Brunchbox answer 10 Questions | Interview

brunchbox band 2020

Learn a bit about the band BrunchBox as they take on our 10 Questions!

Where did the band name come from?

Andrew: The depths of Gabriel’s mind. We initially thought about lunchbox as a name since it had a nice ring to it, but that was taken… so BrunchBox it was/is. We all thought it was stupid at the time and still do, but we couldn’t think of anything better and now we kind of like it. That seems to happen a lot with us!

Where is your hometown, and give us a reason/fact why we should visit it?

Andrew: Sunny Sheffield, we’re pretty sure it’s still one of, if not the greenest city in Europe and the peaks are on our doorstep. Plus there’s legendary venues like the leadmill, plus west street live has the maddest selection of drinks you’ll ever see.

What encouraged you to want to get into music?

Gabriel: It was my mum, taking me to Glastonbury 6 times and constantly having a record on in the house definitely moulded me to love music.

Joe: To get some fat stacks.

Andrew: My Uncle is really musical and we made music together since I was really young, I ended up taking guitar lessons and even though I was pretty on and off with it for a few years, I’ve just always come back to music.

Best venue you’ve ever played and why?

Andrew: The way we’ve created our music we’ve not ventured into the live music scene with BrunchBox yet. We’d probably need about 10 more members for some of the new tracks!

One band/artist you’d love to support?

Gabriel: Beyoncé because we’re bound to get a few fans?

Andrew: A dream act to support would be someone huge like Arctic Monkeys, especially coming from Sheffield and I’ve still not seen them live! Or even more out there Brockhampton because they inspired us majorly and they seem like a proper funny bunch.

Joe: Drake.

What’s the greatest love song ever written?

Sea of Love – Cat Power (This one really made us think a LOT)

The best album that you’ve heard this year?

Punisher – Phoebe Bridgers

Most underrated band/artist of all time?

Saba? Such a hard question!

Which three artists/bands should we be looking out for? (Musically, not for Criminal Offences)

Special Interest, Hot Dreams, Mei

Bonus Question – Favourite vegetable and why!?

Joe: Carrot because it tastes nice and crunchy.
Andrew: Sweetcorn is the only vegetable in my eyes, just cover in butter, 10/10. 
Gabriel: Cauliflower, because cheese?
