What have you guys been up to in quarantine?
Dom: We’ve been doing the kind of stuff that everyone has been doing, like cooking and jogging. It’s also given us a hell of a lot of time to sit down and reflect on the past year and to really get into album mode. We’ve done a lot of writing, which wouldn’t have happened if we weren’t stuck in quarantine.
Josh: This situation has definitely been a silver lining. When you’re touring, there’s just no time. I had loads of voice notes and ideas on my laptop that I have now been able to go back to and finish off.
I saw that you could finally rehearse together again after 10 weeks. How did that go?
Josh: It got to the point where we just had to start working again, but it’s working pretty well! We have a big studio warehouse in Manchester, so we can be in different little rooms and still work together. It’s nice to be back in the studio. We even have another session tomorrow.
