It’s not long now until NZ hip-hop group Homebrew hit our shores for their official album release tour and the dudes are no doubt trimming their beards and cleaning their bongs in anticipation. Renowned in their motherland for artfully walking the line between smoked out party tunes and serious introspective vibes, Australia will be able to experience it for ourselves from early August AND we have a double pass to give away for each leg of the tour! But first we shot some questions at Tom Scott ahead of the road trip to find out what we’re about to expect. Details on the comp and dates at the end!
My name is…. Tom Scott.
By day I… make words rhyme.
By night I…. sob uncontrollably.
My favourite TV show is… Louie.
The last movie I watched was… shit.
The first album I ever bought was… ‘Doggy Style’.
The last was…. ‘Channel Orange’.
If I wasn’t making music I would probably be… clinically depressed.

The best thing about touring is… leaving.
The worst thing is… hand shakes.
