Small Talk: Rachel Haircut
We Chat 90's, Donkey Kong And Beats With Half of Melbourne-Based Duo28-Sep-2012
While duo James Hewson and Hayden Quinn seem to take inspiration from certain A-symmetrical haircuts that were popular in 90’s circa Friends, and one half admits to ACCLAIM that he enjoys the questionable year of 1997, Rachel Haircut’s music is anything but out-of-date. Inspired by 90’s pop, 70’s psychedelic, their latest drop Reserve is the type of music to rave to at a warehouse party wearing stonewash jeans. We make some SMALL TALK with Hayden about the EP.
