Q. What new skill would you like to learn?
A. Angharad: I’d like to learn a language, maybe French.
Q. Is there a story behind your song Live It? What inspired you to write it?
A. ‘Live it’ came about because we wanted an uplifting and up-tempo song. It started with a chord progression and the lyrics and melody followed. We wrote it about living in the moment and enjoying what you are doing instead of waiting around for it to get bigger and better. When we play this song live we always start by getting the audience to clap the rhythm and see if they can keep it going for the whole song.
