Tell us about:
Your first single and how you felt when it was released:
The song was called “2062”. We recorded it in a studio used by a band we admire called Petrolz. The music video was made with a director who had won an award at the Berlin International Film Festival, and we shot a scene where we had to run through Chinatown at 2am. It’s a good memory.
Your favourite song that you have created that is an album track:
“Waterfall,” I think. This song is on the EP “So What”. It’s not a single, and it’s not very well known, but I personally really like it.
Your favourite song to play live:
I think the song is called “Yoru”. It’s the song we play at the opening of our shows, and I find it calms me down when we play it first. It’s a good warm-up for the gig, because the song gets more and more exciting. I can feel the audience getting excited along with me.
Your most emotional track:
“A rainy Friday in June”. I haven’t released this one yet, but we often play it at the end of our gigs.
The best lyric you have ever written:
“Dissilient”. Do you know the Japanese phrase “flower, bird, wind and moon?” It’s a motif that I use in turn in the lyrics. And I think this is the first song I’ve been able to write about love that’s a little bigger than a man and a woman.
Describe the feeling you get when you walk on stage to do a show:
I’m gonna fight ’em off. A seven nation army couldn’t hold me back.
The hardest track to play live:
Hmmm… there’s a convenient synchronization system these days. Oops, now that’s a secret!
Essential items you always take on tour with you?
Whey Protein Isolates.
Describe your fans in three words:
A song by another artist or band you wish you had written:
“Deacon blues” (Donald Fagen)
What we can look forward to from your band this year:
In 2022, new singles will come out in January and March. It’s on a label in the UK. After that, we have more exciting plans.
