Yomi Ship

  • The Boston 205 James Street Northbridge, WA, 6003 Australia (map)

Yomi Ship harbour all the most interesting of the descriptives that come after the musical catch-all that is ‘rock’.

Instrumental, experimental, art, psychedelic, post and progressive – they are all these and more in spades, but brothers Nick Osborne (drums) and Jarred Osborne (guitar) grew up in a musical family founded on some straight up rock’n’roll traditions. As young as 13 they were playing hard rock covers and originals at community festivals and Royal Shows, but evolution was afoot.

“I guess as I got older I started listening to bands that were more demanding in term of drumming,” Nick explains. “Bands like System Of A Down, The Mars Volta, Tool, A Perfect Circle. As I did that Jarred was listening to more guitar-heavy stuff and became a bit of a thrash-boy, into Megadeth, Slayer and the rest of that, then he ventured more into the Pink Floyd, Karnivool-esque type of stuff. We both just sort of matured with our music.”

Local influences played a part too. The Osborne brothers were highly inspired by the “bizarre-esque rhythms and washed out guitar tones” of the likes of Mudlark and Tame Impala.

The nature of Yomi Ship’s songwriting is very freeform and brings home the ideal that from little things big things grow. The notion is that while the initial, simple ideas are worked upon, they remain fresh for all concerned.
