Sundown Festival 2013 Quip: Nidji and Rocksteddy

by

Sundown Festival is coming back to Singapore on November 16, 2013 for its fifth edition! Gathering ten established and up-and-coming headlining acts from eight Asian countries – Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Indonesia, Philippines and Thailand – Sundown will present a contemporary glimpse at Asian music, food and culture. To warm up for the festival, we’ve asked a short set of fun questions to the performing bands. Super popular Indonesian pop act Nidji and Teddy from Filipino alternative rock group Rocksteddy are in the starting blocks!

Question 1

Nidji

We feel so glad and honored to be participating in Sundown Festival. By sharing the stage with great musicians and performers from many big countries in Asia, we will be able to learn and share our knowledge to become better musicians.

Rocksteddy

It’s an honour and we’re excited at the same time to be a part of this festival. Proud also to be representing our country Philippines, to play in front of a diverse audience and meet & play also alongside with other inspiring artist all across Asia.

Question 3-

Nidji

We usually offer everybody to hear all our songs, because every bit of them is representing us.

 

RocksteddyOur song “Love Is Your Bullet”. Since it’s written in English for everyone to understand, I think everyone can relate to its fast-phase beat and spunky approach. 

Question 4

NidjiMineral Water. Because when people hear our music – one of our songs or a few of them, it’s often becoming the soundtrack of their life.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

Rocksteddy

I think we would be dark rum, soda with lime and a dash of energy drink to spice and balance things up and give it a little kick. 

Question 5

Nidji

– Oasis: “Don’t Look Back In Anger”
– Coldplay: “Atlas”
– The Killers: “Human”

Rocksteddy

Honestly, [from Sundown’s line-up] none yet. I’d like to be surprised and be wowed when I finally watch and listen all the artist perform. Like a kid on a surprise party, eyes wide open and ready to accept anything.
