In the past, people have asked me if I run my website because I enjoy being a “music critic”. My response? I love running A Music Blog, Yea? because I’m a music fan; I get to meet the artists who inspire me to write and have influenced my life with their music.
If you told me ten years back that I would eventually interview The Maccabees, I would have laughed right in your face and never believed it. Well, last week I had the pleasure of doing just that – I spoke with one of my favourite bands, The Maccabees.
Soon releasing their highly anticipated fourth record Marks To Prove It, the London fivesome are currently touring North America alongside Mumford and Sons and recently brought their infectious indie pop/rock gems to Toronto. Ahead of the terrific show (my personal favourite of 2015, I might add), the charming Hugo and Felix White kindly took the time to speak with us to discuss headlining shows, the awkwardness of jam sessions, what they love about London, and other artists from across the pond. Enjoy our exclusive interview below:
