Re: Which harmonica?

Hi Jonathan. Uh, well, we're not super fussy but usually Hohners. It's more about the key - each harmonica is in a different key, you need the right one for the song in question.

Re: What’s the new album called?

Hi Gary. The record is called Be More Kind. It'll be out in May, you'll be able to get the full thing then. Guitar (and sorry to hear about the chemical thing!), I guess it's really just a question of practice, you have to put the hours in. Growing up I used to play 4+ hours every day, just sitting ...

Re: 2018 tour- belfast

Hi there. We always try to make shows all ages, but often times venues have licensing agreements and so on that make that impossible. It's down to the venue (and indeed their relationship with local police), basically. Hope you work it out!

Re: The Elvis T-Shirt

Big fan; I have a big Elvis tattoo on my right forearm. Love Sun era, 68 Comeback special, and the later period Muscle Shoals stuff is great too. Got into his stuff through the Peter Guralnick biogs. Haven't been to Graceland yet (went to the parking lot once on tour, we couldn't afford to park, let...

Re: Women in Music

Hello. Thanks! I know of Haim, I know people who work for them, but can't say I'm familiar with the music. I'm a huge fan of Nina Simone, Regina Spektor, Tori Amos, Kate Bush etc. Also loved all the L7 / Bikini Kill / Riot Grrl stuff.
