What’s your favourite restaurant when you’re in London?
Kitty Fisher’s is high on my list – I love quirky things so the decor really appeals to me.

I’ve been going to Sichuan in Amsterdam forever, it’s great if you love spicy Chinese food like me.

What’s your favourite festival to play at?
This year Annie Mac’s Lost & Found festival in Malta really blew me away. I played two great shows and the crowd’s feedback was wild!
