Vök: If you had to choose, would you rather keep your voice or your fingers?
Axel: Keep my voice, it matters the most to me to be able to sing.
Vök: Will you be there in the summer?
I will definitely be there, somewhere. If there’s any need for me, I’ll be there.
Where is “there”?
is where you’d want to be,
at least for the once you care about,
is a place you’ll be wanted and appreciated in some occasion.
Vök: Have you ever straightened your hair? If not could you do it for us? (We think it would be fab)
Axel: I have never, all though my hair gets straight after I wear a hat for a bit, and It isn’t pretty.
Vök: If you were a girl for a day, what would you do?
Axel: I would write and record as much as I could, because I can’t imagine how much inspiration I would get if I would wake up with a female voice, then I would make a duet album with my self and release the album with the title “the duet with my self as a girl for a day”
Vök: Big spoon or small spoon?
Vök: Cats or dogs? Why?
Axel: hmm, a hard one….
I guess cats because they are better dancers.
Vök: Blue pen or black pen?
Axel: Black pen!
Blue pens can go suck a curtain.
Vök: How did it feel to hear your song “Forrest Fires” on the radio for the first time?
Axel: It felt nice!!
Vök: Have you gotten a lot of “poontang” since you started playing regularly?
Axel: hah!, not so much. no.
Vök: If you were a character from a movie, which hobbit would you be?
Axel: You know, I’d probably be Sam.
