I interviewed Everything Everything for There Goes The Fear.
Critics have said your music is difficult to categorise, how would you describe your style?
We think of it as pop primarily but I think it’s a little bit more interesting. We try not to make it sound like a lot of things you’ve heard before, we don’t try but it tends to come out a bit like that. We’re not really interested in copying certain genres or anything, so I guess you’d say it’s unpredictable and sort of surprising.
Do you have any particular influences?
We were all into the same stuff that everyone when they’re 15 was into like Nirvana and all that kind of stuff. That was kind of the start of it, that’s where I picked up guitar. Obviously Radiohead is the big one and we’re all big Beatles fans, but we also like a lot of American r&b like Destiny’s Child and R Kelly. People might think it’s a bit silly but we think there’s stuff in there that’s actually really good.
