On Friday, 15th May 2020, we invited some of our favourite emerging artists from around the world to come on-air, sing a bit, chat a bit to help lift the blues we’re all feeling right now. It was: LIVE FROM HOME.
Our first guests on the line were three boys who have well and truly taken the world by storm.
Reece, Blake and George – better known as New Hope Club – are the group that, if you haven’t heard of them yet, you will do very soon. Their debut, self-titled album charted at #5 in the UK Album Charts earlier this year and they’ve just kicked off a new album campaign with single “Worse”.
All three boys called in as our first artists on this edition of LIVE FROM HOME for what was a very messy Skype call… but we made it work! They spoke to James Gilmore about the inspirations behind “Worse”, the pressure around album #1 and what they’ve been up to in self-isolation.
