HOT TAKES: Getting to know Normandie

Welcome to the feature; Hot Takes! We chat to a band or artist that we have unearthed as some what of a hidden gem and allow them the chance to introduce themselves to you, the reader.

1 – Who is in your band?

Me (Philip), Anton & Håkan

2 – What is your take on your own sound?

Hmm, if Billie Eilish had a baby with Marilyn Manson, Muse and Royal Blood – it’d be Normandie!

3 – If someone was listening to your music for the first time, what song would you tell them to listen to and why?

Our new track Jericho, because it’s the first personal and honest song we’ve released – and it also reflects where we are right now and what’s about to come.

4 – What is the plan for 2020?

Can’t tell you much, but whatever we’ve done before is about to be blown out of the water!
To finally be writing about my own messed up past, and to have the whole writing/production/mixing coming from ourselves – it just makes it the most Normandie era ever!

5 – What is the one song you wish you wrote?

Deaf HavanaNicotine & Alcohol Saved My Life. What a banger, and what a foundation for my young emo self!

6 – What three bands inspired or continue to inspire you the most?

5 Seconds Of Summer (talk about going from boyband to rockstars!), Toto taught me the need to go deeper into melodies in every instrument, Metallica just made me appreciate angry imperfect music (imperfect drumming haha).

7 – Where can our readers see you live or listen to your music?

We’re going back on tour in March 2021 with Captives and Thousand Below! Pretty unreal to say it, after cancelling 2 tours and a pretty busy festival run…

8 – If your band was an animal, what would it be and why?

Right now, a snake for sure! Slytherin was always my top pick in Harry Potter.
