What music or artists inspired you?
All of us are influenced by an array of musicians. However, we collectively agree the following are who we look to the most for inspiration are:
• Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
• Guns N Roses
How did things get started?
Three of us met when we formed our former goth-metal band back in 2013. After playing music that we felt pigeon-holed to a specific genre, we collectively decided we wanted to create music without boundaries. Soon after deciding on the new direction, we introduced Stevie, formed Kvlts Of Vice and never looked back.
How would you best describe your live show?
High energy, bluesy rock ‘n’ roll under a dark aesthetic.

Tell us about your latest release:
We released our debut EP Death On The Delta on January 23 and celebrated by hosting our launch party at Brighton Up Bar, Darlinghurst. The goal with this record was to include six tracks, showcasing our diversity and universal affection of music.
Despite dipping in and out of genres in each track, the EP tells a story. We’re proud to unveil an EP which houses six tracks that both stand alone in their own right and contribute to the pseudo-concept, present throughout the EP.
Listen to ‘Stumbled Upon’ on AU Radio , Mondays at 8:30PM, Thursdays at 3PM and Sundays at 10AM (AEDT).
