You may have heard achingly cool band The Roly Mo's new single 'I'll Be Happy When You Die' on Radio 1's Indie Show with Jack Saunders. It's where they first caught my eye (ear?).

I had a chat with the Joe, Jack and Lewis from the promising Glasgow band to find out more about them and their love of The Spice Girls.

How are you?
TRM: Good.

Can you tell me about how you started as a band?
TRM: We basically met each other mutually. We met at a festival (T in the Park). We got talking and that was it.

Can you tell me about your latest single ('I'll Be Happy When You Die')?
TRM: We don't really know what it's about. We wanted to grab people's attention. It's not as cold as it sounds to be honest.

How does it feel to get played on Radio 1?
TRM: Kinda surreal. We were sitting waiting for it to happen. It was more nerve-wracking than any gig [but now we're] absolutely buzzing.

Who are your musical influences?
TRM: For all of us, it's all quite different. We all bonded over The Strokes and Arctic Monkeys. Also, the Glasgow scene gave us a lot of drive, like The Dunts. The Spice Girls are brilliant.

Do you have any live shows coming up?
TRM: We [played] with The Dunts at The Garage [last Saturday]. It sold out. We've got a surprise coming up in the new year. 

What's next for you?
TRM: We've got an EP coming out next year, around summer time. [And] gigging all over the place.
