Energetic South Australian indie pop-rock act, Mum Thinks Blue continue to make waves since forming in early 2019.

Now regulars on Adelaide's live scene, the six-piece band have quickly earned a reputation as a solid live group evidenced by their slew of support gigs: Demon Days, Horror My Friend and Polish Club.

After selling out their recent single launch show at Lion Arts Factory for newest release 'Dreaming', Mum Thinks Blue is now gearing up for another local show this Sunday (22 November), this time as part of The Journey series, which is the opening ceremony for each episode of Parks and Rockreation – part of the GO LIVE programme presented by Umbrella Festival.

The Journey showcases past Music SA students and the journey they've taken since undergoing their Certificate at Music SA. Joining Mum Thinks Blue is Pelvis, Taylor Pfeiffer and Mums Favourite.

If you're interested in studying with Music SA they offer courses for both school students and adult learners. Check out their 2021 courses.

Who is Mum Thinks Blue? We are a six-piece indie pop band made up of Austin (vocals, guitar), Brodie (lead guitar), Joe (bass), Hannah (sax), Josh (drums), and Joaquin (keys). We started mid last year and have released four singles to date.

We sound like... Our sound comes from each member's different musical background combined to make one, cohesive sound.

Our first gig was... On 14 June, 2019, at the Golden Wattle with The Max Headroom and Experiment One.

When did you settle on the group's name? The name Mum Thinks Blue came about when Hannah was discussing what we should be called with her parents.

Her mum was sold on just 'blue' but then Roy (Hannah's Dad) said: What about 'Mum Thinks Blue'?", and we agreed upon it.

In the studio we usually... Come up with new ideas and have fun writing music.

If we could tour with anyone... We would love to tour with Lime Cordiale because we really enjoy their music, but also they're one of our biggest influences.

Social media... Gives us the privilege to connect with our audience in an interactive and fun way.

My favourite app at the moment is... Instagram, 'cause it's our main platform for sharing gigs and promoting our music.

Our most embarrassing moment to date was... As a band there hasn't been anything that really sticks out too bad, but technical difficulties occur pretty frequently and it can get panicky and pretty awkward sometimes.

If you'll have us on your bill, all we ask is that our rider contains... Half decent beers and a decent amount of them.

The most scary scenario we've found ourselves in, was... We played a gig at Jive last year where one very keen audience member was very certain about getting to the drum kit on stage.

What celebrity/ famous person would you love to be spokesperson of the band? Samuel L. Jackson. Iconic.

If you had to live in a city abroad, where would you choose and why? Probably New York or Los Angeles; love the hustle and bustle of New York, but also the beaches of Los Angeles.

Three people you'd invite around for a dinner party? Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix and Michael Hutchence; because their music has influenced all of us.

If we were coming over to your place, what would you cook us? A nice platter of sushi.

No matter the expense, send us a case of... Beer and lots of its.

The last time we saw the inside of a gym was... Most of us keep up with our fitness be that in the gym, yoga or through various different sports that we enjoy.

What's the one chore you dislike most? Cleaning up. We're good at making a mess, but hate cleaning it up.

Do you have any phobias... please explain? Awkward encounters. Always painful for everyone involved.

Would you ever partake in a reality show? 'The Bake Off' TV show. We have baked a few dodgy-looking cakes in our time, so it could be pretty funny to do it on television.

If you could prank any of your friends, who's your target, and how are you bringing them down? Don't bring Stacey. Step 1: Locate Stacey. Step 2: Bring Stacey along. Step 3: Anarchy.

Make sure you get along early to Parks and Rockreation on 22 November (from 2.30pm) at City Skate Park (Park 15) in Adelaide to check out The Journey acts before headliners Heaps Good Friends round out the entertainment.
