Spun are a band which specialise in acute, witty lyrics based around everyday living and snappy, concise tracks (their debut single clocked in at under 2 minutes). The trio are set to release their second single ‘Advertise Your Life’ so pre its release, we caught up with the band to briefly discuss the track, being a DIY band and the future!
Hi there! Firstly, so that our readers can know a bit more about you, please introduce Spun:
Yo! We are Luke, Jay and Steve, we’re from Southend in Essex and we play punk/alternative rock sort of stuff!
Your latest single ‘Advertise Your Life’ is out tomorrow, but for anyone who hasn’t yet heard it, what can people expect from the track?
It’s a pretty sludgy track based around a heavy riff that’s a lot of fun to play! The lyrics are about how creepy and tedious social media can be and the strange place it takes in our lives.
As a fully and proudly DIY band, even down to creating your own guitar pedals, what would you say are the most the rewarding things about doing it all yourself?
Just the process and journey of being creative! It’s why we do it and it’s all about having fun at the end of the day.
Where is somewhere you’d love to play live but haven’t yet?
Haha, we’re not too sure… We will literally play live anywhere! Although the more inappropriate the situation, the better…
Finally, have you got anything to share regarding upcoming gigs and what have you got planned for 2018?
Errr, gig wise we’re putting on a show March 24th with our label Instereo Records at Annie’s Bar in Southend alongside our mates Deniers, Foul Moon and The Fishes & I. So we plan to do a couple more like that this year. Also we’re at The Edge in Basildon 05/04 and we’re playing Luna Lounge in Leytonstone 03/08 for our pals Luna Punx promotions…
Other than that we have another single planned for this year, and a physical release or two towards the end of the year… And more gigs! Follow our Instagram to keep up to date with us best.
We’d like to thank Spun very much for their time. The band release their single ‘Advertise Your Life’ tomorrow, but in the meantime, you can check out more of their music via their Spotify below. Also, you can find the band on social media via the following links.
