As you may or may not know Sherlock's Daughter has made it through as finalists for the Qantas Spirit of Youth Awards! The other finalists for music are Songs and Oh Mercy, both of whom we love...
Also to add to our excitement we've just found out we've been nominated for SMAC!
In light of this we want to say a quick but big Thank You! to anyone who has supported us.
We've had a pretty fun time this year playing shows and releasing our EP, and being nominated for two pretty incredible awards is really just quite fantastic!
You can vote for us (if you like) for the SMAC awards here.
We are currently in NYC - spending most of our nights out and not climatising to the difference in time at all. It's 14 hours different from Sydney time, so without really meaning to we've pretty much just kept with our regular body clocks' times to stay awake through the night and sleep... sometimes.

LA for 5 hour stop over: trying to find food, 2km walk from LAX to In and Out Burger it is.
We have been here now for 5 days, and I can only state that some truly bizarre and random things have happened. Whether it's the band or NYC I'm not so sure.
So far we are lucky that one of us didn't end up in prison. Another has ended up trapped in a toilet with some random girl that liked swapping clothes with anyone. Fortunately for her this particular incident required some form of clothing exchange... I'll leave the rest up to your imagination. We've seen the Midnight Juggernauts play, lost a knitted cardigan to find another knitted cardigan, broken a keyboard to be replaced by another keyboard, lost a member but found him 2 minutes before going on stage, lost two members to a night of drunkenness and dust... Our shows so far have felt amazing, and we can't wait to play more.
We'll be heading to the mountains to record in a couple of weeks. Above are some weird photos - I'm sorry that they are a bit crap, I'll make more of an effort now that i'm the official photographer....
Also it turns out TIM is a natural GPS!
