Conversations in Creativity - Holly Ross, The Lovely Eggs

Conversations in Creativity is our ongoing series of insightful dialogues with people from across creative disciplines. For this Conversations in Creativity series, we're exploring how creatives in the North West of England are responding to current world events. From climate change to Covid-19, human rights to economic uncertainty, we discover how creatives are adapting and transforming their work and outlook.

The Lovely Eggs - The band comprises Holly Ross and her partner in life and band, David Blackwell. Based in Lancaster, North West England, their distinctive sound blurs boundaries and is best described as lo-fi, psychedelic punk rock.

John Robb (Louder than War music journalist and front man for The Membranes), chats with Holly Ross, of two piece band The Lovely Eggs, about their creative practice and how they are responding to current events.
