This week I caught up with a fantastic young band, who have been working hard to develop their unique style. Hertfordshire based September Sky are an extremely talented group with both songwriting talent and awesome performance ability. With a string of upcoming shows the band are becoming more well known, with their talents continuing to develop. Definitely one to watch! Their music is deep, memorable and very catchy. I highly recommend you check them out, and definitely make it to one of their gigs if your in the hertfordshire, london area! With all great bands you haven’t fully experienced them, until you’ve seen them live. I caught up with the guys to ask them a few questions:
Tell me a bit about your musical style as a band
Our style is one we like to say we found on our own. It is based around a pop punk/Alternative style with some post hardcore mixed in.
What influences and inspires you most, when creating your music?
I think we all have different influences, but that’s where our sound comes from. By each of us having our own we create something new. Mostly alternative bands like Paramore and Fightstar to Interpol, Coheed and Cambria, Evanescence and many others.
As a group, have you found if difficult to establish your style, or has it just come naturally?
We feel it came quite naturally, we enjoy what we play and we all seem to write music in a very similar style to each other so there’s not really much of a struggle to fit each other into one style, especially considering the diversity of music we listen to. Sometimes difficulties can come along for us when writing but once the ball gets rolling things come a lot easier.
What are your thoughts on the british music scene of today?
Different. Very different! It’s funny to see just how much music changes over the years and we think that if you go looking for them, there are hundreds of fantastic bands around, no matter what style or genre you prefer. We’ve played with such a huge range of bands and most nights we’ve found something we’ve really enjoyed and gotten into. There is so much creativity around where as, probably due to restrictions on freedom, some big signed bands can be lacking in something sometimes, but all n all the British scene is good
Finally where can our readers see more of you guys in the future? Do you have any up and coming shows or projects?
And we have a video in the works so keep an eye out for us
The gigs we got coming up are
20th July Bridgehouse, London
19th October Asylum Chelmsford
We hope to see you all there
I hope you enjoyed that guys! Be sure to check out the band online to be the first to hear about new songs and upcoming shows!
