Bellusira Vs. I, Said The Sparrow
Crystal (Bellusira) questions Sean (I, Said The Sparrow)...
You guys are from Perth, a rich area for bands to come out of. Is the scene still thriving over there?
The scene is definitely thriving here. I've always thought that because we have a dwindling number of venues to perform at, bands are in a way forced to get their game to a higher level so there is a demand for them to play at these venues. It’s rare to go out in Perth and see a subpar performance.
What do you draw your inspiration from for your music?
I draw most of my inspiration from personal experiences, situations I’ve seen friends in, or general observations on the human condition.
Any new releases on the horizon?
The first single off our debut EP will be out in the next few months, with the EP to drop midyear.
How can people get a hold of your music?
People can download our debut single I'm A Villain And I'm Online from iTunes or you can grab a hardcopy from us at shows.
Crutey from Saltar Hype is a pretty guy, what do you reckon his best features are?
Crutey is definitely pretty fly for a white guy. I'd say his best features are his legs, have you seen him in heels?
Sean (I, Said The Sparrow) questions Crystal (Bellusira)...
What vegetable would best describe your band?
Sweet potato or Kumara. Perfect blend of Australia and New Zealand and tastes delicious!
Would you rather have x-ray vision, Or, have tiny light sabers for fingernails?
X-ray vision so I can perve on Crutey from Saltar Hype. He is so hot right now!
If you could change places with someone in the band for 48 hours, who would you change with and what would you do?
I would pick to change with Vinny our guitarist. His guitars are so sexy and it is much safer for your health to be beside his Mesa than have it directed straight at you.
Kill, marry or shag? Kermit the Frog, Homer Simpson, Jabba the Hut.
Shag Homer Simpson. He would be a predator in the bedroom. Marry Kermit the Frog. I would like to be with a gentleman. Kill Jabba the Hut. Have no interest whatsoever in Star Wars!
Where does the band name Bellusira come from?
A photographer friend of ours referred to the band as beautiful anger. We took two latin words Bellus (Beautiful) and Ira (Anger) and bang! We became Bellusira.
