For those who may be new to your music, how best would you describe your sound?

A fast paced and undeniably British sound, but with subtle shades of New York's underground garage rock scene due to their sheer, unbridled energy.

What challenges have you faced in the music industry so far?

When we played down in London, a lady approached us after the show and said she worked for EMI, she contacted us a few times saying she planned to work with us and wanted us to tour with The 1975, We did a bit of Catfish style digging on the internet and also phoned EMI, it turns out she was just a massive fraudster and had also tried the same thing on a few other bands.

How difficult would you say this career path is in terms of making a name for yourself?

It may seem quite hard to make a name for yourself in such a competitive business but it can be done fairly easily if you attend music seminars and make friends with the right people.

How important is it for you to have creative control over the work you produce?

It is extremely important to have creative control over the music we produce.

Where do you draw influence and inspiration from for your work?

We draw our inspiration from a variety of sources, it can be from listening to new music or watching documentaries, reading books can also be a good source of inspiration.

If you could collaborate with anybody going forward, who would you choose and why?

I think we would like to collaborate with Beck, he's such a multi talented musician and has always been inspirational for us.

Do you have definitive aims or goals for your career?

Goals for our career are just to carry on making music that we love and to get it heard by as many people as possible.

Where do you hope to be this time next year?

This time next year we would like to be playing all the major festivals across the UK after having released our first album.

What should we expect from you in the coming weeks and months?

Over the next coming months we are playing at a few showcase gigs including XPO north in Inverness and Discovery 2 showcase in London, we're also playing at this years T In The Park festival followed by an EP release and tour of the UK.

Moving In Slow Motion is released via Ded Rabbit Records on 15th July 2015.
