Eccentricity and Melancholy: Interview with Florence + The Machine

Two hours before the interview, a call comes in: you cannot drive up early, but is it best right now? Arriving at the Boutique Hotel, located right in the center of the Covent Garden district of London, which we got in a terrible hurry, we are told: Florence suddenly decided that she would have lunch after our conversation, so we decided to postpone the meeting. Oh yes.

The meeting takes place in an old-fashioned furnished room. Florence seemed to have become taller since our last meeting four years ago. At least it became thinner. And pale. But despite all this, she is full of health and, importantly, is in a good mood.

Back in our last meeting, I wanted to ask if the writer Denton Welch is your relative? Continue reading

Absolutely None: An Interview with Soak

She was named the new greatest UK songwriter: critics describe Soak as a tomboy girl from Northern Ireland with a skateboard, guitar behind her and touching songs in the arsenal.

But what is beyond the hype? A lot of things, says journalist Ayda Bagkherneyad.

Nobody goes around the bush, talking about her age.

And the fact that adulthood and maturity is overrated, because some people Continue reading

Scam News: Interview with Tame Impala

Kevin Parker got sick. Enough peace-loving hippie music! The sound is louder! This is what he says about Tame Impala’s new album “Currents”, released in July 2015.

In an interview with Yulia Maner, the frontman talks about his hangover, why he likes to fool fans and why he doesn’t care if his music is bought or not.

Fun fact: Kevin Parker, the spiritual father and frontman of the Australian band Tame Impala, best falls asleep to the sound of a knock on the keyboard. If he was sitting next to me now, then the guy would most likely have already chopped off. But alas, he is not nearby, but in a country of unlimited possibilities, somewhere between Minneapolis and New York. These 5 weeks in the USA are just the first Continue reading
