Your brother, Tom Cowan, is also in the music industry as part of The Horrors. Was music something you were both introduced to at a young age and was it something your family encouraged?
My parents both played instruments, but it wasn’t like a mad musical household! It was an artistic household, both my parents are into photography and some of the people they worked with were musicians. My first guitar was a gift from a musician who worked with someone who was a photographer. Music was just something me and Tom did together from about primary school age, we just always had an interest in it. I used to really piss him off, sitting outside his bedroom door and playing James Bond themes.
