The Hard Rock Chick Wants to Know: Who or what are your biggest influences?

No one works in a vacuum. Nowadays, we have the world at our fingertips, and we can consume as much information and entertainment as our little hearts desire. This means that musical influences can run the gamut. I asked a few bands what influences them:

Who or what are your biggest influences?

“Our influences are far and few between. Personally, I love Depeche Mode, Ace of Base, 60’s girl bands like the Shangri-La’s, The Sonics, Burial…jeez the list goes on and on, but I think that Lilofee in itself is really influenced by its surroundings and by the experiences that both Rob and I have had. Every song is a story based on a real experience, and the sounds and words all come together to try and illustrate a moment in time that has already passed. So I guess I would say that the biggest influences on Lilofee are the stories that define our life.”

-Kimi, Lilofee

“Us. When you’re as great as we are, we could pretty much spend all day staring at ourselves in the mirror, singing our own praises. We even wrote a song about it (‘Mirror, Mirror’). Seriously – why would we give credit to anyone besides ourselves for inventing something as perfect as we are? Charity? Welfare? Pity? Sorry, kids – the Yuppie Pricks don’t play that. Out.”
