How did you first get into music?

I started having piano lessons when I was 6 so that was my first introduction into the musical world. I always loved singing but I kept that quiet for a number of years. I used to write music on the piano when I was still in primary school but it was when I was 13 that I wrote my first ‘proper’ song with music and lyrics. I remember I wrote down that I should the play the chords in a ‘waterfall’ style. Haha! Whatever that means. Since then I completely fell in love with songwriting.

Tell us about your next single

Our next single which we finished recording a couple weeks ago is called ‘Stars’ and we’re working on a self titled E.P at the moment which it will feature on. I’m so excited about it – got a few surprises lurking around in there!

Any upcoming gigs?

At the moment we’re in talks with a number of venues, confirming
dates. We’re planning a single launch (potentially for the end of
October) with designer label Jack Wills which should be amazing. The
next terms looking to be really busy – all the details will be up on
our facebook page so keep  your eyes peeled.

Who are your influences?

Oh man – there are many! We have such a range of artists who inspire
us. Lauryn Hill, Erkyah Badu, Ladyhawke, The Weepies, Room Eleven,
Alanis Morissette, Adele, Norah Jones, Laura Marling, Brooke Fraser,
Bon Iver, Bat for Lashes…we’re actually really into dubstep remixes
at the moment.

Why do you love what you do?

It is one of the most terrifying things opening up to the public songs
which you’ve written about your own life and experiences but it is
incredible to be able to put all your emotions into music and then
have other people enjoy the product of that. Ridiculously vulnerable
and ridiculously fun.
