Since Tuesday

Portland vocal group Since Tuesday have put themselves on the national music scene, making the finals of the illustrious Highton Rotary Club’s annual Star Search.Since 1976, the talent search has been a well-known stepping stone for many Australian acts including Missy Higgins and The Voice finalist Jackson Thomas.Despite coming home empty handed, the four Portland Secondary College students who make up the band, Patricia Thompson, 15, Sophie Von Tunk, 17, Maddi Cram, 17, and Beau Dixon, 15, said they enjoyed the experience."It was a really strong competition, with seven finalists in the vocals section and eight in the instrumental section," Sophie said."We had to perform first, which was pretty daunting."The group performed a mash-up of Peggy Lee’s classic ‘Fever’ and ‘Tainted Love’ by 1980s synthpop duo Soft Cell."While they are two completely different songs, the bass line and chord changes are similar," Maddi said."We auditioned with these songs in the heats in May, which had about 40 acts."The finals of the star search just adds to the long list of performances the band has put together in the past six months, which include the Port Fairy Folk Festival, Nelson Road2River Festival, and Australia Day festival Bridgestock.Later this month, the band will appear at the Warrnambool Eisteddfod with an original song.
