Genevieve: I am the singer and harpist in Cold Hands Warm Heart and I also play the with Hello Satellites.

V: How do you take your coffee?

G: Black. Long black when it’s cold, iced filter in summer, no sweet or milky additions ever!

V: Tell us what you like about your favourite cafe in Melbourne?

G: It’s too hard to choose! I love Everyday coffee in Collingwood for the excellent music, coffee and the calming vibes. New Day Rising in East Brunswick has got great records, excellent coffee and a killer vegan bagel with cashew cheese, kraut and smokey coconut.

V: Have a look through the cafes in Tokyo on en.goodcoffee.me – which cafe would you like to visit and why?

G: Little Nap Coffee Roaster where Cold Hands Warm Heart are playing a show. Ki because the design looks absolutely out of this world amazing and of course I’ll have to visit the Cibi in Tokyo (we have the original one in Melbourne!)

V: What would you say is the best background album to play at a cafe over coffee?

G: The Great Barrier Reef, Sunmoonstar, and Through the Looking Glass, Midori Takada

V: Finally, tell us when and where we can see you play in Japan?

G: We are super excited to be playing at Give me Little more in Matsumoto, 440 and Little Nap Coffee Roasters in Tokyo, HOP KEN in Osaka and UrBANGUILD in Kyoto. CHWH here -> https://coldhandswarmheart.bandcamp.com

 


Vaughan: Hi Esala Liyange, what do you play in ?

Esala: I am the drummer in Cold Hands Warm Heart

V: How do you take your coffee?

E: I am a sucker for Soy latte with Bonsoy, like a lot of people peeps over here in Melbourne.

V: Tell us what you like about your favourite cafe in Melbourne?

E: Too many, New Day Rising, Everyday Coffee, Friends of the Earth Food Co-op, where I work. But my new favorite is a Taiyo Sun, run by a Japanese artist. Its right next to park near Merri creek and the coffee is good and strong and they do this amazing curry and croissant. I am totally obsessed with all every type music so good music is essential in any place that I hang out and drink coffee in.

V: Have a look through the cafes in Tokyo on en.goodcoffee.me, which cafe would you like to visit and why?

E: Bookend Coffee Service is right near 440 where Cold Hand Warm Heart play our first show, I hear they play alot of awesome jazz and put on shows as well. Another on my list is Cibi, cause I do go to the one in Melbourne a bit and it will be surreal to see it in Tokyo. Any place they sell records and serve coffee? I am there. Let me know.

V: What would you say is the best background album to play at a cafe over coffee?

E: This what i been playing at work and at home over my morning coffee, Brian Eno – another green world classic mix of ambient and experimental pop, a big influence on CHWH. Local Melbourne band Orbweavers record Deep Leads and also Korean 70s psych pop by Kim Jung Mi’s album Now.

V: Finally, tell us when and where we can see you play in Japan?

E: The first show we are playing is at Give Me Little More in Matsumoto with Yffer & Hello Satellites. These are a few band on our label Eastmint from Australia on Saturday the 25 of November. Then Monday the Nov 27th at 440 in Shimokita with Hello Satellites + Cold Hands Warm Heart + Chima +Minakekke. Super excited and nervous about that! Especially to see Minakekke. Tuesday 28th of November at Little Nap Coffee Roasters with Takeda Kaori (From TICA). I want drink coffee and explore Meiji Jingu garden before the show. Cold Hands Warm Heart are also playing first of December in Osaka with Colloid who I saw last year in Melbourne twice. Kyoto with Quaeru at Urbanguild on the third of December.
