Interview: The Smith Street Band [April 2015]

By Ben Tipple

Melbourne, Australia’s The Smith Street Band have always proved difficult to classify. With gruff punk undertones and a folk inspired penchant for story-telling, their increasingly unique sound has seen them traverse the globe in recent months, cementing them as stalwarts on the European festival circuit.

As they prepared to play at London’s Tufnell Park Dome, we caught up with vocalist and guitarist Wil Wagner in the back of their van to discuss life on the road and immigration focused politics.
