Hildamay Q&A


Your name:
Tom Spencer.

Where are you from?
Sidcup, Kent, England.

Name of band:
Hildamay.

Who else is in your band?
Oliver Jeffs, Sean Keane, Tim Lawrence and Chris Carvel.

How would you describe yourselves?
Adventurous, musical, energetic, outgoing.

Who are your main influences musically?
Anything from the Police to Deftones, we all listen to such a wide variety of music that shows when we write new material.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
We aspire to be able to be in a position where we can keep playing/writing/performing music to a wider audience.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Probably being able to head into the studio to record our first full length, or maybe playing Reading & Leeds festival last year. That was rad!

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
I’d say breaking down on our way from Slam Dunk (North to South). We were about an hour away from the venue, broken down in Northampton services on probably the hottest day of the year. At one point it looked unlikely that we would make our stage time, let alone the festival. Luckily we got back on the road and I think made it within 20 minutes before doors. That moment is the sort of stuff that nightmares are made of!

Where can we find out more about your music?
Check us out on Spotify

Anything else you’d like to say about your band that I forgot to ask?
We will be Touring the UK in March, it will probably be the only UK tour we do this side of the summer so be sure to check us out!
And thanks.
