Q – I recently read a review in a French music magazine (Trax) about the first album of a band called ‘As we fall’. It says that ‘its powerful minimal electronic pop reminds of the Velvet Underground as well as Lloyd Cole, Kas Product or even Jean-Louis Murat’ (my translation), even though I personally think it rather sounds like New Order or the Beloved. Anyway, how do you feel being quoted as a reference beside the VU, moreover in an electronic music newspaper ? Are you curious of listening to artists on which you seem to have had an influence ?
A – Always happy to be referenced after years of being compared to others.. Am I curious? Sometimes.
