Since 2013, At The Space Jam have boasted a penchant for live energy, and a musical style which is both varied and unique. Their newest offering is ‘Hold On’, a breakneck serving of brass ladened punk, which tackles the setbacks and the sometimes seemingly fruitless vine which is the music industry. The track provides the perfect platform for the commentary, being the band’s most relentless and hard-hitting song.
The Perth 8-piece claims no allegiance to one genre; instead opting to amalgamate their individual cultures and interests. Since their humble beginnings in high school, the At The Space Jam experience has developed immensely, mainly due to the inclusion of a 4-piece horn section which has made the band an even more alluring during their live shows.
‘Hold On’ was recorded at Soundfield Studios in Bayswater under the guidance and expertise of sound engineer Dr Stuart James. The band’s punk vision for the song was achieved through the tones created at Soundfield and the production work of mix engineer, Nik Thompson.
“The song’s foundations were formed in 2014, however it took us a while to get the song to the final product you hear today. A big part of this was the inclusion of an homage to Sam & Dave’s ‘Hold On I’m Coming’, which not only fit the song musically, but provided a unique vehicle through which to further explore the themes of the song,’ says the band on the creation of the track.
Regardless of whether the room is nearly empty or packed out; At The Space Jam excels in drawing in the crowd and creating a party atmosphere. This has caught the eye of many artists with the band playing alongside both international artists and some of the best homegrown talent Australia has to offer.
