It's time to get to know Highlives! We set the band 10 questions about their musical likes, tastes and guilty pleasures...

How would you describe your taste in music? 

Ben: Cliche as hell! Pop punk, metalcore and hardcore are some of my favourites, but I also love a whole bunch of hip hop, pop and more. 

Liam: Mine changes all the time. Pop punk has always been a genre that I’ve enjoyed, and definitely helped shape me growing up and pulled me through some tough times; of course it still does to this day. I’ve always had a soft spot for bands that are very emotionally driven, such as The Wonder Years and The Story So Far. Lately, I’ve been getting into some hip hop, and I’m really digging nothing, nowhere at the moment. I love the way he incorporates a range of different genres into his work; it’s a refreshing sound.

Who do you consider to be your favourite band and why? 

Ben: Blink 182. Their self titled album was the first album I owned myself, and no matter how many different styles of music I've become obsessed with, I've always come back to them.

Liam: The Wonder Years. I went through a phase, probably for a couple of years, maybe even longer, of listening to them on a daily basis. I’ve moved away from that for a little bit now, but they’ll always hold a special place in my heart. They’ve got a new album coming out soon which I’m super stoked about. 

Who is the best live band you’ve ever seen? 

Ben: I can’t even remember half of the bands that I've seen live, but both times I've seen Good Charlotte, they completely blew me away! 

What is the one song that you could listen to forever? 

Ben: I don't think there is any song I could listen to forever; I always get obsessed and over listen for a few months and then get sick of it.
