In these strange times I have heard the phrase, “business as usual in unusual circumstances” quite frequently. This is none more fitting than to Caligula’s Horse. An unconventional band on the Australian rock scene now having to do unconventional things like promote their latest album Rise Radiant in the middle of a global pandemic (our review here). Using the responsible distancing measures of the opposite side of the country I caught up with songwriter and lead guitarist Sam Vallen to discuss the album, what it’s like trying to promote in a pandemic and why vinyl is just better.
