“We’re essentially kids but we don’t just do this for fun. It transcends that. This is our life. We didn’t know each other before this band & we weren’t introduced to music through our friendship or via school. We all found it when we needed it. We’re not in a band for any reason other than we all value music so completely that we can’t not make music. It’s a time in our lives where we don’t have anything else. We’re 18 year olds departing school & that’s always going to be full of turmoil, so we document that & give it life in our songs. What’s not interesting at 18?”
Although the boys cite Bombay Bicycle Club, The 1975 and Blossoms as some of their influences, they also suggest that the influences they take from these bands aren’t necessarily musical, instead they take emotion from songs written by these bands and allow this emotion to take them in whatever direction it does musically when writing. Although straight out of school, its clear that musically the band have a very mature outlook.
