Brisbane’s Millions are a stellar band that have been making a lot of noise on the Australian scene. The band has a clever sense of melody and blend it with a firm garage pop sensibility to create a distinct and refreshing sound. Having just announced a tour with San Cisco, the band are about to embark on an exciting year. So, AMBY spoke to Millions about humourous favourite quotes, their latest EP Cruel, and legalizing cannabis!
AMBY: How would you describe Millions’ sound to those unfamiliar with your music?
Millions: Pop music with a thuggy edge
AMBY: You have recently released your latest EP, Cruel. Is there an album in the works?
Millions: Yep, we’re currently working on songs and doing demos. Hoping to record end of march and April
AMBY: Cruel is a cool song, what is the story behind it?
Millions: Being broke, bored and loveless.
AMBY: What is your favourite quote?
Millions: Try everything once except square dancing and incest.
AMBY: What part of the world would you like to play that you have not yet?

AMBY: Which three albums changed your life?
Millions: The Offspring – Conspiracy Of One, The Libertines – Up The Bracket, and The Beatles – Revolver. Close 4th would be Nas – Illmatic
AMBY: What is the funniest thing to happen to you at one of your gigs?
Millions: When James accidentally stopped playing halfway through a song and didn’t know himself- we had to hold it together until he realized.
AMBY: What has you excited for 2013?
Millions: Our album release and the huge amount of good music that is going to be released this year. Also my uni textbook allowance.
AMBY: If you could create a law that everyone would have to follow, what would it be?
Millions: Legalize cannabis.
AMBY: And lastly, what’s something about Millions that nobody knows yet?
