How have you enjoyed being “the rock band” on a dance label?
SH: I love being the distant cousins from across the sea! It was tough at the start but once we found our own audience and people started to dig it, it didn’t seem to matter that we were the odd bastard children of DFA.
TP: Music is music. You should see the dancers at our shows.
Do you like disco?
SH: Who doesn't like disco?
TP: No. It reminds me of when i got stuck in an elevator.
Has the long wait to come play shows in the U.S. given you time to build up any ideas about how gigs in the U.S. might differ from European ones?
SH: We were gutted when our visas didn’t come through for the initial tour with LCD and thought we'd probably never get the chance to come state side. So this is a great opportunity for us and I am really excited. There are differences in audiences around Europe but people come to gigs to have a good time and listen to the music so i hope NYC is just the same. And i hope there are still people around after the show to have a few drinks! it’s great we are playing an all ages show as the 21 thing is still a bit strange for me as my sister Nancy was taking me to gigs at 12 and I loved it.
TP: We get a lot of amazing correspondence from America. So i’m really happy we are coming over because touring, playing live, is a massive part of what we do. The live shows all over Europe have been incredible. Insane. And we really wanted American audiences to experience that too. Now they can!
