It’s time to get to know Adam, vocalist of Skies In Motion! We set Adam 10 questions about his musical taste, likes and guilty pleasures.
How would you describe your taste in music?
Weird. I can go from listening to 80/90/00s Pop to Talk Music to Deathcore, but I’m pretty much a sucker for anything good and catchy. Currently listening to Issues, Paramore and Childish Gambino a lot.
Who do you consider to be your favourite band and why?
Dance Gavin Dance, there’s just no one like them and they make me happy. I started listening to them in College and I would just listen to them for the whole lesson and I just love the way their music makes me feel. There’s nothing else like it.
Who is the best live band you’ve ever seen?
Underoath. There are a load of bands I could say for this, but Underoath played ‘They’re Only Chasing Safety‘ and “Define The Great Line” in their entirety and it was perfect. I’ve probably listened to those albums more than anything. If I was allowed to say one more I would pick The Elijah playing their entire album with a string quartet, they only did it once ever and I was there.
What is the one song that you could listen to forever?
Alien Ant Farm – Movies
When I moved school in year 2001 I was really nervous about meeting a school full of new kids and feeling self- conscious so I used to play this song in my head the whole time to keep me happy.
What album, if any, was a turning point in your ‘musical life’ and why?
Linkin Park – Hybrid Theory is the reason I listen to metal and the reason I’m a vocalist. I remember as a kid feeling lonely in a cold grey town, way too early to be thinking about that kind of stuff but I got the Hybrid Theory CD and I felt something. It reached out to me, it understood me! And it definitely started me on the best path in my life, music. I remember screaming it in the back of my sisters car before I could even scream and she used to laugh at me.
In 3 words, what makes a good album or song?
Memorable, catchy, unique
A festival or a gig? Why?
A festival, festivals are great, you can hang out with everyone, get merry and just go and watch loads of cool bands outside. Also, you discover new bands that you never knew existed. I’ve discovered loads of bands that I love just from wandering around festivals.
Who would be your 3 dream festival headliners?
Bring Me The Horizon, Queen, Bruno Mars
Who are the best new band you’ve discovered lately that everyone should know about?
Tahoe – amazing band from France / UK. They need to get picked up now! I’ve been friends with their vocalist Jonny for a long time, we’ve played in bands together for years, the guy is truly talented. I remember at a show we were playing, he sung “How To Save A Life” on karaoke in the other room and the whole stopped in awe and were watching him amazed!
What band or artist is your secret, or not so secret, guilty pleasure?
Panic! At The Disco – Wouldn’t even call it a guilty pleasure
