Your Pop Alternative Source
In late December, we caught up with Adam and Markus for a chat over at TeaNY in NYC. Over a cup of tea, we talked about their genesis, the songwriting process, and some of the differences between the US and Scandinavia.
Tell me about music listeners in Sweden. Do you feel that they’re more into domestic music or artists from the US and UK?
M: It’s a small country so you have to look abroad. You have to be interested in the rest of the world. Music in the Swedish language is easier to break through in Sweden because there is this language filter. It’s a good crowd in Sweden, they’re interested.
A: We have good festivals. A lot of American bands and bands from the UK will play because they know Swedes are really into it. Smaller bands like War on Drugs – I mean just amazing shows.
Do you guys still live in Sweden?
A: Yes. Actually in a month from now we’re going to be neighbors [laughs].
M: The Serenades mansion! [laughs].
