We’ve written about Major Spark a few times over the past couple of years, and most recently we reviewed their single, ‘Birds Aren’t Real’. The utter bop of a track belies the serious questions we should all be asking ourselves, and if we’re not asking ourselves those questions, then maybe we should be asking Major Spark. So we did.
Based in Saint Petersburg, Russia, but born in a small town in Iran, singer songwriter and musician – and neurosurgeon – Kiani has probably packed more into his life than most of us would even dare to dream of doing. His new single, ‘I’ll Fly Away’, serves to highlight the situation in his homeland of Iran, as well as the attitudes in the FIFA World Cup, now being held in Qatar. We spoke to Kiani to get his thoughts, as well as to talk about his music.
Kit Vale, the project name of Canadian artist Jen Simpson, is a hard rocking muso whose single, ‘Pet’, we wrote about earlier this month. We loved Jen’s sound, and we wanted to get in deeper about her music, as well as her thoughts on women in rock music. Please check out our interview with Kit Vale below and let us know in the comments what you think!
