Tell us more about your EP “when you figure out you’re wrong”, what was the most difficult moment while preparing it?and the most rewarding one?
The song writing process was a tough one on this EP and it took as while to find the songs that we were happy with.
Even then we changed quite a lot in the studio – Things I (Don’t) Want was actually a lot faster originally before our producer made us slow it down and make it more feelsy.
The most rewarding moment was getting back the finished masters and hearing them as a band for the first time.
Are there any ‘crazy’ behind the scenes anecdotes from the album sessions that you can share with us?
Well, we got burgled two weeks ago and lost a lot of the demos that we’ve been working on as Ande’s laptop was stolen.
Most of our material is stored in the Cloud but you can’t work on a project from the cloud so that’s been an absolute nightmare trying to re-record everything we’ve lost in the past two weeks!
Is there a link, lyrically speaking, between all its songs?
The general theme is about growing up and learning from the general pressures that life throws at you.
What inspired the verses of “capture”?
Beth – “I was in a relationship at the time because it was easy and comfortable but it was boring and I actually hated it. We started arguing all the time and I felt ‘captured'”
And “keep dreaming”?
Beth – “It’s about how I want the band to succeed and I’ll never give up on it. Everyone should have a passion that they feel strongly about.”
What is the best verse you ever wrote?
Hard to say, we’re so close to all the songs that we can’t really pick! Our fans seem to love More To You the most though!
And the one of your favourite song (not written by you)?
We’re all digging the new PVRIS record!
How do you usually write the lyrics of your songs?
Beth usually writes all the lyrics. She has a scrapbook where she keeps all the lines she writes away from the band and then tries to fit them when we write a new song.
What is the last song you wrote?
It was a song called ‘Tired’ it’s got a really funky verse so hopefully it makes the album cut!
What does music mean to you?
It all means something different to each member. Music for us as a band is the most important thing though. We love making songs that impact people.
What makes you happy in life?
Playing shows and hear people sing our songs back to us ❤ it’s the best feeling!
Are you planning to tour soon?
Yes! We’re touring the UK in March/ April.

Do you remember the day you wrote “more to you”?
Yes! Beth and Ande were just jamming at home, it weirdly started with the lead guitar intro.
Beth had the vocal line already written and Ande wrote the lead and chords around it. It took a bit of tweaking before it got to the final version.
The ending was Bambi’s idea of having the multi-layered vocals.
