Where and when did you first discover your interest in music?
We first discovered our musical interests when we were teenagers growing up at home together, we got well into early RHCP and Led Zeppelin so we learnt instruments and began to jam out some of their tunes.
What are your main ambitions in the industry?
Our main ambitions at the moment are to play at major festivals and get national radio play, although we have just been added to the T In The Park bill this year and recently got our first BBC 6 Music play from Steve Lamacq, we will continue to push for more plays and more festivals.
When did you start writing your own songs/music?
We started writing our own songs shortly after we learned our instruments, this was with the help of our father who is a music teacher.
What would you say is your music career highlight to date?
The highlight of our musical career so far must be playing at a sold out “Wide Days” music convention in Edinburgh, or supporting The 1975.
Who will we hear in your songs? What are your influences?
I suppose our music could sit well beside the likes of Jamie T, Catfish & The Bottlemen and The Cribs.
We have a wide range of influences which span from early funk and soul, to bands such as Led Zep, Hendrix, RHCP, QOTSA and Arctic Monkeys.
What’s the most important thing you’d want to tell people about your current release?
We feel as if it is our strongest work yet.
Who else can you recommend from your genre or local area for people to have a listen to?
There are lots of good bands around central belt Scotland, some of our favourites are Young Fathers, King Eider and Universal Thee.
