How would you describe your taste in music?
Their play on melodies and lyrics always intrigues us, so we do our best to find what makes their recordings so special and try to apply it to the noise we make (dashing in some riffs for good measure).
Who do you consider to be your favourite band and why?
We grew up listening to his music and he has a huge influence on our melodies. More recently, we’ve been listening to a lot of modern physch stuff like dr dog and dam gila etc. They’re a bit more chilled out than we are, but the melodies in there are awesome
Who is the best live band you’ve ever seen?
They have a huge influence on our sound and live performances, they’re easily the best two-piece out there.
What is the one song that you could listen to forever?
I (Dan) can remember being blown away by the opening guitar riff – it sounded like a motorbike to my innocent mind.
What album, if any, was a turning point in your ‘musical life’ and why?
In 3 words, what makes a good album or song?
A festival or a gig? Why?
Who would be your 3 dream festival headliners?
Who are the best new band you’ve discovered lately that everyone should know about?
His solo album has everything you could wish for – great melodies, dirty guitars and a little bit of psychedelia.
What band or artist is your secret, or not so secret, guilty pleasure?
I once stumbled into the band on a drunken night out in Newcastle and slurred this delicate line to their lead singer:
‘Everyone thinks your band and album is shit… but I think you guys will be bigger than The Cure….’. lol at that!
