6.What’s currently in the pipeline for 2024?

We are about to release our third ep titled “paranormal activity” 5 tracks we recorded back in January. The theme of the record is the people you meet and that kinda just come and go. Some good, some bad. We have our UK tour in June where we play Manchester Glasgow and London on June 24th at the lower third. We have been planning more than just a 45 minute set of our songs. And putting on a show. We just moved into a permanent rehearsal/ writing space in east London where we can have all our gear in one place and work on the music in one place. We are around a lot of creatives. It’s kinda like a street
version of Andy warhol’s factory. Going back in the studio soon as we are off tour and have another exciting project coming later this year.

7 What would you say is your greatest strength as an Artist?
Most certainly our friendship. We all are really a family as easy as that is to say.
And our desire to make this work and to push this as far as we can. To get where we are now has only
been possible with the support of our fans. But our drive is what has kept us going.

8.What would you say is your greatest weakness as an Artist?
Talking to each other exactly how we feel. We used to keep our opinions to yourself to save arguments or to upset each other. Bottling it up led to shit hitting the fan but it took that to realize how important it is to listen to each other and work to a solution as a 4.

9.What can fans expect from your new single ‘You Don’t Suit Being A Rockstar’’

Us finally speaking out about how we feel about the “band scene” there’s a lot of people out there that wanna knock you down and set a bad example of what it means to be a “rockstar” There’s a lot of people out there that promote they believe in something when they don’t. The morals they portray are not what they stand for.
We think being a rockstar is making a positive impact on a scene and supporting the other people who are trying to achieve the exact same thing as you. And to set an example of anybody can do this shit because they can. If you believe in yourself that it’s possible it’s possible. But if you’re gonna be an arsehole “rockstar” it’s more than like not gonna wanna make somebody pick up a guitar.

10. What music artist would you say has influenced your work?
We have this chat a lot. I think we can all agree on nirvana. We all had that phase that made us pick up the instrument we play because of them. Sovereigns car journeys are so interesting. We all kinda bring a little something different when playing music. It’s great though. Learn something new each trip.

11. Who would you most like to collaborate with artistically?
Tricky one. So many ideas. Damon Albarn maybe. Fellow Essex lad. Or Josh homme.
Joan jet would be class to get on some tracks too We have really just hit a point where all 4 of us are bringing a lot more of an equal input to the table. But if we was to bring an outsider in maybe Mark Ronson to produce a record and help sculpt it. Josh homme
would be class.

12: What was your worst performance?
I mean each show we play we give it our best but worst gig so to say would have to be tramlines. Our
venue got moved and the sound was terrible.

13: What was the most difficult obstacle you have ever faced and how did you overcome it?

I guess not having a van and being a touring band. We use coaches mostly or sometimes we get driven.
We basically don’t use amps so we still have a touring rig but it’s limited to a pedal board with these clever amp pedals from Blackstar !! Shout out to those guys.
It’s so peak when coaches are being unreliable and you’re on a pretty strict schedule. Or when they move departure locations. We got stuck in Sheffield recently because the departure location of a coach got moved. Luckily our friends and fans “Rachel and Amelia” put us up as they always so when we where in Sheffield.

14: What is your creative process when making music. Do you work with others or is there just you?
It normally starts with a demo made in logic or a voice note then we mash it out in a rehearsal room and then it kinda just spirals from there it goes from a song one of us has written to a sovereigns song.

15 Where do you see your musical career in 10 years?
Wembley or the pub
