“To be honest I hate everyone in the band and yet I still talk to them”

Having done their part in terms of live shows and EPs exlovers have released their debut single and are looking to drop a bit more though 2009. Their tour with Pete and The Pirates wet the beds of indie fans throughout the UK and 2009 sees the band on their first headlining tour. I spoke to one fifth of the indie-poppers, covering tours to albums..

Describe your sound quickly to those who’ve never heard of you..

Somewhere between shoe-gaze and drunken haze.

Tell us more about your new single..

It’s our first single! Just a Silhouette is one of out more poppy songs I think. Clouds is a bit different, there are songs that seem to work when when I record them badly and that was one of them.

You recently went on your with Pete and The Pirates, how was it?

Pete and the pirates are a great band and lovely people. I think their music is quite different to ours but I really like it and that’s quite a rare thing for me, unfortunately the music I listen to is quite limited. I hope we can tour with them again because it was really good hanging out with them.

What is your biggest inspiration?

I guess The Beatles are, though I listen to them a ridiculous amount of Built to Spill and My Bloody Valentine. I don’t really know, it’s hard to say.

What would you consider your biggest achievement as a band to date?

Still being a band after spending about three months on tour together. To be honest I hate everyone in the band and yet I still talk to them,  I guess that’s an achievement. That’s my favourite joke.

What are your plans for 2009?

Well maybe I need to stop living like this. I could move into a house and grow some interesting plants, learn some sort of martial are, stop biting my nails and feeling so fucking bad. I think we’ll write and album.
