Tell us about your new single ’Be Sure’?
We wanted to shoot a video in the snow, Berlin never has too much snow, but this year was different… Be sure sounds right for a snowy video… The lyrics are also roughly inspired by an Elon Musk interview. He states that it’s his goal to find a way to couple the human brain with AI, that it should be possible to “save state” very soon – so I wonder, how can we be sure what’s real and what’ a simulation once it’s possible to move the “mind” from one body to another
What have you got lined up for 2021?
We’ll be releasing another 3 more singles and our new album … since touring is a bit sketchy right now, we decided to focus on producing more videos instead, treating each like another episode of a mini-series … be sure was episode no.1 – I can’t wait to watch all of them in a row in autumn! 🙂
