What kind of stuff can you do growing up in Brooklyn? Is it tough? Is age restriction a big problem?

Let’s just say that fake ID’s are thriving; A lot of shows are 21+. When I first moved to New York, four or five years ago, I had a roommate in the dorms who let me use her passport as a fake ID. Nobody can ever fuck with that.

Did it just happen that you liked the same music?

Well we’ve been friends for years and have grown up listening to the same music. We were in bands before that all played together, we were all part of the same scene. We mainly listened to Nirvana, and we bonded over punk. We met at a Weezer concert.

What music are you into that people wouldn’t expect?

Britney Spears, Katy Perry, and soft rock like Billy Joel.

If someone put a million dollars on the table, and said that you had to spend it all on one show, what would you do?

We would fill the show with Puppies. We’d get a giant cake, and more puppies would come out of the cake. Yes! But they’d all have ear plugs in so they wouldn’t hurt their ears. And that’s how we’d spend a million dollars.

What happens in the aftermath of the puppyshow?

You just pet them. The floor would be covered in dogshit. Actually, it’s a magic floor. The shit magically disappears, because we spent a million dollars.

What do you hate?

We love everything. Apart from Puppies without homes.

Have you got plans to record anything new soon?

We’re recording our second album in March, and we’re aiming to release it in September.

What will people get from this album that they didn’t get from the last one?

A nosebleed. I think the direction of this album is going to surprise people. We’re poppier, but the whole concept’s sadder and darker.

How is it going to make me feel?

Sad, sad, sad. in an ‘it-won’t-stop-raining-outside’ kind of way.

It doesn’t here anyway, so I’m fine.

I don’t know if it’s that sad. It’s actually more angry sad. It’s the fury and the wrath.

Are you more angry now than you were with the first record?

Yes. Because there are puppies without homes, I’m so angry. It was just a really hard, stressful year. Really fun, but a lot of crazy shit happened. It was a crazy year in our lives.

New Music

Structure - Dimbleby & Capper
These are songs that "stick in your brain like porridge to the back of a spoon". I hate porridge, but D&C's oestrogen infused pop is addictive enough to overcome that.

Dimbleby & Capper - Structure

Neva Believe U - Mavado
The beginning of the dancehall star's new single says it all "Daseca, it's da next hit song"


Jeffer - Boys Noize
It's been a while since Boys Noize's Alex Ridha dropped some fresh material upon us, but the latest off his Starter EP excuses the wait.

Boys Noize - Jeffer

It Gets Your Body Moving - Suckers
If you're bored of really brilliant psychedelic bands from Brooklyn then you won't like Suckers. If you're not, this could be the song of your summer.


Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs - Bournemouth
Signed to Joe from Hot Chip's label Greco Roman, this Jurassic duo make fun music to bounce to.
