How long have you been making music?
Since I was 18.
What inspired your latest album?
Some of the established electronic artists that we know and love like Royksopp, Cut-Copy and 808 State through to emerging bands such as Pallers. I find the whole DIY approach to music very inspiring.
What process do you go through?
Currently, I do 90 % of my work on a Korg Kaossilator. Previously I always wrote on an acoustic guitar first, but on my latest album nearly all the sounds come from a Kaossilator. Its a quite limited synth (hardly suprising considering they cost £99.00) but that's partly what I like about it - it makes you work harder. I usually start with a simple loop or a lyrical idea.
How would you describe your sound?
Well one music blog described us as sounding like 'Royksopp if they came from a council estate in England rather than the shores of a crystal clear fjord' - which I think is a pretty clear description of us.
What would your dream collaboration be ?
Working with Matthew Devereaux from Irish band The Pale.
When can we catch you live next?
Currently we are concentrating on finishing the album, so probably some time in the summer.
