All We Are are best friends Guro Gikling from Norway (vocals, bass), Luis Santos from Brazil (guitars) and Richard O’Flynn from Ireland (drums/vocals). The trio met at Liverpool’s Institute for Performing Arts in 2011, and draw from the culturally diverse spirit of the city, and its history of radical political resistance as sources of inspiration.
The band released their eponymous debut album on Double Six/ Domino in 2015, and the record is full of dreamy melodies, supple psychedelics and gorgeous midnight disco. Their follow up ‘Sunny Hills’ was released in 2017, and represents a serious step up. Whilst the music is irresistibly danceable and uplifting, it also simultaneously tackles issues of identity, friendship, and what it means to belong.
