Speaking about their inclusion, Nimmo say: “It feels amazing and really unexpected to be picked for MTV’s Brand New. We have been hibernating doing our album, so it feels amazing to be recognised quite quickly.” 

WSTRN add: “It feels crazy to be in the Top 10 of MTV Brand New. We all grew up on MTV! 2015 has been a rollercoaster but in a good way, it’s been really fun. Something new has happened every day. In the beginning of 2015 if you were to have asked all of us where would we have been in a couple of months, none of us would have said we would be sitting here.”
