Where have you been staying in 2020?

Thankfully we’ve managed to stay home and not had our lives disrupted too much with this crazy year.

What have you been doing during times of quarantine?

Lots of music, I’ve just changed over my DAW to Ableton so learning that. Got a really good course I’ve taken on learning it by Rachel K Collier so that’s been real good.

Have you found or re-found any hobbies?

Not exactly but I’ve definitely been cooking and baking more but playing video games and synthesizers as always.

What have you been listening to lately?

Couple of things caught me this year as really stand out. First one was a Swedish band called Juno Arcade, great guitars, great hooks and a Radiohead kind of feel in places. Secondly gotta give a shout out to Lydmor, she’s put out three singles this year and they all been electronic bangers, go check them out.

Has your songwriting process changed this year?

So song writing has not changed very much but recording has taken some time. We just released our single “Skin” ft. Fran Minney and obviously not being able to get together made this take a bit more time. I mean the end result is exactly what we wanted though, it’s even just been nominated for an award for best collaboration.

Is there any message that you would like to convey to fans or soon-to-be fans?

Take care of yourselves, don’t let all this mess in the world right now get you down and be sure to find us on Twitter, give us a shout and go watch the video for Skin on YouTube.

What is something positive that has happened to you during 2020?

I consider all of this pretty positive, learning new things, working on music more, just need it to all go back to normal now so we can get out there.
