An Interview With |St. Buryan|

Evening people, as promised on the Full Volume Twitter page, here is your Monday night content in the form of some words from the immensely talented St. Buryan following the release of their brand new single ‘Giving In’, a track that packs a punch, a proper banger.

St. Buryan were kind enough to give us some more insight into themselves as a band, their new music, and what is in store for the future! Here is what they had to say:

Who are St. Buryan?

St. Buryan are Ben (vocals), Callum (guitar), Eddie (bass), Nathan (guitar/vocals) and Rhys (drums/percussion), and together we make up an indie-pop/rock band from Newcastle upon Tyne and Sunderland. Essentially, we’re a group of best mates who decided to have a go at writing original music together and playing it live. I think it’s fair to say it’s taken us a lot further than we thought, and hopefully that continues!

Your new track ‘Giving In’ is out now, how excited were you for people to hear your new single?

We’re incredibly excited for people to hear it, but at the same time we’re also very nervous. It’s our first release under Sound-Hub Records, and we’ve been sitting on the track since August. There’s no question that the production/recording quality of the track is bigger and better than anything we’ve released yet. We’ve played it three or four times live so far, and it’s already established itself as a “live favourite”, so I think it should go down well. Hopefully it can meet (if not exceed) the expectations.

Who do you like to to take inspiration from as music artists?

I know it’s one hell of a cliche, but we can’t really narrow down our inspirations as a unit. Individually, we all listen to a lot of different things and take inspiration from the artists we love, but the music involved there is pretty eclectic. We mash them all together when we’re writing new material and, there we have, it’s a St. Buryan track!

You have announced your biggest live show to date at Think Tank? in Newcastle on April 27th, how are you feeling on the lead up to your biggest show yet?

Similar to what we said before! Excited, but nervous. It’s our biggest headline show to date, and we’re hoping we’re going to make it a night for people to remember. We could’ve went for a safer/smaller venue that we knew we’d sell out, but we wanted to challenge ourselves. If it pays off, it’s going to be huge. We’re working on a lot of new material that we’re eager to show off. Tickets have sold really well already, and the gig is still almost three months away. So everything is looking positive. Here’s hoping we can deliver!

Finally, what can we expect from the future of St. Buryan

Who knows? You can never really predict what life is going to throw at you, especially with music. We’re playing our first live dates outside of the North East over the next couple of months, and we’re really hoping we can gain some more attention with the new music and the big Newcastle headliner. We love playing and writing together. With some hard work and a little bit of luck, hopefully we can do it a lot more.
