During The Asteroids Galaxy Tour’s spring tour in the US, the Danish band dropped by Shock Hound in Los Angeles and recorded a few acoustic versions of their songs. Mette Lindberg also did a quick interview for the web site, discussing the band’s “collage” of music, loving raw and soulful music, and emotions evoked in her audience.
“We are a big band,” Mette said. “We’re a collage, a collective. We share a love for music and we think it’s a beautiful way of being together with other people, sharing a unique experience. When we play live, it’s important for us that we have a good time together, as a band. We’re good friends, all of us, and that we share a special moment with the audience and make a feeling in people. It doesn’t have to be a happy feeling.”
“I have so many albums and artists and songs that did something good in my life,” Mette said. “I remember when I was younger and I had these really good friends, boys, and they were kind of girlish, and they listened to David Bowie and we’d all hang out doing artist stuff. Boys had long hair. A little bit hippie, but still a little bit long in small city because it was not cool. I remember that psychedelic touch of the glam rock.”
Talking about their new material, Mette said, “We are in the middle of recording album #2. Hopefully an EP later this year, and we’re playing festivals all of the summer. We toured a lot last year, then back in the studio, back in the creative phase, and back getting it all out. It’s kind of good to have both.”
