IRELAND TRIO ‘WHEN YOUNG’ ARE HERE CHATTING TO ME ABOUT WHAT IS NEXT FOR THE BAND! 

What are your names?
Andrew ,Aoife, Niall

How did you come up with the band name?
It is a representation of our music and our message. Band names are tough, it certainly took a while.

How old are yous?
We are young!

What is your genre of music?
Alternative pop

Give us a little bio about the band and as individuals.
We’re besties, we met in our hometown in Ireland every weekend at the only club that plays the music that is relevant to us.

How long have you been doing music?
We started writing, playing and recording these songs about 6 months ago in our studio. But music has been something important to each of us for a long time.

What made you go into music?
Coincidence, fate maybe. It wasn’t an intention, it just happened with the right people, in the right place, at the right time. You can’t force a band together and expect it to work. We were lucky that way. We’ve all grown up being obsessed with music. We love rock n roll and dancing.

Are you a signed?
We’re currently unsigned.

Tell us more about the new single ‘See How They Run’.
See How They Run is our debut single and it will be released on the 22nd April 2016. It’s short and snappy and gives you a good idea of what we sound like. We wanted our first release to be a punch in the face, nobody releases songs under 3mins anymore and why not? We love catchy melodies with lots of energy which this song has in abundance. There will also be a B side released with it called “Show Me How”. The background behind the new single. We wrote it last year and recorded it between Devon and London with James Bragg and Adam Lunn. We know what the song is about in our own heads but you are free to gather your own interpretation.

Tell us more about any of your new music you have planned.
We have recorded a big batch of songs over the last 6 months so there is plenty more to hear and our best is yet to come.

What can you tell us about a new EP or Album? Will there be one?
There will be, we certainly have the tracks for one but nothing is planned yet, we’re only babies.

Who are your influences?
Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Blondie. Mystery Jets. The Modern Lovers. Currently listening to Christine and the Queens a lot and finding her music really inspiring. We saw Sunflower Bean live recently, they were captivating.

Will you be doing any gigs or a Tour?
Our debut show will be at The Globe, Brighton for The Alternative Escape on the 19th of May.
Following that we play a headline show at The Shacklewell Arms on the 31st of May.

How do you get inspiration to write songs?
It can come from anywhere. You can’t get inspiration, it just comes intermittently with the wind. Often seeing or hearing another artist can create the competitive spark that draws inspiration. Or sometimes it’s that simple moment of lucidity where you say, yes this is me, this is my life and I’m going to create something.

Where do you see yourself now in 5 Years?
We wouldn’t want to see ourselves in 5 years, it would spoil the surprise! Who knows, it’s a long time!

When you’re not doing music, what do you do?
We support our dreams by sowing plants, selling books and serving food!

Mike Skinner

If you could collaborate with one USA Artist who would it be?

Where is your dream venue or festival to perform in UK?
Does anyone ever not say Glastonbury?

Where is your dream venue or festival to perform in USA?

What was the song you listened to most that influenced you to go more in to the music scene?

A serial killer documentary

What’s the best advice you have ever been given?
“You gotta fight for your right to party” The Beastie Boys

What advice would you give to aspiring musicians not about the industry and just as an artist?
We’ll tell you that one in 5 years!

Sticks, plecs, your brain, gin and a token Aussie.
