What do you do and why do you do it?
I'm a musician in the band Wolf Alice. I love writing songs, and performing is a big thrill for me. 

How did you start your career?
I entered a local songwriting competition and won! That gave me the confidence that maybe I was quite good at this.

What was your big break?
Selling out Shepherd's Bush Empire was a biggy. 

What are you working on at the moment?
Promoting our debut album, touring, practising, writing. 

We're celebrating the 35th Birthday Issue of i-D, when did you last celebrate and what was the occasion?
Our bassist Theo's 23rd birthday by shooting fireworks off the roof of the Hawley Arms in Camden. 

What excites you most about tomorrow?
New conversations, ideas and experiences. 

Tell us one thing that no one knows about you.
I'm a gold medallist tin whistle player.
