The Controversy Q&A

Your names: 
Laura Vall and Thomas Hjorth.

Where are you from? 
I'm from Barcelona, Spain, Thomas is from Copenhagen, Denmark.

Name of band: 
The Controversy.

Who else is in your band?
Thomas and I are the founders and the ones who write and produce the songs but we also have a live band beside us formed by Amy White (synths and backup vocals) and Kris Persson (drums).

How would you describe yourselves and your music?
 We like to call it Electronic Art Pop Psychedelia.

Who are your main influences musically?
Massive Attack, Portishead, Radiohead, Beck, St Vincent, Fiona Apple, Bjork, Air, Miike Snow.. among many others. 

What do you hope to achieve in music? 
A long and successful career in music.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why? 
We won Artist of the Year 2012 at Artists In Music Awards, Best Song Alternative Song of the Year 2012 at Hollywood Music In Media Awards, and Best Music Video of 2013 for "Real" at Artists In Music Awards, and all those awards gave us validity and strength to keep on pushing forward. With that said, it means the world for us very time we get a good review or a nice comment from a fan, that's always the highlight of our day.

And what’s the moment you want to forget? 
We are lucky to not have had any of those moments with this band so far, everyone has always been really great and we've always felt the love.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why? 
Our music is really eclectic and every song is our baby to us so it's very hard to choose only one. "Queen of Chinatown" is our latest single, so I'm gonna go with that one. 

Where can we listen to it?
