Your favorite music video?
Tucker: M.I.A’s “Bad Girls.”
Sophie: The Blaze’s “Territory.”
Do you have any embarrassing moments from your live shows?
Sophie: There is one moment I was kind of out of my mind of the gig. It ended up deciding that it would be a good idea to do crowd surf, like in the strange part of the set. Also, I went like boobs first instead of I usually go on my back. And the crowd was really really far away.
Tucker: So, she hit the barrier! (laughs)
Sophie: I hit the barrier. My shins were completely bruised.
Who is the queen of pop?
Sophie: I would also go with Madonna. I just watched “Truth Or Dare” and I re-obsessed with her.
What is the last track that you have listened?
Tucker: It was Rokky’s “Sunshine.” It is actually not out yet. But it’s one of our good friends. We helped her with some of her music. We are starting a label and she is one of the artists.
What is your favorite track to play live?
Tucker: I love older tracks. Batshit! Is the new song from us, it is especially fun for us I like the lead sing.
Sophie: I would say Batshit too. It is just good dance track.
Tucker: It is a fun song.
Who are the “they” in your “F*ck They” track?
Tucker: (laughs) Who is they? I don’t a f*ck about they.
Sophie: They is like anybody and everybody. It is just anybody who thinks they know what you should do and how you should act.
Tucker: People that don’t let you be yourself. If someone is trying to hold you back from being yourself, and they are acting as “they”. Obviously, we don’t mean f*ck everybody. But you know, if someone is not letting us shine, be ourselves than “F*ck They.”
What is the weirdest track that you ever played live?
Sophie: We use to play Fade, we used to play Kanye.
Tucker: Yeah, we did a cover of Fade.
Sophie: And I had to change all the lyrics to make them appropriate for a woman to sing them.
Tucker: Yeah it was pretty funny.
