Q&A with…




Q&A with Slye

Sometimes one song is all it takes to make a lasting impression and spur curiosity and deeper interest! “The Mirror” by songwriter, guitarist, and singer Slye is such a magical song. Yet all of Slye’s R&B and funk-inspired, soulful music offers this magnetic pull and stunning beauty, and that’s why[…]

Dance Loud

Q&A With Dance Loud

Dance Loud is the Chicago-based duo of producer and DJ Kristin Sanchez and guitarist, drummer and vocalist Desereé Fawn Zimmerman. They have just released their debut album “The Moment,” an intriguing fusion of dance-floor-ready beats and accessible, catchy pop music. Kristin and Deserée play all instruments and record and produce all music themselves. They were so kind to answer a few questions that give us a glimpse into where they come from and how their creative process works.

Sophie Colette

Q&A with Sophie Colette

Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Sophie Colette has released a series of singles over the last few years that are hard to get out of your mind once you heard them. Catchy hooks and quirky angles on a variety of relationship-centered topics will make you sing along in no time. Her songs also[…]

Q&A with The Cheap Thrills

To the day one month ago, The Cheap Thrills from Liverpool have released their exuberant video “Party” and my reaction to it was a mixture of sadness and joy! While Lewis Pike (vocals, guitar), Anton Eager (drums), Terry Eaves (lead guitar) and Callum Fitzpatrick (bass) have been visiting New York[…]


Q&A with Mïrändä

It is more than three years ago that we heard about Mïrändä for the first time and could not stop listening to her debut EP “Empire”. We were blown away, to say the least by the New York-based singer, songwriter, and producer and were excited to see her live at (almost) three of our showcases.

With three new songs and two videos released, we thought of this being a great opportunity to ask Miranda Johnson, who makes music as Mïrändä a few questions. Be sure to check out her latest video – entirely filmed by the artist herself – before you read on!


Q&A with talker

talker is the stage name of Celeste Tauchar, who has grabbed us with her energetic pop music full of catharsis since her debut single “Collateral Damage” in summer 2018. On March 6, she released her second EP “Wax” – the same day the cancellations around the SXSW festival in Austin began, where she was scheduled to appear. At glamglare, we were looking forward to finally see a talker show live, but instead, we do the next best thing: a Q&A to learn more about Celeste and her music.


Q&A with Detalji

One of the changes that the outgoing decade brought to music is the rise of singer/producers who do everything themselves, from writing, recording to performing live. Among these artists is Krista Myllyviita aka Detalji from Helsinki, Finnland, who creates dark synth pop with roots in electronic dance music. We fell[…]

Q&A with W. H. Lung (#airwaves19)

You might have come across W. H. Lung on glamglare (or elsewhere) before, because we truly dig the Manchester three-piece,  whose sound is a mix of krautrock, post-punk and synthpop. Much to our delight, they are scheduled to perform at this year’s Iceland Airwaves and hence we reached out to[…]

Q&A with Penelope Isles (#airwaves19)

Even before we saw Brighton-based quartet Penelope Isles live for the first time during this year’s The New Colossus Festival in New York, we were already fans of their beautifully crafted indie rock. Founded by singer/songwriter siblings Lily and Jack Wolter, the band consists further of Becky Redford (bass) and[…]

Q&A with Laveda

Laveda is based in Albany, New York and has only released two singles so far, but this duo is definitely up to something. Ali Genevich and Jake Brooks take classic shoegaze as a cue and craft energetic, fresh indie rock tracks. Listen to “Dream. Sleep.” and “Better Now”. Read on[…]
