Dazes Q&A

Your names:
Amy (Drums), Brandon (Bass), Hannie (Vocals) and Mat (Guitar & Vocals).

Where are you from?
Sprinkled across North London.

Name of band: 

How would you describe yourselves and your music?
Somewhere between Californian surf psych and 60's rock, with some garage elements. We've been compared to The Raveonettes, The Kills, The Dead Weather and The Black Keys.

Who are your main influences musically?
We all come from different backgrounds, but The Velvet Underground, Nick Cave, Smith Westerns, Pixies, Patti Smith, and Jack White have had the strongest influence on our music.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
Well, we'd love to play alongside the likes of Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears at the MTV Awards...Naaa, only kidding. Our goals for this year are to release a video for ‘The Family’ (our next single), gig around more of the country and get on the festival circuit. I think in the long run we'd like to get signed (what musician doesn't?) and see the world whilst touring.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Liverpool Music Week closing party. It was a bender to remember. Chvrches and The Black Lips played, plus a DJ set from Foals. It's such a good festival and we got a really good reception.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
When we went to Manchester...We don't talk about that anymore.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
We should really say ‘Neon Lover’ as it's our single, but ‘The Family’ is probably the best representation of our overall sound. It's very dark and moody, with a driving rhythm section, good dynamics and lyrics, combined with blistering guitar licks and hypnotising girl/boy vocals.

Where can we listen to it?
You can listen to all of our tracks at

Anything else you’d like to say about your music that I forgot to ask?
