Each week, we’re going to be introducing you to a model new artist we’re going mad for right here at NME Towers through our ego-busting Q&A, What’s Your Band Known as, Mate? This week, London’s Egyptian Blue discuss being ordained, getting a response out of their audiences and their inevitable finish at a cliff-edge.
What’s your band referred to as, mate?
“Egyptian Blue / EB / EB INC.”
What do you sound like?
“Like our artwork.”
Are you any good? (truthfully)
“It wouldn’t really be for us to say, but we do tend to elicit some sort of reaction from people!”
What’s your finest music?
“We don’t have favourites, we value equality in this band.”
What’s been your most memorable gig?
“We didn’t play very well, but The Globe in Brighton a couple of years ago was pretty memorable, due to glasses and people flying everywhere.”
Inform us one thing actually fascinating about you, that isn’t to do with music?
“We have an ordained member in the band and also a shady Jeweller. (Not the same member)”
What’s your karaoke music?
“The karaoke song of choice would have to be ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’, Simon & Garfunkel.”
State of affairs: We’ve given you a shit load of cash to make a giant finances video – what do you do?
Firstly, get in contact with our buddy Jon as he’s owed a giant payday following his work on our earlier low finances movies. Then rent a tour van and drive to the largest cliff we will discover for one remaining stunning day of non ballast behaviour.
What do you need to obtain together with your music?
“Eternal happiness, failing that just to make music that connects with people should cover it.”
In case your tour bus was hanging over the sting of a cliff and also you wanted to throw out one band member as ballast, which member wouldn’t it be and why?
“We’d all jump, as there’s no throwing in this band. It would make a good end to a big budget music video though.”
Fill within the blanks: If you hearken to our music, it seems like EB is THE ANSWER to your PROBLEMS.”
In case your band had ‘stans’ (superfans, like Katy Perry’s Kitty Cats or Girl Gaga’s Little Monsters), what would the title for them be?
“THE EB INC’S CLAN CREW ORGANISATION OF OVBANITES or something like that.”
The place can we see you subsequent?
“We are currently on our first headline tour of the UK, some of the dates have already sold-out so be quick! We’re also playing various festivals (SWN and Ritual Union), and after that we head out on tour with Yak in November.”
What do you need to occur at your final ever present
“A re-run of that one infamous show at the Globe mentioned above – perhaps more people this time and less glass!”
