What keeps you both motivated after all this time? Tell us about the highs and the lows…
At the beginning of the collaboration, the direction was not defined except for our mutual love for the music. Once we began the creative process, things just happened naturally. It’s also a human adventure, the long white nights we spend in the studio, as the creative process takes shape.
On another note, labels interested in our work keep it motivated.
