Scottish band Spyres haven't been a band (in their current form) for very long but they have been doing incredibly well. If you haven't already, you need to hear them! 

I spoke to Jude from the band to find out a little bit more about them.

How are you?
Jude (Spyres): Good.

Can you tell me how you started as a band?
Jude (Spyres): It was actually just Emily and Keira [as an acoustic duo]. They got me and Alex to make it a fuller band, that was about February.

Can you tell me about your latest single 'Otherside'? [It's also their debut single.]
Jude (Spyres): 'Otherside' was actually written by Keira, about this younger generation. Quite a lot of people can relate to it. 

How does it feel to get played on Radio 1?
Jude (Spyres): It feels ureal, it's mad actually. It's mad. We're been Track of the Week on Radio X and Radio 1's Indie Show. Complete madness. [We've been supported by] different local radio stations.

Who are your musical influences?
Jude (Spyres): Wolf Alice, Courtney Barnett, Sonic Youth. Also female acts. We feel that maybe female acts aren't really [represented in the music industry]. We look up to them.

Do you have any live shows coming up?
Jude (Spyres): We' [supported] The Dunts [last Saturday] at The Garage, which sold out. We've got a Hopscotch gig on January 24, which is run by Jack Saunders. Our first headliner is on 17th Jan 2020. Tickets are already running out.  

What's next for you?
Jude (Spyres): We've got the gigs. Ne single coming out on Jan 24 called 'Fake ID' about being young, from a young band's perspective.
