Aneiki Interview cont'd

Writer - Annemarie Failla

GIRL: On your album, you collaborated with some talented producers and songwriters, was this a bit daunting and overwhelming for you at first, to be in the company of such experienced people?

Jen: The day before the first trip we made to Stockholm in May 2000, I was sick with nerves. But from the moment we arrived, we met the guys and they were just great. They are some of our best friends now, we keep in regular contact and we just love them.

GIRL: What is the music scene like in Stockholm? Did you get to check it out much?

Grant: Yeah we did. They don't have a huge alternate scene, they love pop music and that's what the whole country revolves around. We tried to get out and see some of the non-mainstream bands over there, like Granada; we really liked them, and also Teddybears Stockholm.

GIRL: How hard was it being away from family and friends in Australia?

Jen: It was OK, we were there for three months. Grant and I are best mates so it would have been worse if only one of us was over there at the time.

GIRL: When you get a spare second away from the studios, what do you enjoy doing the most?

Jen: I spend a lot of time working on our website Aneiki.com, which is run by myself and my brother. That takes up a lot of my spare time, when I'm not shopping of course! (laughs)

GIRL: A noticeable difference between your website and other celebrity sites is that it is very personalised. Is it important for you to keep in close contact with all your fans?

Jen: Yeah absolutely, one part that we were really keen to keep control of was the internet and running of the website. There are a lot of girls on there who are really good friends of ours now. We're online every day, so it's great.

GIRL: Who are your musical influences?

Jen: I'm into stuff like Garbage, which is probably my favourite band. I also like Alannis Morrisette and Bjork.

Grant: I went and saw Tool recently, I'm not really a pop guy, I like different styles of music.

GIRL: Obviously it is very important in the Music Industry to make a film clip which is as good as the song it's representing. Was the "Please To Meet You" video the first one you have made? And did you enjoy the process of making it?

Jen: It was the first clip we've made. We had some great directors and producers working on our first one and we're going to use them on our second video. It took us 22 hours to make the "Pleased To Meet You" film clip.

Grant: Yeah, we were warned before we went in to film so it wasn't like we could complain either! (laughs)

GIRL: So where can fans catch you next?

Jen: We're just doing the promo thing at the moment so we're really all over the place doing TV, radio and those sorts of things. There will be no live, full band performances until the album is released.
