Interviews: Primes


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Alternative Rock band Primes from the UK. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?

We wanted a one-word name, something powerful and symbolic. We think PRIMES is perfect because it represents where we’ve come from, where we are and we’re we will go. It’s symbolic of the hard work it took to get to where we are and now, we are in the PRIME of our musical career and collectively we are creating some, in our opinion, good music.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

We never planned to play a certain genre. We just got in a room and that’s what came out. Now we know what we sound like but that’s taken time to sculpt and form. At the same time we’re constantly changing and evolving and honing in on what makes a song “PRIMES”.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

Ollie had been playing in bands for years and Sarah was a solo artist and played in bands as well. Sarah was looking to start a new band and asked Ollie to play bass when we were on a night out in our home town. We’d known each other for years and supported one another as we have a number of mutual friends. Reece and Sarah are related and had already been jamming before asking Ollie to join. Ollie met Reece for the first time in our rehearsal studios but clicked straight away.

4. Each band member favorite band?

Ollie – Biffy Clyro

Sarah – Placebo

Reece – Bear Tooth

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Ollie writes the lyrics in the band, and each song has its own theme. They’re usually inspired by events or moments in life and he tries to encapsulate that in the lyrics. Dreamer and I is about a conversation Ollie had with a friend in regards to mental health. No matter how dark it feels sometimes, you never know what’s around the corner. The song is about hope and self-belief.

6. Where was your last gig?

Our last gig was in Stramash in Edinburgh raising money for Edinburgh's Womens Aid. It was a packed-out crowd and a amazing energy.

7. Where would you like to play?

We’d love to take the show on the road and see the world and play in every country we can.

8. Who would you like to support?

We’d love to support the Foo Fighters, they’re one of the biggest and best rock bands on the planet and Dave Grohl is a hero.

9. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?

Not yet, but sometimes bigger shows and festivals can be nerve racking. We always have a band chat before we go on and get each other psyched up for the show. Believe in yourself and just have fun. If you make a mistake, who cares?! 

10. What bands have inspired you the most?

We all take influence from different artists personally but as a collective we all love Foo Fighters, Biffy Clyro, Feeder, Catfish and the Bottlemen and Kings of Leon.

11. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

Nothing too weird yet thankfully! We’ve signed some body parts, don’t know if that counts as weird.

12. What do you think of your fans?

THE BEST. Our fans are absolutely amazing and follow us all over. We’ve got a hardcore group who, without, we wouldn’t be the same band and we couldn’t do what we do. Thanks to all of them, we love them all.

13. What do you think of our site?

Your site is great. It gives people the chance to see the latest unsigned/signed content and there’s links to music, articles and it covers such a wide array of genres.
