All You Gotta Do by Split Seconds
Bed Down by Split Seconds
Initially formed as an outlet for well-known Perth songsmith Sean Pollard (New Rules For Boats) to ply his solo tunes, Split Seconds have solidified into one of the city’s most talked about bands, who although being but a year old, have already chalked up supports with a veritable who’s who of indie rock heavy hitters including Cloud Control, Wagons, Little Red, Jebediah, The Panics, Owl Eyes and Dan Kelly, as well as coveted slots at the Southbound, Homebake, Pyramid Rock and In The Pines festivals.
The band’s early success has been no-doubt aided by the experienced cast of all-singing and all-instrument swapping Perth musicians that bring Pollard’s songs to life with their spacious and understated instrumentation. Pollard first began penning songs under the Split Seconds moniker whilst working a less-than salubrious job in London mental hospital The Priory. Buoyed by a steady supply of Go Betweens, Triffids, Ned Collette and Augie March records, the songwriter set about exploring a nostalgia for home – the bittersweet, romantic notions known so well to Australians living abroad. As hinted at by jangly first single and local radio favourite Paperboy, Pollard has the ability to write timeless and truly affecting Australian pop songs of the highest order.
Split Seconds’ self titled debut EP was released in March 2011, was tracked at Cazfair Studios in Perth with producers Steve Bond (The Panics, Snowman, The Bank Holidays) and mixed in London with respected Australian producer Aaron Cupples, best known for his work The Drones and Dan Kelly. It contained radio favourites “Bed Down” and “What a Week”
This was followed by the All You Gotta Do single in October 2011
Stay tuned for the release of the bands debut album in July 2012.
