With their much anticipated debut full-length ‘Whatever’ set to be released next month, Sheffield emo duo Nai Harvest are the latest band to be featured as part of “If I…" feature.

Being self-proclaimed "Pizza eatin, kitty pettin, tea drinkin emo rock whores" guitarist/vocalist Ben Thompson and drummer Lew Currie don’t take themselves to serious and are out to simply have fun, yet as the duo show in this feature, they have a passion for music and having a strong DIY ethic.

If I could re-record one song it would be…
Nai Harvest: Our track ‘Tim Helped Me Get Over It’, we could do it a lot better now.

If I could re-live one tour/show it would be…
NH: Wurzburg, Germany on our European tour with Hindsights. So many stage dives.

If I had the chance to play one venue it would be…
NH: The biggest venue in the world… so long as it was packed out.

If I could play with one band it would be…
NH: So many, but a tour with Title Fight would be nothing short of amazing.

If I could play with any person living or dead it would be…
NH: Big boy Kurt Cobain, weird riffs and silly drugs all night.

If I could bring back any band that have split up, it would be…
NH: Knapsack, Mineral or Grown Ups.

If I wasn’t playing music, I would be…
NH: Skateboarding / drawing a lot more.

If I could play a different genre it would be…
NH: A straight up Kids Like Us rip off skater hardcore punk band.

If I could have written any song it would be…
NH: ‘Call Me Maybe’ (Carly Rae Jepson) because I’d be rich.

If I could have written any album it would be…
NH: Brand New – ‘The Devil and God Are Raging Inside of Me.’ Flawless.

If I could headline any festival, it would be…
NH: Download, but only if we shared a stage with Slipknot or FEST in Florida.

If I could organise my own festival, the bands playing would be…
NH: Fleetwood Mac, The Smiths and Justin Timberlake. Not kidding.

If I could play any other instrument, it would be…
NH: Bass.

If I could give one piece of advice to a new band, it would be…
NH: Don’t take yourselves too seriously, keep a strong DIY ethic and play as many shows and you can. Just have fun with it!
