Ipswich rockers start their climb to the top
AFTER more than two years of writing, recording and perfecting their music three talented Ipswich musicians are ready to release their first EP.
Matthew Reisinger, Michael Trapp and Clayton Mullins from pop rock outfit Until Home will perform live at Studio 188 to launch their single Every Summer alongside support acts Another Language and Taylor Wilton.
Formed in mid-2013 Until Home originally began as an acoustic duo comprising of Reisinger and Trapp.
The boys had been writing and playing music together since their early teens but upon collaborating with fellow Westside Christian College graduate Clayton Mullins, Until Home's sound took a new direction.
"We all live in Ipswich and Matt and I have been friends and played music together since before we were teenagers," Trapp said.
"We collaborated with Clay who has a really different approach. Our styles all mix and offer something really unique.
"I think this EP honours our roots. A lot of the songs on there are ones we wrote years ago but they all went through quite a big change in the studio."
Trapp said the band's influences included Imagine Dragons, Coldplay and The Fray, which could be heard on the five-track EP titled Optimistic.
"We've had people describe our sound as anthemic pop rock," he said.
"After a year of writing and a year of gigging we've got that experience under our belt and we've made our mistakes.
"To have a product now we're really proud of is probably the highlight of our careers so far."
Trapp said the three friends, who all work together full time in disability care, hoped to release the EP by the start of May.
"We all work at the same place and we all love our job," Trapp said.
"Ultimately the goal is to do music as a career and see where it takes us."
Until Home will perform at Studio 188, 188 Brisbane St, Ipswich on Friday, April 8 from 8pm-10pm.
Tickets cost $12 online and $14 at the door.
