Despite COVID getting in their way of extensive touring, they’ve been working hard on new material (including standalone single ‘Upside Down‘) and will bounce back in 2021.

LAST GIG YOU PLAYED BEFORE COVID?
Played at The Tote Hotel with Violent Soho, it was mental!
HOW DID COVID AFFECT YOU/YOUR BAND?
It definitely took its toll right as we released Mindless Joy. It was unfortunate but every artist has gone through the same thing this year so we chose to become stronger and ended up recording new music from my home studio built during lockdown. Onwards and upwards.
BIGGEST THING YOU LEARNED ABOUT YOURSELF IN 2020?
That it doesn’t hurt to be who you truly are and I learnt this by spending so much time in isolation. Be who you want to be and don’t let anything or anyone get in your way, it’s your life at the end of the day and it is so precious.
WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO IN 2021?
Not wearing a mask and playing heaps of shows with heaps of legends.
