Southbank Crows – Interview

Southbank Crows – Interview

Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (

PD: What type of artist are you?

SC: We’re an Alternative Pop Rock band hailing from the South London and Surrey areas


PD: Tell us the brief history of yourself.

SC: We met late 2016 completely by accident and have become the best of friends, we share our stories and lots of laughs. 

We have embarked on several headline tours, some great festivals up and down the country and released some EP’s and our latest two singles off the upcoming debut record. We have loved every second of it. 


PD: Who are your musical and non-musical influences?

SC: Musical influences would be artists such as: stereophonics, Biffy Clyro, Coldplay, Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, Blink 182, Deaf Havana, Lower Than Atlantis, We Are The Ocean, Yellowcard, 


PD: What are your dreams and goals?

SC: We want to push this as far as we can, we all want a career in music more than anything, headlining Brixton Academy would be pretty sweet!


PD: Who writes your songs, what are they about?

SC: We write songs collectively most of the time, Usually Will brings lyrical and acoustic track ideas to the table, then we turn them into full on songs together. 


PD: How do you promote your band and shows?

SC: Most of the time we use Spotify, Facebook, Instagram and Bands In Town for getting our shows out there! 


PD: What do you think about downloading music online?

SC: It doesn’t bother us, I think that is just how things are with it so you kind of have to be on board with it. If not new listeners won’t here you and then come down to a show!


PD: What song do you wish you’d written and why?

SC: Kings and Queens By Thirty Seconds To Mars. This in my opinion is the greatest stadium anthem. The way it’s produced is spot on Stadium Rock. And it came out of a turmoil part on the bands life. It tees up the ideal audience participation too. 


PD: What are some of your pet peeves?

SC: Our Pet Peeves would probably be being late and not having a band Maccies after gigs.


PD: What is your proudest moment in music?

SC: I think it would be smashing up MoFest in Scotland. I had broken my hand the day before so it was destined to fail, but we drove 11 hours played three kick ass sets met some new people and drove home. 

Painkillers fix all!


PD: So what are you working on at the moment?

SC: At the moment we are working on the PR side of the release with two singles and videos out already it’s just getting the marketing right, so we can tour the record! 


PD: Tell us about your next shows and why we should be there.

SC:Our next show is at the Islington in London

You should be there because we promise to not let you down and would love to have a beer with you 🙂
