PREMIERE: Summer Flake - "Blue'"
Summer Flake is the breezy music project of Adelaide's Steph Crase. We decided to subject her to a full dose of the internet by asking her our favorite questions from Reddits popular Ask Me Anything sessions.
If there isn’t already an ice cream out there called Summer Flake, someone in the ice creaming business isn’t doing their job. Can you image what it would be like? I bet it would be so light you could shotgun 40 of them, no problem.
Iced confectionery aside, Summer Flake is the breezy music project of Adelaide's Steph Crase. Fans of cute girls singing nicely can look forward to Steph’s first album You Can Have It All in September. We decided to subject her to a full dose of the internet by asking her our favorite questions from Reddits popular Ask Me Anything sessions.
Noisey: So Steph, I’m really into Reddit, all these questions come from Ask Me Anything forums. Have you checked them out?
Steph Crase: Yeah I have actually.
That makes this easier. Don’t worry, I excluded the porn ones.
What is your favourite movie soundtrack?
The movie based on the comic?
Yeah, movie wasn't so great but the soundtrack was. I think it was arranged by Courtney Love or something.
What skill do you possess as an adult that you never could have imagined having as a child?
Um, I'm not sure it's a skill but I've learnt to not care about things so much. Just not worry as much as I did.
What was your worst injury and how did you get it?
I've had some bad injuries but I've never broken a bone or anything. Probably a bulging disc I had in my back from moving gear when I was in America earlier this year. After a few days I couldn't walk and had to come home early.
Oh man that sucks.
Yeah, it was horrible.
Let’s get real. What's your greatest regret in life?
Wow, these are some questions!
Strangers on Reddit don’t mess around.
Probably what I said before, caring too much when I was younger. Like, I never thought I would be able to play guitar in front of people when I was young. I wish I'd come to terms with that sooner.
What's the oldest thing you still use?
I guess my guitar, I've had that since I was twenty so kind of a long time. That's the only thing I can think of, other than CDs and stuff.
What is your weirdest habit?
Well I live alone, so I feel like I have heaps of weird habits that seem normal to me. Probably cleaning the house when I get home from a night out. It's that feeling when you're too tired to stay out but you have a feeling that something good might happen because it's a Friday night so you just potter around.
When you were younger, what did you say you wanted to be when you grew up?
When I was a kid I specifically told my parents that when I grew up I wanted to live in a caravan in their backyard and look after dogs.
That’s not so much a job as much as a planned burnout.
I know. And they still bring it up, "You said you were going to live in a caravan out back and look after us when we grow old!"
You have to be careful about long term care comments you make to your parents. If you could have any song play during a fighting/training montage, what would you pick?
Oh I've actually thought about this before and I had a good one but now all I can think is “Army Of Me” by Bjork. That wasn't the one I was thinking of though. Actually, maybe that's my weird habit: listening to songs on my way to work and thinking about how they'd be used in a soundtrack or something.
Thanks for chatting to us Steph, and thanks for the help Reddit.
