Tell us your real names, country of birth, date of birth and childhood experience.

“It’s either knowing there is yet another band of common folk who buy boxershorts online, don’t like their first name, have smelly farts when they eat too much cale and sometimes shop in the same grocery mart as you do, OR you have a mysterious bunch of weirdos suddenly appearing on the face of the earth, creating a wicked world with wicked masks, songs and videos that make your brain shrivel. We prefer the latter.”

Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills.

“Capitano is the pied piper of our generation. The golden calf that leads our prosperous, privileged bubble of baristas and social media managers off the cliff of self-perception into a deep, dark pit of a genderless kiss-and-tell-seven-minutes-in-heaven hellhole.

Plus, we play instruments.”

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.

 “The song is a breakfree hymn. It’s about leaving a hurtful und self-destructing relationship with a fist full of guilt and shame, only to jump into the nightlife and get wasted, fool around, dance too intensely and in general, feel liberated, lonely, angry and sad at the same time, while there’s a mirrorball in the background.

The video itself has a somewhat different, more artistic angle to the story of dysfunctional love. It’s like a coma, where one can’t decide if his love is dead or alive, and the other sticks around without knowing how to fix it. It is a dance around a middle that has nothing but pain for both participants. Only to kill off the relationship once and for all will bring you back to a life of emotion and empathy for the other one.”

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.

“Well, we’ve been around in several other bands, and always tried to “make it” by trying to make it right. Once we shed off that burden of trying to be “just as cool” or “just as amazing” as all the other bands out there, we found Capitano. Something that is special and peculiar, and from the start had no real place in a music business that has its own behavioral patterns. That makes it harder to be heard in the circles of the biz, but all the more interesting for all the people out there that actually yearn for new music to catch them off guard for once.

So we keep on doing what we’re doing. In the long shot, people decide what they listen to, not radio stations.”

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot.

“We all serve the single purpose of making booties shake and eyes cry, ideally at the same time. So there’s not much to tell about individual members. We are more like and ant farm. Drones that carry out the will of a fat queen ant that lives in our hearts and is all about getting freaky.

We had a lot of help from different studios and, in the end, made a lot of it ourselves since not a lot of people seem to get what we are talking about. So there’s at least three studios involved in this song, probably more.

When we wrote the idea for the music video, we looked over a lot of directors and finally stumbled upon Aviv Kosloff, who is more of a fashion & art aficionado and not too much of a music video guy. We liked his totally different approach to how he wanted to shoo this thing. His ideas for colors, makeup and outfits really spoke to us. We we’re like: “He’s getting it! He’s the one who gets it!”. So he got the job. We paid him minimum wage, though. We have our standards. Also, I think he liked the project enough to not rip us off entirely.”

Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal.

“School kept telling me that there’s no place for all the madness that is happening in my head. But I met three other people who have the same gift, and together we are creating a place for us to be the exact thing everybody wants to repress. Next step would be to quit our jobs, burn our I.D.s and live in a plane that never lands, streaming live concerts from the stratosphere to the people on earth. Sometimes we’d open a window to hear them cheer. Only if its not too windy outside.”

.

“Everything. Simply everything.”

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.

“Don’t ever listen to advice! If what you are doing is crap, you’ll know it deep inside. If it’s not: Don’t stop, keep going.”

.

.

.

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained.

 “We don’t have a career. Not yet. Future acknowledgements that we aim for: Oscars, Pulitzer, a golden ticket to Charlies Chocolate Factory. No Grammys.”

.

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.

“Fuzz and I mostly keep coming up with ideas and talking trash about the other ones ideas, until we find common ground we both can dance on.

The rest is pixie dust and other magical mysteries.”

.

Name five biggest artists that you like.

“David Bowie, Eminem, Josh Homme, Freddie Mercury, Mike Patton”

.

.

.

Name the artists you have collaborated with before in your songs or artists you are willing to collaborate with in the future if you have the chance to do so.

“We have a song with Mastodon’s Troy Sanders on vocals. He’s the nicest guy we know, so we tried to make him sing on the most malicious song we have. It’s called “Get Naked”. He wrote a verse for it that really sums up the idea of the song. There is this line like “Check your feelings at the door” that I really thought is brilliant. Listen to the song when its out and you will know!

Other than that, I am willing to work with anyone, as long as he or she gets what we are about.”
