We've been chatting to some great local musicians in a campaign to get more people supporting local original music. Here's 5 minutes with LYNCHS
Who are you?
We are LYNCHS. A four piece, post-punk band founded upon sibling rivalry and childhood friendships. Before this crisis, we enjoyed a sell-out, headline show at Manchester's Deaf Institute and BBC 6 Music's Chris Hawkins described us as 'definitely ones to watch in 2020'.
What 3 words best describe your sound?
How does being from Wigan/the Northwest influence your music?
We feel Wigan is the perfect musical melting pot. We are close enough to both Manchester and Liverpool to draw from their rich musical dynasties, without turning into replica Oasis/ Beatles cover bands with naff haircuts! We also have the most progressive council in the UK that actively supports and champions its artists.
What role do you think music plays in society?
Music allows people to escape. It can be the soundtrack to their good times and a force that gets them through the bad.
If you could a magic wand, how would you change the music industry?
I’d make it illegal for bad bands to reform!
