Odd question I know, but they have a very devoted following, so what is it that appeals so much to you?
I love all the references to classic cars and old music (I love motown and 50s stuff, as well as The Clash and punk etc) but for me it's deeper. There's something about the music that really makes me feel something. Sounds a bit silly, I know! The nostalgia is part of it, as are the love songs, but there's something so real to these songs for me. I went to university in York (U.K.) in 2012 when Handwritten came out and I was already a big fan, but for me, walking around that old, old city with those songs on meant something to me, and I also fell in love that year with someone at university, and I think I equated those songs with that and that wonderful city.
