Description

Melbourne upstarts The Prize are living proof that no matter the situation there is a way.
Forming in early 2021 during the Global Pandemic, and without the normal music support networks usually available to a fledgling band, The Prize pushed forward regardless.
They first set about writing music before establishing their name and by the end of that year found themselves performing in front of a sold out show supporting CIVIC at the Croxton Bandroom. And what’s more, this was the band’s first time on stage.
Since then The Prize have released a highly successful debut EP, 'Wrong Side Of Town', and have just finished a national tour supporting The Chats.
It’s been a whirlwind ride for the young band, and they aren’t finished just yet.
Vocalist/drummer Nadine Muller joined HEAVY to chat about all things relating to The Prize starting with the response to 'Wrong Side Of Town'.
"We were very surprised," she smiled. "We released the EP maybe three weeks ago now, and it sold out in 24 hours on line so that was pretty cool. We put that out through Anti Fade Records, which is a Melbourne based label, and yeah, the response has been really great. We've kept a few copies to sell at our launch this weekend so you can still get it through us."
In the full interview Muller talks about the musical direction of 'Wrong Side Of Town', the thought process going into a debut EP, the formation of the band during COVID and how they managed to work around it, their blend of power pop and old school rock and where it came from, playing in front of a sold out crowd for their first gig, the recent tour with The Chats, their upcoming EP launch shows and more.
