RGM Introducing – Socially Awkward

What made you decide to start a band / become an artist?

Well, we noticed that our society has been declining every day since the start of time. Over the past year or so we all have noticed it a hell of a lot more, with Brexit in dividing people, and CV-19 divided us even more.

We wanted to write about thing’s that pissed us off for a form of Therapy. Ideally we wanted to write about the negatives in our system and turn them into positivity.

After doing this over a period of time, we needed more excuses to do something good with our lives. The last year has taken a toll on us all individually and wanted to try and help others like us.

So tell me a little bit about you and what you like doing for fun?
Netflix, Gaming, Parties and Holidays.

How do you think the government has looked after the the night time economy / live gig circuit?

WOW! I think I could be here all day, will it make a difference? I hope so!? So the way I see the government doing anything worthwhile in the same way I think most people think. Why do we have these people in power?
Honestly! constructively, we are all on the same page with the fact that they are not doing enough for the NHS let alone the Music Industry. 

I think if they wanted to try and at least combat the developing problem in our society with Mental Health. Then they may think of combining the 2 together.

Without live music and atmosphere in our lives, our Mental Health develops into something a lot worse. I think it’s about Industries coming together and collaborating on how we can create change for everyone, instead of thinking about their own agenda.

The bottom line is: I don’t think they do anything for any economy other than theirs! And it doesn’t really matter what time of the day they’re doing it on..They’re gonna fuck it up!

What’s one question you’re sick of being asked when interviewed?

Who is the loud one? or who is the cheeky one? like we are some generic band put together by puppets.

What is the unsigned scene in Exeter like at the minute?

The scene in Exeter is very supportive they have a great venue called The Phoenix, Where they hold lots of different kinds of creative events. The beach shows are always fun in the summer, the cavern is a place we will play when we go on tour.

We may do one-offs either there or The Phoenix. I really hope they are doing well, the owners are really friendly and the studio connected is a lot of fun recording in.

What good bands are coming out of Exeter at the minute? 

Witterquick – They got some bangerzzz!

How easy or difficult do you find picking up new fans to come to your gigs?

I don’t think anything is easy, we just hope people can enjoy what we are doing and, have fun at our shows with us.

Who is inspiring you at the minute?

We all have been listening to Fever 333 recently Simon Neil – Everything he writes is pure genius, his a big inspiration of ours.

If your fans could remember one thing about you what would it be?
FUN

Name a four-piece band made up of legends – who would be in it? (drummer, bass, lead singer etc)

Dave Grohl, Ian D’sa, Synyster Gates, Flea and Chris Cornell

If you could play any music festival which would it be?

Warped tour!

Best gig you’ve been to that you weren’t playing? 

MarsVolta!

Who would you like to duet with?

Kim Jong Un, id think we’d have a real blast.

What makes you stand out as an artist?

We have had many comments about the sound, artwork, and production.

What’s your favorite song to play live and why?

‘Follow’ is a good song to warm up to, but ‘Castaway’ is the one where we all seem to have a lot of fun.

Tell me about your new single and how it came about?

We just wanted to write about that feeling you get when you feel discouraged by someone.

Is there anything else you would like to share with the world?

We hope you enjoy the tracks online, follow us on our socials, and hope to see you at a show in the future!

Thanks for doing us today folks, all the best and keep in touch.
Thank you so much Carl! We really appreciate the opportunity and hope to keep in touch with you in the future!
