I mean I really like the playfulness of the band, I’m totally for that, and we’re not a normal band: we don’t have a sound, we don’t sit in a room and jam like a normal band.
…I think we like to see the band to be something fun you do with your mates… we are fairly close knit and we like having a laugh.
I just want to sign music that can make me feel something.
We at Incendiary Towers were pretty impressed at the debut single from Elia, a new band from London. Funk-soul-flavoured pop guaranteed to get your feet moving. So we gave frontman Elia Rulli a call:

The problem in the music scene is that there’s too much conformity, everybody just copies everybody else in an effort to be cool, I would say being un-cool always trumps being cool as it lasts a lot longer.

The rule in Europe is that you finish your drink BEFORE you go into a bar. In N.A. it's the other way around. I am always amazed that such a simple change in thinking can have such a profound effect on the people you meet.
I think it is, however, important to make some kind of interpretation of the zeitgeist, just not the same as everyone else does!
just felt a need to get something new out that reflected what I'd been doing on tour in the last 3 years.
