We don't play pop music, we don't write music for art's sake, we don't represent any movements, we're not hip, we're not cutting edge, we don't dress to be cool. We do manage ourselves, we write our own songs, we do our own recordings, we shoot our own videos, we design our own covers. We made our own website. We're not generally negative people, oh yes, and we're not lefthanded.
We like our name because it doesn't say anything about who we are or what we do, we like to give our music a chance to do that. That said, we would liken ourselves (if we have to) to a darker Rilo Kiley, a rockier Death Cab for Cutie, a girlier We Are Scientists, a wordier Jimmy Eat World. Other people have likened us to Mazzy Starr, The Cardigans, The Postal Service, 10,000 Maniacs, jj72 - so if you shake all that up you might get some kind of idea.
We like to sing (except Benji who will only sing on his own, in a car). We like to get loud when we can (Tubescreamers are good!). We only play music that makes us feel something, in our gut. We like music that's honest. We're mostly Irish, partly Cornish (not corny!). We live in London. We really like playing music, everywhere we can.
We've played with Duke Special, Oli'n'Clive, The Fools, The Answering Machine and The Rumble Strips. We were booked to play the Big Birthday Bash festival but they canceled the whole thing. Hopefully not because of something we said.
We like people who like us, such as Sebastian Rogers (producer, The Rushes, Catherine Feeny), James Wyllie (lawyer, Erasure), John Kennedy (DJ, Xfm and former US president) and our one fan (we're working to persuade the rest of the world).
