READ OUR EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW FOR #THEWOMANISSUE

Who are heather and emma?
Two best friends making music.

Where is the beau name coming from?
We have always loved the word Beau.. the way it rolls off the tongue, the meaning, the pronunciation. It makes sense, it’s singular. We as an entity feel singular.

How your aesthetic runs parallel with your personal experience growing up as quintessential New Yorkers?
It’s a natural thing, our aesthetic is an outcome of who we are. It’s something we can’t help, and no matter what city we are from, it still would be representative of who we are. We are all about being comfortable but also eye catching. I guess that’s New York for you.

Something we need to know about ‘That Thing Reality’From March 2016 when your debut album will be out, are you going on tour and what’s going to make your show specials?
That Thing, Reality has been sitting patiently waiting to be shared with the world and finally it is going to happen this March. We are going on tour with Miike Snow, our good friend, and are very happy we get to travel with such profoundly inspiring musicians. We will do a gig at SXSW and then go on tour in Europe! We hope to bring a certain nostalgic visionary experience to our shows.

Your favourite city and why.
New York City, because it’s so international.

Your style: fashion & music, what’s the right mix?
The right mix between music and fashion is a quality that’s not over powering the other, but accentuating like a friend or partner in crime.
