It’s basic yet gels with daily lifestyle.

The first one that came into my mind was The Beatles but I would go with Coldplay for this round. These two bands scored in my top list, just in a different era.

What was the best gig you've been to?
The best gig was also the most random one I’ve been too. It was a small hidden bar in Bangkok that sits along a quiet street, serving cheap beer and great music - a band that sang effortlessly.

'Creep' by Radiohead.

What bands have you been listening to recently?
I've been listening to HYUKOH lately. I'm really inspired by the combination of their alluring music paired with the great visuals in their music videos.
