Ryan Anderton chats as the four piece gear up to release their new single Fade and play a string of dates, including the Deaf Institute, Manchester, 30 Oct and the Warehouse, Wakefield, 23 Nov
What informs your music and songwriting?
Our personal experiences and things we witness going on around us. We usually chat about the concept of a song and get each other’s views on a subject. That really helps with lyrics.
How have you evolved as a band over the years?
Too many things to list, haha! We are musically tighter than we used to be, we dress better and we perform with a lot more confidence.
What are you up to at the moment artistically?
We are constantly creating, writing songs, video concepts and evolving the visuals of our live performance! We just love making ideas turn into something real.
What’s on your rider?
Honey, ginger, tequila and foooooooood.
Tell us your most embarrassing or surreal experience.
We haven’t had too many embarrassing moments yet apart from looking back at old photos! Plenty of surreal moments though and the most surreal moment so far is playing in front of huge audience in a sold-out arena supporting Jake Bugg.
What song do you wish you’d written?
We wish we had written Tears in Heaven and so many more.
What’s your worst lyric?
“You are incredible. “Love the sentiment but it’s just a little too cheesy, even for us.
