Southend is certainly a vibe, and the night life is decent! We are privileged to have the seafront so close, and it’s great to just go for a long walk and get lost in your own thoughts. This tends to be a great way of being inspired to write music. Southend is one to watch out for. It’s got talent coming out of all ends with already established Youth Club, Nothing But Thieves, Charlie P & Sonny Green, who are close friends and supporters. This town will take over and we’d go as far as saying will one day compete with the cities close by” – Southchurch
