Sesh Lamb are a new Melbourne based band who have just put out their first song on Triple J’s Unearthed.
Tomatrax came out from hibernation briefly to ask the band a few questions.
How did the band form?
We met while studying music at high school. From there we started playing gigs around Melbourne with bands like The Valiants and Tudor Club, and now, a year later, we have released our first single!
Where did the name Sesh Lamb come from?
We went through a lot of names trying to come up with something but couldn’t get anywhere. At our first gig the band we were supporting asked us our name. Henry suggested the name ‘Sesh Lamb’ temporarily, but It stuck!
You’ve just released a track on Triple J’s Unearthed page, has this had an impact on your music’s exposure?
Yes! We ended up reaching #5 on the Unearthed charts and a couple of weeks ago we were played on the independent radio station 3DMR!
What made you pick ‘Not in your nature’ as your first offering?
Out of all our songs we decided to release ‘Not in your Nature’ because we felt like it was the song that audiences liked best when we played it live, so we thought we may as well head into the studio and record it.
