SUPERPARKA QuickFire Questions

Parisian duo SuperParka (Paco and Simon) present their intriguing RnB hued A-side single You / Kawabunga!, via Kitsuné Musique.

What was the first album you bought?

Paco: I think the first Gorillaz album. I remember seeing the commercial for it on TV at a friend’s house and being totally mesmerized.

Simon: So ashamed right now…I think the first time I bought a cd it was an Evanescence single or something like that. I usually always lie to this question and say something cooler like N.E.R.D or Tatu. 

What was the first album you bought?

To name a few? LA Priest,Yukimi Nagano from Little Dragon (every word that comes out of her mouth is a hook), Toro y Moi, Moby, Steve Miller (always keeping it simple), XXXTentacion, Joji more recently.

What are some non-musical inspirations that motivate your music?

Something that has deeply inspired us for the last months has been replaying Final Fantasy X. The saturated visuals, futuristic elements, corky dialogues tainted with blue blue melancholy create a feeling that we dream to capture. Food also. We often stated that our music should feel like the first taste of raw salmon at a good sushi place. Unfortunately we’ve both become vegetarians since the first mixtape Sushi Boubou #1… maybe the next one should be called “Tofu boubou something”!!!

Tell us about your new single for You?

You is one of the smoothest tracks we’ve made over the last months. it talks about the difficulty of being in love in the modern world. We really wanted to come back with a love song. 

What can we expect from you in 2020?

Too many stuff, brace yourselves.
