Everything Everything have always felt like a uniquely Northern experience.
Based in Manchester, the band feel like outsiders, their continually inventive music challenges preconceptions on masculinity, sexuality, politics, and so much more.
Recently the group intimated a desire to work with young musicians, to use their experience to put something back into the local community.
Working with Levi's Music Project they've been able to do just that, with the scheme able to match Everything Everything against some unknown - but incredibly talented - musicians.
Boiler Room were on hand to capture some of this process, and it's an intriguing portrait of an experienced band able to open up to some vastly enthusiastic new talent.
Everything Everything's Michael Spearman explains: "Working with Levi's and Boiler Room on this project was an incredibly inspiring and rewarding experience for us. The young musicians involved were not only very talented but also - perhaps more importantly - equipped with exactly the right attitude. They were positive, supportive of each other, open-minded and constructive. It was a privilege to work with them and we were amazed at the music they wrote together."
"As well as the music produced, the lasting legacy of this project is the studio that was created, which will be used by more young musicians in future. This is an incredibly good outcome for Manchester and grassroots music generally since spaces for creativity in cities are increasingly rare."
