Interview - Kill’Em Charlie

- Hi guys and welcome to this interview. Tell us about your latest release Hazey.
Hazey is our most recent release, a stand alone single. It is a little slice of Kill’Em Charlie and a good introduction to what we’re all about. 

- How would you describe your sound?
Our sound is basically indie alt-rock with a little nod to Pop-Punk thrown in as well. 

- What do you write about?
The usual to be honest; heartbreak and things that happen on nights out. Generally I think we try to draw from our real lives as much as possible. We’ve not gone down the concept album route just yet. 

- What do you listen to when you are home?
Anything from The Beatles, Bowie or The Smiths to Peach Pit, Fontaines or Kneecap. 
We’re also partial to our Irish folk and 80’s Metal as well. 

- Your favourite live performance so far?
We recently played a gig in the Soundhouse in Dublin; our first gig since the pandemic began and our first ever with our new drummer Damon. So for those reasons alone it was a special night, as well as the fact that it was a sell out. Great crowd, was good to be back doing it, good vibes all round. 

- Tell us a funny story that happened in studio or on stage.
At that recent gig in Dublin just before one of our last songs (I’m Not Alone), our frontman Eoghan forgot to tune down. We got about 30 seconds in before he realised and we had to stop and restart. What kind of saved it though from just being awkward was his sheepish explanation of what had happened as he was tuning. 

- Your favourite albums?
American Idiot would be up there as a pretty formative album for us, as well as Definitely Maybe. Favourite Worst Nightmare by Arctic Monkeys, almost anything by Led Zep or The Beatles. Too many to mention! 

- A musician you would like to meet for a beer?
Either of the Gallagher brothers, or maybe Paolo Nutini. Kynsy says our frontman Eoghan!

- What would you ask backstage if you were the most important band on earth?
Same as we do now I’d imagine, cheap beer and even cheaper crisps. Maybe beamish on tap as an upgrade, and the company of Jose Mourinho as well as the cheap crisps. 

- What are your plans for the next future?
As many live performances as we can possibly manage in 2022 and we’ve a few studio related stuff coming out soon early in the new year as well so keep an eye out for that.
