What informs your music and songwriting?
Nostalgia, romance, heartbreak, jealousy, lust, sadness – those blue, red and green emotions, baby.

How have you evolved as an artist over the years?
We’re always learning and being influenced by new stuff, trying to evolve. Maybe sounding a bit more mature but we don’t wanna grow up just yet.

What are you up to at the moment artistically?

Writing lots – we have an EP on the way and we’re writing the album right now. It’s nearly there!

What’s on your rider?
The classics – hummus, crisps, fruit, water, lots of beer. Olly’s been trying to demand some whisky recently but nobody’s having it.

Tell us your most embarrassing or surreal experience.
We were supporting Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott one night, in Manchester actually, and as we were walking on stage in front of like 2,000 people I slipped on the drum mat with two full beer bottles in my hand and spilled them all over myself. Got a massive “wheeeyyy” from the crowd. That was pretty embarrassing.

What song do you wish you’d written?
Probably Sound and Vision by David Bowie, or Let’s Dance. That shit will never die.

What’s your worst lyric?
We tried to write a Christmas song last year and the chorus was like “You can’t give me what’s true/or put it on top of the tree/all I really want is too far away from me/thiiis christmaaaas” – that’s some smelly cheese right there.
