AUSTRALIAN INDIE-POP TRIO ‘GERMEIN’ ARE BACK IN THE UK ON TOUR AND WE CAUGHT UP WITH THEM TO SEE HOW ISLE OF WIGHT FEST WENT, WHAT ELSE IS TO COME AND DONT FORGET YOU CATCH THEM AT CORNBURY FESTIVAL. ITS ONE NOT TO BE MISSED IF YOU ASK ME.

Hey Germein, how have you been?
We’ve been great thanks! Glad to be back in the UK

Give the readers who may not know of you a little about you as a band.
We are in indie pop sibling band from Australia. I (Georgia) play guitar & keys, Ella plays bass & electric cello, Clara plays drums – and we all sing. We often get compared to HAIM, Tegan & Sara, and The Corrs.

You released your latest single, tell us more about the inspiration about the song and the making process? 
Clara went into a music shop to buy drumsticks, and the guy behind the desk asked her if she was buying them for her boyfriend. I (Georgia) remember our first soundcheck on a national tour when it was as if we’d surprised the sound guy when we started playing, like he expected us to be bad. At the end of the show he said to us that we were actually pretty good for girls. We wanted this song to tackle the stereotypes of women in the music industry, and give a voice to anyone who might be going through a similar experience. It’s about giving girls an equal playing field, and not discriminating based on gender. We are proud to have written, recorded, & produced this track entirely ourselves in our home studio – which makes it even more special for us.

You also filmed a music video to go alongside the single, tell us about the creative process of the making of the video. 
We wanted the video to clearly tell the story behind each of the verses in the song, and so filmed it on a number of different locations – including a music shop, a night club, and a sports field. We filmed it in our hometown of South Australia, directed by our good friends at Epik Films in the Sunshine Coast. The video starts with Georgia buying a guitar from the music shop, then takes viewers to night club scene where we go out with our friends, and finishes with us all in the grandstand of our local football club where we hit home the final message of the tune. Because the lyrics are particularly important in this song, we wanted them to get across visually as best we could through the video. We’re so proud of how it turned all out.

5th year at Isle of Wight this year, how excited were  you and  tell us more about your experience.
We had the best time at Isle of Wight this year – we can’t explain how good it was to be back. There’s something so special about UK audiences, everyone is so fun, sweet & always up for a good time.

Who did you love to see at IOW. 
We especially loved seeing MUSE, Tom Grennan, & The Kooks.

If you could collaborate with a band or artist playing the fest, who would it be and why?
We would love to collab with Lewis Capaldi.

Can we expect a new Album or EP this year and if so, can you give us a teaser of what to expect from that?
After this tour, we’ll head back to Australia to finish off some of our new songs, and look forward to sharing them with you all real soon – stay tuned!

Will we see any collaborations this year? 
We’ve got a bunch more sister session collabs planned – a project we created during COVID to connect with other artists from around the world. The artist chooses a cover song and we perform a unique acoustic version of it together.

Where else can we see you play live? 
We’ll be heading to Manchester for an acoustic gig on Sunday 3rd July, hope to see you there!
