The ultimate quick fire questionnaire for the music and creative minded!
We get under the skin of some of our favourite directors, musicians and bands to reveal what makes them tick musically and creatively, from their favourite band to the latest book in their hand!
We are back with a special double Q&A with directing duo Broken Antenna of Knucklehead! Gustav and Miles grew up together in Camberwell, studied film together at University and naturally share a visual language that is both inventive and playful. With promo's under their belt for the likes of Rag 'n' Bone Man, Jam Baxter, Riz Ahmed and Hak Baker, the multi-talented pair are already big names to watch within music.
