The Stowaways The Stowaways… All aboard!

Interview: The Stowaways

Published on July 2nd, 2012 | Jonny Abrams

The Stowaways release their new single “Take For Change” today and play Camden’s Proud Galleries on Friday, so Rocksucker fired them over some questions to find out a bit more about the whole operation…

How did you all meet, and how long has the band been going for?

We formed a couple of years ago because we all had similar tastes and wanted the same thing. We’ve stayed together because of how well we get on though, and that’s pretty important for any band that spends as much time together as we do.

How would you describe your music, if pushed?

Our music has evolved quite alot over the last year, and we’re still experimenting and trying new things. If pushed I’d say our direction’s heading towards a mixture of Friendly Fires and Bombay Bicycle Club but with a slightly more epic underlying guitar edge to it.

Where are you based, and what do you use to record with?

We’re based in East London, and have been working with a producer called Adam Looker for the past couple of releases, which has helped our sound to grow massively! We write at home mostly, taking the best tracks from demos recorded in Logic, that the whole band can then develop into the finished material.

Is there a full album in the works? If so, what can you tell us about it? (Feel free to be as abstract as you like!)

Kind of, at the moment we’re focusing on writing as much as possible, definitely with an album in our long term plans, but for the meantime, releasing singles to help raise our profile and following as much as we can. To get out of London for a couple of months with dedicated time for recording would be incredible!

Where can we hear your music online?

All our tracks are up on Facebook and on our website, but you can add on us SoundCloud directly too at www.soundcloud.com/thestowaways.

Which have been your most exciting gigs and/or overall moments so far?

Most exciting gig was probably last year, we flew over to Prague to support New Young Pony Club, our first tour away from London – nothing can beat being able to play that kind of crowd, especially away from home. We’re looking forward to the chance for more of those kinds of shows over here at some point.

Are there any obscure and/or up-and-coming acts that you’d like to recommend or give a shout-out to?

We’ve all got quite into Alt-J at the moment, did a remix for one of the tracks a few weeks back for a competition of theirs, haven’t found out yet if it made the cut.

Finally, if you were forced to spend the rest of your days in solitary confinement, but were allowed to bring the entire works of five different artists along to tide you over, whose would you choose?

I know between us we’d probably end up struggling to narrow it down to five, but I reckon, with The Police, Metronomy, Coldplay, The Maccabees and Friendly Fires, we’d all be pretty happy.

The Stowaways, thank you.

Whilst Associate Qualifications are a great way to get started on, completing the Bachelors presents you with many entrances to various careers, there are numerous internet Bachelor Diploma Programs available by institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another thing is that many brick and mortar institutions make available Online versions of their certifications but normally for a substantially higher payment than the providers that specialize in online college diploma plans.
