1. How would you describe what you do for a living?
Taking our experiences and putting them into a format that’s relatable and danceable.

3. If you could invite any three people, dead or alive, for dinner, who would they be and why?
1. John Oliver would definitely crack an invite. He has an amazing way of exposing the sad realities of the world we live in in an understandable and funny way.
2. Another would be Oprah Winfrey just to express our disappointment that she went off the air before we could get on her show.
3. And lastly, Leonardo DiCaprio, because he’s Leonardo DiCaprio.
4. If you ever found yourself auditioning for a music reality TV show, what song would you sing and why?
‘Tribes x Angels’ by Muzi because it fits the baritone of our voices and is just straight up a good track.

Making Sure Everyone Else Is Doing What They’re Supposed To.
6. What would you say is the biggest misconception about you?
That we were or are a label-made package. This couldn’t be further from the truth; we take great pride in keeping full artistic control in everything we do, from videos to the actual production and mixing of our music.
7. What is your (honest) opinion of Cape Town?
It could be the greatest city in the world. It’s a flawed masterpiece.

Whether or not people would understand what it is that we’re trying to do.
9. What's the one thing you'd like to achieve before you die?
Owning a private plane would be pretty great. Going to space is also high on the priority list!
10. Which well-known South African personality would you, without a doubt, be able to beat in a street fight and why?
We could hold our own against pretty much anyone but we prefer the peaceful approach.
