DJ Interviews: Nervous Twitch

 Here's my interview with the band Nervous Twitch

How'd you get started in music?
Jay - Me and Ash (Drummer) have both been playing music since our teens. Erin started in her early 20's; first as our drummer before moving on to bass.

Who are your inspirations or influences?
We have a range of influences from 70's punk bands such as The Ramones through to British Indie Pop bands such as Jesus and The Mary Chain and The Vaselines. Generally we are inspired by simple, catchy, short, pop songs, covering any genre!

What advice would you offer aspiring performers?
Just do your own thing, try not to be distracted by current trends as they move on so quickly and it'll come across as more authentic if you stay true to yourself. And you’ll enjoy the process so much more!

How do you set yourselves apart from other bands or singers?
I think one of our strengths is our ability and desire to try different things. We like to try different sounds/approaches; on our new record we have experimented with bass led, atmospheric, post punk approach; alongside the jangly laid back pop numbers.

Any new gigs or albums in the future
We are playing a number of gigs across the UK including a number of all-dayers such as Wales Goes Pop (Cardiff), Pop at the Lock (Middlewich Cheshire), Annual Diversion Festival (Northwich). Tonnes of ace gigs such as Some Weird Sin at Paper Dress Vintage (Hackney) and The Rezillos support slot in Leeds this September! We are taking the plunge and hosting our own all-dayer in Leeds on 30th April 'Part Time Punks' (yes, TV Personalities reference!). We were inspired by all the great ones we get to play around the country and thought we try and bring a taste of that to Leeds. 

Releases wise we’re dead excited about our next album which is scheduled to be out on Reckless Yes in November!

Special thanks to them for this interviews, I wish them lots of luck in their music. So until then I'll catch you on The Flipside! Stay awesome & rock n roll!
