Envy And Other SinsTrue story, on the Envy And Other Sins MySpace page, the band claim to draw inspiration from the following things: Music. The Victorian Age. Stratford-upon-Avon. Gentlemen of the Realm. Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Damsels in Distress. Wrought Iron. Steam Power. Punctuation. Expensive Guitars, Sometimes Played Loudly. Unusual Rural Hobbies. H.G. Wells. Pianos. Clock Towers. Horse Power. Silent Movies. Ancient Pornography and Capital Letters.

You'll notice Channel 4 and their television show about unsigned bands don't seem to get a mention. Maybe because they didn't have television during the age of steam...

Anyway, we set ChartBlog's own Emily Wood off to interview the band, and find out exactly how committed to their arcane influences they really are. Here's how it went...

Here's the video for their song 'Highness', which is out now...
