The Faders Earn Their Instrument Playing Respect
‘Top Of The Pops’ caught up with the Faders for a Q&A, and asked the girl pop-rockers who has treated them like they were stupid in the last year.
“Well… I think because we’re girls and we play instruments, a lot of hardcore musicians who do the equipment and the sound used to take the piss out of us,” singer Molly Lorenne responded. “They were like, ‘Oh you don’t know what you’re doing cos you’re girls!’ But I think after like, the second day, they started treating us a bit better, cos we do know what we’re doing. It’s better to be underestimated than overestimated I suppose. But yeah, people do that a lot, and it can be annoying.”
