The anxieties of big data. We managed to strike some kind of balance with a variety of influences and make our own stuff.

When we’re having a blast playing it !

What song by another artist do you wish you had written and why?

Bull In The Heather  by Sonic Youth.

What artist(s) has been your biggest influence?

PJ Harvey.

Name a song that makes you happy and why does it have that effect?

The knife “Pass it on”, it’s a song that makes us happy and that makes us dance too !

What is the best new band that you’ve heard recently?

Speedy Oritz. It’s not really a new band but we saw them a few months ago for the first time.

What song would you like to have played at your funeral?

Is this desire ? (PJ Harvey)
