Q5 – With over 100,000 new tracks being uploaded to Spotify every day, how does this affect the music industry, and how does it make you feel as an artist?
Lauri: Music has become fast food for the consumer. Everything is available at all times and that means you really don’t have time to fuck-around with the songwriting. If the first 5 seconds don’t sound interesting, you’re gonna get skipped. Sometimes it makes me feel it’s impossible to make a career in music, but then I remember that making music is about who I am. Not about what I can achieve.
Arttu: No pressure at all. That’s the name of the game and we agreed to play it. U know it’s the same for everyone. And I think it’s much better than what was going on in the 80s/90s
Q6 – What are Borderline’s plans for the rest of 2023?
Lauri: Recording and songwriting. The next release should be before fall.
Arttu: Sorry, that’s all we can tell for now 🙂
Q7 – If you had the chance to play your music for a musical idol, who would it be, which Borderline song would you play first, and why that particular song?
Lauri: James Rolfe. He’s not really a musician but a writer and a filmmaker. I guess any song would be fine because I would just love to tell him how much he has inspired me as an artist.
Arttu: Lol I would like to hear what Ozzy thinks about Point Blank Hypocrisy.
Q8 – What is your perspective on the death metal world, and which acts do you think lead the scene?
Lauri: I really don’t have a clue about the scene and never have. I remember seeing memes about crabs or something.
Arttu: Not so into the scene… Anymore.
