Norwegian/Bulgarian Mikhael Paskalev makes sharp, summery pop music with an edge, and gives concise answers to questions during interviews. He's playing the i arena at this year's Latitude
Which latitude are you on right now?
Oslo, Norway. Just arrived back from Austin, Texas yesterday... still adjusting. feeling like fish on land, and even shittier the land has snow on it.
Sum up what you do for us in one sentence for anyone who might not know…
I write songs, record them with my mates and tour with my mates.
What’s the best thing about performing live?
When you get the whole room to dance.
Do you have any pre-show rituals?
A visit to the toilet can be a game changer.
What’s your best festival story for us? The stranger the better!
Once I drank so much alcohol, and I had a great time.
Tell us a something you’ve never told an interviewer before…
I haven't bought shampoo in half a year, cause I steal the ones in hotel rooms.
What’s your signature cooking dish?
What book/film/record etc. changed your life and why?
Twin peaks. Lynch showed me how something can be brilliant, tasteless, tasteful, funny and scary all at the same time. quite a trick
Knock Knock, who’s there?
A tasche-happy guy playing latitude festival.
And lastly, summarise Latitude in three words
