Tell us a bit about yourself? Kairos started off as an electronic instrumental solo project for a college assignment that has now taken off to be a mix of electronic and indie rock. Born and raised in Blur's 'Lonesome Street' that is East Grinstead, she learnt to play violin, guitar and bass guitar. Louisa McClure has now moved to Leeds to study. Her biggest influences are Everything Everything, Foals, James Blake and Tame Impala.

There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest? I won 3rd place at a Radiohead pub quiz.

What’s your back-story? Waves was the first track intended for a wide audience and was heard by Tom Robinson which was then played on BBC 6 Music. It's about mental health, take care of yourself and everything should be alright in the end.

What are you working on at the moment? Plans for a live band are currently taking place along with a wide range of material that has to be learned.

What's the first song you remember hearing? Cher - Taxi Taxi. My mum used to play her album constantly in the car and it's such a banger.

You're in a Karaoke Bar - What's your go to song? The Wombats - Moving to New York. Canavan's is the best place to go to in Peckham.

What was the first gig you went to? I saw Keane when I was around 10 years old. My first gig I went to with my consent was The Wombats in 2011.

Which song do you wish you'd written? Radiohead - Weird Fishes/Arpeggi

Which song changed your life? Foals - Cassius. It's an indie classic.

Which song would you like played at your funeral? I haven't thought of that yet but I'll probably get someone to put on my Spotify Playlist.

What song is stuck in your head right now?Dayman from It's Always Sunny!

What was the first Album you bought? Gorillaz - Demon Days

Which song made you want to play music? I watched Pick of Destiny and that's where it all started.
