We chat to Danish duo GENTS about 80s vibes, 90s vibes, their bid for the presidency, and their new album About Time. Well, anyone’s gotta be better than Trump right?

Oh hi there. We’re a pop culture website. And you are…
GENTS.

We hear you make music. Tell us about your latest release?
About Time has been a refinement of the vibes we set to sail with Embrace The Future in December 2015. We’ve been exploring new sides of weltscmerz and colourful cocktails, as we finished our very first full-length album.

Inspo is awesome. Who are your ultimate music icons/inspirations?
People tend to make us much more of an 80s band than we really are. Yes, of course we’ve been listening a lot to Prefab Sprout, Tears For Fears, Fleetwood Mac and so on. But making About Time, we we were much more in love with Dido, 90s house, and new-millenium-acts like Safri Duo.

The first album I bought with my own money was….
Kylie Minouge – Fever

Are you heading on tour? Where can we see you?
We just played at Radar in Aarhus (DK) May 4, at Pumpehuset in Copenhagen (DK) May 5 and at The Lexington in London (GB) May 11. More dates yes to come.

My fondest memory as a musician is…
Remember one time stringing a guitar… Memories of musicians are dull. Memories of people are much more interesting.

On my rider, you’ll find…
Iced cremant, Ricard Pernod & cranberry juice. Always a perfect way to start out the evening.

If I was to play with one musician/band before I die, it would be…
Kylie Minogue.

What’s the buzz, tell us what’s happening next?
GENTS for president.

If one lyric could define me, it would be…
Last Christmas.

My iconic/horrific teen outfit/phase was…
Once thought it was cool to wear a key chain and different coloured shoe laces.

My friends always tell me…
Shut up.

I know all the words to…
The Bible.

Buying me a round? I’ll have…
Pastis with ice and cranberry juice.

If I was a rapper, I’d be…
Drake… he’s classy.

My lucky charm is…
A nice and mellow buzz.

The one word I can’t stop saying is…
Yes.
