Although we’re all experiencing massive Glastonbury FOMO right now, it hasn’t dampened our spirits too much for one reason. Barn On The Farm is next week! We’re pretty damn excited, even more so, since chatting to our Scottish faves Prides. Always up for a laugh, read on to find out why you should be right there at the front for their Barn On The Farm set…
Hey Guys! It’s been a while, how’ve you been?
It has been a while! We’ve been great! Hidden in our secret bunker, planning world domination.
You’re currently working on album number two, how’s that going? When do you think we’ll get to listen?
It’s very nearly finished! It’s been a while in the making, but we wanted to make sure we were really saying something with this record. We’ll be announcing it very soon, and you’ll have it in your ears before long, don’t worry!=
You’re off to Europe in October, on tour, with Satellite Stories, got anything special planned for that?
We’re really looking forward to it! It’ll be great to be back out in Europe, especially as it’ll be the first shows since people have started to hear new material! Which is always good fun. Otherwise it’s more of the same where we’re concerned; Blood, sweat, magic.
Post summer, what do we have to look forward to from Prides?
New tunes! New tunes! New tunes! We have some fun things planned around the album coming out, so you’ll need to keep yer eyes peeled.
You’re playing Barn on the Farm Festival next week, looking forward to it?
Absolutely. It’s without doubt one of our favourite festivals in the country, we’ve always had an amazing time!
Is there anyone you’re particularly excited to see at Barn on the Farm Festival?
I really loved the last Tom Odell record, so that’ll be great. And of course the boys in Amber Run, who never disappoint!
If you could collaborate with any artist on the line up, who would it be and why?
I think probably The Japanese House, I absolutely love Amber’s voice.
What can people expect from your BOTF set? Any new material appearances?
We’re going to be doing things a little differently this time! We’re stripping things right back, and absolutely gonna test the water with some new material!
How does playing festivals compare to your own gigs? Do you have a preference?
Festivals are always great fun, I think everyone is always in good spirits, ready for anything. It’s also a great opportunity to recruit new members to the Prides Dork Mob™
Have you got many other festival appearances planned for us to get excited about?
With finishing up album 2 right now, it’s taken priority! So we’re keeping our heads down. We will be at Carnival 56 in Dundee in August if yer in that neck of the woods!
What are your top festival survival tips?
We operate a buddy system. Don’t lose your buddy. If you lose your buddy, well, you’re at the mercy of the festival gods. Good luck to you.
And finally, for those lucky enough to be going to BOTF fest, in a few words, why should they come see you play? Think of this as new music speed dating, no pressure, 30 seconds, GO.
We’re vivacious, bubbly, love animals. We like dancing and have a great sense of humour. We’re also both single, so if anyone wants to actually speed date, just come shout at us.
