We’ve got not one but two interviews with London based musicians on the show today.
Interview with Shaefri
Shaefri is a London based, Irish Egyptian musician and I adore her new single Pixelate. We had a good chat about the recording of the single, who she’s working with as well as how both Ireland and Egypt have influenced her work.
Interview with Itamar Starets from Secret Cameras
Secret Cameras are a band that I think are probably typical of the melting pot of cultures that London is. You have members who are English as well as Israeli, Greek and half French.
Their new single ‘Going Places’ is gaining traction and has been featured by Dan Hegarty on RTE 2XM as his Tune of the day.
