PRICK AND DING #62: ALL WE ARE

ALL WE ARE

Each week Fresh On The Net invites an artist or band to answer a short series of questions in Prick & Ding: the two and a half minute interview. It's convenient and quick - like enjoying a tasty microwave meal!

THIS WEEK:ALL WE ARE

All We Are are a Liverpool based 3 piece & they are bloody good.

I love their lush vocal arrangements & sparse rhythms,I love their rallying cries that sound like they will be soon marching down a hill & into the field where you currently stand,I love their cheeky filtered string-ting effects & I love that they are on the right side of splendidly different.

ALL WE ARE

All We Are are Rich, Guro, Luis,2 of whom (Rich & Guro) I have had the pleasure of showcasing in former lives via the HOME series of albums.

These are talented people & one’s who imo are 3 minutes away from a big leap up the career ladder when aligned to their obvious hard work & dedication to their craft.

Their recent single Utmost Good was featured on our Fresh Faves in May & BBC Introducing

The are not short of people singing their praises with Huw Stephens described them as “like taking a funky trip through a land of lo-fi melodies” & The Guardian echoing their own description of the band as “the Bee Gees on diazepam”.

Do try to catch them live,they are bloody good as I say & getting better all the time.

You can find their upcoming dates here
