How would you describe the band?
Meaningful. From day one we wanted to do more than just entertain.

Tell me about the name of the band:
When we started singing together 4 years ago, we were at a place in our lives where we wanted to try to do more than just entertain. We wanted to use our music to start conversations about the things in life that are not always easy. All three of us have different backgrounds and stuff we struggled with as children. So we are spending a lot of time trying to use our experiences to help other people.
You are one of the participants of DMGP 2016. How did it all begin?
We were given an opportunity and we took it :)

“Soldiers of love” is the title of your song, what’s the story behind it?
As I talked about before we are a pop group trying with a DNA that basically is "let's try to make the world a little bit better". And do it with love and music. So we tried to put that in a song.
Describe the song with 4 words:

What can we expect to see on stage for the performance?
A bang :)
What do you like about Eurovision?
It gathers people all over Europe at the same time around some as beautiful as music!

What do you dislike about Eurovision?
I can't really think of anything.
Tell me the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word:
Nightmare: Horror movie
Stage: Freedom
Woods: Natural
Fangirling: ??? :)
Censorship: Other countries
Watermelon: Summer
Friendship: My boys!
Dreams: Life
What are your plans for 2016?
Hopefully a lot of concerts with the boys. Starting summer I’m doing the Danish version of "Hunchback of Norte Dame" the musical.

Is there anything you want to say to close the interview?
Thank you for your time  <3
