Over the last year we’ve been fortunate enough to speak with some awesome up and coming bands about some of our favourite new albums. But we wanted more. MORE!

So, as the end of 2018 draws ever closer, we decided to find out how they’ve been doing since we initially caught up with them and what they’ve got planned for the year ahead.

First up we hear from Tali Källström, the livewire vocalist of Cardiff noise merchants Estrons, who put out their killer debut LP ‘You Say I'm Too Much, I Say You're Not Enough’ back in October.

We spoke with you in September to discuss your first album. What have you been up to since then? I know you're coming to the end of your headline UK tour. How has that been? Are the fans reacting well to the new material?

It's been incredible. I think some fans were taken aback by the slower songs we introduced, but the plan was never to release a hard hitting, 10 track, fast-paced album. So far our EPs and singles have been snippets of our personality. [They’re] the dating process—the album is the relationship part where you get to see who we really are. Yes, sometimes we cry and forget to clean up.

Are you currently working on new material, or are you focusing on touring?

We're doing everything. There's no rest. We're working on the tour for this album and what else we have to juice out of it. But we're always looking forward, we've got some exciting new stuff that I'm itching to share.  

You've got your biggest headline London show to date on February 7 at the Scala. How are you feeling about it?

It hasn't really hit me yet. I can imagine it will be life-affirming. We've got plans to make it extra special, just to say thank you to all the fans for their organic and undying support over the years. It'll feel like a little get together in a large space.

What have been your best moments of the year? Please let us know all the lovely details.

I think for us it's when we see the reaction of the fans during and post-show. We've had emails from people, and people approach us, saying we've saved or changed their lives, people telling us that what we're doing is making a difference and to never stop.

I guess from the discomfort of our broken down flats or council estate homes or friends’ sofas sometimes we wonder if we really are connecting, or it can seem hard to realise that we really are making a difference, so the pay off comes when we hear things like that. It's genuinely touching and is a huge, huge part of why we do it.

What are the band's plans for 2019?

Touring, music, videos, festivals. We just won't stop.

Any resolutions for the new year?  

I already gave up smoking pre-Christmas and it's the best thing I've ever done. I urge anyone who wants to give up to invest in hypnotherapy, it’s life changing/saving. I think on a professional front we want to learn to enjoy the little wins and the journey, not just the bigger picture. After all, it's the smaller strokes that make the painting.

‘You Say I'm Too Much, I Say You're Not Enough’ is out now.
