The fifth annual Zandari Festa is taking place in Hongdae from September 30 –
October 3. To spotlight some of the event’s performers, Korea Gig Guide and our friends at Do Indie are teaming up to ask a bunch of acts five simple questions.
For this installment, we’re speaking with Glenn Müller, vocalist and guitarist for infectious alt-pop band The New Investors from Copenhagen, Denmark. Now let’s get to his answers!
1) Why are you excited to be performing at Zandari Festa 2016?
We’re excited to play our first gigs outside of Europe. We have heard a lot about the music culture in Asia and especially in Korea so we’re very excited to experience it with our own eyes and ears. One of our friends has been to Zandari Festa twice and told us it’s completely insane in a really fun way. He also told us how friendly people are and how enthusiastic everyone is about good music.
2) What can people expect from a New Investors live show?
People can expect a happy surf party where they will experience a band full of summery, beachy energy and sparkling with joy. We really hope people will be ready to party and dance with us.
3) For fest-goers not familiar with The New Investors yet, what should they know about you?
They should definitely check out our music online in advance so they can sing along to our songs as they are quite catchy. If they don’t have the time for that they should be aware that we’re from Copenhagen, but our music sounds like it comes from a much warmer climate.
4) Aside from performing, what else would you like to do during Zandari Festa 2016?
We’re looking forward to meeting and partying with a lot of nice and cool people and music lovers and to experiencing the Korean music scene. We definitely want to check out what the Korean scene is all about to get new inspiration. And we’re all very excited to try some delicious Korean food.
5) If you can go drinking with another Zandari Festa act, who do you want it to be?
Brilliant question! We haven’t really had the chance to check out any of the other acts so far. So any recommendations are much appreciated, we love surprises. Even though most of us are not that much into reggae NST & The Soul Sauce looks like a bunch of fun guys that you definitely want to hang out with. The Barberettes look promising, and Buiret seem like they really have something seriously good going on.
