Wall Of Sound Presents: “2022 YEAR IN REVIEW” by Banks Arcade’s Joshua O’Donnell

2022 Has been a huge year for us. From touring around Australia multiple times, to going to the UK and playing alongside some of the biggest bands on earth at Download Festival, and making our way back home for some amazing headline shows. We have spent the majority of this year on the road and we couldn’t be more grateful to the people that have helped us, fed us, given us floors to crash on, helped with our live show, and our label and management for helping to keep it all running smoothly.

We made new friends and learned many valuable lessons that we’re going to take into next year, and it’s one we won’t be forgetting anytime soon.

BEST MUSIC VIDEO OF 2022

I don’t really like music videos in general tbh, but I have loved all of Void of Vision’s stuff this year. Peak aesthetic. Altar is probably my fave.

FAVOURITE GIG YOU PLAYED THIS YEAR

We’ve done so many amazing ones, but I’m going to have to say our two nights headlining Cherry Bar in Melbourne. It was small but they were sold out tight shows with unmatched energy.

BIGGEST WTF OR WHOLESOME MOMENT FOR YOU/YOUR BAND

Playing Download in the UK. It was amazing to tick that off so early in our careers and it was an amazing moment for all of us.

ANY SNEAK PEEKS OF YOUR 2023 PLANS FOR FANS

We will not be slowing down at all. Expect more of the same just bigger and better.
