1. Who are your top 3 influences?
What?? Only 3??!! Let’s say that our 2019 releases are influenced by artists of the 90s. Like Placebo, Garbage, Hole, Silverchair, Refused and others.
2. How did you get your name ‘Neverlanded’?
It was never very clear how the name came up. It was just there.
3. How did you all meet?
We’re all involved with other projects, and we met through them, and we thought to ourselves, why not? And so Neverlanded happened.
4. What was your song writing process for your track ‘Refuge’?
No one can describe the emotions that overcome you when you see kids from different nations, who can’t understand each other, going through things no kid should ever go through. No adult either! Smiling and laughing cause you gave them a break from a messed up nightmare. We all smile the same, and the chorus brought us the rest.
5. What do you hope to achieve a year from now?
Be alive, and sound. If this happens, we take it from there.
6. What was your first gig experience as Neverlanded like?
Fun! Always wanted to meet and play with ‘YUR MUM’, and it was a great night. A week night that people gathered in a venue to see some bands playing. We’ve lost some great venues in recent years so the people who go out to a gig, after a long day at work, they keep alive the super organism.
7. Biggest challenge so far?
8. You are giving your EP to people for free if they donate to Mermaid UK. Can you share with us why this charity is so close to your heart?
Being a kid or a teenager is hard enough, especially in high school. The Trans community has the biggest death rate, 41% if I’m not wrong. Mermaids embrace, empower and educate so this rate can go down to 0. Neverlanded couldn’t stay out of this. Both our debut EP “FluffyUnicornsUnited” and single “Refuge” are both available for free with only a small donation to Mermaids. We dare you to go big.
9. What inspired the lyrics on refuge?
The chorus “We all smile the same” which is pretty simple if you think about it. But we all seem to forget it. ‘Cause sometimes we are or feel stressed, miserable, lost, sad.. We all need a refuge. Some found it, some are still looking and some others never thought there was one. One love to all.
10 What do you all do when you’re not musically involved?
Play video games, eat mouldy ravioli, work in SEN schools, pet dogs in the street. But we mainly dream.
11 Who has the worst dress sense?
We have no dress sense at all. It’s all about whatever is cheapest in the charity shop at the time.
12 Pizza! What do you all have?
We’re not pizza racists! We love them all, but Frazer has a soft spot for pepperoni pizza.
13 Funniest show story?
Frazer broke 3 snare drums in 15 minutes. The beat-maker beat the sugar out of the snares that night.
14. Fast forward and you’re millionaires. What do you do with the money?
Wow! Sounds stressful. Give it to where it’s needed. Give it all! As long as we have health, light and love, we’ll make some more millions. And we’ll give some more. You know, keep it fun. For everyone. We’re good with less.
