“I never wanted to be indie. I think my goal is to deliver my music everywhere. Now I have lots of crowds in Brazil and in Japan and I don’t want it to be like… How do you say it, there’s a word for it… esoteric.” – Petite Meller

“You don’t realise that build at your home in Liverpool because you’re always away but when you come back it’s just gotten bigger and bigger. The last gig we did at home, we were upgraded to a much bigger venue and it sold out like 3 weeks before and it was just like the ultimate gig night you would have pictured in your head. It was rammed to the ceiling.” – Mike, Clean Cut Kid
