Dublin alternative indie rock trio Fruitz, consisting of James Keegan (vocals, guitar), Adam Whelehan (bass, backing vocals), Jamie Bond (guitar, backing vocals) and Jacqueline Campion (drums), are back with a new single Be Like This, the first single off their debut EP The Pits and The Glamour. The band spoke with The Fountain about the new track as well as plans for the remainder of the year.
TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Be Like This?
James: The reception has been great, it’s got some really lovely reviews so far. Everyone is buzzing to hear it live.
Adam: The reception has been great so far I’m delighted people are digging the track!
Jacqueline: The feedback has been unreal. So great to see people loving the tune as much as we do.
TF: And can you sum up the track in one sentence?
James: A piece of brilliance.
Adam: Bright, exciting and contagious.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, I note an EP?
Adam: Yes releasing our EP will be the main goal, and hopefully being able to play a gig before the year is out, really miss the live scene.
Jacqueline: Release the EP, share more music and hopefully get the chance to play the tracks live for people.
James: Yeah the EP will be the highlight. Obviously playing a gig or two this year would be great, miss that a lot.
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
Adam: I love playing in The Sound House, it’s a great venue with fantastic sound, I really look forward to playing there again soon and Whelan’s. Looking forward to the three arena 😉
James: I do enjoy Whelans as it’s so intimate, the crowd is nearly on the stage. I’ve said it before that the Olympia theatre is the dream!
