If you were making a porno, what would it be called and would it have a specific plot?
Jennifer: If I made a porno, I guess it would be soft porn, I’d make one with a believable plot with two or more characters who you really want to get together but they are kept apart by forces beyond their control. The angst and sexual tension keeps building until finally they declare their love – cut to the tastefully shot sex scene, fade to black, “all proceeds from this film go to Palestine”.
If you could bang any celebrity who would it be and why?
Carmela: I don’t get crushes on people that I haven’t met in person, because there’s so much more to attraction that just appearance. (Or maybe it’s my ego – I don’t bother wanting someone that I think I wouldn’t be able to get.) So no celebrities for me basically.
Harriet: Zordon from Power Rangers.
Tell me your most embarrassing childhood story.
C: Er…most of my embarrassing stories are from when I was a teenager. I guess peeing on my friend’s bedroom floor when I was 4 or 5, because I was to shy to ask to go to the bathroom was embarrassing at the time.
H: I once accidentally held an old woman’s hand on the bus.
If you could co-operate with any band or musical artist who would it be and why?
J: I think I’d like to collaborate with Michael Stipe, his voice is so much lower than mine, I can’t sing along to REM songs, so we could do that male/female octave apart singing for an entire song. I would love to see what he’d do with one of my songs because REM’s songs fascinate me.
H: Would love to collab with the Crutchfield twins (from Waxahatchee). But I’d also love to collaborate with all those song writers that wrote all those pop and RnB bangers from the 90s. And also Mcfly and Katie from Personal Best.
C: Bjork because she has the most incredible voice and all of her albums have been so different and inventive, and she’s always experimenting and pushing herself. Although it would be totally intimidating to work with Bjork!
What do you think human meat tastes like?
H: Probably cow’s milk, cos people are eating too much cheese and drinking too much milk then they got all this phlegm and they’re like WHY AM I ILL AND HAVE SPOTS ON MY CHIN. If you like the taste of cow stuff, eat a human. Wait…I’m pretty sure humans actually taste like pork. I think cats are meant to be bitter right? Good on em. My cat does awful farts, would you wanna eat her?
A penguin wearing a sunflower hat walks into the room, what is the first thing he says and why is he there?
C: There is a note tucked into the ribbon of the hat. It says ‘I’m sorry for everything’.
What inspired the lyrics in ‘Horror Story’?
H: Feeling paranoid, when its scary making new friends, when people spread lies about you and you’re like ‘oh shit, how do I battle a lie?’- Answer is you can’t, you just have to continue telling the truth. When you don’t wanna be featured in someone’s call out story cos you know that it’s mostly bullshit and there’s plenty of legit call outs you need to focus your attention on.
Walk me through the creative process of making ‘Two-fifty for you Girls’.
C: I thought I’d take inspiration from Laura Coles and do a Block Fort-inspired bassline.
H: Inspired by REAL comments we get. Find that a lot of people in our parent’s generation get annoyed with younger people cos they’re apparently not involved enough in politics. Then when you try and get involved they shut down your opinion, tell you to stick to the music and just want you to passively vote for whatever party they think is best and THAT’S it. Also this myth of wisdom that comes with age. Nah mate. I have to cradle middle aged men cos they’re so sensitive and can be big babies sometimes, that doesn’t sound so wise to me! Opens with a bangin’ guitar riff. Wanted it to be fast and catchy with loads of lyrics.
What are you currently working on and what can we expect to see next?
C: New songs and a new album! And over summer we’re touring Europe for the first time, so we’ll get to play in loads of new cities.
And you can get their new album ‘Anyone & Everyone’ here!
