Peking Duk dynamic duo, Reuben Styles and Adam Hyde, caught our attention when they posted this photo on the socials, live from our Electronic Day at SXSW. So much so that we had to find out more about these guys and when we asked they didn’t disappoint. Reuben and Adam revealed their hidden Star Wars character and their fave bands amongst other things, that kinda make us like them even more.
What word or habit freaks you out?
Adam: The word silver is really crook to me. Also people that chomp their food like it’s a public service announcement is real crook too.
What would you be doing if you weren’t in Peking Duk?
Reuben: I reckon Adam would be a rapper, a hip hop label A&R, or a TV presenter. Perhaps one day he might become all 3 haha. I have no idea what I would be, when I was younger I trained to be a pilot and was enrolled in civil engineering at Uni. Music producing was a pretty unexpected but incredibly exciting turn for us.
What is your favourite Peking Duk Memory?
A: Every day has been getting funner and funner in all honesty. We just got back to Aus after partying for 4 days straight in Washington DC, that was a magical time. I think every memory that’s happening right now as we are working on finishing the debut album is very, very exciting.
If you were characters in the Lego Movie or Star Wars, who would you be?
R: We haven’t seen the Lego movie. Definitely on the bucket list though! In Star Wars I imagine Adam would be Chewie, a hairy animal with guns that likes to party. I would love to think I already am Yoda. Ready to pass on my knowledge to the next saviours across the galaxy.
What is the greatest piece of advice you’ve been given?
A: “Don’t take yourself seriously, you’ll just look like a w@nker. Have a good time”
What are your top 5 fave bands of all time?
R: The Strokes, Tame Impala, Radiohead, Midnight Juggernauts, The Beatles
