Summerset Says Lots on Music including Recent Single's and an All New Album!

Not that long ago SUMMERSET was formed, currently hard at work upon what will be their debut album, with them even releasing two single's recently. More is to be had at work, with other plans also at work as well. Find out what more the band had to say about their music and themselves below.

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

We formed in March 2018 in a high school music room and the singer is the only original member. We changed every member a couple times before we found a group that would really gel. Recently we added another friend of ours to fill in while our bassist is out injured, which has helped us diversify our style even more.

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

Our Bassist used to live next to a big private school called Somerset, while we went to a regular public school, so we thought it would be a cool juxtaposition. That and we really like the summer ends by American football.

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 are based on the Gold Coast and Brisbane, Australia and our scene isn’t too great to bands under 18 like us but we think there’s a few good bands like Sleepwell, Waxflower and Perseverance and on the more known level bands like Stepson that we think are helping the punk/alt scene stay active.

4. How would you describe your style?

Honestly, it’s a bit hard. We mix so many genres together and pull from so many influences. Sometimes you have stuff that’s fast and technical next to songs with soft vocals that turns into a heavy verse with anguished screams. Really you’d just have to listen and see what you think.

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

We currently have two singles released and people can expect to hear tracks full of raw energy and big choruses.

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

We are currently working on a 12 track Album, which is all written we just need to jam properly, which has hard given the current situations.

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

We’re playing a gig tomorrow (Sep 6th) as well as at least 4/5+ over the next 3 months, hopefully more if the right people hear us.

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

We’ve already started writing for the 2nd album and we just want to connect with people and take this as far as we can.

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

You can listen to us on all major services like Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play Music, etc. As of now we don’t have anything for sale other than songs because we only released our first track a month ago and haven’t been asked about it. When people start asking for merch, we’ll make it.

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

We’d like people to remember that we appreciate everyone who bothers to listen to our music, and we really wanna connect with people and make ourselves something people can relate to when they’re just as messed up as us.
