What inspired you to first start making music? And how did you come to be in your current incarnation? Or if you prefer, a brief bio about you.
We have very different musical backgrounds and motivations. But what brought us together is that we have a very similar taste for music. We felt inspired by each other and what comes out when we play together.
Provide us with some info about your latest release…
In March 2018 we released our last EP, “Espiral”. In summer we produced the music video for one of the songs, “Dulce Depresion” which we are very excited to release in January.
Which ones would you consider your main influences both music-wise & non-music-wise?
Music-wise: Tame Impala, Alt-J, Jungle, Portishead, Björk, Radiohead, Stromae, CocoRosie, Bomba Estéreo, Django Django, Arctic Monkeys, Moderat, Nicola Cruz, and all the classics….
Rubén: All the changes life offered to me, all the people I met in Berlin. And the travels and big decisions I had to take. Also my childhood and Arts in general.
Nadine: For one, my parents, who really gave me an open view on the world and encouraged me to explore my creative side. Also the world of Theater and Film.
Tim: The step to move to Berlin. And my best friend Tomás. (This is a joke from Rubén)
In what way does your sound differ from the rest genre-related artists/bands and why should we listen to your music? In other words, how would you describe your sound?
We have heard of many people, that our music is hard to compare or to put in a genre-box. Maybe because we’re experiencing with rhythms, melodies, sound, languages and because we’re able to change and start from the beginning. We love to mix organic and electronic sounds in a way that feels natural.
Please name your 3 desert islands albums, movies & books…
Albums: Led Zeppelin IV, Portishead: Dummy, Yann Tiersen: La Valse des Monstres
Books: Haruki Murakami: 1Q84, Gabriel García Márquez: Cien años de soledad, A survival-book about finding food and DYS-stuff in the nature.
Movies: Requiem for a dream, All Seasons of Rck and Morty (if that’s possible), Titanic (punishment for the one that has eaten up all the food-stocks)
Do you prefer studio or performing live and why?
We like both.
Is there any funny-unique story you would like to share with us, always in relation to your music ‘career’?
One week before our first tour we realized the “new” car from Rubén was totally knocked out. After a lot of wasted time we decided to buy another one, which actually was also dying. In the last second we didn´t buy it and had to rent a car the morning before we left to Munich. There we had one of the greatest concerts yet.
Which track of your own would you point out as the most unique and why?
Right now we´re very in love with the two songs we recorded a few days ago. They´re meaningful songs with a lot of heart and work inside. We experimented a lot with both. They represent the evolution of our music and they´re fun to play.
Would you like to share with our readers your future plans?
This month we release a new single with “Mañanas” and “Wise guy”. We recorded with Elías Gonzalez, a producer friend of ours. We present our new songs at Auster Club on the 17th of January in Berlin. (Tickets to the concert: https://austerclub.app.love-your-artist.com/de/tickets/23153) We also plan a few live video recording sessions and to launch more singles. At the end of the year we would love to present our debut album.
Free question!!! (Ask yourself a question) you wish to answer and haven’t been given the opportunity…
