We chat to Spanish alternative rock band Six to Fix about their new album, influences and being the finalist in the International Songwriting Competition.
Interview by Jane Howkins
How is 2020 treating you so far?
Everything was fine until now. The new single is getting great reviews and response, as well as the video clip. It’s even been finalist in the International Songwriting Competition. We were recording the new album, but now we are confined at home because of the corona virus, so there will be a delay of the scheduled release date. And we don’t know if we’ll be able to play the next gigs. But sooner or later everything will be fine again. We hope so.
Have you released any music so far this year? If so, what can you tell us about that?
We released our latest single When the night is over in December 2019 and the video clip was released in January.
Are you working on any new music at the moment? What are you working on, and when will it be released?
Our next album Imagination will be released soon. It was planned to be released in March, but we have not finished it yet due to the situation. As soon as we can get out of home, we’ll go back to the studio.
Have you got any upcoming tours planned? If so, where are you playing and where are you looking forward to going most?
We have some scheduled dates in Spain in the next months, and we’re looking forward to tour the UK soon, and some European countries, even the US if it’s possible.
Who/what has influenced you the most as musicians?
All of us have influences by classic bands like U2, Radiohead, The Killers, etc. but we are listening to modern bands too: The 1975, Nothing but Thieves, Twenty One Pilots, and different styles of music too.
What have you been listening to recently that you can recommend to our readers?
I’ve been listening to X Ambassadors, The Amazons or Welshly Arms, great bands. If you ask each member of the band they will tell you different bands.
Why do you think people should pick up one of your records or come and see you live, and what can people expect from one of your shows?
People say that our music has positive feelings, and you can find some songs that make you dance, others that make you think or cry. You’ll find great guitars, drums and bass, with synths and a melodic voice. It blends modern music with anthemic choruses.
If you go to one our shows, they are energetic and emotional. There’s a communion between the audience and the band. We make people sing and jump with us, and we try to make it 100% enjoyable.
