Suzi and Lewis Cook are buying winter clothes for a show in Iceland this weekend.

"For some reason it didn't even cross my mind that it would be cold" laughs Lewis. "The clue is in the name".

Suzi and Lewis, partners in music and marriage, make up Free Love together - an unassuming musical pairing where the clue is in the name.

Hailing from Glasgow's south side, Free Love celebrated their first SAY Award nomination in 2018 for debut album, 'Full Ashram Devotional Ceremony' under the moniker Happy Meals. Since then, they are wed and have changed their name to reflect their vibrant, chaotic, energetic sound, which will be on full display at the Glue Factory for the Great Western Festival on the 23rd of November.

"It's going to be our first Glasgow show in a long time" said Lewis. "It's been three months" notes Suzi. "It's going to be a special night, because we don't often play in Glasgow."

The festival will be putting over 60 acts on in different locations around the city, mixing local acts like Free Love with UK-wide acts like Art School Girlfriend and Big Joanie. It's perfect for a band like Free Love a unique and experiential party.

"I think it's going to be a special one" says Lewis. "It's in the Glue Factory, which is a really cool space".

"It's like a blank canvas in there, which is really cool because you have your space to do your own thing" says Suzi. "It's so great that the festival is using all these places around Glasgow that aren't really well utilised. I'm looking forward to go to shows in a space that I wouldn't usually be in around the city".

The festival will also be a chance for new audiences to become acquainted with Free Love, perhaps having only known either Lewis or Suzi in their past musical lives. Although having known each other for more than a decade, Suzi and Lewis only started making music together five years ago.

"We did a course at the analogue only Green Door Studio in Finnieston" said Suzi. "They were running courses called NEET courses, for those out of education and employment, and we were able to use recording time. We only went in with track names, started jamming and then thought we should make something out of this" said Suzi.

"A lot of what we've done has been influenced by chance" said Lewis. "It's quite funny sometimes how these events synchronise up in these ways. Most of what we've done has been based on instinctive decisions. We were together for years before we made music together and that's how we got started - by chance".

I'm sure many people will come across Free Love in a similar manner on the 23rd. They'll be equally as lucky.
