Offset Vision Says Loads on Namesake, Music, and Making a Difference!

Pop punk hardcore band OFFSET VISION have gone on to release a single along with an EP, and have been busy writing and recording for their follow-up EP. Whilst touring isn't on the table, local showcases will take places if possible, with the band just wanting to get out there and make a difference. See what else the band had to say about themselves and what's next!

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

It started out with just Maki and myself (James) writing a few songs in our bedrooms. It wasn’t until after the first EP ‘It’s All I Taste’ was released that a full band was formed to play live shows; practicing with a few different people casually until eventually recruiting close friends Callum and Dylan.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

The band’s name came because I have heterochromia (2 different colored eyes) and was once asked if my vision was different in each eye. It’s not; but we tell people it is, just to see if they’ll believe it (they do).

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We are based out of Launceston, in Australia. It’s not a very big city, but the music scene is quite active. A lot of people come to see local bands weekly. Indie rock and acoustic stuff is much more popular though, so it’s hard to book shows as a heavier band.

4. How would you describe your style?

Our style is basically a blend of pop punk and hardcore. We have a lot of very different influences and I think our music reflects that.

5.  What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We’ve released a single and a 3 song EP this year. People can expect a lot of energy when they hear our music; with tuned down, distorted guitars and aggressive vocals being our main features.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Yes! We are currently writing and recording a second EP, which is being produced over in Germany. We are aiming for a mid to late March 2021 release. Expect it to be much more diverse than our past work.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Due to COVID restrictions, unfortunately touring isn’t in the foreseeable future. Local shows will continue to be played though, despite the limited number of people allowed in venues.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

We want to make a difference, and not just be another mediocre band that barely scrapes by for a few years. We are constantly working on our skills and improving our songwriting, and I think our next EP will show that. Eventually, when it’s safe, we want to be able to travel around the country and play more shows for more people.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can hear us on streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music (and heaps more). All of our music is free to download, and always will be. We are currently selling t-shirts at shows to raise money for our upcoming release, and are in the process of setting up an online store, so people from around the world have the option of buying them!

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

If they like what they hear; we hope they remember our name so that they can search us up again.
