Brooklyn's Miss Eaves is a worldwide feminist shero and she is coming to play for us this Thursday, 26 July at DIY Space for London. We asked her 9 questions ...
1. Who would you most like to cover one of your songs? 
Peaches! She is my all time favorite artists.

2. What was the last song you wrote, where were you when you came up with the idea, what inspired it, and how did it turn out?
Bush or the Push. Earliest this year I had writers block, and I was feeling pressure because I wanted to finish my album. I went to the wax salon to get a bikini wax and she end up giving me a full Brazilian! I thought it was funny so I wrote a song about the experience and pubic hair in general.

3. Which was your favourite gig you’ve a) played and b) watched?  
a.) Played – the whole tour with Tune Yards. It is so cool to be on tour with your heroes but also playing to a sold out audience is so much fun! Especially when people do not know your music at the beginning of the show and you win them over at the end.
b.) Watched – Peaches. She puts on an amazing stage show. The costumes, music and choreography are all so on point.
4. Recommend a record you think our readers might not have heard of. 
 Carole King – Fantasy

5. What’s your best piece of advice for young musicians?
I would say do what you love to do, and make the music you want. Focus on making art you find interesting versus getting likes on social media. I found when I do things that are just for me, that is what people like the most.

6. Your top 3 most beloved albums ever – go.
MIA- Arular
Robyn – Body Talk
Sia – We are Born

7. What are your musical goals? 
I want to make the best art I can make free of the judgement of others

8. What’s the most important thing we need to know about you/your band right now?
I am completely DIY. I design my own merch and website, I art direct/produce and direct my music videos. I book/tour manage my own tours. I bankroll most of my music with money I make from my design company.

9. Give your top 5 contemporary bands/musicians.
Princess Nokia
Kero Kero Bonito
Leikeli 47
Lizzo
Anna Wise

Catch Miss Eaves live on 26 July at DIY Space for London, along with Oracy, Militant Girlfriend, and Gravey
