ISOLATION INTERVIEWS: Project Culture

First of all, how’s it going?

It’s going alright thanks. We’re itching to get back to rehearsing together and playing gigs, but we’re trying to stay productive. I’ve been writing and recording demos for some new songs, and we’ll hopefully be able to start working on them as a band soon.

Can you tell me a bit about where your band name came from?

This is a bit of a non-story. Basically, I was on a website which randomly generates band names, and I just kept refreshing the page. Eventually ‘Project’ came up and I tried out a couple of words to go with it, and I thought that ‘Project Culture’ sounded nice. Though sometimes I just lie to people and say that it has some deep meaning behind it – “It’s not a name, IT’S A STATEMENT”.

How would you describe your sound to someone who hasn’t heard it previously?

We combine the melodic hooks and jangles of Indie Rock with the energy and the sense of urgency of Post-Punk.

Have you picked up any new skills during isolation?

I’ve been slowly trying to get better at the piano, but I keep getting sidetracked by ideas for new songs – nearly finished all the songs that I’d like to go on our debut album. I was also forced to learn how to get better at video editing when we did a split-screen isolation video for our charity single ‘These Unprecedented times’.

As for the others, Peter (Guitar) has been writing his dissertation for uni, and Jamie (Bass) has been playing the new Animal Crossing game non-stop.

Anything else you’d like to add?

Make sure to check out our new single ‘The Elephant Room’ on Spotify, along with the other 3 songs we have up on there right now. Also, please give us a follow on Instagram, a like on our Facebook page and, if you’re interested in seeing where we’re going next as a band, check out our demos on our Bandcamp page.

Released by 7Wallace and Price’s Toronto based imprint, 4 Of Clubs, ‘Courteney Cox’ is high-octane and an infectiously hooky slice of synth-soaked trap – a playful and tongue-in-cheek homage to Connor’s favourite actress and childhood crush.

INTERVIEW: Sterling Press

1. How’s lockdown been treating you? We haven’t been put down by it. We just got on with it and carried on writing and demoing new tunes. It’s obviously not as easy as it was before but we call each other a lot to discuss and share any ideas.

“It’s time to eat the nuts!” – Why Generation? Meets The New Twentys

A few days ago I got to chat over zoom with indie-pop rockers The New Twentys, made up of brothers Jimmy and Harry Morris, and Chris Bourne, to find out more about the new project, their single coming out next week, ‘You Got Me Good’, (a warm, uplifting song that will bring some light into these dreary days), and how the band went from playing in other projects to forming The New Twentys.

INTERVIEW: The Kecks

Not to drag on about the current situation, but since you are a very culturally diverse band, how has covid affected your work? Like everyone, we've had to cancel and seemingly indefinitely postpone tours and shows. It's, of course, frustrating and we miss it, but it's especially sad to see everyone in the industry being affected.

INTERVIEW: Henry Chappell Meets The Sukis

The Sukis are a Hertfordshire-based garage band, composed of four wonderful humans from Hitchin. They have quickly gathered a huge online presence with their pulsing and incredible indie rock. On a harsh January afternoon, they kindly joined me on Zoom to talk about all things Suki.
