STOCKHOLM: Interview with indie, alternative and electronic foursome Go Native!

1 - What was your earliest musical memory and what pushed you towards pursuing a career in the music industry?
"The most poignant moment for me was listening to Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel and Shine on You Crazy Diamond on LP whilst being in 'an altered state' many moons ago. It definitely had a profound effect on me and I realised how magical music could be."

"We all have, all sorts of styles over the years! Too many to mention!"

"Just trying to get our bass-player, Alex, focused means we have no time for rituals."
7 - Any live dates coming up?
"Rab C Nesbitt."
8 - Any new songs in the pipeline?
"We have loads of exciting ideas in the pipeline - it's just finding the time to get them all sorted. A good sign is we feel each new idea is a little better than the last."

"We've only just released our single, 'Stockholm', which you can hear and see here!" (see link at bottom of interview)
