He said: “When we met, we were all booked on a show where we were all booked for the same thing a year and a half ago.

Ben went on to speak of how there is a sense of freedom within the band.

He explained: “We’re not really influenced by anyone because were kind of making it up as we go along.

“It’s kind of our own thing which is the most amazing thing there is such freedom.”

But the former Phats & Small star later admitted the music industry has changed music’s value.

Ben said: “I think a lot because at the time we came out people valued music a lot more because I think there was more investment in it.

“In order to own music, you had to go to a record shop, and you can place a value on it.

“Over the last 10 years, there has been less value because of the streaming aspect.”

Amid the pandemic, Ben added that music has become valuable again.
