- How did you get your initial start in music?
I started by playing drums when he was around 12 and then moved to guitar at 17. Curmà started with guitar when he was 20. It’s pretty late but he had enough talent to catch up quickly! (Vidal)
- What would be your ultimate aim in the industry?
Our aim would be to make our craft our full time job, and have the chance to tour regularly. I think that’s most musicians’ dream (Curmà)
- How long have you been writing your own music?
I started writing songs around 2009, but we started writing stuff together only in 2013 (Vidal)
- Who are your top three influences and why?
We have many influences, but if we had choose our top 3 they’d be: The Strokes, The Libertines and Django Reinhardt. They all wrote catchy yet classy tunes, which is our ultimate goal when it comes to songwriting. (Curmà)
- Is there anything you would like people to know about your current release?
It’s a small collection of songs we wrote in 2014. You can hear the influence of Mac Demarco, one of the artists i’ve been listening to full time since last year. (Vidal)
- Where are you based and what’s your local scene like? Any favourite venues?
We are based between London and Padova (Italy), two very different places. Everyone knows about the London music scene but don’t underestimate the Padova music scene, there are some very interesting bends, and they don’t like talent or variety.
I particularly like Proud Camden in London, we used to play there every week last year. (Vidal)
- Who else can you recommend from your local scene for people to have a listen to?
Listen to Elian Dalmasso, a talented French guy I used to share the stage with at Proud Camden, or to Navigazione Interna, an Italian band from Padova. (Vidal)
