Q&A with Tobias
Where is the name ‘ANT ANTIC’ came from?
The general idea for the name Ant Antic was the alliteration. Although it’s kinda nonsensical it was the first name that felt good and we stuck with it. I mean basically, every band name is shit. It’s the connotation to good music that makes them sound better.
Where are you from and how did you meet?
We’re originally from Upper Austria but make mot of our music in Vienna & Berlin.
When did you start making music together?
We started making music in 2015 in the setting of another project which more or less evolved to Ant Antic later.
How much time did you work on your debut album ‘Wealth’?
I was working two and a half years exclusively on this releases. I’m super excited that it finally gets released.
What music do you like to listen / favourite artists or bands and influences
It’s quite a big variety of artists that I enjoy. I love the voices of Roberta Flack, Patrick Watson, Guy Garvey or John Lennon. But right now I listen to a lot of Hip-Hop like Steve Lacy, Noname, Vince Staples or Kendrick. Generally, I dig loads of future beat home producers, old Motown Classics.
The last band/singer that you discovered, loved and in your opinion, people should listen to him/her/them
A friend of mine showed me this wonderful Japanese band from the 80ies called “Mariah”. I totally fell in love with their album “Utakata No Hibi”.
Tell a funny/sad/touching/motivating/whatever story from your life as a musician
We once collectively went jogging right after playing a festival show due to a little blood sugar incident.
