Why do you live in London?
Will: Because it is the opposite of where I was brought up and I wanted to try something different.
Fiona: Because you can be anonymous.
Josh: I moved to London to be in the band, but it ended up that my closest mates from up north live here too.

What are your go-to places to eat and drink?
Fiona: E5 bakery by London Fields does the best toasted sandwiches. And Violet’s on Wilton Way for coffee and the best cake you’ve ever eaten.
Will: In Finsbury Park I like The Oak for wine and Brave Sir Robin has great beer and an excellent kitchen.
Josh: The Shakespeare in Stoke Newington is a class old pub with a real community spirit that is missing from a lot of establishments! Apollo Pizza is also my favourite.

We’re deep into winter now. Where are the best places to hunker down away from the cold?
Fiona: My living room.

What’s the best way to spend one really good day here?
Fiona: Go and get a David Shrigley tattoo.
Will: I like doing the Parkland Walk from Finsbury Park to Alexandra Palace which has great views of the city. There is a decent boozer at the end of it as well.
Josh: Go to the Castle Climbing Centre early doors, then into town to The Huntarian Museum (when it’s open), finished off with a few Guinness at The Auld Shillelagh.

What are your favourite outdoor spaces?
Fiona: My friend recently had a bath installed on her balcony so she can have baths outside which I think is very cool. I’m still waiting for my invite though.
Josh: Walking around The Barbican.

What’s the bit of London that you live in got that the rest of London hasn’t?
Fiona: My dog, Otto.
Josh: The best Turkish restaurants in town.

What’s the worst thing about London?
Fiona: The pigeons.
Will: The pollution.
Josh: The lack of a horizon.

Do you have any favourite venues?
Will: The Dome at Tufnell Park!
Josh: The Lexington holds a dear place in my heart.

Does living here influence the music you write?
Fiona: Most certainly.

How would you advise someone to get the most out of London?
Will: Try walking around rather than public transport and look up as much as you can.
Fiona: Smile at people.
Josh: What Will said.
