In your home town, what is your local indie scene like and do they pay you for live gigs?

G: Being London our hometown of course there are thousands of bands and a huge music scene so it’s really hard to get noticed and claim payments, but in the last few months we’re reached an interesting level in our career and we’ll have to see where it takes us.

Tell me about the best and worst live gig you have had and why?

G: I couldn’t think of one best gig because we really liked a few and couldn’t choose one over the other, but I have to say playing in Zurich last October was really cool.

The atmosphere was really exciting and we were treated amazingly; we even had a backstage assistant and the venue staff were all so professional.

The worst gig, we all agree, was in northern Italy. It was in a small club with loads of constant technical problems. We tried to go on for as long as we could but eventually had to stop the gig and because of that the people chased us out of town. It was quite a misunderstanding.

What is the most important thing about your music and why is it important to you?

G: The intriguing aspect of it, the innovative sound. Some songs are like fresh air when turning down a car window, and a lot of people all over the world are craving for that.

What are the biggest obstacles you face as a band?

G: Being given the opportunity to prove ourselves and have someone to just sit down and listen to what we do.

The music scene nowadays is oversaturated with millions of bands and it’s really hard to get the attention you deserve.
