Above The Underground have just released their new Album ‘Sonder’, see review here

So I caught up with the band to find out more about them! 

As a band what are your musical influences?

“We all listen to a lot of different types of music so it's hard to say. When we write we try not to consider what bands people might think it sounds like or things that people are listening to at the time, we just try to write music that's true to ourselves and hopefully relatable for other people.”


Why should people listen to you?

“The only answer I can really give for that is that they might like us. There are so many easily accessible bands these days, that people are spoiled for choice, but I do feel that we have a unique sound that might resonate with some people, so it's worth a try. We have a lot of music out for free so if you don't like it, you're not losing anything!”


How do you differ from other bands?

“In the past few years we've become primarily a touring band, first and for most. We spend a lot of time on the road and I think that that can sometimes come across in our music. We've only ever put out songs that we're totally happy with, which can sometimes make the writing process kind of long, but I feel like it makes for better quality music.”


How would you describe the new album ?

“In relation to our old stuff, it's a much more mature, considered effort. Like I said, we spent a long time writing it and over the past few years we've all really grown as both people and musicians, and I think that's reflected in the song-writing.”


Where do you hope and realistically see yourselves in 5 to 10 years time?

“In five years hopefully still touring. In ten, who knows.”


Any plans of a tour coming up?

“We've got a run in Spain and Portugal coming up and then two weeks in Russia. Straight after that it's a UK run and then another EU run straight off the bat.”


Do you have a fact about the band that the fans don’t know?

“We did our own version of Boys Don't Cry by the Cure in our early days.”
