We're nosy. We like to know what life is like for our favourite pop stars. Proper life, y'know. Not this fancy glam sham they'd like us to believe. That's why we're asking some of them to give us an account of exactly what they get up to in a 24 hour period. This month... Kieran Shudall from Circa Waves.
I get up at 6.30am
to go for a run. I like the brisk cold air hitting my sleep covered eyes. I run down the road no more than 4 miles per hour as that is all it’s all my legs allow. Their is a huge sense of achievement running this early before anyone else its awake.
I have a cup of tea and sometimes a coffee if I’m feeling particularly sleep depraved. The craze of coffee is something that has not passed me by un noticed, my friends will tell you I’ve been known to have a flat white as late as 8 o’clock, which plays havoc with my sleep, but i don’t mind on the odd occasion.
I feed my herd of rare mountain goats.
I like to prepare a late breakfast. some would call this brunch, but those people are uneducated pricks. A wheat toast forms the base for an avocado and egg extravaganza (eggstravaganza), which undoubtedly will be wolfed down in 4 to 5 minutes.
By this time I’m in the deep, dark belly of writing and recording demos, AKA future hits. I leave Colombo on at all times in my studio as i feel his funny face and his quick witted turn of phrase really keep me on my toes. I layer up instruments like a homemade music lasagne ready to be eaten by the always hungry public.
arrives and it’s time for my nap. I sleep in the kitchen as to not disturb my cat who sleeps most of the day in my bed.
I like to make a move towards the kitchen to start a delicious dinner. As most of my day is busy I find it best if i mash my five fruit and veg a day up into a paste, which forms the base of a tasty sauce for my meal.
and I will be absolutely shattered from the massive day that preceded. I’ll listen to the radio and gently nod off.
I’ll take myself up to bed to go asleep. Not before brushing my teeth and washing my face, obviously.
Give all this a try
Awwwww, innit nice? The latest instalment of 'Notes on a Conditional Form' is here.
At the back end of last year, Mystery Jets were all prepped to drop their brand new album. Then they weren’t. Six months later and a band-member down, they’re back on track (pretty much) and ready to go.
As the music world reacts to the COVID-19 pandemic, we thought it was best to update you on what we're planning to do.
Tones And I is a name that has taken over radio airwaves since unexpected smash ‘Dance Monkey’ flew to the Number 1 spot around the world. For Aussie popster Toni Watson, the journey from the busking unknown was really somethin’ else.
