    Kele on other indie rock bands: “I think the issue for me was I didn’t really want to hear other people’s music. I have no problem with them playing Miley Cyrus in the gym, it’s good for me to know what pop music is right now, but I don’t really want to know what Bastille sound like. I’m sure they’re fine, I’m sure they sound awesome, but I wanna keep that thing at bay.”
