Time Spent Breathing

Fiesta Minor’s EP, Time Spent Breathing, is due out in Spring 2013

With the release of their new EP due very soon, I interviewed Ewan McAleer, singer and bassist of  Glasgow band Fiesta Minor.

If you could describe Fiesta Minor’s music in one word. what would that one word be?
Miserable.

Your new EP’s called Time Spent Breathing, can you tell us a bit about it?
It’s a completely different (and better) record than our last one. It’s far more intense and a lot louder and heavy than anything we’ve done before. We’re all really proud of it and can’t wait to get it out.

What’s been the best gig you’ve played so far?
Probably our record release show last year. That show was nuts. Our friend Dan put it on for us and packed the venue out, people were crowd surfing, stage diving and singing along. It was the first time that had happened for us and we were really taken aback by it. That gig was humbling as much as it was fun.

Who is your biggest musical influence?
That’s a really hard question, we all have varied tastes. I think we’d be here all year if we were trying to decide on our biggest influence.

And finally, Iron Man or Captain America?
Iron man. Obviously. No question.

Fiesta Minor are playing Bar Bloc in Glasgow tomorrow night – 4th April. It’s free, so get yourself down there! The band are also supporting Grader and Midnight Souls on Saturday 11th May at Audio.
