So ‘Don’t Stop’ recently got released, how are you feeling about the reception it received? (Minus Memes…)
Robbie: Nah the memes are the best part! Nah its been, I think it’s kinda blown us away, it went so much better than we thought it was going to, the amount of people sharing and liking it and I think were on about 5,000 views now as well on YouTube. So yeah it’s gone really well, really surprising…
Callum: We’re feeling very blessed!
Robbie: So yeah the amount of shares and likes and 5,000 views, its just so much more love than we expected, which is nice…
So what are your anticipations for when the EP is released?
Callum: Hmmm I don’t know, I’m quite nervous about it actually but I think it will go really well cause the rest of the EP is that kind of similar vibe apart from one very different track with strings in it
Gregor: I think that will throw a lot of people though like take a lot of folk by surprise
Callum: It’s quite a surprise, it’s quite different to anything we’ve done before, that’s quite exciting to see how the response is for that
Robbie: Yeah we kinda pushed it, well pushed ourselves with that song, uhm because everything we’ve done so far has been quite sort of indie-pop and this, well it’s still got an essence of that to it but it’s a lot more chillaxed. Don’t use that word please
I’m gonna use that word!
Robbie: It can be my next meme
What’s been a standout moment from this year?
Hamish: We won a music award, The Dunfermline Press Live Music Award. Didn’t expect that…
Robbie: Yeah that was cool. That was a proper awards night, we got all dressed up and got free champagne. I’d say tuts as well, we’re about to do Tut’s for our third time in a couple of weeks. So to have done that at all is pretty cool, but to do it three times is really cool
Callum: Yeah and tonight!
Robbie: Yeah tonight!
What can people expect from the launch tonight?
Callum: Lot’s of bad dancing
Robbie: Bad dancing, lazers, smoke machine. All three. This was all kinda sprung upon us recently
Callum: People are gonna walk in and be like what the fuck!
Robbie: Yeah where the fuck are we!
What have people got to look forward to in the next six months from you guy’s?
Robbie: Uhm more music hopefully, we’re already writing new things
Hamish: We’re gonna try and head down south for gigs as well
Robbie: We’re gonna broaden our horizons. I keep saying things like jokingly and it just doesn’t sound right…
I’m gonna put it in as seriously as possible!
Robbie: ‘He said with a very serious face’
Callum: ‘A tear streaming down his cheek’
Callum: Just keep doing what we’re doing but more…
Hamish: Just keep the momentum going
Callum: Just building up the fan base
Robbie: Yeah just letting more people hear our music
Callum: So we don’t have to sit and watch our video like 3,000 times
Robbie: My laptops crashed from it… Most viewed page – Youtube – Dancing On Tables
Hamish: More memes!
Robbie: Yeah more memes, we all want a meme each. That’s the aim of the next six months
What’s the first gig you ever went to?
Robbie: Uhm T in the Park when I was 11 and I saw Goo Goo Dolls

Describe Dancing On Tables in three words?
Callum: Awww No!
Robbie: We did that like two years ago with someone
Hamish: Funky as in a horrible smell?
Hamish: That is not a describing word Robbie, neithers memey
Robbie: Nah its a three word phrase. Funky, memey dancey
Hamish: You’re not writing that, energetic instead of dancey
So I think we have Funky, Memey, Energetic (Dancey)?….
The worst gift you’ve ever given or received?
Callum: A sudoku cube
Michael: Is that your best?
Callum: Yes, No! Yes of course my best was a sudoku cube…
Hamish: A shower gel set
Robbie: A DVD which was owned for six months and then decided it wasn’t liked
Callum: We gave Doyle for his birthday a few weeks ago, a can of reduced hotdogs
Robbie: Yeah it was his birthday and he was driving and we’re all kinda getting drunk and we were just like here you go Doyle Happy Birthday
Michael: He doesn’t even like hotdogs
Robbie: Naw Michael ended up taking them home
Michael: I love hotdogs!
Robbie: Aww god! See why we mute them
Hamish: I’ve got to say though the best present I’ve ever got is an electric blanket

Callum: Seeing The Maccabees at the Barrowlands, that was very emotional
Robbie: He said with a tear in his eye!
Michael: Mine would be being at the very very front for Killers at T in the Park
Gregor: Yeah that would be mines as well
