The joy of interviews when one of you can't speak...
Ahead of The Big Moon picking up the prize for Best Music Video supported by Princess Yachts at the VO5 NME Awards 2018, we caught up with the band to discuss their past, present and future. Watch our video interview with the band above.
Well we say ‘discuss’, as singer Jules couldn’t speak and could only communicate via cue cards after blowing our her voice in preparation for the next record.
Watch above as we talk to the band about their debut album, rollercoaster year, past NME Awards mania and excess, and their plans for touring and their next record in 2018.
Hailing their debut ‘Love In The Fourth Dimension’ as one of the Best Albums Of 2017, NME wrote: “The cracking debut album by Juliette Jackson and co was nominated for a Mercury Prize this year. “It’s batshit crazy”, they said of the news at the time – and yet it’s easy to see where their plaudits come from. The indie crew win on almost every front: they write material you can sing along to (‘Sucker’), they show a thorough awareness of dynamics’ power (‘Formidable’), their guitar lines are a delight (‘The Road’), and they’re really, really funny.
“Just look at how savagely they mock the louche douchebag on ‘Cupid’: “He said, ‘I’m gonna make the Earth shake tonight’ – pineapple juice, tropical Rubicon courage.”
