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.

In the world of us a constant buoyant mood and a sense of optimism meets innovative electronic beats. The message of Belau is a simple one: leave the busyness and monotony of everyday life behind, get rid of our barriers, and experience every moment to its fullest. Belau takes their listeners to cheerful places, filled with sunshine, where one can relax, unwind and find peace and harmony. The music starts you on an inner journey which is a gift in our world of increasing isolation.

Provide us with some info about your latest release…

Through the song we were trying to capture individual milestones of existence – isolation to freedom, solitude to interaction. Reaching out for the ‘Essence’ is something that worth fighting for.

Which ones would you consider your main influences both music-wise & non-music-wise?

Musical influences about 90s trip-hop and today’s electronica, non-music-wise is travel.

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 try to mix electronic music with live music and deep subbasses with organic exotic instruments like marimba and stuff.

Please name your 3 desert islands albums, movies & books…

Bonobo – Black Sand, Odesza – A Moment Apart, Ibeyi – Ashes.


Do you prefer studio or performing live and why?

Both, when we’re in the studio we would like to perform live and same in reverse.

Is there any funny-unique story you would like to share with us, always in relation to your music ‘career’?

We always listening trash music/videos in the tour bus. 🙂

Which track of your own would you point out as the most unique and why?

Good question, maybe the new one because it’s the new one, called Essence. 🙂

Would you like to share with our readers your future plans?

Currently we’re working on our second album, but until the release we will have some singles, summer we touring across Europe.

Free question!!! (Ask yourself a question) you wish to answer and haven’t been given the opportunity…
