Yes Sir Noceur

With an outer space-esque sound that refuses to be pigeon holed, Gold Coast man band Yes Sir Noceur have taken the music scene by storm.

Made up of two born and bred brothers and a couple of Canadians, the boys have notched up plenty of sold out gigs of late and with a debut EP in the works, there’s no doubt they’re going to make us proud(er).

We chat with the boys about magpie inspiration, $1 cappucinos and what’s coming up for them this year.

You guys have played a few local gigs lately, what do you love about playing on the Coast?

The fact that our own beds are within reach after a show.

What are your thoughts on the Gold Coast’s music scene in general?

It’s an amazingly supportive scene for bands and punters alike, just a lack of local venues providing opportunities to showcase original live music.

How does the Coast inspire your music?

We steal most of our songs hooks from the local birds. Wouldn’t have a single song without our hometown magpies.

Your sound is quite unique, how do you guys describe it?

Psychedelic surf and turf.

Where do you get your inspiration for new tunes?

We take inspiration from life on the coast, new tunes we hear and old tunes we love! It all comes down to who has the mojo flowing at any certain time – you can pick out who in the band has had a good week or day when they come to play with a new riff or melody that they’ve pulled from their happy place and are super pumped to jam it out! Vice versa you can tell who’s had a bastard of a day and the creative juices aren’t flowing.

How and when did the band come together in the beginning?

We started a couple of years back now, Ell picked up Marc while he was playing a few acoustic songs at the local bar and the bromance started from there. Rosco lived with Marc and Harry is Ell’s legit brother so it all fit and stuff.

Most fun gig you’ve played lately?

Hands down Bleach* Festival! It was a ripper set up, rad crew and just all round good times.

What have you got coming up this year?

This year we’ve really taken a step back to have a look at what we’re doing in terms of writing, releasing and touring. In the past we’ve just said yes to any and every gig because we love a beer and love to play to people, now we’re putting more thought into all aspects of what we’re doing and working with a few outside agencies to make sure everything we produce comes out puuurrrrrffffeeeecccttt. We’ve got enough songs to fill a new E.P, we’re just sussing which songs fit the vibe, what needs to be culled or fine tuned and then it’s release time.

Favourite piece of life advice?

Never wear white after Labour Day

You’re not a Gold Coast local if you haven’t…

Been to a Yes Sir Noceur show!

Favourites…

Beach…Nobby’s because we live there

Restaurant… Hooters (for the wings only you dirtbags)

Bar… Hooters- for the wide selection of beers and excellent service they provide

Coffee shop…7/11’s dirty dollar capps

 

13 reasons locals love Currumbin

Fuel Bakehouse
Fuel Bakehouse

It’s the unassuming seaside suburb quietly making itself known for the hippest coffee haunts and an industrial area that has grown into THE place to be, seemingly overnight.

Because somebody has to do it, we’ve rounded up 13 reasons why locals love Currumbin.

Fuel Bakehouse
Serving up some of the absolute best doughnuts you’ll ever have the pleasure of sampling is Currumbin’s Fuel Bakehouse. With varieties like Nutella, Passionfruit and Salted Caramel to name a few, you won’t be sad if you buy at least four of each. Not only doughnuts though, they also do epic pies, cruffins, croissants, all of the baked goodies and coffee too. Perfection the lot of it.
Where: 44 Currumbin Ck Road, Currumbin Waters

The Salt Mill
A tiny little space directly across from the beach, The Salt Mill is perhaps one of the most beloved cafes there is on the Coast. They do exceptional coffee, takeaway sandwiches packed with goodness, Açai bowls (arguably some of the best around), smoothies, fresh juices, smashed avo, raw treats, everything that is delicious in the world. Buy one of everything then stroll across the road and take in that unrivalled ocean view.

Panya Artisan Bakery
The only thing better than the smell of freshly baked bread is the taste of freshly baked bread. Sensory dreams can come true when you visit Panya Artisan Bakery.

Set your alarm for as early as you can handle, it’s well worth the wake up call.

Today, the farm grows all organic produce which you can sample at the I Eight Cake Kitchen via a variety of delicious organic dishes and (more) baked treats.
