Artist Alert: Bash!

Can you tell us who you are, where you are from, and a little bit about the music you make?

We are five-piece band BASH! formed in Southampton in the year of 2018, we are great bunch of mates who make shameless pop muzak.

Why did you decide to start making music?

All of us came to Southampton to pursue a degree in music. We all have had different musical experiences growing up, and when we met each other at university things fell into place and we started making music together.

Who are your biggest influences?

We take our influence from The Big Moon, Paramore, Fickle Friends, The 1975, Confidence Man.

What has been your biggest highlight of this year as an Artist?

Our biggest highlight so far has been releasing our debut single and muzak video “Lovely, Smart and Beautiful” & “INDECISIVE”. We’re well happy with the response it received.  

What do you think of your local music scene at the moment?

We think there are a lot of great up and coming bands at the moment. And it is wonderful to have some great venues such as The Joiners or The Heartbreakers where there are always gigs to go and see.

Have you got any exciting plans you can tell us about going on in 2019?

Realising new tracks !! So watch out on the interweb/social media! And a sneaky tour at the end of the year.
