“I think the lyrics probably mean different things to the three of us. I got the idea for the lyrics by using a free website called ‘Online Voice Generator’ where you can type in a text and a robotic voice reads it back to you,” explains the band’s Kristian Møller. “So I experimented with this idea of the robot lecturing me, or telling me off. It was something along the lines of “you’re worthless, and your band sucks”. Most of the ‘robot’ lines ended up becoming parts of the lyrics in Get A Life. I wrote the lyrics during a period where I was being particularly negative about the situation in the band. So I guess it’s a song directed to my own negativity.”
With over 4 years of gigging on the London scene under their belt as well as tours of Scandinavia and festival performances, the band have honed a dynamic live show that reflects their anything-goes musical tastes and influences. Last years’ well-received MedievalEP drew on a varied musical palette alongside literary and historical inspirations, and the band will be releasing a string of new singles in 2019.
