Say hello to zoë ran­dell from lu­luc

Frankie - - FRANK BITS -

How did you guys first cross paths? In Ed­in­burgh, Scot­land. We were both trav­el­ling over­seas for the first time – Steve with a back­pack and his gui­tar, me with only a back­pack. Friends linked us up be­cause I was com­plain­ing that I’d left my gui­tar at home. Where’d the name Lu­luc come from? It’s a French nick­name. There’s no mean­ing we’ve been able to find, but we love the sound of it. Kind of lilt­ing with a slightly hard edge. When it’s said right, any­way! (It’s ‘Lou-luke’.) Best thing about be­ing in a duo? We’re very like­minded in our vi­sion. And we have dif­fer­ent skills, but to­gether they cover the whole of what we need: writ­ing, record­ing, pro­duc­ing, mix­ing, per­form­ing, var­i­ous in­stru­ments, and so on. We’re able to cre­ate records al­most en­tirely by our­selves – that gives us the room to do it our way. Favourite spot to chill in Brook­lyn? Prospect Park. There are huge lakes, trees, swans, flow­ers, and so many peo­ple from all dif­fer­ent walks of life. Oh, and our stu­dio, a con­verted garage. It’s heav­ily sound-proofed and so beau­ti­fully quiet, with all our in­stru­ments and lovely win­dows. Like our own Tardis. We can seal the door and be in our own world. What do you miss the most about liv­ing in Aus­tralia? Space. Trees. Sun. Lack of trash on the streets! And the ease of liv­ing, com­par­a­tively. New York is in­tense, and things take much longer to get done, be­cause it’s so busy ev­ery­where all the time.
