My name is Attila Tatár, i play guitars and sing vocals in the band.
Where are you currently based?
The main base of the band is in our hometown, Gheorgheni which is located in the mountains of Transylvania – Romania. For the summer season we usually move to Hungary, (near the lake Balaton) as we write and sing our songs in our mothertongue which is hungarian.

We play and tour mostly in hungarian speaking places, mainly in Hungary and some of the neighbore countries such as Slovakia, and Transylvania-Romania.
Favorite show of the tour so far? And why?
Every show has its own magic, but this years gig on one of our favourite festivals Fishing On Orfű is the absolute winner of this year so far in Hungary. In Transylvania the festival held by the Hungarian Students (MMDSZ Napok) of Targu Mures was the best.

Top 3 icons?
We really like and we are inpired by the Mumford and Sons, Coldplay and Kodaline, Of Monsters and Man, Lumineers – I know this is more than 3 but I could not make any difference.
What influences your music?
As I mentioned we listen to a lot of new music and i guess all this musical stuff going on right now in the world influences us in some ways. We do not want to play necesarrly in one certain style. We only have a sound which caracterizes the band. If we feel that a new song we write need some electronic base or the other a more acoustic style we do it.
Favorite food and place to hangout?
We eat a lot out while traveling to the gigs so we have a lot of favourite places and meals we used to have there. I think oe of our favourite food is a kind of romanian soup we discovered together and it is called Radaut style Ciorba (ciorba is a special way cooked romanian soup done with different flavoures and ways). If i have to name a place where we like to hang out is deffinitely the Lake Balaton in the Summer season. During the winter we like to go back to the mountains.
