For those reader that haven’t heard of Wild Fruit Art Collective could tell us a bit about the band, your story?
We are currently barrelling down the m40 in our new tour vauxhall zafira with I love it by Kanye and Lil pump playing through a tiny USB speaker. Our drummer jake is submerged in all of our equipment and three days worth of chilli. Conor is driving for the first time ever and we are gripping the sides of the car hoping to our various deities that we don’t die today. Not like this.
Before this moment, we have released some gloomy music and suckled at the teat of eggy records, toured the UK relentlessly and are about to release our latest gloom pop masterpiece, “every conversation is a sale”
Who inspired you to get on stage and perform?
Robbie Williams b side “Knutsford city limits” was a formative influence for a third of the band, I haven’t bothered to ask the rest what they listen to.
Could you tell us a bit about the writing/recording of your latest single every conversation is a sale?
We drove down to Yaxley town hall and intentionally cooled the room down to 1 degree Celsius. Kristian bell from The Wytches provided the tape machine and we boshed it out in an evening whilst the locals played dungeons and dragons upstairs. I remember very little of the experience outside of the fact they locked all the cupboards in the kitchen and Ben got abducted by a ghost in the evening.
What is the most interesting venue you have performed at?
We once performed outside John Lewis in Liverpool, that was fun, other than that it’s the windmill and some posh birds living room one time.
What do you think is missing from today’s music industry?
Here at Artistic Echoes we are always on the look out for new artists, do you have anyone do recommend?
Beija flo, Jo mary, bill nickson, eyesore and the jinx, Samurai kip and the ohms to start you off.
What plans do you have for the rest of the year?
A load of gigs to celebrate the single release, then finishing our forthcoming Ep ready for next year.
