After leaving Arctic Monkey members Andy Nicholson and Jamie Field started up their project, STICKY BLOOD last year and since then, it’s been full steam ahead. The production duo have worked with a list of heavyweights, including Clubs and Spades as well as dropping tracks from their debut EP I.D…and since they’re a massive hit with you guys, I think they deserve the interview seat this month.
NLM: You guys released your debut EP Professional last month Tell us the story behind this project?
SB: We wanted to create a body of work which encompassed the various genres of music we like. Working with Hekky, Snowy & Ajay Carter this was achieved.
NLM: What’s the public’s reception on the EP since its release?
We feel blessed that so many BBC Radio 1 & BBC Radio 1xtra presenters played our debut EP, and then there’s regional radio too. Considering we were unknown artists and all our featured artists were unknown, it’s amazing how well our music was received.
NLM: What’s your favourite track on the EP and why?
Andy – Professional; Jamie – I.D.
NLM: How would you describe your music to potential fans?
SB: Listenable. It’s a difficult one this, how we may describe our music may be very different to how its heard by one of our fans.
NLM: Let’s take a look into your early life…what did you do before getting involved in the music industry/Arctic Monkeys?
We have both always been involved in music. Our lives started here…
NLM: What’s your proudest project outside Arctic Monkeys and Sticky Blood?
We are working on a secret project at the moment with other well-known artists. You will have to wait for the answer on this one. Its staying top-secret for the time being!
NLM: You work with a string of creditable artists, including Terri Walker…but If you were to collaborate with just ONE more chart-topping artist of today, who would it be?
Andy – Kwabs; Jamie – Fetty Wap.
NLM: So What are your plans for 2015 and beyond? Do you have any upcoming gigs?
SB: We have our next EP – Blood is Stickier than Water out on Nov 20th. This EP was recorded down at Red Bull studios in London with Hekky, Terri Walker, a special guest, Coco & Snowy.
NLM: How can potential fans reach you?
