TotalNtertainment was please to be able to grab some time with Adore//Repel for a quick 10 questions ahead of the 360RAW night in Leeds on 13/04
1. Hi, thanks for answering our questions, can you introduce the band to our readers?
Hey, we are Post-Rock Band Adore//Repel from Dewsbury. On guitars and vocals are twins Jimmy and Danny; on bass is Bob; and our drummer is Anthony aka Waggy.
2. You’re playing #360RAW2 this week; what can people expect from your set?
Melody then energy. Crying then dancing.
3. How did you get involved in the night?
Headliners Skull asked us if we would like to play their album launch, as we are putting out their album through our label Shoveitupyourcult Records, and we want to support them in any way we can.
4. Could you describe your sound in just ten words?
Melodic wall of sound, 90s dance elements and hardcore roots.
5. Could you tell us what music you have out and how people can hear it?
We have two singles and a full album out, with a new single on the way. You can listen to them or buy them through all the usual online media sites. You can also buy our album on vinyl through our Bandcamp.
6. What has been your most memorable gig; good or bad?
Leeds and Reading festival. Also, our album launch gig at 360 club last May. The love was overwhelming.
7. The #360RAW nights are designed to help promote emerging bands in the West Yorkshire area. What are your thoughts about the scene in West Yorkshire?
I think the scene here in West Yorkshire is thriving, and it’s down to the people to start digging deep and supporting the local music around them. We also put on a monthly show, and you get people walking away when you ask for £3 entry fee. Come on folks you’re missing out for the price of a drink.
8. Are there any emerging bands that you think we should be checking out?
All the bands on this 360Raw night. A few other mentions are Celestial Green, Johny Gibson, Robert Sharp, Mixtape Saints and The Stayawakes.
9. If you were trapped on a desert island, what one item would you want to have with you?
10. And, finally, what are your plans and your ambitions for the rest of the year?
We are currently writing a new album and will be recording it in Iceland. We also have a USA tour in September, plus a UK tour in June.
