Rob Lynch tells us all before hitting Slam Dunk 2018

One week left until Slam Dunk opens its doors. The most awaited festival of the year is not far off. We met up with Rob Lynch who's playing the Acoustic Stage and here's what he told us about his new music, his friendship with James Veck-Gilodi (vocals in Deaf Havana) and his dream of teaming up with Taking Back Sunday.

Broadside's vocalist Oliver Baxter released a new video for a new track called SO LOW. https://youtu.be/DCRlaUeUzt4 Oliver, who's currently working on a solo album (alongside Broadside, don't worry) is trying to experiment with new sounds and new beats. He told us "this project is a testament of all my influences. I kind of just allow my true self come out over these downtempo beats. I’m a massive fan of The Weeknd and Frank Ocean and a proud fan at that. I’m a deep romantic with a grip on how absolutely confusing it can be (love, sex) most of my lyrical content comes from first hand experience or just life lessons I’ve learned from being a silent observer my whole life" To be updated on his solo-project, follow Oliver on Twitter and Soundcloud.
