Totally Addicted to Stellar

Boasting over 8,000 views on YouTube in the first week of releasing their single, “Second On Your Mind”, Stellar Addiction have exploded into the media with
rock punk sex appeal. LOTL gets an exclusive insight into the inner workings of this sexy foursome.

So what turns you on musically?

Tanya: P!NK, Gwen Stefani…ah wait you said “what” not “who”…I love layers and harmonies!

Who are you listening to at the moment?

Stacey: I work in retail and let’s just say if I hear Britney Spears one more time..…there will be blood. But if I had a choice, I’d probably be listening to some old Millencolin or John Butler Trio.

One thing that is cool about you:

Stacey: I have 8 piercings, is that even cool these days?

One thing that is totally geeky about you:

Michael: I’ve seen every episode of The Simpsons
Goldwyn: My speech is too articulate for me, I dumb it down to mask my geekiness.

Who writes your songs?

Tanya: We all write together, we work best that way. Means we all own a part of every song – which really helps us to perform each song like it’s our own!

What is the story behind Second On Your Mind?

Stacey: This one was written during different stages of the end of a relationship. The first stage was a when I felt really alone and frustrated by the feeling that I was misunderstood, then there was the realisation that it just wasn’t meant to be, and then when it was actually over and I felt a kind of release and lastly I was able to look back fondly and finally say goodbye.

What has been your most memorable moment being in the band so far?

Michael: Playing Second On Your Mind in the back of a pink stretch Hummer

What is one thing you would like for us to know about you?

Stacey: I’m a feminist and a vego.

What is one thing you would definitely not like for us to know about you?

Stacey: The amount of fines I received in 2013.
Goldwyn: Maybe if I say it, it would defeat the purpose but if I have to answer I guess I’d say I’m secretly a total geek…but don’t tell the ladies.

How did you end up in the band?

Stacey: Tanya followed me around until I agreed to join! Haha
Tanya: Hahaha I gave birth to it! I would have been pretty upset if I didn’t end up in it!

What is your greatest dream for Stellar Addiction?

Stacey: I would absolutely love to be playing the festival circuit. I don’t want to be rich man, that’s never been my game but just to be touring around and doing what I love that’d be ace!

When you’re feeling high or low, do you bring it into your music?

Tanya: Absolutely. I think all the songs I write are a reflection of something that is happening in my life at that time! Music is how I let it out.
Stacey: Absolutely. Usually it’s more of the low that gets me writing. But recently I wrote my first ever happy song, love will do that.

Describe yourself using 3 adjectives.

Michael: Quiet, Shy and reserved.
Goldwyn: Tall, Dark, and Handsome. Lol
Tanya: Ambitious, intense, crazy.
Stacey: Passionate, fierce, kind.

What did you want to be growing up?

Tanya: When I was really little I wanted to be a dog because that meant me and my dog could be best friends.

What do you like to do when you’re not performing?

Tanya: I love a good pub sesh with mates! Love the beach. Try and get to as many gigs as I can … love getting my social on!
Stacey: I’m a make-up artist, I love anything to do with makeup and special fx. I also love my two doggies Charlotte and Pedro, they are my babies.

Tell us about your favourite moment with a fan.

Tanya: Last year I went to one of my dad’s gigs (he’s also a drummer). He got a cramp in his leg and asked me up on stage to take over for a few songs. When I got off stage all these older woman came up to me and planted kisses all over my face telling me I was amazing. I think my dad felt a bit gypped lol… that was a pretty funny moment especially since it wasn’t my gig.
Stacey: The funniest moment would have to be when these dudes were proposing to me whilst we were on stage out in Penrith.
