So You Wanna Be A Pop Star, David and Jack from Llovers?

Putting wannabe pop stars through their paces.

Being a pop star is a serious job. You can’t just walk through the door and get started. You need to have a proper interview first. This month’s applicants are David and Jack from Llovers. The board will see you now.

What can you tell us about yourselves?
We are David and Jack from Teesside Pop sensationsLlovers. We met while working at McDonald’s and bonded over a love of Hanson and Ronan Keating.

Why do you want to be a pop star?
David: I’d quite like to one day have the audacity to wear a headset microphone when I play guitar. Only pop stars can get away with that.

How would your bandmates describe you?
Jack: Like a married couple, always bickering but ultimately there’s a lot of love there really. Sort of.

What are your best and worst qualities?
Jack: Collectively, our best quality is our ability to sleep anywhere, which makes playing across the country dead easy. David sleepwalks sometimes though, that’s probably our worst quality.

What is your biggest failure?
Jack: Hopefully not this band

What accomplishment are you most proud of?
David: We once got extra food tokens at a festival we played for playing such a good set. That was nice.

Where do you see yourself in five years?
David: Hopefully by bringing years and years of hurt to the country to an end. We’re going to bring it home. Eurovision 2023, watch out.

What is your salary expectation?
David: Well obviously beers, crisps and hummus because that’s what all bands get paid in.

Taken from the October issue of Dork. Llovers’ new single ‘Go Get Her, Go Getter’ is out now.
