HI SOPHIE JAMIESON:) You will be playing at the SHHH Festival tomorrow 24th of May in Hampstead. We’re really looking forward and to this occasion we’d like to ask you some questions.
Tickets can be grabbed here: http://billetto.co.uk/shhhfestival-london
1. Where is home for you?
Home for me is a village called Datchet, in Berkshire - but to be honest it’s North/East London that feels like my real home. We’ve been gigging around that area for 2 years, my bandmates all live there and it’s where doing music generally seems to take us. Therefore it is home.
2. What are your top three records right now?
My top three records at the moment would be:
1. Polica - Give You The Ghost
2. Broken Twin - May
3. Alice Boman - EP II
3. What will your SHHH show be like?
Our Shhh show will probably be very fitting with the festival ethic! It will be a little subdued, quite intense, but perhaps, deceivingly quiet.
4. How do you like the idea of a festival of quiet music?
I love the idea. It is about time that someone gave us folks out there who just want to kick back and lose themselves in some gentle musical beauty, a whole day of it!! It is also very poignant I think, that this is a festival of ‘quiet’ music, rather than ‘folk’ or similar. It is very refreshing, as an artist, to be grouped not in terms of genre but in terms of atmosphere or style of performance. I think this will open some audience members’ eyes to a wider variety of genres, who may in fact have a similar ambition or focus in their music.
5. Where else should we be looking out for you?
Well, since we are taking some time off gigging over the summer to focus on writing/recording, this is one of our last London gigs for a while. We will however play a couple of festivals, including The Local’s stage at Wilderness Festival! Otherwise, you can catch us again in London in September :)
THANK YOU SOPHIE FOR THIS LOVELY INTERVIEW!:) SEE YOU TOMORROW.
