Hey, thanks for talking to us. Could you tell us something about yourself that nobody knows?
There are some rumours going on in this band that our singers Max and David sometimes have a bath together and that it ended up in a threesome at one point. Also: we’ll probably have a bassist soon. Perhaps one of these three things turns out to be a lie.
What influences have gone into your sound recently?
We all listen to different stuff, which affects each of us in an individual way, but one current artist we all like and who probably influenced us is Sam Fender. And we all listen to a lot of Oasis right now. What a spirit! It seems like they mainly became famous because they didn’t just believe in it, they simply knew it.
What are you currently working on?
Our new song ‘Hiraeth’ is out now alongside a music video. It is about the feeling of longing for something you can’t really define. Sort of a search or quest – energetic, nostalgic and unfulfilled all at once – but in a good way. Check it out. Two more singles will follow in December – stay tuned!
What are your plans for the rest of the year?
By the end of 2020 and the beginning of next year we’ll be in the studio again already working on the next releases. We also have some live sessions coming up… there is plenty ahead of us and we’re super stoked. Although it was quite a tough year and not easy for us as a band, making music together plus all the stuff we’ve been working on is just dope and we can’t get enough of that.
Any top tips for getting through this difficult time?
1. Take a hairdryer and enjoy the hot air. Imagine you’re in the Caribbean where it never gets cold and life is easy. Take Venus as a hypothetical destination if you’re a hardcore escapist and really desperate.
2. Everything will be fine. You’re gonna rock this.
