Brother duo Everyone You Know make their powerful comeback with latest single The Drive accompanied by a hauntingly raw music video.

The duo behind Everyone You Know lift the lid on the harsh realities of their own suburbia with their powerful new lead single The Drive from upcoming second EP ‘Look After Your Pennies’.

After gaining praise for their first release, the brothers are set to sky-rocket in 2019. Authentic, real and raw, they’re a must-see at this year’s Reading & Leeds and Great Escape.

We caught up with Rhys and Harv ahead of their big premiere to ask some intimate questions as our most recent internet crush victims.

Do you remember your dreams? Tell us about a recent dream you’ve had….

Harv: Yeah I do remember some dreams, a recent one was QPR winning the champions league… unfortunately that will probably only ever happy again in another dream.

What is the closest you’ve ever come to death?

Going to the gym.

Tell us, what is your first memory of music?

My dad mixing on the decks is my first proper memory of music.

What’s your star sign? (and are you a typical *whatever your sign is*?)

Cancer, and I have no idea what that means or represents.

Tell us one thing nobody / not many people know about you.

I’m shit hot at Call of Duty.

What was the first song you ever wrote?

It was a hip hop beat that sampled Marvin Gaye & Diana Ross’ “Stop, Look, Listen”.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?

My great uncle told me about the theory that if you practice something for 10,000 hours you become world class in that field. Whether that be true or not it made me want to graft and put in the work so that I can try and be the best I can possibly be in what I do.

What has been your biggest achievement?

So far, probably Soccer AM. That was such a big deal for us as we’ve grown up watching it every Saturday since we were kids.

How was high school?

Couldn’t stand it, didn’t do well either. Think I got 4 GCSE’s. Looking back on it now it was a right laugh and I made some quality mates there.

Who is the most famous person in your DMs?

Probably my dad.

Describe your own personal idea of hell…

A Jonas Blue gig.

Which superpower would you most like to have, and why?

The ability to time travel. Seeing the future would be mad as fuck.

What is one album that totally changed your life?

Biggie Smalls – Ready To Die or The Streets – Original Pirate Material.

Where/what will you be doing at the end of the world?

I have no idea. Hopefully, be with my family and friends, but if not I’ll probably be playing FIFA or eating at home.

Do you remember your dreams?

Rhys: I have mad dreams pretty much every night, but I can never really remember them. And if I do remember them, they sound shit when I say them out loud.

What’s the closest you have come to death?

To be honest I try to avoid death if I can.

What’s your first memory of music?

Probably my dad making me a cassette with a load of tunes on. Outkast – B.O.B,  Bobby Darin – Mack The Knife, Ludacris – Southern Hospitality. Loads of tunes.

What’s your star sign?

I’m a Sagittarius. And unfortunately I don’t pay any mind to that sort of stuff if I’m being completely honest. Sorry.

When was the first time you ever had your heart broken?

I think the closest I have come to heartbreak is when Becks left United to go to Madrid. That crushed the 10 year old me.

Tell us one thing not many people know about you?

My mum is Irish and I used to spend loads of time over there. So until I started school I had an Irish accent.

What would your biography be called?

That’s a hard question. I would probably call it ‘I think we got some issues’. That’s a line out of our tune ‘Our Generation’ and it would be relevant to the content of the book.

What was the first song you ever wrote?

I can’t remember the first tune I ever wrote but I remember the first time I ever wrote lyrics (or tried to) was after hearing P’s and Q’s by Kano. I wrote that verse out so many times and then attempted to write my own. I still have that bit of paper somewhere.

What was the best advice you have ever been given?

Don’t worry about what other people have to say about you. It’s definitely been an important piece of advice for me. If your worrying about what other people are saying about you, then your not focusing on what you should be doing.

What has been your biggest achievement?

Becoming a dad. All day, everyday.

How was high school?

Yeah it was decent. Good seeing the boys everyday. Got decent grades and always had a motive after school. Can’t complain really!

Describe your own personal idea of hell?

I’m sat in a room completely sober while a Liam Payne album is playing on repeat. And every time I try and change the tune it just gets louder. Love Island is probably on a TV in the room too.

What’s a lie you’ve told and what was the fallout?

I’ve never really told any big lies. I’m shit with time so I tend to tell people I’m 5 minutes away, when in reality I’m still at my house and not even dressed. But that’s about it.

What super power would you have and why?

Teleportation. Especially if I can teleport other people with me. Never have to drive a car or buy a plane ticket again.

What is one album that totally changed your life? 

I have to say two (although I could have said a few more), but Kano – Home Sweet Home and Artic Monkeys – Whatever People Say I Am That’s What I Am Not.

When was the last time you cried and why?

I think when my daughter was born, and probably for a good few months after that. Having kids will change you forever… haha. You find yourself getting emotional at things that you would never have even been bothered about before.

What will you be doing at the end of the world?

I’ll be with daughter and all my friends and family having a big old party! Belting out Oasis – Champagne Supernova!
