Anchor Down

Anchor Down

in English by

We started this band quite a while back, in 2012, but didn’t really get serious until this year. We were all friends before we started the band and just decided to get together and jam and it just went from there really.

What song of yours is the one you like the most?

Our favorite song from our first EP is probably Hindsight, it’s just a really bouncy stereotypical song and it’s fun to play live.

How do you write your music?

Usually either Jonny or Danny create a chord progression or write some lyrics and we all get together and each add our own bit of input and variation until we had a full song.

What influences do you have?

We all have different influences from different genres, there’s obviously the main ones like The Story So Far, ROAM, State Champs and loads of other standard pop punk bands, but then there’s some influence from bands like Brand New, American Football etc.

What´s the craziest experience you have had with your project?

There’s a lot to choose from for this topic, but our craziest experience was probably when we were recording our upcoming video. We headed up to this old castle in our hometown that sits on this massive hill and we got Tom to ride down it while lying down on a skateboard. He bailed and ended up skidding down most of the hill on his arse so that was pretty funny.  Something to look for when it finally comes out!

What plans do you have next?

As we mentioned we have a music video on the way so we’ll announce that soon. Mainly though, we’ve been working on our new EP and we’re all really proud of it so far. We’re in the studio right now and it’s shaping up nicely, sounds years ahead of the last one and we’ve got a producer working on it who’s a sound guy so we reckon it’ll be worth the wait when it’s finally released!

Mention something you don´t like about your project

What don’t we like about the band? Tom.

Mention the biggest sacrifice you did for your project.

Probably putting our money into it and travelling around is probably the biggest sacrifice for the band, it gets in the way of some things but it’s ultimately worth it!

What band, music project or solist from your city do you like? (Why?)

Coast to Coast are from our general area and they’re sound. Just dropped a fire new single too so we reckon everyone should check that out.

If your project was a car, what model would it be?

If we were a car…
Probably a Reliant Robin. About as accurate as it gets.
