What’s your band called, mate?
What do you sound like?
This first EP is really just comforting no-frills singer songwriter kinda stuff.
Are you any good (honestly)?
I like to think so!
What’s your best song?
My favourite one won’t be released for a little while, but the best song on my first EP is probably ‘Corduroy’.
What’s been your most memorable gig?
I think opening for Palace at the roundhouse. I went to my first gig in London there when I moved over from New Zealand, and I absolutely adored Palace when I was younger. All in all a nuts experience.
Tell us something really interesting about you, that isn’t to do with music.
I get sleep paralysis when I drink red wine.
We said really interesting…
Yikes alright. I love dad culture. I think I’m my happiest in my big ugly sweater, a beer in hand blasting yacht rock to my dog.
What is your karaoke song?
‘Bennie and the Jets’, obviously.
Scenario: We’ve given you a shit load of money to make a big budget video – what do you do
Spend all the money on flights to New Zealand for me and my band, shoot a shitty live performance for as little money as possible then take em all on a full tiki tour around the country since they’ve never been there before.
What do you want to achieve with your music?
I don’t have a goal really- I just know that I love it and I want to keep doing it for as long as possible.
If your tour bus was hanging over the edge of a cliff and you needed to throw out one band member as ballast, which member would it be and why?
Wow, harsh. Sean and Petter are the greatest I could never do that to ’em. I’d definitely have to take one for the team. Maybe the martyr status would be good for my career.
Fill in the blanks: When you listen to our music it feels like the music is bringin’ back your first love
God I don’t know. Mol’s moles? Hopefully if I had ‘stans’ they’d think up somethin’ better than that.
Where can we see you next?
I’ll be doing a bunch of festivals around the UK and Europe throughout the year.
What do you want to happen at your last ever show?
There’s not gonna be a last show. I’m gonna be kickin’ about with my guitar til the end of time.
Any final words?
Yes shoutout to my dog Bug, miss u buddy
