Six To Fix – Interview
Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (http://petesrocknewsandviews.com)
PD: What type of artist are you?
STF: We are a indie rock band that blends different styles, from rock to electronic sounds. That gives us our personal sound.
PD: Tell us the brief history of yourself.
STF: We started in 2011, being six members at the moment. That’s why we became Six to Fix. After some years and two records, we became four. We’ve supported Mika some years ago, and played at some Spanish festivals. Our last single was produced by Julian Emery (Nothing but thieves) and mixed by Adam Noble (Biffy Clyro, Placebo, U2). It will be part of our next album, we’re recording it now.
PD: Who are your musical and non-musical influences?
STF: There’s a lot of musical influences that give us a varied sound. From The Killers or U2 to The 1975 or Bloc Party. We listen to rock, pop, electronic music, even metal. Non-musical influences: maybe Steve Jobs philosophy of life.
PD: What are your dreams and goals?
STF: Make a living with music would be our dream. And we’d love to be able to go anywhere in the world and have an audience there.
PD: Who writes your songs, what are they about?
STF: Alfonso, the singer, writes the most part of the songs. They talk about good things and bad things of life, but always looking for an answer, an optimistic response to the problems.
PD: How do you promote your band and shows?
STF: We try to get promotion from music blogs, radios, TVs, etc. We try to get in playlists too, that gives you a lot of new listeners. And we focus on the cities we’re going to play when promoting a show, with some social media ads and contacting local media.
PD: What do you think about downloading music online?
STF: I think it’s ok if it gives you a chance to know new bands, if after that you support the bands going to the shows or buying their music.
PD: What song do you wish you’d written and why?
STF: There’s a lot of songs… let’s say Mr. Brightside by The Killers. It’s powerful and sensitive at the same time, good lyrics and great singing, melodies alongside memorable guitars. I choose this song but I would choose 100 more for different reasons.
PD: What are some of your pet peeves?
STF: It’s not pet peeves, but a tradition for the band: we drink 6 shots of liquor before every concert. We did it at the first gig when we were six, and now that we are four we still take six!
PD: What is your proudest moment in music?
STF: When we supported Mika in Barcelona, the venue was sold out and the audience was enthusiastic with us. We are proud of the collaboration with Julian Emery too, it’s difficult to get attention from such a great producer and bring him to Spain to record with us, and the experience was really great.
PD: So what are you working on at the moment?
STF: We are recording the new album right now, and scheduling tour dates.
PD: Tell us about your next shows and why we should be there.
STF: We have scheduled some dates in Spain and we intend to play in the UK soon, and some European cities if it’s possible.
People say our shows are a great experience. They are passionate, diverse, people sing, the songs take a different point of view when they are played live.
