You’re currently on tour. Do you have any time to visit the city you’re performing in?
Sophie: It depends on the city. Today, we don’t have much time but the good thing is that we’re right next to the botanical garden, so we’re probably going to explore it after this. In Vienna, for example, we had one day so we had a whole day we could spend on exploring. Usually, we get in around the morning, do interviews, have sound check and do the show.
How has the tour been so far?
Sopie: It’s been really great. The thing I really love is that no matter which city, we’re always met by a kind of atmosphere in the crowd that is like open, kind, excited, colorful, playful, … When we get feedback after the show, we often hear that fans make friends during the show, meet new people and are losing their minds. For us to show up and the community or spirit already exists before we even get to the stage is the best gift in the world.
You both started as solo artists and finally bundled forces to make music. How was it to work with someone else on such a personal project?
Sophie: We were solo artists in a way, but we weren’t pursuing it that much. I was writing music for myself and we were both in this phase of figuring out how to make our own music, who we were inspired by and who we were as artists. I think, coming together we accelerated the process of learning and we were very honest to each other. Everything that I do, there’s no wasting time. It’s a really good mirror to have and it’s so helpful to grow since we’re so different from one another. We have a level of trust and unconditional love, so we can say anything and I think that makes us grow as artists and humans.
