FRAGEBOGEN: Lauv [English Version]

„Fragebogen“ is a standard interview with 15 questions around music plus a special task. This time it’s singer Lauv who answers them.


*** Hier geht es zur deutschen Version des Fragebogens ***

First cd: first one i remember, the eminem show

First concert: first one i remember was my chemical romance

First childhood memory related to music: piano lessons as a little kid when i was living in atlanta

Favourite song at the moment: ben howard „time is dancing“

A rather embarrassing song you like: well i dont find any song i like embarrassing but every time i blast it in the car with people they seem to get a little flustered haha…raffi „down by the bay“

Favourite song among your own: honestly it’s hard to favor my songs..its kinda like picking a favorite child and i don’t like thinking that way. i am very excited about the new ones i’m finishing right now though.

Favourite songlyrics: from that ben howard song above „hold it in, now lets go dancing, i do believe were only passing through“ especially the second part.

Best concert: recently, seeing cashmere cat at terminal 5 in new york. insane energy.

Worst concert: hahaaaaa this isnt really a concert but for some reason this memory comes up of going to a very random comedy club in new york city with my dad. it was in a basement. we were 2 of maybe 10 people there. some of the lowest, most self-depricating humor ive ever experienced.

Best concert among your own: thats so hard but i would say my entire first headlining tour this year. it was my first time selling out rooms like that myself. everybody knew the words, met some really beautiful people and made some really beautiful memories.

Vinyl, cd or mp3? honestly…always thought collecting vinyl would be cool but the perfectionist in me feels like how can i just start now after all the records ive already missed??? and CDs don’t make a lot of sense for me personally now since my laptop has no cd drive and my car only has a tape player haha. so i guess mp3? but i do miss being able to read liners and booklets.

Download or stream? stream!

Club concert or festival? club concert usually

Three songs that really have to be on your mixtape: honestly if i could only have a three song mixtape i might rather just put one song over and over to annoy people. cause like…only three songs over and over might be worse than just one song over and over. down by the bay?

An album you would NOT take with you to a lonely island: probably the lonely island album (they’ve made albums right? haha no offense to them but the opportunity for this answer was too perfect)
