Tell us a bit about yourself? We are The Receivers from York. We're a four piece Indie Rock/Post Punk band. We bonded over a mutual love of bands such as Radiohead, Weezer, The Cribs, Interpol & Blossoms.

There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest? We feel its our DIY attitude that has got us where we are today. We don't have any tour or live management/crew. We don't even have a van! Too many bands these days are just born into it through family connections or wealth. We wanted to do it the old way and just play as many shows we could, wherever we could.

What’s your back-story? We wanted to structure our Crescent Moon Heart EP in a way that all our favourite records are structured. With a bit of variety in sound & really good hooks, lyrically and instrumentally. We all love pop music from acts such as Blondie, New Order, Electronic & Human League so we wanted to incorporate that somehow. our new record is a continuation of that, songs with hooks and punches. In our recent studio sessions, we wanted our songs to be as refined as they could.

What are you working on at the moment? at the moment we’re gearing up to record our second EP and organising 2019!

What's the first song you remember hearing? The Beatles - Good Night. My Dad would sing it to me as a lullaby.

You're in a Karaoke Bar - What's your go to song? Blondie - Heart Of Glass. No questions asked, its just the greatest pop song of all time in my opinion.

Which song do you wish you'd written? Too many to name but Cornerstone by Arctic Monkeys is definitely one of them. i love the lyrics.

Which song changed your life? I remember hearing Ryan Jarman's opening vocal in Come On, Be A No-One by The Cribs and instantly being obsessed with that band. 24/7 Rockstar Shit.

Which song made you want to play music? Hard to think of a song but Humbug by Arctic Monkeys, that whole album really turned me onto songwriting.
