With their very first track release, Crow’s Feet have set their stall out early. With an unusual but infectious sound, they’re certainly not the most mainstream of artists, but they will get under your skin. Which makes them perfect candidates for an interview, to see what makes them tick.

  1.   Where and when did you first discover your interest in music? 

 

Busted live VHS I had, I saw Charlie the singer do a drum solo. I was hooked.

 

  1.   What are your main ambitions in the industry? 

 

For people to listen to my music, just that really.

 

  1.   When did you start writing your own songs/music? 

 

Probably about 2 years ago. I really started to get into guitar and making melodies.

 

  1.   What would you say is your music career highlight to date? 

 

There are a few, but this one tops it I think. When I was 15 I was in a band with two others who were my best friends called Sleepyheads. We got signed to a management company and played a bunch of gigs and recorded an album. Then got to play in Switzerland, Travel accommodation and everything paid for for 4 days. That was pretty cool.

 

But I have an actual career in music, I run a recording studio called Old Mill Studios. Does that count?

 

  1.   Who will we hear in your songs? What are your influences? 

 

Well lots of people play on this so everyone’s influences are different. At the time I was listening a lot to Beck’s new album ‘Morning Phase’ it’s amazing. And also a lot of Kurt Vile.

 

  1.   What’s the most important thing you’d want to tell people about your current release? 

 

If you’re too cool to like Coldplay, this is for you.

 

  1.   Who else can you recommend from your genre or local area for people to have a listen to? 

 

My local area, I suggest. WOMPS, Alabaster Jones and The Lapelles ( They have one of the best live shows I’ve ever seen)

From ‘my’ genre, I would say Mogwai, Ólafur Arnalds, radiohead (King of limbs)

 

  1.   Any gigs coming up? 

 

Not officially planned yet. But I think in April I will.
