TENDER,
The TVD First Date

“It took a little while for me to get into music really, other than singing along to my Dad’s records in the house. He’d play Led Zeppelin and The Who pretty regularly.”

“I was always out playing football with friends when I was younger, but that started to change when my Dad one day came home with four records for me. He gave me Oasis’ Definitely Maybe and What’s The Story Morning Glory as well as Blur’s Parklife and The Great Escape. I immediately became obsessed with all four of them and I’d play them on rotation over and over. As a result I never preferred Oasis over Blur or vice versa. I used to annoy the hell out of my parents as the record player was in the corner of our kitchen and I’d just sit on the counter listening to them while they were trying to cook.

That was my real introduction into discovering music and I ended up digging through more of my parents’ record collection. It wasn’t that long before I started listening to Sgt. Pepper’s by The Beatles, but then a few years later I was swiftly told off when I tried scratching with it, having just watched a Limp Bizkit video. Obviously. Other notable scratching experiments include 10cc and a Bob Marley live record. Cool.

Unfortunately at the moment we haven’t got a record player in our apartment, but I’m looking into hooking one up with our Sonos system over the next couple of months. We’ve acquired quite a few records, some of my favourites being the three Father John Misty LPs, Sylvan Esso, and Charles Bradley.

In London, Sister Ray Records in Soho is where we’d typically go to pick up records, but we’re also fans of Banquet Records and had a great time looking through Rough Trade in Nottingham the other day when we were touring.”
