So far on Before They Knew Better, we’ve spoken to Norwegian pop sensation Sigrid and the Mercury Prize-shortlisted Olivia Dean about childhood memories, teenage obsessions, and everything in between. This week, we welcome Bastille frontman Dan Smith to the airwaves to talk about soundtracking David Attenborough, being a BIG fan of Scream 3, and wearing a tiger onesie for Bastille’s Glasto debut.
“I’m obsessed with Glastonbury”, says Dan, speaking on the podcast. “Ever since first going, the year that Amy Winehouse and Jay Z played on the Pyramid Stage. Me and my friends just waited down the front on the barrier for the entire day, waiting for those gigs. So when we started the band, it was a big deal to me to get to play there.”
Before They Knew Better is DIY’s new podcast digging into the wins, woes and wtfs of your favourite musicians’ early years, hosted by Lisa Wright and Giles Bidder, with a new episode landing every Tuesday morning.
