Belfast’s own Wynona Bleach released new single Glimmer last month, the first track from their anticipated debut album Moonsoake. The band have done a number of live session appearances on BBC Radio as well as generating viral, word of mouth airplay through BBC 6 Music, BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio, KXLU (Los Angeles) and Seattle’s own seminal radio station, KEXP in the USA. With new track out which is produced by Bill Ryder-Jones, The Fountain caught up with Wynona Bleach.
TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Glimmer?
Pretty great, thanks! We made a video on a shoestring budget of £6 in our friends forest and its went down way better than expected! Its a song that went down great live on the lead up to recording it last year. 🙂
TF: How would you sum this track up in one sentence?
When all is clearly lost, try not to give up.
TF: What is your plan for 2021, after this release?
Our debut album, (which we recorded in an abandoned Portuguese warehouse) is ready to go, we hope to be able to properly put a release date on it! We also hope to tour again the very second we are able to. Our live shows were what we are all about and we would love to be able to play the record in full. Meanwhile whilst caged in our isolation we’ve been writing and demoing new material.
TF: Where would you ideally want to perform this Christmas if you could choose any venue?
Once upon a time we would have said somewhere grand, but we would literally play anywhere. It would be nice to return to the Dublin Castle in London, any of our local haunts, or to play one of our favourite venues in Russia form our last tour.
