Liverpool Sound City 2014 Interview: The Inkhearts

The Inkhearts are a band of students from Skelmersdale, which was previously only known to me as the town where Stuart Maconie was a English lit college lecturer before he started working full time for the NME. According to the quartet, the town also has the largest number of roundabouts in the whole country. Who da thunk?

Anyway, I’m sure you’re not wondering about their town’s traffic woes. The youngsters performed as the Label Recordings’ showcase at this year’s Liverpool Sound City, after which I nabbed them for this interview about their relationship with the people who put on the showcase, where they got their band name and what it’s like to get airplay across the whole country. There were so many people watching them, I had to pull the press card (literally) in order to be let into the outdoor Kazimier Gardens venue.

Many thanks for the band to chatting with me after. Below the interview, you can watch the promo video for their current single ‘Keeping Up’.
