Welcome to the UK! What are your three favourite things about being over here?

Thank you so much! My first favourite thing is the British accent. I always try and do it myself but I’m never successful because it’s pretty difficult. The second thing I would say is I’m dying to eat the fish and chips, I’m just trying to find the best spot to eat it. Other than that, I’m in London right now and the city is just beautiful. Beautiful houses and the architecture, I love it.

Your debut single ‘Somebody’ is released here this Sunday, how excited are you to finally be releasing it in the UK?

I’m very excited. I’m super excited to see that it’s already being played on the radio before it’s officially released and the video’s on TV which is great. All the response to it is so positive so I’m really happy. Continue reading Interview: We find out which ‘Somebody’ Natalie La Rose is singing about in her hit single.

Olly Murs’ music video for ‘Beautiful To Me’ has premiered and we are now in a ball sobbing.

Olly Murs’ new video dropped at midnight and while there’s no two music videos the same by him, this one has us with tears streaming down our faces. WHY, OLLY? WHY SO EMOSH?!

Mursy boy only appears for like 30 seconds in the actual video and while we would love to stare at his face for the full four minutes, it’s actually a super sweet music video with so many feels that it hurts. Take a look to see what we mean…

WE’RE NOT CRYING, YOU ARE.

Oh the feels. The FEELS. Please excuse us for the rest of the day because we are too emotionally unstable to do anything else but eat Ben & Jerry’s and sob.

What did you think of the video? Feel as emotional as we do? Let’s sob together on Twitter @maximumpop

Talon Saga: ANDPOP terrorises civilians with dragon scare prank

Sure, everybody says they love dragons when they’re in books, but when a real one suddenly jumps out at them in the high street, suddenly it’s all “Ahh!” and “You’re Satan!”

Well, okay, maybe not real. Maybe it’s just a guy in a mask, but the principle of the matter is, people don’t react well to surprise attacks from dragons. Surprise surprise.

How involved do you guys want to be when making the upcoming album?

Casey: Everything.

Barclay: 100%!

How much time do you guys get to chill and have pizza with your mates and stuff?
