Swedish two piece duo RABBII – Felix and Johanna – present their new single ‘Majestic’, which is out now via Hidden Mothers, and share their thoughts on being together, and making this world better…”As the world turns darker now is the time to see the beauty of round pegs in square holes.”
So, what’s up, guys? What’s on your mind…?
Right now we’re just focused on finishing the EP – so we have almost no time to think about everything else, except the obvious – that the world is getting harder and something needs to be done. We cannot just sit and wait for bitter, white men with power destroy our world. We all have a responsibility. So the answer would be music and politics.. haha.
Tell us everything we should know about ’Majestic’…
Majestic is a song about the misfits. As the world turns darker and you feel like you are about to give up, that’s the time when you have to be strong. Maybe it feels like you don’t have the power right now, that you are weak. BUT I believe that together, we will make this world better – and take back the power. You are never alone.You used music to “escape from a dysfunctional family life”…What about a dysfunctional world?
The world is dysfunctional in many ways and are definitely a reason, if not the only reason my family life was a bit fucked. But what right do I have today to escape this world? When I was a child – I had to, to survive. But today Im older and I have more power than the 10 year old me. I’m not escaping today, Im trying.
Which animal would best suit your personality?
Probably a mix of a great white shark and a squirrel.
What kind of music are you listening these days?
A lot of witchhouse – love the soundscape!Do you ever get nervous before going on stage?
Always. I always get really quiet and slow in my mind. So I want to be alone before a gig to focus. And when Im on stage it all just disappears and my adrenalin takes over – the drug of my life. After a gig Im a hysterical little monster, high on life.. sort of.
The best thing about being an artist is…?
The fans, the support – that people like what I do and support me. Thats a feeling I just can’t explain. The feeling that there is people that I can connect with trough our music. That’s a special thing and a special connection thats worth all the blood sweat and tears while trying to create stuff and being apart of an industry that kills people.
Which artists are you listening to right now?
Right now I’m listen to a lot of Purity Ring, Banks and The knife!
Are there any good films that you have seen recently?
The Lobster! Love dystopian movies with a tint of humor! It’s about single people who are obliged to find a partner in a wierd hotel, they have like a month to fix it and if they don’t they will transform to an animal! It’s AWESOME!
Do you guys follow any TV shows?
Omg, we follow every TV-show! 🙂 But my fav three right now most be, Game of Thrones, Black mirror and The OA! I have no big preferences, I love a lot of stuff and love to watch tv-shows!
