MD: That's fantastic! Now, I hope you don't mind me saying, but you're quite a young band, age-wise. How did you manage to get an EP recorded, and what advice would you give to an aspiring group who want to do the same?
JW: We found someone local who recorded bands, so we got in contact with him and asked if he wanted to record us. He'd worked with Babyshambles so we were pretty nervous and thought he wouldn't want to waste time on us! He said yes and we set a date and a place where we would record. We recorded in our local church, which probably added to the sounds of 'Dust EP'. It ended up being quite an amazing place to record music, especially for us and for him! We'd advise a young group who wanted to record to probably find someone local, or maybe a friend who does or has done Music Technology at school. They would probably record you for free, or maybe for a small price. The quality of the recordings should be good enough to get you gigs in your local big city, and take you further afield in your musical careers!
MD: So, you and Harry are twins. Growing up, what influenced you most, music wise? An artist or band in particular that inspired you to record music?
JW: While we were growing up, I'd say we were mostly influenced by bands like Green Day, Oasis, The White Stripes, Bloc Party, System Of A Down and Arctic Monkeys. Mostly well known guitar bands. I think the band that influenced us the most at the start was probably Green Day. Now we're influenced by New Order, Metronomy, Television, Pink Floyd, Blur, Joy Division, Radiohead, Nirvana, The Beatles, The Horrors, Airship, Hot Chip and LCD Soundsystem to name just a few!
MD: That rock influence certainly shows up in your work, and as far as I can tell, people love it! As the band progresses and you record more music though, do you think your sound and style will change? Is there any particular genre you want to explore more in the future, for example?
