Neverlanded, an alt-rock trio from London, released their new single Refuge about a month ago. The band, consisting of Pete Bloom (Guitars/Vocals), Alice E.B Atkinson (Bass/Vocals) and Frazer Holloway (Drums), recorded the song at Hermitage Studios with Margo Broom (Arrows of Love, Yassassin & Calva Louise) and had it mastered by Pete Maher (Pixies, Jack White & Linkin Park). The Fountain caught up with the band to discuss it in more depth.
TF: You have a new single out, that must be exciting?
It is! We were looking forward to this release! Could it be the track that makes it to TV ads the same way Bohemian Like You by The Dandy Warhols made it? Let’s see. Vodafone? You there?
TF: And what has been the reception been like to Refuge, can you elaborate on the track?
We only released our debut work a few months ago, and released Refuge on 31st October. We hit more than 1200 plays on Soundcloud in the first 10 days! As well as our fans, a good number of music journalists have also shown faith in Neverlanded through some positive media coverage for our music. Thank you to each and every one of you for spreading the word around. We all smile the same, and feeling accepted and supported is the brightest smile we could ever wear.
TF: And can we look forward to an EP or LP from you soon?
Most definitely! Currently, we’re back in Hermitage Works Studios, with producer Nathan Ridley, where we are experimenting with synths, dubstep and 100% emotional headbangers.
TF: Can we look forward to seeing you live soon, particularly here in Scotland?
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to invite Simon Neil of Biffy Clyro to invite Neverlanded for a mini-tour in Scotland. Looking forward to your call Simon!
TF: What does it feel like to be working with Pete Maher?
It’s exactly the same like when you work with respectful, kind people who are down to earth no matter their achievement. Fluffin awesome!
