Name
Tear

Where are you from?
We all live in London, Ben and Camille grew up on the same street, Eve is from the Netherlands but her heart is in California.

Describe your style in three words?
Wannabe cybergoths, punk and glam.

Which style icons have influenced your identity?
Bauhaus - anything really - has largely influenced our goth souls. Courtney Love, Siobhan Fahey, Pris from Bladerunner, Niagara from Destroy all Monsters...

You can be on the line-up with any two bands from history?
Bauhaus and Birthday Party.

Which British Subculture means the most to you?
Post-punk and goth probably mean the most to us as a group and has had a massive impact on us stylistically both musically and in terms of the way we dress. Moody pop music is obviously the best kind.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
Eve: Personally Depeche Mode in the Olympia stadium in Berlin, Fat White Family in Brixton. It was the gig I met Depeche Mode and my friend Douglas McCarthy from Nitzer Ebb was supporting. Was a dream! Best line up and amazing venue.

Camille: Festivals are kind of the best gigs... seeing Queen Adreena play at Reading when I was a teenager and being completely blown away, I think I've probably been to every gig they played in London after that.

You can spend an hour with anyone from history - who would it be and why?
It would have been amazing to have chatted to Carrie Fisher for an hour she seemed like such a laugh. Maybe Marie Antoinette or Anne Boleyn just to see if they were actually alright people or not.
