Oui Plastique – Interview


Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (http://petesrocknewsandviews.com)

PD: What type of artist are you?

OP:We are a Danish (Martin) and British (James) electronica duo.

 

PD: Tell us the brief history of yourself.

OP: We have both been making music for many years, Martin most notably with Perpacity and James with DVL.

 

PD: Who are your musical influences?

OP: We both love Depeche Mode, and anything with an electronic, atmospheric vibe.

 

PD: What are your dreams and goals?

OP: We would love to have more time to make music! But I guess life sometimes gets in the way.

 

PD: Who writes your songs, what are they about?

OP: We collaborate on everything, sometimes one of us will come up with the music and the other will write the vocals, and sometimes one will create a very basic idea and the other will develop it.

 

PD: How do you promote your band and shows?

OP: We are a studio band, at least for now, so we promote ourselves online on social media and Bandcamp etc.

 

PD: What do you think about downloading music online?

OP: It’s the way of the world!

 

PD: What song do you wish you’d written and why?

OP: Personal Jesus by Depeche Mode is genius – catchy, emotive and clever. What more could you want?

 

PD: What are some of your pet peeves?

OP: Stealing other people’s musical ideas is never good.

 

PD: What is your proudest moment in music?

OP: Together, when we released our collaborative album, Convergence, under Perpacity/DVL in 2017. Find it here: https://perpacity.bandcamp.com/album/convergence-album

 

PD: So what are you working on at the moment?

OP: Our debut album, Fraternity of Strangers. We are taking our time with it as we want it to be the best it can be, but it’s coming along nicely!

 

PD: What music have you available online and where can we buy it from? 

OP: So far, we’ve released one EP of covers of Martin Gore songs – it’s available here: https://unmute-music.bandcamp.com/album/um-ep-04
