I love the intimacy of small venues, I really do, I like that look that people have that they feel like they're special and they can hear and they can see the band as well.
Shoniwa quotes
I love dressing up. Iím from a huge African family and grew up in a really colorful place. The way I dress reflects my environment and wanting to take people into a fantasy world for half an hour.
Shoniwa
We are able to speak for ourselves through our music rather than being defined and put into the spotlight in a very male kind of groomed way for an obviously predominantly male audience.




Shoniwa Shingai quotes
Arctic Monkeys are a great band, but bands like that sometimes spend a lot of time reminding people about the shitiness of reality. I donít want to sing for half an hour, reminding people about how shit Sheffield is ó unless itís for one verse or a joke.
Shoniwa Shingai
It's quite spiky, quite dramatic, theatrical rock 'n' roll really.
Shingai Shoniwa quotes
I think of the Ramones when I think of music that can save your life, but Iím not so sure about a band like Fall Out Boy who appears to make music in vein or that, at least, doesnít sound like something they would die for.
Shingai Shoniwa
We're just going to play the hell out of it until they can't take it anymore.
Shoniwa Shingai quotes
When someone like Kurt Cobain or Jack White comes out, they didnít go, ďHe sounds just like Muddy Waters,Ē did they? They just said, ďHeís great, he sounds like him.Ē When women come out and men write about them, they tend to write about them in a way that other men can understand, which sometimes can seem a bit patronizing.
