The Boatshed started as a music blog. The aim was to write about music that we thought was really good – that we thought other people would also love. We then started putting on shows with some of those bands that we really believed in. We now put on regular shows in London, publish articles on exciting new music, interview bands and make videos of bands in interesting and amazing places.

The Boatshed is a virtual space where this all meets – a place to hear new bands, find out about interesting live shows in London, read the thoughts of some extremely cool dudes and watch beautiful videos.

If you would like to contribute or get involved in any way then please get in contact. We love talking to people, and love ideas.

Hanne Kolstø [interview]

Indie Kids, Not Listening to Music & Sniffles

After a few rings Hanne answers with full Skype-visuals. I have a policy of never having the camera turned on while talking on Skype because I think it’s distracting being able to see your own face. With this in mind, I explain that my camera is broken and that we’ll have to chat the (semi) old fashioned way - with just voices. I think she is ok with it. With my mind free from face-based distractions I go on.

How are you doing?


I’m ok, but I just had a cold. Sniffling a bit. I think you English call it sniffling, right?

Alex - Yea we do! It’s an onomatopoeia.

Hanne - Nice!

For someone completely new to you and your music - how would you sell yourself? Why should they press play?


I don’t sell myself! I am not about
