We Are The Interzone

We Are The Interzone

Glasgow’s answer to Arctic Monkeys, Interzone are a hard rock band who’s popularity has sky-rocketed since they formed in the summer of 2012.

I’ve seen them live a fair amount of times, and they’re one of the most exciting new bands to emerge from the local scene. Always attracting a big crowd at every gig they play, they easily capture the attention of everyone in the venue, and for good reason.

For a fairly young band, they have an incredible stage presence, in particular frontman Oli Sibley. Not only has he got a great voice but an onstage energy and presence most frontmen could only dream of.

The songs are fantastic too. Left Alone In The Dark has a brilliant riff running through it, equipped with a huge chorus and an epic solo. Higher is a personal favourite for me; great bassline, loud guitars, pounding drums and a chorus you can’t help sing along to as Oli tells you “We’re gonna go downtown and get a little bit higher”.

All in all, Interzone are brilliant and if you have the chance, definitely check them out. One band I’m tipping for the top.
