Sydney artist Le Pie makes pop music that is as vulnerable and dark, as it is uplifting and gorgeous. Her music has been described as a cross between grunge and 1950’s girl groups. It’s also been described as “exceptional”. Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound? My music has been described as a cross between grunge and 1950’s girl groups. I developed my sound by immersing myself in all sorts of music, playing different instruments in all sorts of bands then write write writing until my own sound and style naturally came through. What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music? #lyf What can punters expect from a Le Pie live show? A wall of sound. What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from? ‘Here, have another glass of champagne’ - Mum What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying? I’m completely obsessed with 'Endless Drain’ by Major Leagues at the moment, it’s a jump around the lounge room kinda track. What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry? Knuckles White Dry by Gang of Youths. I haven’t spent a lot of time following this band but this track came on the radio a few weeks ago and it captivated me right from the first line, so much raw emotion, I was almost in tears by the end of it. You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?’ Better The Devil You Know’ Kylie Minogue, everybody wants to party with Kylie! What was the last local gig you went to? How was it? Brighton Up bar with You Beauty, Donny Benet, SPOD, Jack Ladder and Geoffrey O'Connor. How do you think it was!?!? Tell us about the bands or people in the Sydney music community that inspire you. There is a really strong female presence in the Sydney music scene right now with the likes of Bloods, Julia Why, Black Zeros. I would like to see someone put on a festival with an all female line up. Wink wink. What are your plans for the rest of 2015? Making music, making out.
