Jess catches a quick moment with the guys from Calling All Astronauts to find out more about the Electro Goth Punk Rockers.
Could you tell me a little about your band for people who haven’t heard of you?
We have been around about 4 years, we’ve released 2 albums and 8 singles, our music doesn’t generally fit into one classification, yes we are an alternative rock band, but we use a lot of dance rhythms
We tend to write a lot about social issues, mainly from a left leaning view point, we take our influences from many acts of the late 00’s and early 80’s but try to make a modern version of it.
What initially got you into music?
I was listening to my mums records on one of those old mono gramophones from when I was about 5, she had lots of 60’s records, like The Swinging Blue Jeans, Freddie And The Dreamers and The Beatles.
Where do you see the band going in the future?
Being a DIY band, we can just keep making music for as long as we want, and right now, we are working on a lot of new material, we don’t play live a lot and would like to rectify that in 2017.
Name 3 bands (active or not) you would love to tour with.
Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode and Sisters Of Mercy.
Finally, what would you say that your guilty pleasure music is?
I love Northern Soul, that may not really be what currently qualifies as a guilty pleasure as it’s currently quite cool, but it does surprise people considering the music I make.
