Indie-rock trio Scores have released their third single Broaden Out, which came out last month. Cementing the group’s addictive, propulsive sound, the single is taken from their upcoming debut album Vol. 1, which was released on 9th July. With all this activity The Fountain caught up with the band to discuss plans, venues and reception.

TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Broaden Out?

The reception to Broaden Out has been great! It’s simultaneously the darkest and most danceable track we’ve released so far. It’s exciting for us because we’re still a new artist so there isn’t a general expectation of how our music is going to sound. You only get to be a “new” band once in your band’s career, so we’re trying to savour every moment of being able to surprise people with what we’re doing musically.

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

Broaden Out is a dark and danceable indie-rock song with a psychedelic touch and introspective lyrics. 

TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, I note an LP?

Our debut record Vol. 1 was released for streaming/download everywhere and on our website (www.scoresband.com) on July 9. We’ll continue releasing music videos for each of the record’s 9 tracks. It seems like live shows are finally starting to make a comeback so we hope to begin performing live later this year. But if that doesn’t work out, the three of us will just keep playing Call of Duty: Warzone which is how we’ve mostly spent the past 15 months.

TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?

This is a brand new project, and we completed our debut record during the pandemic, so I can’t say where our favourite spot to perform is just yet. However, our other band Hembree (https://www.hembreemusic.com/) has toured through Europe, and played The Hug & Pint in Glasgow which was an absolute blast. It would be a dream to come back to Scotland and spend more time performing and exploring.
