In 4 words, how would you describe your music

"Genuine craft music beer"

Have you been to Vantastival before? If so, what was your favourite memory?

What would you call your campervan, and why?

"Swampy Duck, the working title of Van Morrison's first EP."

Other than on stage, where are we most likely to find you at Vantastival?

"Watching Jinx Lennon, The Hot Sprockets, Saint Sister, Megacone, and David Keenan's sets."

What can we expect from a live show?

"The happiest happy Hatchy boys, giving their souls to the people. Bring your dancing shoes and your shiftin' shirt!"

The last text message you sent is your next album title. What is it?

"I want ice cream now!"

You’re releasing your debut EP later this year. What can we expect?

"Sweet and sour sounds, shredded beats, 3 & 1 harmonies, prawn cracker piano, & free delivery."

What are your musical plans for 2016?

"Our plans for 2016 are to continue to soak up the art scene in Maynooth that has been fostered by Common Grounds Collective." 

Hatchlings play the GoldenPlec stage on Saturday at this year's Vantastival.
