How long did it take to write/record? Drew (our singer/guitarist) had the chorus in his head for a few weeks, and one day he sat down and wrote it in about an hour.

Is this track from a forthcoming release/existing release? It's the first single from our upcoming EP, Spits And Curses, out May 2016.

What was inspiring you during the song's writing and recording? The chorus was just a catchy idea Drew had and he came up with a story to fit around it. We were listening to a lot of The Kills and The Strokes at the time.

We'll like this song if we like… The Kills, The Checks, The Datsuns. Catchy, poppy, rock 'n' roll.

Do you play it differently live? Maybe a little faster. but it's pretty short, sharp and simple. We recorded it after playing it live for about a year.

When and where is your launch/next gig? We are launching this single at Whole Lotta Love on Sunday, 3 April, with Happy Go Blues and Lola supporting us.
