Anthony Barlow

Where are you from?
Handsworth, Sheffield, England.

Why do you love what you do?
The process of creating things that didn’t exist before that people can relate to long after we’ve gone.

Describe your style in three words?
Charming and Melancholic (A melancholy and alcohol mixture).

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been too?
Fleet Foxes at the Eden Project in Cornwall. Perfect setting for a gig and I’m a big fan of Robin Pecknold’s writing. Villagers and The Bees supported.

What music did you listen to growing up?
I have my Dad to thank for turning me on to some decent stuff when I was a kid. He used to play things like New Order, The Beatles, David Bowie and Echo & The Bunnymen.

What British music icons inspire your sound today?
Marr/Morrisey, Garvey, Turner, Lennon, Bowie.

You can make a record with anyone from history - who would it be?
Probably Scott Walker or Gene Clark.

High Hazels new E.P. 'Weak Sun' is out now, featuring the single 'Sequin Eyes'. The band featured in our Sheffield Sound post last year, where we reported the rumours of new music from the four-piece, who count Richard Hawley and James Skelly among their fans.
