What they do: We make music.

Idyll

How they capture ideas:

Jojo – I’m a bit of a tech enthusiast so I rely on a bunch of apps to capture ideas – ones that I can access anywhere and easily reference in the studio. I make tons of secret Spotify playlists, collect inspirational sounds and images on Google Drive, and jot down ideas in Evernote. Oh boy, I sound like a Wired case study or something.

Angelina – Mindfulness and meditation.

If they were a sound:

Jojo – A water droplet in a cave.

Angelina – A vintage theremin.

IDYLL – A microwave.

What they believe in:

Jojo – I believe in the healing power of sleep and that a good dance floor session can make everything better.

Angelina – I believe in Earl Grey tea.

Children of Marx or Coca-Cola:

IDYLL – Coca-Cola, we think, although, Jojo’s cat’s are named Chairman and Fidel.

Something great they’ve read:

Jojo – Unfortunately, I don’t have too much time that I can dedicate towards reading. HBO and Showtime often get in the way. However, I’m really enjoying the Saga series by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

Angelina – The War of Art by Steven Pressfield.

A lingering question:

Jojo – Are ghosts real?

Angelina – Are UFOs real?

Heavy rotation:

Jojo – This week’s rotation: Alina Baraz & Galimatias, Caribou, Jacques Brel, Cakes da Killa.

Angelina – Blonde Redhead, Logic, Tink, Timber Timbre, Slow Dive, Erik Satie.

Style icon:

Jojo – Nuni and Noonie Schoener from SNL.

Angelina – Steve Jobs.

IDYLL’s WILD Wish:

Jojo – My WILD Wish is to be able to stop time and freeze everything/everyone around me. (Please refer to the late 80s fantasy sitcom, Out of This World.)

Angelina – My WILD Wish is to have the ability to speak with the dead, so I could talk to my mom.
