One of my favorite bands to hit the music scene in 2012 is a young, up and coming British band called Splashh. While they haven’t been heard from in the states a ton yet, I believe in 2013 that is going to change. The band is slated to come over in March and play the SXSW festival, and I wanted to introduce our listeners to the band before they hit it real big. With some success in the UK already on the strength of some quality singles, the sky is the limit for the foursome. The guys were nice enough to answer some questions for West Michigan Indie, and you can read those below…
Q. Can you tell our readers how you guys met and became a band?
Q. It seems that success is coming quick for you guys, a regular on the pages of magazines like NME already. Are you surprised by the amount of attention you are receiving right now considering you haven’t been a band for a long time?
Q. I would assume that you guys are working on a full length album, I haven’t seen any news as to when that is coming out. Do you have a date when your album is going to be released, and is there a plan to release that in the U.S. and is getting fans in the U.S. important to you guys?
Q. How would you guys describe your sound? I pretty much describe it as kick ass, but I don’t know the technical terms for these things. Haha. Do you guys have any bands in the past or present that you would describe as influences, or kindred spirits?
Q. Do you have any plans to do some touring in the U.S.? I see that you guys are scheduled for SXSW in Austin this year.
Q.Which aspect of being a band do you like more, touring and performing live, or the creative aspects and being in the studio?
Q. What do you guys like to do in your free time, if you ever get any? Do you guys go out and see shows? Who was the last band you went out and bought tickets for to go see?
Q. Thanks for taking the time out guys. I appreciate it, and look forward to hearing more from you all in the future, and hopefully will catch on tour in the U.S. sometime!
