The sludgy undertones gives a flicker to the nineties, whilst the gritty lyrics and hard rock bring the band in line with other rock bands of the moment. Keep tabs on these boys whilst they bring the old and new together and make full-on rock.
RAW MEAT: Tell us about your local music scene; what’s your favourite local venue, are there any record labels or stores we should look up, what’s the scene like where you’re from?
Mary Do You Wanna: The local music scene here in Essex is pretty good; plenty of bands on the circuit and quite a decent array of venues. That’s about it though. The most iconic features are probably V-Festival and Brownstock Festival. Favourite local venue would have to be Chirneys in Southend: big stage, big venue and plenty of smoke machines. All-time favourite would have to be the Barfly in Camden, however. The overall scene in Essex is pretty interesting. There’s a general blend of all genres but it’s mainly pop-punk and metal.
Name one track/band that you love from the past.
One track? That’s hard. I’ll go with 'Sea of Sorrow' by Alice in Chains.
Name one track/band that you’re loving right now.
DZ Deathrays – 'Dollar Chills'. Mammoth of a song.
Name one track/band that you think we should be listening out for in the future.
Anything by Allusondrugs or Beasts. I cannot fault either of them.
What are you up to now?
Scheduling! We’re currently writing some interesting new material but, then again, we’re always writing. Other than that, booking up plenty of gigs for the Summer and focusing on studio time/future releases.
What can we expect from you next?
We’ll be releasing our debut single, 'The Plague', today (15/05/15) which will be available for purchase on iTunes, Amazon and all the other places. We will also have our debut EP out sometime shortly after.
