What do you do?
We’ve managed to land ourselves in the position where people want to trade legal tender for us to prance around playing guitar.

Describe your style in three words?
Wonky Burglar Magicians.

Which subcultures have had an enduring effect on you?
Synth Punk - Suicide and Martin Rev. Lets get dressed up leather and dream baby dream.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
Rod Serling for sure, we’ve watched many an hour of Twilight Zone. Cool ass dude with a buttery smooth voice and strong jawline.

Another you? Any other career that would have appealed?
We’d like to fix holes where the rain gets in. The Beatles - 'Fixing a Hole'. 

Best Gig you have ever been to?
The best we’ve been to together was probably this seated Ariel Pink gig at Manchester Royal Northern. After two false starts of 'Picture Me Gone', the drummer left his strobe light on for the vast majority of the gig. The encore finally came after somebody donated their weed to the band (under the band's terms). The experience we want and will remember.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
Our last show with our good friends Happyness (on their UK tour) was at Tufnell Park Dome, it holds a dear place in our heart. This combined with its prom meets working men's club aesthetic makes us feel right at home.

Her's are a Liverpool based pop duo consisting of Stephen Fitzpatrick and Audun Laading.

The band were one of the many boundary-pushing new outfits longlisted for our British New Wave 2018 feature, drawing together some of the most promising artists on the current scene.
