Together with the Swedish educational institute SENSUS we have developed an exciting project. End of August we will invite three Swedish newcomer bands to Berlin to show them the fascinating music sights of Berlin, introduce them to relevant players of the music industry, take them to Pop-Kultur and let them perform a gig at Urban Spree under the title: DIE NEUEN SCHWEDEN. This showcase will be on Wednesday, the 26th of August, and is free for everyone!!! For you, to get to know them better, we have interviewed the three Swedish bands. Today we want to introduce Tiny Union to you, even more than we already have in a past post.
Today, 19th of August, Tiny Union takes over our instagram! They will show you in a few posts their personal view of Sweden.
1. Tiny Union. How did you come up with the band name?
We started the band as a collaboration between three independent singer-songwriters, and we wanted a name that was short and snappy, so Tiny Union was the best available name we could come up with! It’s pretty self-explanatory…
2. How does “the new Swedish sound” sound like? Who are the new Swedes in your opinion?
Absolutely no idea… Is there a Swedish sound? That’s kind of hard for us to see from the inside, perhaps some nice German person can explain it to us!
3. Why can’t we find you guys on Facebook?
Absolutely no idea… Do you often find yourself struggling with computers? Just kidding! We’re on Facebook since April this year, just type Tiny Union and you’ll find us!
4. What do you expect from your trip to Berlin?
We expect to have a great time, see lots of cool places and meet some friendly people. We’re looking forward to our gig at Urban Spree!
5. Tell us about your plan for 2015?
We released our debut single ’Neverland’ in June, and we plan to release two more singles this year. We have already recorded our second single and it’s called ’The Boy, the Girl and the Volcano’. When we return from Berlin we will probably play a few more gigs in Sweden and write some new songs. We’ve been talking about going to Madrid and perhaps shoot a video there for our third single…we’ll see what happens!
6. What is the weirdest thing that’s happened to you guys during a performance?
Perhaps not too weird, but Gustav smashed his guitar into something and it changed to a different tuning, and it took him nearly three minutes of noodling to figure this out. This resulted in our longest intro to date.
7. Tell us a secret about Tiny Union.
Sorry, if we told you we would have to kill you…
