Mit einem Interview starten wir für Euch in dieses Wochenende. Dazu haben wir kurz mit dem Dänen Wangel über seinen Hype, seine Stimme und Social Media gesprochen.

Wir haben ihn auf dem Spot Festival leider nicht sehen können. Warum? Ganz einfach weil die Show komplett überfüllt war. Keine Chance. Aber das war ein Zeichen dafür, dass der Däne gerade durchstartet in seiner Heimat. Das liegt wohl auch an der Tiefe seiner Vocals. Darüber haben wir mit ihm in einem kurzen Interview gesprochen. Vielleicht hört ihr von ihm hier an dieser Stelle schon bald mehr.

Soundkartell: What do you think about Hypes in musicbusiness?

Wangel: „I think it can be good and bad. It’s good if you can live up to it.“

Soundkartell: You`ve already released one EP. No album yet. Do you think it`s getting more popular to convince and impress your listeners in a very short and packed time like you can do it on a EP?

Wangel: „Yes, I think it can be easier to “eat” an EP instead for an album and it’s a good way to show who you are without showing too much.'“

Soundkartell: The Social Media thing isn`t it sometimes very annoying?

Wangel: „Sometimes it’s annoying because you have to deal with all the time.“

Soundkartell: Which benefits does Social Media generate for your project “Wangel”?

Wangel: „It generates attention all over the world and it’s funny to find out that a blog in NYC are writing about me just because I uploaded a song on Soundcloud. It means a lot!“

Soundkartell: You played Spot Festival this year. In which way do you think this gig gave you a special pushing?

Wangel: „It’s hard to say so early. It was a great gig. Seeds were spread, but I don’t know what will come out of it.“

Soundkartell: We really like your deep and warm vocals. In which way do you think this is the one outstanding element in your music?

Wangel: „Thank you! I think my voice is a big element, but it’s nothing without the instrumental work of my producer Kasper Ejleskov.“

Soundkartell: In a kind of a special way we like stereotypes. And we have some stereotypes about danish musicians. Trendy outfit and a very modern and a indicatory sound. Do you think you match with some stereotypes?

Wangel: „I don’t think that much about it. I try to be myself.“ 🙂

Soundkartell: For me a musician seems to be very privileged because they already know what they want to do jobwise. Unlike me in doing several internships (without earning some money). In which way you are aware of this privilege?

Wangel: „It’s good for me to know what I want. I want to create music, but there is no money in it, yet.“

Soundkartell: At Spot Festival we noticed that many bands from Scandinavia wants to get big on German Musicmarket. Is this also a big goal for you?

Wangel: „Yeah, it’s a great musicmarket. I love Germany and I love to speak the language. I would love to come and play a concert!“

Soundkartell: What are your plans for the rest of the year?

Wangel: „The plan is to play a great Roskilde Festival and then after the summer we will begin recording the next “thing”“ 🙂
