Q1: What is your Name, Age, and Where are you based?
A: Fin is 17 & Bri is 18, and we’re based in Norfolk.
Q2: How did you first get into your creative practice/ work?
A: We’ve both been playing our instruments for 8+ years, and we found eachother as our dads are close mates. Being into the same music, we just kinda clicked and after a few small gigs at local pubs, we decided to proper try and push ourselves!
Q3: Are there any main or overarching themes you explore in your work?
A: Lots of our music is very politically written and focusing on themes that are impacting our lives.
Q4: How has the COVID- 19 Pandemic affected your work?
A: COVID has completely ruined so many plans we had. We had new music in the works, tons of gigs upcoming, and even merch on its way but we haven’t got the equipment around us to get anything recorded now. stay at home & wash ur hands people, the sooner this gets sorted the sooner we can be back on stage.
Q5: Highlight one of your biggest inspirations!
A: We both look up to similar people. Punk bands like ‘Strange Bones’ and the ‘Blinders’, upcoming local artists, are possibly are biggest inspirations!
Q6: Where can you see yourself in 5 years’ time?
A: 5 years is a long time, but we’ll probably be crowdsurfing somewhere, and if not, probably just sat on the sofa drinking tea. we live exciting lives.
Q7: If you could share a message with the world, what would it be?
A: Only advice we can give is don’t be a prick. EASY AS (:
