Slow Club

Who are you and where are you from?

I am Rebecca and I fell from heaven obviously. (Sheffield)

Who are your favourite artists from home?

I currently love a band called Seize the Chair

What’s it really like touring?

80% uncomfortable, either too hot or too cold, a weight gain hell. Sedentary yet never still. BUT once a day you get to walk out on stage and perform for people that you appreciate and love so it is ALL WORTH IT.

What’s your favourite city/town/venue to play?

I love playing in Sheffield because all our friends and family come and my Dad can give me a lift home.

What’s your ideal festival line-up?

Hammocks are everywhere, there’s only 100 people invited and I have approved them all, there’s designated nap times and no bands play. Oh no, Perfume Genius plays 4 times.

What has been your biggest achievement of the year?

It is the 28th January so this year I have achieved not dying in this bitter winter we have suffered.

What was the worst piece of advice you were given?

Pasta is good for you.

What do you do to relax?

Rock back and fourth in a corner with Katy Perry ‘Roar’ on repeat.

What are you reading?

The Women who Run With Wolves. I’m ready to be okay with my wild woman now.

How about TV, anything good on the box?

RuPaul’s Drag Race makes me very happy.

Do you have a favourite YouTube video?

What website do you visit most?

Lost classic song?

Who is your favourite current artist?

Taylor Swift

A new artist that you are most excited about?

Nadine Shah – utterly magic beautiful woman making amazing dark and beautiful music.

What was the last great gig you have seen?

Katy Perry Prismatic tour

Worst show?

I don’t believe any shows are bad – everyone is just trying aren’t they?

What should we expect from your Irish shows?

HORDES of people as we haven’t played in Ireland for years. I hope it is like Beatlemania.
