FOR front woman of Bangalow four-piece Three Cornered Square, Cacey Blackburn, it's attention to detail that can make the ordinary, extraordinary.

From experimenting with sounds on the group's first EP, to props and costumes for their live shows, Cacey said she wants audiences to take something special away from their gigs.

"We spend a lot of time on the detail; it's something we feel very deeply about," Cacey said.

"In the band, everyone has their own areas that they're very keen on. I like to put a lot of time and energy into preparations for our live shows. We love Pink Floyd and we hope one day we have that budget and people around us to create something like that."

Pulse caught up with the singer yesterday before they head up to Central Queensland next weekend to play at the Mercure Capricorn Resort as a showcase for their self-titled EP which will be released this month.

In the throes of writing for the first album, Cacey described their sound as quite "moody" and "emotional" at times, having many facets to their music.

"Some of our stuff has a real laid back vibe; we play some acoustic songs but we also have faster numbers as well," she said.

"But it's also a bit of progressive rock, and our sounds can be quite big, but it's really interesting and always changing."

Signing to independent boutique record label Dragging Canoe Records off the back of performing at last year's Bluesfest, the band also got to christen their new rehearsal space by recording their debut EP with producer Paul Pilsneniks (The Tea Party, Angus Stone, Alanis Morrisette, Boy & Bear, Pete Murray, The Medics).

Currently working towards rehearsals for their Capricorn Coast gig, Cacey said she and the boys, one of whom is her brother Josh, weren't unfamiliar to the area.

"My brother and I used to live in Rocky and went to school there, so we know the place quite well," she laughed.

"We're just really looking forward to performing and we hope people come along listen and we can give them something they've never seen before. Something unique."

Three Cornered Square are already earmarked for great things. Mentored by Sam Cutler (ex Manager The Grateful Dead, The Rolling Stones) this band is certainly one to watch and is already creating a buzz in the Australian music scene, after being invited to perform at the Australian Independent Music Awards in Sydney last year.

They are also planning an extensive tour throughout the UK and Germany early next year.
