Things We Couldn’t Kill is the first in a series of three tracks to be released by Paisley outfit, Subtopian Planning Board. With a distinctive sound, and beguiling artwork, The Fountain caught up with the band to discuss the single in more depth as well as their plans for 2020.

TF: You have a new single out, what reception have you had thus far?

It’s been quietly making the rounds and so far has been received quite positively. Which is great considering it might not be a style that everyone is familiar with. 

TF: How would you sum up the track in one sentence?

A dark and evolving psychedelic rock piece that explores our nature as creatures of habit and how even when we have the chance to change, we often don’t.

TF: Will you be performing the track live anytime soon, it would be great to hear it in that format?

Yeah, we are playing the Bungalow again on April 19 where it could definitely feature. We are also looking to organise something in June in Glasgow but still ironing out the details for that one. We’re always looking for gig opportunities though so if anything comes up between now and April we will let you know. For those that are interested follow us on you’re preferred social media platform. I think we’re on most things now.

TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, some more single releases, an EP?

So we’ve got two other singles being launched. One at our Bungalow gig on the 19th April and the other in June. Although being released as singles the tracks, including Things We Couldn’t Kill, are part of the same series. Furthermore we’ll continue to track demos (some might surface online if we think they sound good enough) and will be looking to get one or possibly two more studio recordings done for later in the year.
