10 questions with Lobsterbomb

How did you get into creating music?

C: I’ve been playing the guitar and writing songs since I was a teenager without it ever amounting to anything. Started taking it more seriously about 5 years ago, releasing some DIY solo albums and doing musical theatre before finally meeting Nico and Vik and achieving the dream of being in a band with LOBSTERBOMB!

N: Started playing music when I was 4. Later when I was about 12 I joined the school’s choir. Some awkward photos of this time still exist out there. In my 20s I had some attempts to play in bands but always went back to playing solo, just writing and experimenting.

Where do you get your inspirations from?

C: Ancient pop songs and snippets of conversation.

N: Many places and things. Art, other music, nature, silence or a random melody just popping into my head.

Use three words to describe your music!

C: Energetic, direct, fun.

N: Empowering, raw, confident.

What’s your favourite song of yours and why?

C: Our latest song, ‘Wake Up’ has a really frenetic energy that’s a lot of fun to play.

N: They are all very different in their energy and message, so I have a hard time deciding.

Tell us, one artist, you are listening to right now!

Where is your favourite place you have ever performed?

C: Neues Ufer where Bowie and Iggy Pop used to hang out, just for the history in the air.

Where is the one place you dream of performing?

What are you most looking forward to in 2021?
