Who are you excited to see at Sound City?
There’s a few we’re buzzin to see at Sound City like The Kooks, The Amazons, The Japanese House, The Vryll Society. There’s loads.

What’s your best festival memory?
The best memory for us was when we played Strawberry Festival in Shanghai and we got off stage and we’re swarmed for pictures by people who’d just watched us and were taking pictures for about 20 minutes on the other side of the planet. It was mental!

What are your festival essentials?
Wellies, sleeping, tent, dry shampoo, women’s roll-on and mates.

How does playing a festival differ from playing your own gig?
The crowds are the main difference. At gigs the people are there for that one event whereas festivals are very community based and people go with their mates for the weekend. There’s even more of a social aspect to it than a gig.

What’s your favourite part of playing a festival?
The best part is actually playing the gig for us because of the crowds and everyone is just there to have a good time. It’s not so much about if they’ve heard of you before or if they even like you. If you play a good set you’re reyt.
