Words By Joey Rochert.
Hello, Secret Wish, Let’s talk about your new single, ‘Voodoo Nights’, what is the meaning?
We wanted to make a song that is a bit in the dark underworld. It is likely that the way each listener experiences this will be different. ‘Voodoo Nights’ has a seductive atmosphere that evokes the mysticism of voodoo spirits and the enigmatic world they live in. The lyrics paint a vivid picture of an enchanting and mysterious nightlife experience. Moreover, it is a journey to a realm where anything can happen.
Which artists in the current industry inspire you the most?
Kurt has a musical taste which stems from his background as a DJ in his younger years. From that point of view, he is mainly inspired by the Dance/EDM scene such as Avicii, Eric Prydz, Faithless, Swedish House Maffia, David Guetta plus more.
Heidi started singing at a very young age, was part of a number of groups, and was also active as a singer in cover bands. It goes without saying that she also has an extensive musical history and is inspired by Lost Frequencies, Armin Van Buuren, Koven, Netsky, Alan Walker and so on.
What is the best thing about being a musician in 2023?
Anything is possible as long as you’re passionate.
Is there a certain place you often go to write? E.g. a certain room, or environment?
Ideas can come alive everywhere. Often, lyrics find their shape on the road. Simple things you see when you’re driving somewhere can be a source of inspiration. The musical part requires more structure in a settled environment.
What is your first memory of music?
Like all teenagers, we loved listening to music. We didn’t pay much attention to the lyrics, or what they sang. But as non-native English speakers, it encouraged us to learn English.
