You have gained tremendous buzz in your native country, The Guardian even called you “The New Vaccines,” how do you respond to it?
We try to not pay to much attention to it to be honest. We're very grateful that people are excited by the music but sensible enough to know that focus their attention on the next big thing very soon.
The Vaccines are great and good guys but anyone's that heard our music will know we're pretty different to The Vaccines so you take these things with a pinch of salt.
Plus we're already writing for the next record so we're a little more concerned about that.
Where does the name ‘Zulu Winter’ originate?
With so many bands coming out of London these days, how did you manage to stick out from the crowd?
It was mentioned in your press release that you were inspired by 19th Century literature. How have you manage to write songs about those from another time?
Many in the British press have compared you to Coldplay and White Lies, are you inspired by those bands? Who are some of your biggest inspirations?
No, we don't draw on them for inspiration. They do very well but we tend to draw our inspiration from older lesser known music. We all have very diverse tastes though. We've all been listening to a lot of Modeselektor, Aphex and Four Tet recently which is the first time in a while we've all been listening to the same sort of stuff.
What is the song writing process like?
Many of the songs have perplexing meanings and twists to them lyrically, songs like “Silver Tongue,” “Let’s Move Back to the Front,” are you doing that on purpose to have fun with the listeners attention?
For your debut LP, you signed with Arts and Crafts, how stoked are you to be apart of that family and label?
Who would you love to work with and why?
