Where are you from? Leeds, United Kingdom
What year did the band form? 2014

What inspires you? What inspires us is the drive to keep fighting through the difficulty that is life; to fight through the heartbreak, pain, and suffering that we love to express in our songs.
How often and where do you reherse? We rehearse at least once a week and it’s in a local music studio.

Do you have other interests of work outside the band? Aischa wants to work with nursery-aged children (0-5 years).
Are you looking for a booking agency, and what are your thoughts around that? At the moment we are going with the flow. We’d rather be working to improve until we feel like we’re ready for a booking agency, although that would be amazing.
Are you looking for a label, and what are your thoughts around that? Pretty much the same, going with the flow, except we’d rather be found with a label.
What made you decide to make this music? The band was a bit of an outlet to begin with, releasing anger and complicated emotions into melody and lyrics.
What are your songs about? Complicated emotions, revenge and heartbreak.
Who does the composing and writes the lyrics? Aischa
Do you start with the music or the lyrics? We tend to start with the music.
Do you compose in a certain inviroment? Nah, we can compose anywhere. Once I composed on the bus to college.

What are the least and most people to attend one of your gigs? Um… I’m not entirely sure.
