Describe your style in 3 words:
A - Wild.

What is the best gig you’ve ever been to?
A - We put on a show at Moth Club in London last Halloween that was really special. We played with some friends like Nova Twins, Garden Centre and Emily Franklin.
R - Right now, we just played a show with a band called Her’s from Liverpool and they’re great.
B - Oh, but you know what we should go to this year, which I went to last year, which was just incredible? First Timers at DIY Space. It’s like they’re all new bands, and you have to fill three criteria: someone that’s never been in a band before, someone that’s either female or a person of colour, or playing an instrument you’ve never played before.

A - I bought Sleigh Bells’ album on tape when we played with them recently in Manchester.
