Following their Yeah Buddy DIY gig, we spoke to Springfield Elementary about the Manchester music scene and their plans for the future.
Could you tell us a bit about how you guys formed your band?
I (Billy) wanted to start a band for ages but for some reason, a drummer who was free was hard to find. So I turned to Facebook and Chris was delivered to me in a mesh basket on my front door. I’ve been good friends with Brad and Liam for years from uni and knew they would always be keen for this and they started jamming with us a couple of weeks later.
Your performance seemed to blend a variety of genres. Do you think genres and classifying music is still important, or do you think nowadays it doesn’t matter so much?
We’re not thinking too far ahead at the moment. Just trying to write better and better songs, play some more gigs, then more people will be turned on to us when we start touring, and releasing stuff… Which will be very soon!
