Q: Love the nostalgic 80s vibe, who are the influences behind TwentyTwenty?
2020: Thanks so much! some of our main influences are Tame Impala, who we’re all massive fans of, Wild Nothing and then bits of classic 80’s artists like Phil Collins, The Cure and Tears For Fears! Think it all sort of stems back from being taken to 80’s rewind festivals with my parents as a kid.
Q: “Ain’t Right” is talking about feelings not being right, did any real-life events occur in your life that inspired the song?
2020: I think at the time I had friends just not sort of ‘there’? if you know what I mean? and this song is something that kind of came out of that period, its been in a few different forms before its ended up where it is now, but I feel like that sort of uncertainty and evolution is something that most people can relate to whether that being mentally or in relationships that they’ve had.
Q: What has been one of the highlights of your music career so far?
2020: We’ve had the opportunity to play one of the most renowned venues ever, The Cavern Club, which as scousers meant a huge deal to us and the fact we got to play it with bands that we’re now fortunate enough to call our close friends is even better, so thats definitely up there. Think playing an old track of ours to Will Young is definitely up there too.
Q: How is the music scene in Liverpool?
2020: The Liverpool Music Scene is unrivalled, the music and bands we have are so diverse and supportive you honestly wouldn’t find another place like it. Scouse power coming for world domination.
Q: This was your first release of 2021, what projects are currently in the works?
2020: We’ve got some pretty promising things in the pipeline to announce and we’ve had the opportunity to with some amazing people on our upcoming stuff, its just a matter of time really 😉
Q: What would you like to tell your supporters out there?
2020: Think the main thing we have to tell people is to stay positive. I think its especially hard at the moment to do that and just get bogged down by all of the negative shit but taking 10 minutes off your phone and appreciating the people around you always helps.
