From a six-strong indie household in Glasgow to a trans DJ thruple in a remote log cabin, we encounter the bands weathering the pandemic with each other
The London indie-pop band were recording at a studio in Devon when lockdown began
Al Greenwood( drummer ): Our debut album “mustve been” out last Friday, but when we realised we had to push everything back, we decided to go to a studio in Devon and start writing again. We was just here for 10 dates before lockdown and then had to make a tough decision: prioritise the band or be with our loved ones. Ultimately, we agreed on being in the studio indefinitely. I believe the situation brought out a new line-up in us. There’s a bia for everyone to be constantly joking, but it made us is becoming more considerate and open. But then we were told we had to leave. Now, there’s complete misgiving and we’re all in different parts of the country, trying to make a music video.
I don’t know how we’ll manage being in different places. Some vinyl records need to be signed by all six of us. The sheer logistics of trying to organise that … Our fanbase is super-engaged, so we’re trying to find means of maintaining that connection that isn’t, like,” Oh, we’re on Instagram Live again today .” We have a WhatsApp group where supporters can share fibs- nonsense like that stimulations you on.
