Q&A - All We Are
All We Are played our first festival outing at Electric Picnic last year and we can't wait to have them back on the Other Voices stage at Latitude Festival! Catch their set on Friday 17th of July.
All We Are are a Liverpool based, global gathering made up of Ireland’s Richard 'O Flynn, Norway’s Guro Gikling and Brazil’s Luis Santos. Inspired by a shared love of hip-hop and soul music, Guro calls their sound a “psychedelic boogie”. Following their fantastic set in St. James' Church, we are delighted to be welcoming All We Are back to the Other Voices stage at Latitude Festival. Don't miss their set on Friday night!
OV: How was Glastonbury? Did you catch any other bands?
Guro: We had such a great time! Gotta love Glasto. Yeah, we managed to catch a few gigs, Super Furry Animals were an absolute treat! The best thing about Glastonbury is that everyone is in such good form, it’s not very often that you get to surround yourself with 230,000 happy faces.
Which radio stations and/or TV shows have been important to the All We Are’s development and why?
Being on Other Voices has been a little childhood dream for all of us so when we got to go to Dingle in December it was pretty special. It was our first TV performance as well! We listen to BBC6 Music a lot so when they started to champion our tunes that was a big one. As DJ’s go Lauren Laverne and Huw Stephens have a special place in our hearts.
What did you think of Other Voices Dingle? Did you get to see any acts on the Music Trail?
ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! We didn’t manage to see any one on the Music Trail but we saw Wild Beast, Young Fathers and Jessie Ware in the church.
Do you have any recommendations for someone who has never been to Dingle?
Try all the pubs, they are all brilliant, and go to the gin factory! (The Dingle Distillery)
What are you looking forward to at Latitude?
Play a storming gig and hanging out.
What’s the funniest thing that has happened on tour?
Last time we were in Paris, after a hefty night, Luis got sick smack bang underneath the Eifel Tower. That was pretty funny.
What was the best gig you’ve been to in the last six months?
Kate Tempest. She’s absolutely brilliant.
What have you got planned for the rest of the year?
We’re going to play loads of gigs, write tunes and have a grand time.
