Revivalry are an indie band, they have recently released a single called ‘Lost Bliss’.
Here’s what they had to say when we got a chance to ask them some questions.
How did you all meet?
“We all go to the same school but hardly knew each other. Ben (guitar) and Lewis (drums) got together through mutual friends and started jamming. They then saw Connie perform in a school concert so when they needed vocals they knew who to ask! Revivalry took shape”.
Who were your musical influences growing up?
“We all have our own taste but in general : Arctic Monkeys, Green Day, Stereophonics, Slaves, The Cranberries, Metallica”.
What made you want to be in a band?
“Just the love of music, we are all growing up in households where music surrounds us and from that grew the desire to play it”.
What has been your best gig?
“We really enjoy playing live so it is hard to choose but in Lincoln we played at The Still. The pub was packed, people watched through windows because they couldn’t get in and everybody really got into the vibe. We didn’t want to finish and they didn’t want us to so we ended up repeating some tracks – needless to say when they invited us back we jumped at the chance!”
Can you tell us a bit about your music?
“The 3 of us all listen to different types of music so we bring different things to the table. Our music definitely has its roots in Indie but we have been described as pop-punk too and our latest single Lost Bliss is more in that genre. We are working on new music though that is quite heavy so we are still finding ourselves and trying new styles”.
Can you describe your music in 3 words?
“Young, Fresh, Exciting”
What makes your band stand out from others?
“Our age – because we are aged between 13 and 16 we are still experimenting, still finding our sound and that makes it interesting and exciting for us and the listener”.
What are your plans for the rest of 2020?
“Right now it is to get through lockdown and get back together practicing, writing and recording and getting ready for a massive push toward Kendal Calling 2021”.
If your band had to be remembered for one thing apart from your music what would you want it to be?
“Good fun and dedication”.
Do you have any gig’s coming up?
“Did we mention Kendal Calling 2021 ???, J From 30th July 2021 Manchester Oldham Street supporting Crimson Bloom and The Mariners 5th June 2021 Lincolnshire Live Aid anniversary Cleethorpes 7th March 2021.
