Tell us three things about yourself . . .
I live with my dog Harry. I got my first tattoo at 15, cause my dad didn't want to get one done by himself. My coffee of choice is an Americano with almond milk. But don't tell Jess; she's allergic.
How would you describe your music?
Who are your musical inspirations?
Bombay Bicycle Club, The Strokes, Pixies.
What was the first gig you ever went to?
Aside from local stuff, it was One Night Only at Joiners, Southampton. Don't pretend you didn't fricken’ love that song.
What was the first record you ever bought?
I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose - Bombay Bicycle Club. I first heard Always Like This on NME TV and went straight to HMV.
What’s your favourite song right now?
Under Control - The Strokes.
Favourite lyric of all time?
Maybe this Weezer one: "Acidification wiped out the tiger shark, let's try to save their souls, and trust the man with the Torah".
If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Slop - Forth Wanderers. That song is so beautifully addictive.
Where can people find your music/more information?
We're on the usual digital platforms, but if you're into experiencing life in its purest forms, you gotta hear it at a gig or on vinyl. Which is lucky, cause we're on vinyl and we do many gigs.
