Virginia Wing: the Manchester pop duo fighting the 'indie edgelord' sexists

Faced with ranks of leering male fans on tour with Hookworms, Alice Merida Richards and Sam Pillay – creators of one of the albums of the year – played in front of an ‘end rape culture’ sign.

Absolutely superb interview with Virginia Wing and Laura Snapes in the Guardian this week. They have made one of the years finest LPs no doubt and they are people we want to hear a great deal more from; interesting, kind, aware and very switched on.
