Calpurnia

Calpurnia – Finn Wolfhard and drummer Malcolm Craig discuss fake fans and navigating the industry as a young band

The boys discuss what's next with the band, including ambitions to play with their heroes Grizzly Bear

When Finn Wolfhard isn’t on set for Netflix’s Stranger Things he’s writing music and touring the world with his band, Calpurnia. Self-described as a “garage fun” band built on an eclectic foundation of rock, grunge, surf and indie, Calpurnia is as much a focus for Finn as his acting career. This has been fully realised in 2018 with the release of the Canadian band’s ‘Scout’ EP, live TV performances, and shows across the pond.

NME caught up with Finn and drummer Malcolm Craig as the group – completed by guitarist Ayla Tesler-Mabe and bassist Jack Anderson – prepared for a headline show at London’s KOKO.

Finn and Malcolm reflect on a busy year, fake fans, Quiplash, relying on Uber rides, and much more.
