Fast Five: The White Album



When did you begin making music, and did you ever ponder a different career?

We’ve been making music for as long as we can remember, but we started out as a band two years ago. We’ve sometimes pondered different careers, as it’s so tough making it in the world of music these days. Still, not playing has never been a realistic option.

How would you describe your music?

It’s good.

What have you been up to so far and what can we expect the following months?

We’ve been touring a bunch of times in the UK and have been focusing primarily on building a name here. The hype we’ve been getting is starting to spawn some attention at home in Denmark as well and we have some important shows coming up there.

The end of September will, among other pretty exciting stuff, see the release of our mini album Conquistador, which is a nice little piece of work with 6 songs on it. Look out for updates on Facebook, as we’ll be posting some other interesting news, which are not official as of yet.

If you could duet with anyone, who would it be?

We would love to do something with the likes of Gemma Hayes, J. Tillman or maybe Dixie Chicks. All great heroes of ours.

What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one album?

We have to split this one up.

Jakob: A very shiny one, so that I can make a fire or signal to a boat or an airplane – seriously… or maybe Abbey Road by The Beatles.

Claus: That’s a very difficult question. We’re actually into all sorts of music and it’s very hard to choose one record that can suit every need. I guess one option would be Year In The Kingdom by J. Tillman. It’s just an amazing record that I can listen to over and over again without getting tired of it.

Frederik: Jakob and Claus already mentioned two major personal favorites of mine, but no matter what, I would probably go for the melancholic masterpiece The Hollow of Morning by Gemma Hayes. For the past 5 years, that’s the record I’ve been spinning the most.
