What’s your most memorable gig and why?

Our first single launch in April in Hitchin. It meant so much to walk out on stage to a packed club 85,  to celebrate the birth of our first single:). But we have fun at every gig and every one is memorable in a way.

What’s your fan base like? What group of people would you say you appealed to most?

We have a mixed fan base to be honest, there's alot of young & older generations at our gigs which is pretty cool.

What’s the weirdest thing a fan has ever done / sent to you?

Matt & Linz were doing the mailing list at a View gig and this group of guys come up and started singing lyrics to our songs. It was warming.

Name one unusual fact about each of you?

Luke - was so close to getting a job delivering avon catalogue's
Toll - Loves taking his clothes off
Aidan - Is obsessed with stomping his feet (LOUDLY) on stage
Linz - 2 pints of cider & she's on the floor
Alex - plays the violin

If you could record a collaboration with ANYONE - who would it be and why?

We've had mixed suggestions from the band such as Dizzee Rascal & White Lies.
But it's going to be overruled. Rick Astley would be our dream collaboration just so we can get rick rolled.

What’s the band’s ultimate ambition or what’s your dream?

To carry on making music that people like to hear and to carry on progressing.

Is there anything else you’d like to tell us?

Go buy our single on Itunes
