Having never heard of these boys until a brief email encounter, a quick click over to their myspace page and the first thing you will notice is the absolutely stunning voice that accompanies this happy pop rock band. Any fans of Fall Out Boy and just fancy a new alternative. Check them out… no seriously.
1. Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Ruby; I play bass for Get Set Radio, a band based in London. We make killer tunes, fact.
2. How did you get started?
Steve wrote some songs that the rest of us liked. We needed a drummer, so snatched Jonas from Sweden. Two years later, here we stand!
3. What have you got going on at the moment?
We’re gearing up for the recording of our second EP. A lot of things are happening under the bonnet at the moment, but we’ll be very loud about it when we’re good and ready!
4. Favourite music and why?
Personally, Incubus because they are the epitome of a great band.
Artists for the others go between The Used, Reuben, Michael Jackson, Backyard Babies and N Sync…
7. Best experience in the business?
Playing shows and having people sing along; the experience knocked us all for six!
There’s so many mountains to climb, the smallest victories are always the sweetest.
8. Why should soundscape readers care?
Because Will has a range that can break double glazing.
Go to our website and tell us if we’re doing anything wrong! All our music is available for free from there.
9. Tell our readers an interesting fact about the band?
We produce everything GSR ourselves. From the website, music, merchandise, music videos… everything is done ‘in house’!
10. Best thing about coming from/being/playing in Wales?
A band I used to be in played in Wales often. The audience is always amazing and receptive of everything. There’s such a good vibe going in the scene in Wales at the moment, we’d love to make it over and play.
11. Who are your role models/idols?
Anybody who continues to do what they do regardless of the difficulties of the current climate. Times can be trying, but as long as you have passion for what you’re creating it’s all worth it in the end.
12. Hardest thing about the current business?
Getting noticed. I’d say it’s more of a challenge and it makes us strive to be a better band.
