We caught up with Zander Sharp, whom we featured a few weeks ago, as he puts the finishing touches on his new EP. Some choice nuggets here, folks: Zander spills on his song-writing business, his past as a ‘moody twat’ and cold-calling record companies. Who said punk’s dead, eh?

I used to have a playlist – compiled by iTunes, I believe – called ‘Indie: Coming Down.’ It breaks every puppy-orientated string in my heart to tell you I can’t find this anywhere on my iPod or computer.

I was going through a ’16 year old kid trying to get into Radiohead’ sorta thing and my playlist was going through a more ‘I’m so high that I need to lie down, pretend the floor’s a cloud and listen to Radiohead’ kinda thing. And I’m not saying I spend my life in the latter’s world – drugs are bad, y’all – but I definitely get it now. So let’s rekindle some childhood naivete and raise a glass (mug of tea) to those early morning hours when it’s too early to fall asleep and too late to play Nicki Minaj. Side note: I’ve kept this list free of U2, Frank Ocean and The xx but literally all of their albums/songs would be A-OK here.
