With new single Combine out today, we caught up with indie band The Strands to get to know them a little better.

So, tell us a bit about yourself and what you do?

We are The Strands, a 4 piece indie/alternative rock band. We all met at college and it was clear from the start that we all had a very similar mindset. We want to be a massive band, there’s no doubting that! But if we can genuinely make people happy along the way, that would be class! More specifically, my name is Dean and I am the singer/rhythm guitarist.

What’s the first record you ever bought?
Is This It – The Strokes.

What’s your guilty pleasure musically?
The New Monkey.

Favourite film of all time?
Back To the Future, hands down.

Your guilty pleasure film?
High School Musical…

If you could recommend one TV series to binge watch, what would it be?
I recently watched Stranger Things. That was fantastic but theres only 2 series so you can’t binge too much 🙁

Your favourite book?
Of Mice and Men. (The only thing I’ve read)

Who or what makes you laugh the most?
Adam Sandler films.

Who or what makes you sad?
When dogs are sad.

If you had super power, what would it be?
The ability to fly, that would be insane!

And finally, you get to play a board game with any three famous people from history, who do you choose and what’s the board game?
It has to be Cluedo like, that’s the best one going! Let’s say…Will Smith, Freddie Mercury and Robin Williams.
