Space above is a new band of Los Angeles-based kiwi’s who’ve all got other musical projects. Aaron Short is part of The Naked And Famous, Maddie North fronts So Below, and Sam McCarthy used to be in Goodnight Nurse & currently makes techno as Boy Boy.

Recently they released their debut album Still, which was written when the trio shared an apartment. We talked to Aaron about his passion for electronic music, the musical community in LA, and turning found sounds like a bus braking into musical moments.
