Today I want to introduce a new band spotlight of a band local to us who we saw live in March, and have kept in touch with since.
Who are you and where do you hail from?
Sonic Hearts Foundation, Glasgow
Please introduce the band members
Anthony (guitar / vox/ Keys), Brian (Guitar/ Synth) Thomas (Drums), Conor (Bass)
How would you describe your sound?
Effects driven wall of sound with intense tribal like drumming, rhythmic bass lines and lyrics which represent modern times.
Who are your biggest influences?
Contemporary bands such as Twilight Sad, Mogwai, The Horrors but also bands like The Verve, My Bloody Valentine, Joy Division
Our readers will like your because…
We’re something a bit different from most of the Scottish bands kicking about at the minute. In terms of our live performances we try to keep it interesting by using simple but effective visuals. We try to stray away from usual venues for example our single launch will be taking place in an art gallery but not your normal stage set up….
What’s the best gig you’ve played so far?
Supporting The Duke Spirit at King Tuts in March…Or maybe our guerrilla rooftop performance after the Pete Doherty show at the Barras!!
What’s the bands greatest personal achievement to date?
Enjoying breakfast at home the morning after the rooftop performance rather than in a jail cell!! Ha!
Where can we get your music from?
You can get some free downloads from www.soundcloud.com/sonicheartsfoundation But we will be releasing our debut single “The Storm” on the 30th April and physical copies of the single can be purchased at our live shows from the 28th April (single launch night) onwards and can also be downloaded from iTunes, Amazon, Spotify from the 30th April
