For people who haven't heard your music how would you describe it?
It's American influenced 70's classic sound but with a modern edge to it, we love bands like Air, Beck and the super Furry Animals so we are not a retro kind of band we try to bring everything forward when we record, I think we are quite a different sound, unlike most other things that are out at the moment. The Coral and Electric Soft Parade are both great bands and they are quite different and cool there is a lot of the garage thing going on at the moment.
So how do you go about writing all your material?
Well everyone kind of pieces bits and pieces together, a lot of the time Connor comes in with the main idea and then we all work on it for awhile so we all do our practicing together and we just bash out ideas together, sometimes something can come together really quickly but other times it could take us a week or two, everyone gets very involved in every individual part we put a lot of time into arranging the songs which is really important. At the end of the day it's a group thing.
How did your record deal come about?
We were really lucky we sent out a couple of demos to some small Irish record companies and one of the guys really liked it but the others weren't too keen, but he called us up and he said he would manage us and he looked after us and got us recording a few songs and we sent some around, at first we only got one or two calls but then with in about 3 weeks we got a huge amount of calls and we were really lucky because we were able to choose from some really huge record companies so at the end of the day we went with Virgin. The MD signed Air and he is really into our sound, I think it was just the right deal for us, we were afforded big deals with big advances but we just wanted to get with the right people and I think that is more important than anything.
