The second semi final of Eesti Laul 2016 is this Saturday! Taking part in the second semi final is Púr Múdd with their song “Meet Halfway”. wiwiblogger Luis sat down for a chat, and discussed their songs, their careers before Eesti Laul and their show. Are you ready? Let’s do this!
So you guys bring a very modern song, with electronic sounds, and a bit of dubstep. How would you describe yourselfes as an act?
We always try to keep our music honest. I think the best word to describe our music would be “electronic”. As much as it says, we always try to keep it fresh.
You both had solo careers before joining forces. How did the idea of collaborating came up?
We had been playing together in different groups before. So we knew each other musically. Now was the time to unite forces.
“Meet Halfway” is the only song we’ve found on your YouTube channel, and you’re entering the song into Eesti Laul. Was this the first song you did together or did you do some other material previously?
Actually, this was our first single. We are currently working on more tracks and hopefully will release an album later this year.
Speaking of your song, how was the process behind it? Was it easy to write and compose or did it took some more time?
We got together to collaborate on this song and it took us roughly a month to get just right. It is always a challenge for many musicians to work on one track, but it actually went pretty smooth.
The lyrics are quite interesting. What’s the story behind them?
The story is actually about a boy that misses his dad. It is inspired from our own lives and we actually didn’t write is first and foremost for the Eurovision, but just to get it out from ourselves. Glad to see it got so far.
How would you describe your song in just one sentence?
It is an energetic track that contradicts itself in many different layers.
Tell us a bit more about the staging. What can we expect from your performance?
We are trying to tell a story. That is our main focus. Everything else is a surprise.
Eesti Laul is taking place this year at Saku Suurhall, where Eurovision 2002 was held. There will be a huge crowd there, does that add some extra pressure?
Not really. Sometimes intimate concerts create more tension…
What would going to Stockholm mean to you both personally and professionally?
Personally it would be a huge thing to take us forward on our journey in music. Professionally it would mean that we’d have to start organising our 10 years jubilee concert!
And finally, do you have a message for our readers at wiwibloggs.com?
The most important thing you can do is do what you are called to do and do it the best way possible!
