About: Streaming Lights

Streaming Lights: indie pop\rock\dance trio from Hull, UK played in E107 of the ArenaCast

These guys play powerful and funky dance-rock, so bright and incendiary that it's difficult to resist the desire to go dancing ;)
They have a lot of upcoming gigs in the UK, so check out their official site to find out the dates and venues!

1. How do you see yourself in 5 years? What is your main goal as a band?
In 5 years time we will hopefully still be making music that we, our mum and dad, and our few fans like. Our main goal is to play on Jools Holland! Seeing some of the crap on there, hopefully we have a good chance!

2. Can you name some peculiarities that define the music scene in your town/country?
The music scene in our City (Hull) is very Indie based. The local bands like to play music that was popular 5 years ago, guitar heavy, and lots of up and down movements. A couple of our favorite local bands are Street Parade and The Walls.

3. What do you think of episode 107? Which of the other featured songs do you like the most?
Episode 107 was ace, it was good to get someone else's opinion on our music. Although were still working more with the tools then the musical instruments.

4. Is there a story behind your song "Slush Fund Blues"?
Slush Fund Blues started life as a bass fill for a different song. We thought it was strong enough to build a whole new song around. Chris 'The Judge' Flynn got a fast paced, thumping drum beat behind it then Steve came up with the catch riff running over the top. That, layered up with some effects (or floor clunge) and the song evolved from there.

5. Please share your nearest plans. What are you currently working on?
We are currently at the start of our Summer tour. So far we've played Barton and Sunderland. Coming up is Cottingham, Welford, Hull, Glastonbury, Cambridge and many more. Check out our facebook page for more details.
New material is being written over the next few months and hopefully we will have another new release around October time.
