Tell us the story behind your name.
It means “hooray” like “fuck” we’re all fucked.
What is your favourite thing about playing city based festivals?
Are there any other bands from the line-up flyer who you really want to
see at Dot to Dot?
Yeah, I’ve never seen Wavves or Willy Mason, psyched for that. Our friend Johnny Woods has been doing visual work with Neon Indian but I’m not sure if he’ll be along for the festival…either way looking forward to that too.
What is your fave item to take on tour and why?
I don’t have anything like that really. I guess a bottle of something nice to keep company. I read a decent amount when I can but tend to forget to bring my books along.
If you could play any instrument that you can’t already, what would it
I wish I’d spent more time on the finer stringed instruments when I was a kid. Violin, cello.
