Following appearances on The Late Late Show in 2012 and receving praise from various outlets, The Imagineers are gearing up for the release of their brand new album, and took the time to answer some quickfire questions for Female First!
For those who may be new to your music, how best would you describe your sound?
It's a bit like Quentin Tarantino and David Bowie had a baby on Mars and that baby being ended up being raised by Luke Skywalker.
What challenges have you faced in the music industry so far?
We've heard a lot of old men talking about getting our ducks lined up… Still working on that.
How difficult would you say this career path is in terms of making a name for yourself?
It boils down to the quality of the music, obviously there are other factors, but you need to have a good foundation to build on.
How important is it for you to have creative control over the work you produce?
Paramount. If that wasn't the case, we'd start a tribute act called The Last Chocolate Poppets.
If you could collaborate with anybody going forward, who would you choose and why?
Josh Homme from Queens of the Stone Age. I really rate his production style and he's got good patter.
Tell us a random, funny fact about you that not many people know.
Our tour manager is a part-time fortune teller.
Do you have definitive aims or goals for your career?
To produce classic albums. And maybe have Quentin Tarantino direct one of our music videos!
What should we expect from you in the coming weeks and months?
Lots of catchy tunes for Imagineers old and new. Also, our debut album and some tour dates! And bad puns.
The Imagineers will officially release their new album 'Utopian Dreams' on February 24, 2017 via Hit The Light Records.
