TXFM interview

22 Apr, 2016

The band are interviewed in advance of their show at The Workman’s Club in Dublin. On the death of Prince:

There is a real sense of: will those icons of that level  exist again? When I was young I used to get on the bus, go to town, buy an album, read the sleeve notes on the way back. You’d listen to it from start to finish. But music is so accessible now. It’s very difficult for bands now to glue onto people, and get fans for an album. Things like YouTube and iTunes are good, but the drawback is that the listeners switch on, they listen to you, but just as quickly they switch to something else. When we do connect we feel more privileged, but it hard to see somebody being that level again.
