INTERVIEW: Sterling Press

1. How’s lockdown been treating you?

We haven’t been put down by it. We just got on with it and carried on writing and demoing new tunes. It’s obviously not as easy as it was before but we call each other a lot to discuss and share any ideas.

“It’s time to eat the nuts!” – Why Generation? Meets The New Twentys

A few days ago I got to chat over zoom with indie-pop rockers The New Twentys, made up of brothers Jimmy and Harry Morris, and Chris Bourne, to find out more about the new project, their single coming out next week, ‘You Got Me Good’, (a warm, uplifting song that will bring some light into these dreary days), and how the band went from playing in other projects to forming The New Twentys.

INTERVIEW: The Kecks

Not to drag on about the current situation, but since you are a very culturally diverse band, how has covid affected your work?
Like everyone, we’ve had to cancel and seemingly indefinitely postpone tours and shows. It’s, of course, frustrating and we miss it, but it’s especially sad to see everyone in the industry being affected.

FEATURE: “This Song….” with Lauran Hibbered

This song I remember from my childhood: Avril Lavigne – My Happy Ending

I  remember getting the Under my Skin album for Christmas and being so excited, I  made a scrapbook out of the lyric sheet. It was my mum’s favourite song on there as well, so we used to sing it in the car on the way to school (cute).  

This song inspired me to be a musician: White Stripes – Hotel Yorba

I have always and will always love this song. I think it has everything. I feel like I have learned a lot from this song, and spent a lot of time studying it. It was one of the first songs I  learned to play on guitar too.

Hi Harry! Can you please describe your sound for us in exactly 7 words, no more, no less?

Soulful and honest, occasionally a little funky…

2020 has been a strange year for everyone, but there have been good times amongst the band, what would you say your highlight is so far?
