When asked whether a collaboration could happen in the future, Este is quick to respond. “I would love that. Apparently Alex Turner came to our show when we opened for The xx in LA. Thank god we didn’t know while we were playing. I would have been totally starstruck. My brain may have melted into my throat and I may have thrown up my brain. If I ever met him, I’d become like a five-year-old and start doing my ABCs or singing ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’…””—Este Haim on The Arctic Monkeys, and Alex Turner himself. (via thehipwaffle)
