Interview with Suspire

 

written by Keira Murray. 

Clyde 1’s Jim Gellatly interviews the band after their performance at the Ignition Finale at the Old Fruitmarket.

Considering the reason behind tonight, are you a band that likes to give something back?

Paul: Yes absolutely, when we are performing we like to put on an environment that people will enjoy and then speak to their friends about. Also, it is about encouraging young people when they’re starting off in this industry not to play for pay, it is about going out there are seeing what it’s like first.

Is Glasgow spoilt with venues?

Brian: Definitely, people in Glasgow normally turn up to one of these venues to see one of their friends' bands and then leave when they’re finished but in other places people turn up to watch new music and listen out for every word and every movement you’re doing on stage.

Paul: Glasgow is spoilt in the way that you can go out on a Saturday night and come across music on any street like Bath Street or Sauchiehall Street and even places like here (Old Fruitmarket). There’s no way that you’re going to miss out in Glasgow musically.

suspire

[The interview turns to the ways in which Suspire try to get young people involved with their work.]

Brian: We have our own studio, do our own recordings, blue prints... so we basically try and do a lot of it ourselves. We’re recording a video soon so we’re trying to get people involved by coming into these shoots and helping behind the scenes.

Paul: I think a lot of people are chasing the fame when they enter an industry like this and the ‘art’ of music has kind of been lost to this ‘fame game’. We are trying to make a living through music but for us, it’s about giving back to the community which has helped us progress in the way that we have.
