Since hitting the road with the Northern grunge outfit, AllUsOnDrugs last year, all we’ve ever heard about are Fizzy Blood, and just how their music will either make you dance, air guitar, or punch the ceiling. Do yourself a favour, grab a copy of their incredibly diverse, fist pumping, heart pulsing record, ‘Feast’, buckle up, and be prepared for one hell of a bumpy ride.
“Honestly it feels like you’re climbing mountains…”
FIRST OFF WHY THE BAND NAME FIZZY BLOOD? IS THIS BAND HIGHLY ADDICTED TO SUGAR OR IS IT JUST A REPRESENTATION OF ALL OF THE ENERGY YOU HAVE?
“It’s taken from Jamie Lenman’s first single, which came out shortly before we decided to start the band. Our manager actually met him and Jamie apologised because he was sure he had subliminally stolen it, but if you’re reading this Jamie, we definitely pinched it from you!”
HAVING ONLY FORMED LAST YEAR, WHAT’S BEEN THE BAND’S BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT IN THE LAST 12 MONTHS?
“Probably going over to do some shows in South Korea. That was definitely a landmark moment and we couldn’t have done it without the help of our brilliant team and Sound City.”
YOU’RE SELF PROCLAIMED ROCK N ROLL, BUT WHAT EXACTLY DOES FIZZY BLOOD SOUND LIKE?
“We don’t like describing our sound because everyone has different benchmarks for reliability based on their own unique experiences.
“Highlights? Playing shows in South Korea…”
Music is one of the most subjective things there is, so we like to encourage people to listen and decide for themselves what they think we sound like.”
FINALLY HAVING ONLY BEEN A BAND FOR THE LAST UEAR, HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE A NEW BAND IN THE UK AT THE MOMENT? HOW IMPORTANT IS IT TO SUPPORT NEW MUSIC?
“Honestly, it feels like you’re climbing a mountain with weights on your back and at any moment the ground beneath your feet could crumble, and the people at the top of the mountain are throwing all of their rubbish off the precipice, unaware that you’re having to dodge it further down or that you’re even climbing for that matter. But every time you manage to climb a little bit higher you get a rush to the head like “This is the best thing ever.”
