Q&A with The Lights What are


you listening to right now?


At the moment I’m listening to a lot


of Scala & Kolacny Brothers, a Belgian girl’s choir who sing beautiful covers of indie anthems by the


likes of Nirvana & Radiohead. I saw them live in Dublin this year and they were mesmerising.


How did you get into music? I was convinced when I was 10 that I was going to be a champion netball player when I grew up, but unfortunately I had a kiss-chase


accident (as you do!) fell over, and ended up having knee surgery! When I realised it was time to hang up my netball bib, I got into music by mistake at school when they asked us to sing along with a piano, and realised that actually I was quite good at it!


Who do you follow religiously on Twitter? I must admit, I do find Twitter a little overwhelming with its constant updates at times. Therefore I tend to limit my following to a select few! Amongst which, I always enjoy the brilliant Regina Spektor’s tweets, she’s very good at putting a positive spin on life!


What have you been reading lately? Most of the books I’ve read lately have been by Cath Kidston & Kirstie Allsop! Im a bit of a magpie when it comes to vintage clothes and furniture, and when I have time I enjoy upcycling and customising old objects, so I look to those two ladies for tips!


Who is the most influential person in your life? Im lucky enough to have a brilliant close circle of friends (4 of which are in the band!), who along with my boyfriend and family are the most important people in my life. I value their opinions, advice and friendship above anything else as influences on me and my decisions.


Which song do you wish you had written? So many! If I have to narrow it down to one, I think it would be Fake Plastic Trees by Radiohead. It’s a song that I think is completely timeless, and can mean everything and nothing depending on your mood at the time! Brilliantly clever and beautiful.


Does God exist? If I knew that I’d surely be rich!
