Fast Five: We’re No Heroes

MTTM

Triangle

How did you meet and what’s the story behind your band name?

Before WNH we all go right back to our childhoods. We eventually formed WNH out of a mutual love for all music that gets your blood pumping and your heart racing. We’ve been addicted to it since and continue to pursue those feels. We’re No Heroes as a name came from a set of words written down one night after a dream about falling from a tall building. It summed us up pretty well too, how we feel about music and other things. It can sometimes mean be yourself, don’t lose you.

How would you describe your music?

An amalgam of pumping tempers & beating hearts. Love & hate, mystic moments. Funk & deep grooves.

What have you been up to so far and what can we expect over the coming months?

We love to keep busy and we’ve been real none stop with it all. After releasing our debut EP Quiet Colours, we’ve gained fans from all around the world from the Caribbean to the Far East. We’ve put out a few smaller releases & we’ve been taking our live show around the country as well as supporting some great acts such as Dutch Uncles, Peace, Tribes, Tall Ships, Karin Park, Man Without Country & many more. We’ve done live BBC Sessions as well as gaining air time from BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6 & BBC Wales. Our tracks have been played world wide on Topshop in store radios too as well as many other radio stations around the world. We’re very grateful for all of this and for all the support we get so currently we are working on a follow up to our debut record as well as an exciting collaborative project we’ll be announcing at some point!

If you could duet with anybody who would it be and why?

Cut Copy are one of our biggest influences to this day. Some sort of collab with them would be something special. There are too many great artists, Flying Lotus is super interesting.

What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one album?

If you’re going to be stuck on a desert island you might as well make the most of it! We’d take the tropical sounds of Sweden’s Studio Yearbook 1. That record sounds like romance and heartbreak in far away lands. Forever an influence.
