Godlands on Listen Out and More

Godlands on Listen Out and More
Olivia Gliku

“Oh my god, it’s always a surreal moment when I get put on a lineup of any festival, really. This one especially, I think, because I love all the artists who are on it and I feel pretty proud to be a part of it. I think such a solid lineup so I’m really stoked about it.”

If you’re not around Godlands yet, her appearance at Listen Out ,30-day tour and latest drops are bound to convert you. We caught up with the up-and-coming DJ to talk about the year so far and ahead. First up, we dived into Listen Out. 

“What to expect? You know, I don’t even know at the moment! I never really know, it’s a surprise. A lot of headbangers, a lot of dancing, a lot of high energy sort of stuff. Let’s just say you’re not going to be bored.”

“I met Skrillex years and years ago. That was pretty cool. But, I was like a little little tiny baby. But I’m definitely looking forward to mingling, I suppose… Yeah I’m looking forward to meeting the BROCKHAMPTON boys, especially.”

As a seasoned festival performer, we had to know what Godlands’ best advice for those getting down and dirty at tomorrow’s Listen Out in Brisbane is.

“Stay safe, say hydrated, that’s always important. Have heaps of fun and … come to my set.” she advised.

Only recently did Godlands become Godlands, this project follows up the DJ’s work as Tink, whose name right ring a bell.

“Originally, I was sharing a name with a girl in America, who’s called Tink. She blew up over there, so I was just like, ‘Oh, I keep getting tagged in her stuff”‘ and I”m like, ‘this really awkward'”

“It’s been a very successful name change and I’m really happy [with] where the project is heading.”

With a new name came new music, recently, Godlands released a hype trackShe talked us through how the sounds of animal calls and ambience combined with her unmistakable sound to become Wild. 

“Basically, I was really inspired by Black Panther.”

“…It wasn’t like a super complex process. I just had this idea of creating a soundscape and then like seeing if I could link in a bass drop with it” she explained.

If you missed out on Listen Out, you can catch Godlands “bouncing around everywhere” on a just-announced 30 day tour.
