The GigRadio Podcast is back a lot quicker with its second episode than the lengthy wait between the Pilot and Episode 1. This month it comes to you from Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, where we chatted to local band Windrunner.
We met up with guitarists Trung and Nam at a cool little bar in Hanoi to find out a bit more about the band, who we first interviewed around the release of their debut album in October 2018, and the metal scene in Vietnam and Asia.
We also played new music from Chiasmata, our current New Band of the Week, fellow UK band Marisa and the Moths. There’s also new music from a brand new band to us in Bottomshelf, whose intriguing “dreamo” sound fuses shoegaze and metal.
Fair warning that some of the sound quality isn’t amazing – we recorded the interview on a pub balcony on my laptop – but hopefully you enjoy the conversation with the guys.
