Interviewer:Over the last years 8 years or so when you are watching tv or possibly listening to the radio, or Pandora, or you're checking out music videos, youtube... was there anything that jumped out that was just wow, this person is doing something that is forward thinking musically? Was there any band or artist that really jumped out for you?
Thomas:We really are big fans of The Strokes and Phoenix - that really define somehow the turn of the century rock and music. But the biggest impact that we felt really from a band over the last 6, 7, 8 years was probably for me, MGMT. As a band we are really big fans of their music and their approach. They made 2 great albums, and they are about to do a third one. We really feel touched by their music and their project.
