Reading Festival: The Academic

It’s simultaneously amazing and really frustrating because over here you guys are ploughing ahead, and gigs are back and everyone is vaccinated. And in Ireland, the vaccination rate is the fastest and highest in Europe, but still, our events industry is the last one to come back, it’s ridiculous you know. I think we have an 87% vaccination rate but no gigs.

INTERVIEW: YNES talks TikTok, print publications and the Music Industry in 2021

I came across your music through TikTok, many people think that TikTok is ruining the music industry, what is your take? 
It’s a weird one! My attitude is kinda ‘if you can’t beat them, join them’ – I’d never describe myself as a content creator, otherwise I wouldn’t be a musician haha. I guess over the past year especially, it’s accelerated so much. It definitely worries me that our attention spans are growing shorter (or maybe just mine).
