Introducing...South View Juniors

YMC chats to Ben from South View Juniors

YMC: Tell us something about the band, how did you meet, how long have you been playing together?

SVJ: We named the band after our former junior school which sadly has now been knocked down. We were all good school friends and decided to form a band in late 2007. We started out as a 3 piece playing acoustically in and around the local area, but soon became a full 5 piece.

YMC: How would you describe your music? Who writes the songs?

SVJ: Old school 60s & 70s Rock & Roll with a slightly modern sound, influenced by the Brit Pop Era. We put a modern twist on an old formula. We all write songs for the band, but Jon seems to write the most!

YMC: What are you listening to at the moment?

SVJ: Courteeners, Doves, Twisted Wheel, Paul Weller, Foo fighters, (Too much to list all on here - we are all music
mad!)

YMC: What can people expect from a live show?

SVJ: A very entertaining evening with great music and a great atmosphere/vibe

YMC: Do you have any recording plans?

SVJ: Currently recording our 2nd EP, which should be ready sometime in June, plus hoping to release a single in the summer.

YMC: What are your plans for the near future?

SVJ: To support well established acts and play at larger venues. We are headlining the large main room at The Cockpit on 20th Aug.
