Canadian grunge and British indie collide in the swirl of noise created by this Liverpool-based four-piece.

Can you pinpoint a live gig or a piece of music that initially inspired you?
Nat: Gotta be the Gallagher brothers.

Jen: To be honest, I’m wracking my brain here. I have no idea when it happened, I’ve been singing and writing for ages. I think I was into poetry first… I think?

George: Seeing Joe Bonamassa blew my mind and to this day still makes me feel inferior about my musical abilities.

How did you get into music?
Jen: Making music is easier than making friends…

Nat: One fine Sunday afternoon I had a hangover and felt the need to make the world feel as miserable as I did.

Liam: When I was in school, some lad played the drums in front of our whole class and all the girls loved it. I was jealous, I knew there and then that I needed a drumkit.


Do you have a favourite song or piece of music to perform? What does it say about you?
Liam: A song called Rejektor. It’s a stomper, I like anything that makes you want to nod your head aggressively.

Jen: I’m the opposite. Cadaver is my absolute fave to perform. It’s slow and sad and sweet but still perrrty intense.

George: Flamingo has a groove that gets to me each time, it’s infectious.

What do you think is the overriding influence on your songwriting?
Nat: A mean riff and gritty lyrics.

Liam: An underlying dark humour, with a groove.

Jen: Relatable catastrophe with a side of hope.

“Making music is easier than making friends…” Jen, Good Problems

If you could support any artist in the future, who would it be?
Jen: I’m gonna keep it local when I say I wanna do another gig with Hannah’s Little Sister. They’re our buddies too, so it’s always a sick time when you combine forces.

Nat: Get me up with Trampolene

George: I’d love to support Sleaford Mods, they’re the best.


Do you have a favourite venue you’ve performed in? If so, what makes it special?
Liam: We played in the back of a pub in Rhyl once. It was great, not many of the clientele had any teeth, I loved it.

Jen: My favourite was last year at the Kazimier Garden; it was cold, packed and sounded great. I love the way music carries outside, too.

If you had to describe your music in a sentence, what would you say?
Liam: A very welcome, dark but gentle slap in the face.
George: Good music for when you’re angry, sad and slaughtered.

Good Problems play the Bido Lito! Social at the Kazimier Stockroom on 25th April.
