Two and a Half Questions with Lulu Rouge

Lulu Rouge

How did you come up with the name Lulu Rouge?
We had a Sunday club which we had to name, and after the usual name brainstorming session, our good friend Trentemøller actually came up with the name Lulu Rouge. When the venue ended after many years of Sunday fun, it seemed very natural to keep the name for our band.

Care to share a memorable moment from one of your past tours?
Playing At Roskilde Festival’s Astoria stage in front of 6,000 people (2008)… This was a quite scary experience, because it was our second live job ever! It turned out to be fantastic 🙂

Tell us a little about the music scene in Denmark.
The music scene in Denmark is absolutely fantastic at the moment! Lots of good indie rock bands like Choir of young believers, Mikael Simpson, Veto, Ravenettes, The Crooked Spoke etc… The electronic music scene is also peaking at the moment with names like Efterklang, Trentemøller, UnderByen, Mikkel Metal, Mike Sheridan, Who Made Who, ElectroJuice, Spleen United, Fagget Fairys, Lulu Rouge 🙂

What’s next for Lulu Rouge?
We are currently working on our next album, which we hope is ready around spring 2010. We already have a bunch of demos, sketches and ideas piled up in our studio, and at this stage it seems like the next album is going to be more edgy, a little bit more uptempo, more melodic, but still with the distinct Lulu Rouge deep and dubbish sound!!! |
