Name, where are you from?
Cosmic Strip. London.

Describe your style in three words?
French. Goth. Punk.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
I went to see Lana Del Rey play in London last year, I hadn’t seen her perform since the ‘Video Games’ days and I felt like so much had happened since then. I was full of tears throughout the whole show.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
Well, first of all, it would have to be David Bowie – he’s my ultimate idol and his stage design and performance would be out of this world. Next would be Elliott Smith because I wouldn’t know how to write music if it wasn’t for him.

Which subcultures have influenced you?
I’m a weird blend of vintage 60s and 70s punk and psychedelia mixed with 90s alternative and grunge.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
John Lennon and we would lay down a track together in the studio in an hour.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
We headlined Moth Club a few years ago and it looked like one of my cosmic dreams.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
Elizabeth Fraser from Cocteau Twins – their music was so forward thinking at the time and her vocal capabilities are fascinating.
