Tell us three things about yourself . . .
We are happy but overwhelmed, determined but easily distracted, happiest when making music, and bad at doing what we're asked.
How would you describe your music?
Enthusiastically, usually with a drink in one hand and a pile of records under the other.
Who are your musical inspirations?
Beach House, Neil Young, The Folksmen, Emily's Nana, Dave Fanning, Leagues O'Toole, Tinnitus.
What was the first gig you ever went to?
Emily - Peter Gabriel. Kieran - Radiohead. Says a lot really.
What was the first record you ever bought?
Emily - A Sinead O'Connor album, I can't remember. Kieran - Nirvana Unplugged in NY or The Bends.
What’s your favourite songs right now?
Emily - Houseplants and Denise Chaila, Kieran - Free in the Knowledge by The Smile, a New Irish Music playlist, new SOAK songs, and whatever the latest FIFA records tune is.
Favourite lyric of all time?
Emily: "My Mother and her little brown jug, it held her milk and now it holds our memories."
Kieran: "One day I am gonna grow wings, A chemical reaction, Hysterical and useless..."
If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life, what would it be?
That would be horrible. Why are you doing this to us? Is it just playing non-stop? In this hellish scenario, John Cage's 4.33.
