the guitarist brought his axe out into the crowd too and then I think Mr. Britton capped it all off by stage-diving back ONTO the stage and tackling the drummer and drum-kit in one fell swoop… Now THAT’s what I’m talkin’ ‘bout!

Download this shit and come see the show with me in Sydney! #GetSome #RocknRoll 🤘🏼✨🎸

Now I’m drinking just to feel something, in a twisted way I guess you win…
 
Blessed to have so many wonderfully, talented friends, I loved having talented Australian/English singer songwriter Tanya Batt AKA BATTS Music back on the Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! podcast.
 
We had so much to talk about that this episode is a double banger with not one, but two podcasts! One this week, one next!
 
 
Over a couple of cheeky Jameson Irish Whiskeys, in Part 1 this week we discuss her beautiful new single, ‘Kiki’, platonic friendships with the opposite sex, falling in love, heart-break, break-ups and wondering if the person you have broken up with is thinking about you, Bon Iver at the Sydney Opera House, recording in New York and Iceland,how BATTS Music and Tanya’s career is starting to take off in both Australia and the UK, nudie runs & living at Meredith Music Festival, Braille Face, meeting Nile Rogers & Chic and Charles Bradley at Golden Plains, our respective recent journeys in the past few months to the UK and USA, working with Katy Perry, a mini USA announcement of my own and so much more!
 
 
We chat about our favourite TV shows including Peaky Blinders, Suits and Game Of Thrones with English actress, Emilia Clarke, dancing with Ellen DeGeneres and The Graham Norton Show, constantly evolving as an individual in your career by exploring yourself, doing what you love and constantly reassessing where you’re at, gun reform in the USA, #LoveIsLove and the Orlando Pulse Nightclub shooting, having a gun pointed at my head by the police while I was in the USA, syncing music, artistic credit & copyright and the beautiful time-lapse video that I shot on the Savannah River in Augusta, Georgia syncing BATT’s beautiful new single ‘Kiki’.
 
I love my podcast hangs with this lady as she is just a little ray of sunshine and one of those wonderful friends who is a constant inspiration to myself and others with all the hard yards that she is putting in to bring her dreams into reality.
 
Destined for greatness! Oh wait… she’s already great, mate! 🌟
 
Let’s get amongst it!
