From a young age, I was kind of very into sports, such as soccer. And from that stemmed into playing video games like Fifa. And once I played Fifa, I got really into the bands that used to be on the game for the soundtrack so that made me want to learn guitar. So that’s definitely what got me inspired into music.” Jack Murphy’s favorite soccer team comes from England, their name is West Ham United. Just for all the reader’s knowledge, Manchester United is in 2nd place and West Ham is in 11th place… Just saying…..

His songs are about everyday life and whatever affects his life, such as politics. “It’s more about society and the way that everyone’s so divided nowadays. When I was younger, there was definitely a division in politics, but now it seems to be, with social media, it seems to be a lot more, ‘you’re either with us or you’re not’, you know, left versus right. And I’m kind of sat over here in the middle. Just kind of saying that there are a lot more problems to worry about in society, especially for the younger generation as well. So I’m kind of very interested in millennials as a center, because, you know, being one, we’re blamed for a lot of stuff.

“We were playing a show in London a few months back and there was a terror attack literally about ten minutes down the road. Yeah, it was scary because as we were playing on stage, the attack happened, and obviously as we come out on stage we’re on top of the world as you are when you play, and then you hear about that happening and it’s very scary and it really does bring you back down to earth.”
Jack says that his fan base, “it’s not, like, particular. We have fans spanning all ages, all genders. It’s just a really strange mix. Because of our sound, we don’t really fit in with a lot of bands, so we’ve kind of had to create our own fanbase. And our fanbase is really up for having a joke and not taking things too seriously really, and we kind of respond to that well because we don’t take things too seriously either. There’s a lot of jokes in our songs. We just go about bringing the fun back to music rather than being something too serious, but doing things in a lighthearted way.
