Q & A with Musician Andrea Balency

Andrea Balency is a London-based composer, musician and singer, and currently a touring member of UK band Mount Kimbie. ‘Around And Back And Around’, her latest EP, was developed from the concept of creating music based on human body movements, exploring how physicality interacts with the abstract nature of musical form. She’s planning on releasing her first album under the name Len Sisal this year.
We chat to her about all things music, food and PolkaPants 
Where do you work: Mostly in my living room at the piano!
Except when I’m playing shows. 

What is your 'go to' dish to cook for a dinner party: Mexican food.
One of my favourites is Cochinita Pibil tacos (I make my own tortillas and they’re not bad!) 

What item of food best describes your personality: My partner says It’s cherry tomatoes. I’ll take it!

Favourite thing to do on your day off: I love dancing so I go to dance class when I can. But another one of my favourite things is sitting somewhere outside with friends and having a glass of wine.

What Polka’s do you have: The two-tone, my absolute favourite! I also own one of the first utility black ever made, and a special snake skin edition. 

Top recommendation for food in your city: Hands down Maxine Thompson’s house!

Biggest inspiration: My grandmother
