Ahead of their headline show, this Friday (19th May) at The Lounge on Springfield St, we catch up with with Mo Molyneux, Guitar & Vocals of SPILT to find out more. The showcase is brought to you by Psymmetry Records, read more about them here.
First and foremost, who are the people and what is the story behind SPILT?
Me and Ron have been best mates since we were seven,I’ve always been in school bands but hated covering music so decided to teach him bass. We started in a band called Accepting April changed our names to Spilt when we decided to go psych/punk. Our old drummer left after differences in taste of music and we found josh at Beamfest he left his old band to join us. And that’s were the story really begins.
Acid baby and morphine queen I had wrote just before we found josh. But having josh give the songs the backbone we needed.
So the 2 tracks you guys have released, ‘Acid Baby’ and ‘Morphine Queen’ , where are the influences behind this tracks?
Acid baby is pretty self explanatory.
But morphine queen is my ultimate lovesong.
Its about being so obssessed with a girl that its unhealthy and makes you feel sick when shes not with you which I thought morphine would be a good metaphor to fit the feeling and situation.
What’s next for SPILT? Tell us about your plans for the near future?
Upcoming plans are to gig gig gig, spread the word and write and record. There’s a couple on its way but guess yous have to wait.
Plans for friday night is to hopefully make the youth realise that there is a massive movement going on around them and pull them into it. As well as get wrecked and celebrate.
Who else should you be checking out?
Slowhandclap or Psyblings of course. The floormean are our recent favourite as we played with them a Get Into This awards and they completely melted our brains.
