Interview with the Norwegian winner Amoli from Oslo

We met the Norwegian winner at the legendary club Rockefeller in Oslo before heading to the Taubertal Festival



You have participated in the Emergenza Festival Edition 2016/2017. What made you decide to take part in it?
I had a moment not long ago where I kind of gave up and completely stopped writing music. I felt like I wasn´t getting any attention. Like nobody cared. One day, I saw an add for Emergenza, and it was like something in the back of my mind was saying: This is it! This is my chance to get out there and show people my music.

As you approach the world final, what is your state of mind?
First of all, this is crazy! We are so excited to play at the Taubertal Festival! I am of course a bit nervous, because I want to win so badly. But like I always tell the band before we hit the stage: give it your all, have fun and enjoy this moment!

What is your best memory from your Emergenza experience?
I remember standing on stage when they were going to announce the final winner in Norway. Most people in the audience were chanting the other bands names. I thought this was the end of the road for me. And then suddenly I hear the host yell out AMOLI! My face was like WTF. In my mind I was like YEEEEAAAAHH!

What's behind your band's name? Any specific meaning?
Amoli is my last name.

If you had to choose a famous song that represents your band...which one would it be?
Queen - We Will Rock You

Can you tell us a funny story or anecdote about your experience on stage? And one which happened in backstage or during the preparation of a show ?
I remember this one time when I was performing on stage, a girl in the crowd was so excited that she actually bit off a piece of my skin from my hand. True story.

How would you describe your music ?
Experimental mind blowing pop. 

Before you go on stage, do you have a ritual or a good luck charm that goes everywhere with you?
I have a special cross that I carry with me all the time. And I cross my fingers.

What is your dream gig?
The Coachella Festival!

What can audiences expect from one of your live performances?
I will make sure that you will have a good time!

If you could invite a band or an artist at your party, dead or alive, who would it be?
The Real Slim Shady, Eminem.

What are your short to medium term plans after the international final?
Release new music and go on tour.
