In just under an hour’s time, I will be interviewing Brooklyn’s wave-making indie trio, Vivian Girls, before their gig at the Proud Galleries in Camden. My dictaphone is ready; my questions are laid out neatly in a notebook; even the regulation checked-shirt has made an appearance: in short, I am majorly charged up in anticipation of what will be my first ever band interview!
The interview and gig will be written up into a lead feature for the student newspaper, but you can rest assured that I’ll also be posting up some thoughts on the evening here on the blog – maybe a photo, if you’re lucky.
If you’ve never heard of Vivian Girls, which is perfectly understandable, they are an all-female band, making shoegazey and reverb-drenched sweet pop songs that have set critics’ eyes alight. They’ve just been touring around Europe, and will be returning to the US next week, continuing the support of their eponymous debut. It’s a good ‘un, and it’s only 25 minutes long! That’s enough for now – I have a train to catch.
