Is it true you were scouted for the group while working in a shop!?
Courtney: Me and Alex were spotted in a clothing store, we didn't know each other, but our stylist, who was friends with our creative director, had an idea for a girl band, they liked our style and asked if we could sing. We went down (to meet them) and next thing we knew we were in the band – then we met Karis and we all got thrown together.
You were formed in January 2011, how have the last 18 months been?
Karis: They've been a crazy rollercoaster, but we love every minute and appreciate all of it.
Courtney: We're just working hard towards our goals and dreams.
What are your hopes for the album?
Alex: We want our new album to show every side to us, before we got released we spent seven months in the studio getting to know each other and working on the album. We want to show all the hard work.
Who are your inspirations?
Courtney: Our inspirations vary from old school Motown – which is quite a running theme in our music, Diana Ross, The Supremes, right through to girl bands. We love The Spice Girls, TLC, Karis is a big fan of rap so it's quite an eclectic mix.
You've got a really strong style, where do you shop?
We love (East London's) Brick Lane, we like to be accessible so our fans can afford it too. We like to switch it up with a bit of high street, bit of designer, bit of vintage.
Any love interests on the scene?
Karis: We're all in partnerships and really happy. Right now we're just focused on the music.
What do you see in the next six months?
Courtney: Hopefully another single, another album out. We've got our first headline tour, and want to continue to gig and make music. Which is what we're all about!
Have you been ever star struck?
Karis: When we went to The Brit Awards I met Emma Bunton and my jaw was on the floor! We love the Spice Girls and reaching that kind of level in our career would be just amazing. They are our icons.
Why did you want to get involved with the Children in Need Musical Campaign? (The girls will perform as part of Thriller in the West End with profits from the evenings tickets going to Chidlren in Need).
Karis: It was really important for us to get involved, we've grown up with Children in Need.
Alex: I studied musical theatre and Kaz went to Brit school so it's something we're really excited about.
