Summer’s here and that means one thing: Future Music Festival is just around the corner. We had a chat with Sigma ahead of their performance at the festival and getting to enjoy an Australian summer this time around.
Hey Sigma, how are you and what are you up to right now?
I’m good thanks, just in the studio working on new music.
You seem to have a lot on your plate at the moment, amongst getting nominated for awards, performing at events and launching your new website, have you had a chance to take some time out and relax at all?
Not really, I think we’re going to need a holiday very soon!
You recently worked with Paloma Faith too, how was that?
It was great, she’s an amazing vocalist and a very inspiring person.
Are there any other musicians you’d like to work with?
There are tonnes; Emeli Sande, Maverick Sabre, Jacob Banks, Ella Eyre…the list goes on.
You both seem to be really active on social media with your fans, do you think it’s important to maintain that connection?
We do it because we enjoy it, and it definitely helps. The other side of it is, you get people coming up to you in clubs feeling like they know you, which is pretty strange, but interesting nonetheless.
Earlier this year you came to Australia, unfortunately during winter, are you excited to catch a bit of the Australian summer this time around?
Yeah we can’t wait to get our pasty bodies out on Bondi beach. Sight for sore eyes…
What are your thoughts on the Australian crowd? Do we know how to party?
Australian crowds are always fun, enthusiastic people with great vibes. Can’t wait to come back out.
When you play Future Music festival is there anyone you’re hoping to take some time out and see play live on the day?
Definitely Drake, we are big fans of him.
Aside from music you seem to have a bit of love for street art. What’s the street art scene like over in London?
It’s cool, Banksy has made it very commercial, but in turn that opens it up to a wider audience.
And Gnasher actually did a mural of you both, how’d it feel seeing yourselves interpreted on the wall like that?
It was great, it looked amazing.
Thanks again for taking the time out to chat with Forte, is there anything you’d like to add before we finish up?
Come and see us at Future music festival 2015! Also check out our website and download our debut album early next year.
