If you're the kind of guy spending your time digging the internet for indie pop music, you might have heard of a certain Boy Pablo. After blowing YouTube counters last year, the young Norwegian bedroom pop act led by Pablo Muñoz, released its first EP Roy Pablo to critical acclaim.
Giving a nod and their best regards to Mac DeMarco's his first album 2, they then made the next step: touring. Hitting up Europe with a number of sold out shows, we were lucky enough to speak to them when headlining L'Ere de Rien Festival in the Nantes suburbs. The young slackers delivered...
Most important question first. Who's your favorite Pablo?
I would say Pablo Escobar but that guy was terrible. So, I'll say my father Juan Pablo who's actually releasing his first song - you'll be able to find on Spotify.
When we listen to your songs, the question begs: is Mac DeMarco your spiritual father? // I started playing music when I was a kid so way before Mac Demarco. But well, as soon as I discovered him, I got into his vibe, I dug his music, and it influenced me in a way. But if I had to give you a band that have had a huge influence on me it would be The Beatles.
It's your first tour. How has it been? // You know, that's such an opportunity to be doing this at our age. The best memory probably is when we toured in London at Queen of Hoxton as we got to play two gigs in a row in front of a sold out audience. Truly amazing.
Ok, last questions: what song do you listen to...
When you're in the van ? Nickelback - Savin Me for sure.
When it rains? George Michael -Careless Whisper and also some Norwegian trap music.
When going to the beach? Beach boys - Good vibration.
