1. Never Wanted To Dance Auld 3:21

Based in Kilburn, London, Auld was started by Thomas Pitts as a solo project. They currently perform as a 6-piece, with Pitts joined by Alan Giles, Brian Wortman, Rachel Hearne, Glen Giles, and James Milner.

Thomas Pitts’ fascination with music began with an obsession over the Spice Girls at 9 years of age. He wrote songs to the tunes of their tunes and also to the tunes of songs from the Lion King. Fast forward to the appearance of the Strokes, which influenced Pitts to form a rather young band emulating that sound.

In terms of his songwriting with Auld, Pitts denotes the following as musical influences: Grimes, Kate Bush, R.E.M., Tom Waits, The National, The Pixies, Pavement, Radiohead, Arcade Fire, Interpol, Earl Sweatshirt and The Flaming Lips. “Something that also really interested me here was working with the structure of a song.”
