Sir Curse Discusses Single's, Music, and the Circus!

 Alternative theatrical rock band SIR CURSE is a 6-piece formed to bring the circus to the big top that is the music scene. With just two single's out currently, more music is surely to follow suite. Find out what else the band had to discuss from below.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Sir Curse formed after Ellen (Keyboard) and I (Lyndsay - Vocals) met at University. We started to write music inspired by the Brothers Grimm Fairytales and American Horror Story. We got together with the rest of Sir Curse (Eric, Joe, Bill and Aidan) sometime after we finished University and started writing together.

We all have such different backgrounds but somehow it all still works! Our music is innovative and has so much energy, which is crazy considering how many different styles we fuse together! We’re so theatrical but we also have jazz, metal, country and pop influences.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

We wanted a play on the word ‘circus’, as our music is very circus inspired. As we’re so heavily influenced by fairytales and dark side of music, we needed something that was a little sinister too! Sir Curse is a perfect mixture of this! I love people’s reactions when it clicks that Sir Curse is a sort of pun/play on words.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We’re split between Leeds and Manchester so not too far from each other. Yes, actually! We have some friends in a metal band called Pravitas, they’re doing really well. Their music is really interesting and they’re all round good guys!

4. How would you describe your style?

Theatrical, loud, sinister, and intense!! We’re such a ‘live band’, all our shows are really unique because of the theatrical element to our performances. Each member of the band has a character which they act as on stage. We’ve had a couple great live shows where Bill (Guitarist) will go out into the audience, while going crazy on the guitar, and screaming with people! It’s really fun to watch everyone get in character.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We’ve got two singles out at the moment, and music videos to complement them! Our music has a lot of different styles to it, lots of different influences from jazz to musical theatre! There’s something for everyone. Our second single "Graphite" was just played on BBC Radio 6 via Tom Robbinson.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

"Graphite" is a much heavier tune than our debut single "Tarot". It has a real kick to it with lots of great hooks that you’ll keep singing throughout the day! You can listen to it on all streaming devices including our YouTube Channel.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We’ve just finished our little mini tour around the UK. We’re taking a short break to focus on promoting Graphite and writing new music, then we have another spout of gigs towards the end of Spring. We’re seriously excited for our London show on the 2nd of May. We’re supporting the Electric Swing Circus at Hootananny Brixton!

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

We really want to keep releasing music and playing bigger shows. We would love to do a festival tour. We’ve just played Boomtown 2019, so our next big festival would hopefully be Glastonbury.
We’re writing constantly, and will hopefully have a new release towards the back end of 2020! We will keep you posted!

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can listen to our music on any and all streaming devices, or you can head to our website at

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

One by one, each record we release, each piece of merchandise we release, the music videos we create is all a part of an overarching story. If people want to know more they have to listen and watch!
