Iva Davies from Icehouse

Classic Aussie band receives illustrious honour.

Icehouse frontman Iva Davies says he’s “very proud” to see his song ‘Great Southern Land’ added to the National Film and Sound Archives.

“I thought right from the beginning it was a potentially dangerous thing to do,” he told Will Goodings on FIVEaa, “to try and sum up the country in which you were born and lived all your life in a song.”

“I took the task very, very seriously,” he said.

Icehouse will play at Sounds @ Serafino in McLaren Vale on Australia Day.
