How are you?
Jinte: I’m very good actually. We have these digital interviews all the time, which is very strange to promote a new record. Now I can wear my pajamas during an interview, so that’s fun. (laughs)
Don’t you think it’s a bit sad to release a record without being able to tour?
Jinte: It’s not the way we are used to, but we knew this was going to happen if we would release music during this pandemic.
The release of Sand is also quite quick after Fever.
Maarten: Right after our break (editor’s note: Maarten and Jinte worked a few years on their solo projects Warhaus and J. Bernardt), we started touring with Fever. That ensured a really nice vibe, which gave us the energy to create a second one. When we played the songs of Fever, we had the feeling we didn’t push some things far enough. It was the first time we used some groovy influences. By pushing that a bit further, new songs started to flow out.
