Twisterella is tomorrow! Are you as excited as we are?! We spoke to Bossy Love about their recent gigs, Dutch Uncles, ‘Body’ and their appearance at Twisterella.
Hey! You’ve been fairly busy gigging of late, have there been any standout shows?
They’ve all been pretty great, to be honest! But probably one of our favourites was supporting Metronomy in our hometown at the O2 ABC
You recently remixed Dutch Uncles ‘Oh Yeah’, what was it about the track that made you want to remix it?
John has been friends and a fan of Dutch Uncles for years now and I was only introduced to them recently.
They are an amazing live band and their singer’s voice is totally mental in the best ways, this track was mega upbeat and bright and we thought we could put our stompy Kinda twist on it.
Your recent track ‘Body’ is pretty great, did you approach this track any differently to that of your former releases?
When it comes to our tracks I don’t think we have a set approach or process of doing things apart from just kind of letting them happen. We decided to just kind of put this track out and see what happened with it you know?
Have you got any plans for an EP/Album (we really hope you do)?
We’ve just finished building a studio with some of our friends and are working pretty solidly at the moment we are working on a big body of work but how we end up releasing is also a different story but yes we are working towards an album.
You’re playing at Twisterella next week, looking forward to it?
Yes! It’s been a while between this one and our last show cause we’ve spent so much time in the studio and doing everything else, so really excited to play live and check out the festival!
Is there anyone you’re particularly excited to see at Twisterella?
Obviously, wanna see all the fellow Glaswegians play!
If you could collaborate with any artist the line-up, who would it be and why?
Well, I’ve already collaborated with Martin from Pronto Mama so yeah…..
What can people expect from your Twisterella set? Any new material appearances?
Well, we will be all really excited to play so there’s that and yes there will be a few new songs debuting in this set!
How does playing festivals compare to your own gigs? Do you have a preference?
Festivals open you up to an audience you wouldn’t normally be in front of in a concentrated environment and a short period of time, where are at your own gig there are people there who probably know what to expect and therefore can relax and have a good time. There are definitely good things about both situations, so can’t really say I have a preference!
Have you got many other gigs lined up for us to get excited about?
Well, we will be playing a night at the National Museum in Edinburgh so that will be a good one and hoping kinda of spooky haha, and then in November we will be playing some shows supporting Tank and The Bangas – which we are really excited about. You should check out their NPR session online if you haven’t already, actually any videos of them online I urge everyone to check out!
What are your top festival survival tips?
Make sure you scope out the cleanest toilet and that you are not hangry!
And finally, for those lucky enough to be going to Twisterella, in a few words, why should they come see you play? Think of this as new music speed dating, no pressure, 30 seconds, GO.
Cause we are just 3 Mates having a rammy, should be fun no?
