What informs your music and songwriting?
General life usually influences most of our music – relationships, family, experiences.

How have you evolved as a band over the years?
As a new band and constantly being on tour, we are always learning and evolving into the best version of us we can be.

What are you up to at the moment artistically?
We are on tour promoting our debut album Finding it Hard to Smile, which was released in August. Making our show the best it can be every night and making the new songs come to life is where our heads at right now.

What’s on your rider?
Just usual things like a fruit plate, cold cuts, chips and salsa, queso, sparkling water. We have a puppy on it – surprisingly we’ve gotten one a few times. They make everything better.

Tell us your most embarrassing or surreal experience.
A surreal experience for us is probably being able to come on tour here in the UK and then over to Europe. It’s pretty amazing to play music in a new country with totally new culture every day.

What song do you wish you’d written?
Probably Jolene by Ray LaMontagne. It’s absolutely perfect.

What’s your worst lyric?
No comment.
