INTERVIEW: Sweaty Palms
Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Pretty average. How’s u?
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Pretty Poor For A Posh Boy”?
Can’t really more than the song has already, well other than Nick Robinson – he is a bad man.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
Writing about politics seems to be pretty hot right now, and we’re here for the big money. Cheeky words about the cheeky BBC.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
There will be a video for ‘Love Me’ coming soon, as soon as we find someone who has a copy of Premier Pro that we can use.
What role does Glasgow play in your music?
Living here is a big factor, but there’s motivation to see other people and places too.
How was the recording and writing process?
We record with the beautiful people Emily and Stu from Green Door. Our lack of competence makes writing a long and painful process.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new LP – how’s that coming along?
We’re always writing. We have no money to make a record ourselves because nobody likes to pay for music these days (Adele being the exception), but if some kind person believes in us enough to help pay for an album, we’ll make one.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
I wanna be a PITCHFORK (2009) band.
Would this double track feature be some sort of sneak peek for this material?
I wouldn’t count on it, hopefully.
Any plans to hit the road?
We’re off with uncle Dale (Barclay) in July (20-24th) and have a few festival dates confirmed.
What else is happening next in Sweaty Palms’ world?
More interviews. Robbie hopes to take up Birkram yoga and clear the huge spiders out of our rehearsal space before one steals our lunch money.
These days, audiences want everything to be more cinematic, even events that have nothing to …
