You can spend an hour with anyone from history - who would it be and why?
Probably Leonardo Da Vinci. He had so many original ideas which weren't taken too seriously at first but eventually were given the respect they deserved. It takes a lot of guts to stand by original ideas even when no one else believes in them. As for what we'd actually do, we’d have a coffee and he’d draw some crazy stuff; we only have an hour so, you know...

4 songs by new artists you can’t stop listening to right now? 

'Get Low' by James Vincent McMorrow.
It’s just pure vibes, wasn’t expecting it all!

'Put That Away And Talk To Me' by James Blake.
It’s excellently produced, I like it for the same reasons anyone likes a good song.

'29 #Strafford APTS' by Bon Iver.
Excellent production and lyrics, the whole album was great but this one is so interesting to me.

'Link Up' by NxWorries.
It’s a vibe I didn’t know I needed until I heard it, I’m glad it exists in my life.
