We Are The…WHAT? Die Band We Are The Way For The Cosmos To Know Itself lässt nicht nur mit ihrem aufregenden Namen aufhorchen – das dänische Trio überzeugt mit futuristischem Electro-Pop mit Neon-Touch, der glitzert und trotz viel Zucker Tiefgang ermöglicht. Im Interview stellen sich WATWFTCTKI vor ihrer Deutschland-Tour selbst vor.
Mads, Julie and Martin // We Are The Way For The Cosmos To Know Itself.
Cosmic synth pop
What everybody needs to know about you:
We are in love with licorice! The taste, the smell, the color, the way it shines (especially those soft, greasy danish ones). You can be absolutely sure that we always keep a bag with the tasty beauties in our tour- car. Another thing every German need to know is that we are touring Germany in a couple of days with shows in Berlin, Karlsruhe, Hamburg and Leipzig.
Your current release:
The single ‘Flashbacks’. It came out April 6th, 2018.
Your finest song:
This is a tough one. We dont have kids, but we imagine this question is like choosing a favorite child – it is impossible! However, at the moment we are quite happy with the songs that are going to be on our next EP which is being released in November this year. We just finished up these songs so perhaps you can compare this to having a bunch of newborns – it is ok to be a little more in love with these ones for a little while, right?
Your first favorite band:
Our parents were all The Beatles fanatics when we were kids, so guess we had no other choice than having them as our first favorites.
We have a thing for Justin Timberlake. The productions and the melodies are so cheeky and his falsetto makes us wanting to be the mothers of his kids, haha. Sometimes when we record vocals we turn up My Love or Cry Me a River and dance around in the studio singing along before hitting record to get in the right mood.
The song of your life:
The theme song of the movie Annihilation (Moderat – The Mark).
Your best lyric-line:
Recently we got a lot of good feedback from listeners who love the line: “Nobody moves the way you moved me” from the song ‘Flashbacks’.
What you would do in life without music:
I guess we would build a great sawmill and work there all three just because the smell of freshly cut wood is fantastic.
What would you take with you to a desert island:
The bass synthesizer TB-303, licorice and a couple of good sci-fi movies like ‘Bladerunner’ or ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’.
Your favorite place:
We make music at an old farm on the countryside of Denmark at the moment. This is a nice place to be creative because there is plenty of space and the surroundings are beautiful with fields, forests and Roskilde Fjord where Julie goes swimming all year.
Your life motto:
When we are rehearsing for a show we are fund of Murpheys law that says: „Anything that can go wrong will go wrong”.
Your wish for the future:
We would love to be able to keep making music and develop our sound.
What you always wanted to say:
Eat more licorice and watch more sci-fi movies 😉
that new music blog:
Wenn so tatsächlich die Zukunft klingt, dann ist alles wunderbar in Ordnung. Zuckersüße Glitzer-Synthies treffen auf stählerne Bässe und Drums. We Are The Way For The Cosmos To Know Itself sind ein Vergnügen, zu dem man unbedingt wieder das Blitzlicht auskramen und schnell Neonleuchten besorgen muss.
