1) How were your beginnings in music?
Van-Anh: both my parents are musicians (Mum, an opera singer and Dad, a classical guitarist), so I was introduced to music very very early in life. I started playing the piano at 13 months old (before I could walk and talk) and classical music was my upbringing. It wasn’t until I went to school and was exposed to other genres of music that I ended up writing and playing other styles of music, subsequently working with writers and producers of other genres.
Mark Olsen: I started playing drums in the school band when I was in primary school. I then played drums and some guitar/bass in bands with friends in my teenage years, then fell into electronic music and DJing in my 20s.
As for Double Touch, we have been writing and creating music together for 3 years now, starting off with writing in music studios and subsequently moving into live shows.
2) We really like your new videoclip Sunriser! How was filmed?
Thanks so much. We filmed this in California on a hot Summer’s day. Our friend Nick Conrad is a fabulous creative Director and videographer. We told him our ideas, he scouted the location, we all drove out with all our instruments, decks, equipment to a location near the Mojave Desert and shot it. We had a very short time frame to shoot due to trying to capture the sun’s movement but it all worked and we are super happy with the final product.
3) For us, one of the best compilation albums of the year it's Summer Sampler 2019 by All Day I Dream. Are you happy about the public & fans reception?
Thanks! Yes, we feel honored to be a part of the 2019 Summer Sampler alongside many great artists. The response has been great especially having the music video to show our live elements.
