Glasgow band, Blush Club will release their debut single Love Bites world wide on all major streaming platforms. The track will debut Friday the 28th of February, so The Fountain caught up with Craig from the band to discuss plans for 2020 as well as offering his opinion on Glasgow crowds.
TF: You have a new single out, what reception have you had thus far?
The reception has been really encouraging this far. When we got together and started playing, really, we just wanted to experiment and see what we could come up with. We’ve had great response from promoters (when booking gigs), friends and family. We really can’t wait to see what fans think of it.
TF: How would you sum up Love Bites in one sentence?
Oh, that’s a good question. Hamish Swanson (the vocalist) summarised it pretty well. “it’s about the interplay of the frustrations of romance/tinder-hook-up and the technology with which we communicate and which facilitate such endeavours.”
TF: Will you be performing the track live anytime soon, it would be great to hear it in that format?
Yeah, certainly! We are playing The Hug and Pint on the 3rd of March along side Make Friends and Olexey. You can buy tickets through Blush Club’s Facebook page or through the venue’s website.
TF: How do you find the Glasgow crowd?
Always the best! Hold up, is that us being biased? We think the Glasgow crowd is certainly the more eclectic compared to other places. You get a real mix of folk who are there for a bev, a dance and to just enjoy themselves. Even when we aren’t playing but watching other bands with their crowds, there is still that good cluster of folk just going for it.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, some more single releases, an EP?
We’ve got a few things planned. In the summer we are playing part of a showcase that is being organised but hasn’t been announced yet. So it’s still a bit hush hush. Conor Heafey (lead guitar) has a pretty nifty wee studio. We’ve been crafting away at songs in there, I think we’ll get a few more singles out and see how people respond and go from there.
