Everywhere released their most recent single, ‘Moments’, back in 2017 and their fantastic EP, Fiction Act back in 2016, but have been busy doing a whole range of things, from writing to gigging and much more, since then. We were lucky enough to get some time to catch up with them and chat about a few things. Here’s what they had to say…


Hey, how’s it going?
Hey man! Awesome, how about you??

Very well thank you. Obviously you recently released your awesome new single, ‘Moments’, and the reception seems to have been great. Is this a sign of a new EP or album in the pipeline?
Thank you so much! Yes, ‘Moments’ was a sort of in the middle kind of track to keep the juice flowing. We’re currently penning another bunch of tunes that should end up on another EP, hopefully around this fall!

What other future plans have you guys got?
We’re looking at getting out on another tour to promote some new music, also doing loads of writing for film and TV in Hollywood. We’ve become kind of a factory 🙂

That sounds incredible! Where do you take inspirations from when writing your music?
We recently discovered a pretty neat trick, think it was Taylor Swift who said it. Basically, we write down fun and cool titles as they come to mind and during our daily writing sessions, we work these titles around tracks that we make. It’s an easy was to stay creative and never let the process stall.

What’s your usual process for writing/recording?
Our frontman Max has his daily sessions, when he sits down and builds tracks in Logic, he then takes those tracks into writing sessions with London writers and producers and builds demos. He then takes those demos to the rest of the band who expands on those arrangements. When we have a good amount of songs, or sketches we then head into a bigger studio such as Abbey Road, or if we happen to be over in LA we go to East West where we create the final master.

Wow! Abbey Road…pretty cool. So, if you could do a collaboration with anyone, who would it be and why?
It would be a pure pleasure to work with Max Martin. Just for the pure fact that he’s had so many Billboard hits and is a fellow Swede.

What music have you been listening to most recently?
Mostly our own, as we’re currently doing loads of writing. Other than that it’s the usual suspects, a good mix of classic rock and top 40 hits. Recently rediscovered Echo & the Bunnymen, The Cure and loads of other nice little nuggets from the past.

If you had to cover a recent chart song, which song would it be and why?
It would probably be ‘Rockstar’ by Post Malone, such a masterpiece.

What makes a great show for you?
One where people turn up and go nuts. A sold-out show is always a great one.

Do you have any pre-show or post-show rituals?
The singer, Max, always stays sober but drinks a Red Bull while the rest of the band get hammered.

Haha! Has anything scary ever happened to you on tour?
This would be a perfect place to deliver a well crafted lie, but unfortunately, besides a few heavily overweight old women going for a good grab from behind, that large disaster is yet to arrive *knock on wood*

Do you have any other passions outside of music?
Politics, painting and reading.

What really grinds your gears?
Death Metal, not the greatest thing since bread. Wouldn’t categorically call it bad but generally it’s not up our street.

What’s the best film you’ve seen lately?
I must say The Disaster Artist was amazing, just had me nailed from beginning to end and would warmly recommend it to anyone.

If, in say 20 years time, a film was made about your life, who would you want to play you?
Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Edward Norton and Mark Wallberg, directed by Michael Bay.

Haha! That’d be one EPIC movie! If you could be any chocolate bar, which one would you be?
Snickers.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
Focus on your craft and the rest will follow. People tend to overestimate their skills and always wonder why the success never happens.

Everywhere are a London-based four-piece band who have already received a lot of attention for their lead single, Some Other Dude, which has received over 1 millions plays on Spotify and a feature on BBC Introducing London.

The opening track, ‘Shades At Night’, has all the makings of a massive anthem and sure kicks off the EP with a bang. It’s a song that is begging to be chanted along to, by any audience and would sit perfectly inside a massive stadium. It’s a monster of a song and very reminiscent of something that The KillersThe 1975 or maybe even Take That would produce, but it definitely still has their own unique mark on it!

‘Heroine’ is a twisted tale of love that has beautiful vocal harmonies and gang vocals that can’t help but draw you in. ‘Some Other Dude’ has some seriously cool effects on the guitars and this song is itching to be danced to; it’s got some major funk to it! The EP closes with ‘Let It Go’, which although a much mellower offering, is just as captivating as the other songs. The synth sounds throughout the EP are so on point and current and here they just add to the epic, euphoria that builds throughout the track.

The production of this EP is superb too – it’s got a cool, edgy, funky pop sound that enhances the songs perfectly. This is thanks, in part, to American producer, Mark Needham, who’s worked with the likes of The KillersWalk The MoonThe 1975Imagine Dragons and P!nk.

This whole EP has been crammed full of top-notch production, quality song-writing and fantastic, catchy melodies – it’d be quite easy to get caught out busting a move or two or belting along to it in your car or just about anywhere it’s played. I honestly love this EP and the band too! One heck of an EP!

I’m sure these guys are going to be huge and if you haven’t heard of them already, be sure to check out this incredible EP…I’m just sad there aren’t more tracks! Bring on the album!
