Intervju

Oh No Ono

Blaskan chefredaktör och ansvariga utgivare Dr. Indie intervjuar norska stoltheterna Oh No Ono i vårt oktobernummer. Mina frågor är på svenska och svaren är på engelska. Håll till godo.


Fråga
Ni har som band börjat få stora framgångar med er smarta snygga new wavepop ute i världen. Vad förväntar sig bandet av den nya skivan?
Svar
We expect great things!! We are proud of our album and we do feel that we have something new to offer. Nut just on the Danish scene but internationally speaking as well. So we are convinced that our music can reach big crowds, but hey, it isn't really that predictable a business so who nows..?!
The art of making music is what is important to us, and if people understand us, that’s great, but our primary goal is to continue to satisfy our own musical needs.
Fråga
Det finns relativt många olika stilar i musiken och den är väldigt dansant. Vad hade ni för idéer att leka med när plattan tillkom?
Svar
The project was to make music that could be an alternative to the (boring) pop-mainstream. Generally we just try not to limit ourselves with restrictions like genres, trends etc. That is the only way we can function as a band. So the album is a kind of a statement on what inspired us at that time… And that was danceable, catchy music on the one hand and experimental, border-seeking music on the other hand.
Fråga
Ni skall ut på turné. Vilket land tycker ni som band har varit roligast att uppträda på scen?
Svar
Sweden of course;)....
Each country has different mentalities and advantages that can be inspiring in their own way. It is always great fun to visit a new country and meet the locals!
Fråga
Som sista fråga. Är ni nöjda som band med mottagandet av nya skivan?
Svar
Yes, indeed! In Denmark we received quite a big crowd following our career closely, coming to our shows, buying our records etc… We have only just started releasing the album in other countries, so we can’t really know wether to be satisfied or not there…
Every time we play in a new city or country, we get the privilege of making someone in the audience a bit happier! So we really can’t ask for more … (but we do so anyway) …
