You came to Milan for the first time this year. How was it? What kind of expectations did you have for your first show here?
Milan was great experience, we loved the show, the audience was on fire! We really had no expectations at all but glad that all went well and that our Italians fans supported us. Let’s see what Rome has to give now ! (The Blaze will play in Rome
The European tour is called Dancehall. A name that sounds promising. Can you tell us more?
The tour is called Dancehall because of our first record. But the idea behind this name is basically that it represents a place where everyone gathers, dances and spends a good time. If we happen to create this space / energy in such a space then we’re happy.
Someone mentioned you as ‘the duo behind your favourite music videos’. Pretty awesome to get this mention, what’s the strenght of your duo
Guess one of our strengths is that we are complementary in our work. We work both video and music simultaneously. The fact that we are cousins, also helps!
How’s Paris music situation at the moment? Does the general country situation affect music?
We don’t really have a point of view on this matter. I don’t know if the situation is actually affecting music in general in France. But what we can say is that there are interesting projects.
In which summer festivals are you going to play?
Playing a bunch of festivals this summer, Rock In Roma, Rock Werchter in Belgium, Way Out West in Sweden, Sziget in Hungary, Marsatac in France, touring across Europe, its always good news!
