Sinclair – Interview
Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (http://petesrocknewsandviews.com)
PD: What type of artist are you?
S: What colour is a chameleon? We have a massive sound from a wide range of influences so it’s hard to put us in a box.
PD: Tell us the brief history of yourself.
S: We officially formed in the beginning of 2020 after messing around and doing our own things for a while. We managed to get a few gigs under our belt before lockdown, and have since spent a week in the studio recording our debut up and coming singles.
PD: Who are your musical and non-musical influences?
S: Jim Morrison, Neil Peart, Bob Dylan, Tony Iommi and Peter Kay, to name a few.
PD: What are your dreams and goals?
S: Successful enough for people to know who Sinclair are worldwide.
PD: Who writes your songs, what are they about?
S: The lyrics and the barebones of the songs are done by the vocalist Ollie, who brings them to practice to be electrocuted. Then Chan the riff master on guitar and everyone else brings their instrument into the fold in their own creative way. The songs reflect everything influencing our lives, from issues of society to lack of sobriety.
PD: How do you promote your band and shows?
S: Mostly online, through our social medias and word of mouth.

PD: What do you think about downloading music online?
S: We don’t care how our music is heard, as long as people listen.
PD: What song do you wish you’d written and why?
S: The End by The Doors, or Sheriff Fatman by Carter and the Unstoppable Sex Machine. Both certified tunes.
PD: What are some of your pet peeves?
S: Every singer trying to sound like Alex Turner, and salad cream.
PD: What is your proudest moment in music?
S: Playing to a packed Academy 3, our last gig before the world shut down. A good one to go out on, and a benchmark for the level all our gigs will be in the future.
PD: So what are you working on at the moment?
S: At the moment we’re working on the build up to our debut single release, along with tightening up our live performance and banging out new tunes.
PD: What music have you available online and where can we buy it from?
S: Burn Em Down releases on the 25th September on all major streaming services, and keep your eyes peeled for more news and content coming out of our social medias.
