To help you curate your ultimate Supanova Spotify playlist, we caught up with a few Supa-Stars in Melbourne and Gold Coast to find out who their favourite artists are.
“Simple Song is my favourite song; it’s simple and it’s lovely. They have such a wonderful, calming and happy tone. I love listening to them when I’m stressed, when I’m sad, when I’m happy.”
The Police & The Beatles
“The band that I probably loved most in my teenage years that has carried on throughout the years was The Police. But my formative band, when I was a kid, because my mum and dad loved them, The Beatles. If I had to choose it would be tough, but it would be The Beatles.”
“They were so influential on me when I was growing up. I used to listen to them all the time in my room. I got to see them in 1979 and it had a huge effect on my life.”
Overwatch star Lucie Pohl said she loves David Hasselhoff during her panel on the Gold Coast, while also treating Supanova TV to a quick verse of his song Looking for Freedom.
“Currently, Foo Fighters – Dave Grohl, I just love him.”
“[Music] changed my life as a kid. I started acting when I was really young and I was on this TV show that shot really far away from my home. I was basically the only kid on the show and I was surrounded by a bunch of adults, which was great, but they didn’t want to hang out with me all the time, so I started listening to blink-182. I would go to the CD store and just buy every blink CD and they kind of became my friends.”
“I’m a bit mad for them.”
Nine Inch Nails
“Trent Reznor is a genius. He’s a god.”
“I grew up listening to the Birthday Party and I just followed him with The Bad Seeds and all his stuff since. I think he’s a true poet and a great musician.”
