PD: What type of artist are you?

WS: As an alt rock band we take our influences from bands like Cassyette, The Nova twins, Wargasm and Bring Me The Horizon.  Our emphasis to write pop music melodies but with heavy guitars.  What we try to do when recording is capture our live sound and energy.

 

PD: Tell us a brief history of yourself.

WS: The band in its current form has been together for about a year.  In that time Our music has received a lot of support from BBC Introducing.   We’ve been developing as a live act at venues such as the Dublin Castle, The Good Mixer, The Hope and Anchor and The Fiddler in London, as well as The Prince Albert and The Brunswick in our home town of Brighton.  We’ve got an exciting run of dates coming up in the summer that include The Green Door Store and The Concorde 2 in Brighton as well as dates around the UK.

 

PD: Who are your musical and non-musical influences?

WS: We take a lot of our non musical influences from horror films, in terms of our musical influences we take inspiration from writers who have a theatrical element to their songwriting such as Kate Bush, Melanie Martinez, as well as the kind of energy you get from Slipknot gigs.

WS: Our goal is to continue to grow our fan base among the Gen Z population who have already shown us great support on TikTok.

 

PD: Who writes your songs, what are they about?
