You have chosen an extremely long moniker for one person, what’s the meaning behind the name?

It’s a secret.

Is there a specific song that makes all your live shows complete?

Different crowds react to different tracks. The singles always get a bigger response because they are known better, but I can never predict at what moment in the set things will really connect.

Tell us about your upcoming debut LP.

It’s nearly finished. I haven’t got a name for it yet, I really should think about that … hmmmm. I am genuinely very excited to play it to people, but that will have to wait for the right moment.

What inspires your onstage performance, costumes, and setlists?

Boredom.

Joe Goddard, from Hot Chip released your three EP’s from his label Greco-Roman. How did Goddard discover your music?

It was actually Alex Waldron who runs Greco-Roman with Joe and Dom Mentsh who got things going. They invited me to play one of their parties and it seemed to work so I started sending them demos and talking about putting a record out. Working with them was a brilliant start for me and they definitely had a big influence on the way I work now.

The past couple of weeks have been pretty busy for you. Between your first American single “Trouble” being released, along with showcasing at CMJ Marathon. What’s in store for TEED the rest of the year?

Finishing that record, more touring, supporting Friendly Fires, and I’ve remixed Lady Gaga… and more stuff. A lot basically, but my main aim is to get new music out to people as soon as possible, it just takes longer than you’d ever imagine.

What songs are you currently listening to on repeat?

SOS Band – Tell Me If You Still Care

This Thursday, you are performing in Miami for the first time. What can we expect from your set at Bardot?

Expect nothing, be pleasantly surprised.
