Malibu Hot Flush have released their debut single, Make It Matter. We asked them the BIG questions . . .

The duo, who fuse elements of electronic post-punk, new wave, Euro disco, indie, techno and industrial genres, is a serendipitous collaboration between singer and guitarist Luigi Tiberio and modular artist Tim Bleasdale.

"Make It Matter was the first thing we ever played together," says Tiberio. "I think we were surprised that the track had something; we just wanted to rock out and see what happened.

"I guess we did not expect much from a guy playing random synth arpeggiators and a guy layering wonky guitar sounds on top of it."

They recorded Make It Matter and other tracks with Mogwai's producer, Tony Doogan, at Glasgow’s Castle of Doom Studios. It’s also had some solid involvement from Chris Geddes of Belle and Sebastian.

Tell us three things about yourself . . .

Our single Make it Matter came out of our first ever jam session. My cat, Gavin, thinks my greatest achievement is building my own portable modular synth case. When I was at college, we broke the world record for building the largest ever pyramid out of soft-drink cans

How would you describe your music?

Post-industrial electro indie pop.

Who are your musical inspirations?

I'm from Manchester so I have to be inspired by Factory records, it the law, but we both have eclectic taste. I love a bit of Estonian minimalism like Arvo Pärt but also anyone who can properly rock out with a synth like Add N to X or Boy Harsher.

What was the first gig you ever went to?

Goth rockers The Mission, which was Wayne Hussy from Sisters of Mercy.

What was the first record you ever bought?

Led Zeppelin IV - still got it

What’s your favourite song right now?

Low - Just Make it Stop.

Favourite lyric of all time?

"I will surprise you some time, I’ll come around, when you’re down" Untitled - Interpol.

If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Fotzepoliti by the Cocteau Twins.
