Slobodno mogu reću da sam vrlo ponosan na ovaj intervju , jer u njemu predstavljam dve dame iz Grčke (MARSHEAUX) koje sam prvi put novosadskoj javnosti predstavio jedne nedelje pre nekih 5 godina u svojoj emisiji MySpace na tadašnjem IN Radiju. Bio sam brzo osvojen njihovom muzikom a i vrlo brzo je ta muzika osvojila i tadašnje slušaoce slobodno mogu reći najboljeg radija u Srbiji. Marsheaux dolaze na EXIT , tačnije domaćin im je moj omiljeni ELEKTRANA stage www.elektrana.net Marianthi i Sophie želim još jednom da Vam poželim dobrodošlicu i da vas ljudi kroz ovaj intervju u potpunosti upoznaju pre nego što stanu pred vas te večeri 10.jula.2011!

Marsheaux































1.Vaše ime Marsheaux zvuči vrlo francuski, kako je nastalo?
Iskombinovale smo prve slogove naših imena Marianthi i Sophie, a zatim smo dodale malo francuskog “prizvuka” kada smo ga napisale. Dok smo ga izgovarale, ime je zvučalo francuski i odmah nam se svidelo.
2.Već dugo ste na muzičkoj sceni ,šta vidite kada se osvrnete u nazad?
Nemamo osecaj da smo dugo na muzičkoj sceni, osećamo se kao da smo novitet. Započele smo 2003 godine kao fanovi muzike, a ne kao profesionalci i dan danas učimo. Kada pogledmao iza nas, ne možemo da verujemo koliko bi nam zivot bio laksi da smo samo imale Ipod.
3.Šta Vam je najviše pomoglo da ljudi van Grčke saznaju za vas?
Internet, naravno. Prvenstveno Myspace, Facebook, YouTube i Twitter su omogucili pristup nasoj muzici, ljudima sirom sveta. Internet je najvece bogatstvo za sve muzicare sirom sveta.
4.Da li je Grčka zemlja u kojoj je electro pop ,muzika poput vaše popularna?
Ne.
80% muzike koju ljudi slušaju je iz lokalnog repertoara. Iako su ljudi tu vrstu muzike nazvali “pop”, to je više “folk” i “etno”. Electro pop ne postoji u Grčkoj za većinu ljudi, postoji
jako malo grupa i umetnika koji pokušavaju da upoznaju ljude sa tom vrstom muzike, ali tesko je uz slabu podrsku specifičnih medija.
5.Da li ste vas dve ikada pomišljale na odlazak van Grčke zbog karijere?
Da. Mislili smo o tome hiljadu puta, ali Grčka je tako lepo mesto za život i to nam otežava da donesemo tu odluku. Jos uvek razmišljamo o tome, posebno sad kad je kriza.
6.Da li vas često porede i sa kim sa svetske muzičke scene?
O da. Porede nas sa dosta umetnika koje i mi volimo kao sto su Client, Ladytron i sa starijim bendovima kao OMD ili Human League.
7.Koje ime sa svetske scene je uticalo na vaš rad, zvuk?
Lista je dugacka, da nabrojimo par, kao sto su Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Cabaret Voltaire, Human League, OMD, DURAN DURAN, Gary Numan, Sparks, Giorgio Moroder, Massive Attack, Orbital, Royksopp i mnogi drugi.
8.Obradile ste legendarni hit Popcorn , da li postoji želja za obradom još neke pesme i koja je to?
Opet dugacak spisak. Postoji puno pesama koje volimo i koje zelimo da obradimo. Zato smo i obradili pesme kao sto su “Promise” od When In Rome i “Pure” od Lightning Seeds i jos neke. Obicno obradjujemo pesme kada zelimo da se zabavimo i opustimo u studiju, uradili smo jos dosta obrada ali nismo ih sve objavili.






9.Koji je po vama najveći hit osamdesetih , s obzirom da je vidljiv uticaj tog muzičkog perioda na vaš rad?
Tesko pitanje.Mozda recimo Eurythmics “Sweet Dreams” ili Yazoo ”Don’t Go “ ili OMD “If You Leave” ili Human League “Don’t You Want Me”, ne mozemo da se odlucimo, dugacka je lista.
10.Koji je Vaš najveći uspeh do sada...?
Naše porodice.
11.Postoji li neko ime sa muzičke scene sa kojim bi ste volelel da uradite neku pesmu?
Voleli bismo da saradjujemo sa dosta ljudi, sa umetnicima koje postujemo i cuju muziku volimo.
12.Ko je vaše muzičko otkriće u poslednje vreme?
Skoro smo otkrili Miracles koje NME zove “umetnicka verzija Hurts-a” i ne mozemo da prestanemo da slusamo novi Mirrors. Takodje volimo i Naked And Famous i Cults.
13.Kako i kada ste saznale za Exit festival?
Ljudi koje vole nasu muziku znaju za vecinu festivala, posebno oni blizu njihovih zemalja. Prvi put smo čuli za Exit, 2004 godine kada smo tražili da nadjemo gde nastupa grupa Goldfrapp, a da bude blizu Grčke. Trebali smo i da dodjemo, ali nešto se desilo pa smo morali da otkažemo u poslednjem trenutku.
14.Koliko Vam znači nastup na Elektrana Stage-u
Ovo je jako vazan nastup za nas. Nikada nismo nastupali na tako velikom festivalu sa toliko poznatih imena. Jako smo srecni zbog toga,a posebno zbog Elektrana Stage koji je po nama
najadekvatnija pozornica za nasu vrstu muzike.
15.Da li pripremate nešto specijalno za publiku na Elektrani?
Trenutno radimo na necemu, ali ne mozemo da otkrijemo da ne pokvarimo iznenadjenje!
16.Koju vašu pesmu ljudi moraju da čuju ako nisu, pre nego što dođu na koncert i zašto?
Treba da odslusaju sve nase pesme!
Neka pocnu sa “Computer Love” posto je to jedna od nasih prvih pesama i najbolji nacin za uvod u nasu muziku.
“Dream Of A Disco” zato sto je to jedan od nasih najvecih hitova i volimo da je izvodimo uzivo.
“Breakthrough” zato sto je sa naseg poslednjeg albuma pa cisto da bi bili upoznati i sa njom.











17." Can you Stop me " je vaš novi singl, kada će novi album biti izdat?
“Can You stop Me” se ne nalazi na albumu, ne znamo jos. Nadamo se d ace nas novi album biti spreman za jesen, verovatno u oktobru.
18.Šta je prvo na šta pomislite i zbog čega se radujete dolasku u Novi Sad?
Prva stvar na koju pomislimo su slike grada, okrutno bomabardovanog 1999godine i ljudi u sklonistima. Sigurno vam je bilo tesko.
EXIT festival je velika sansa za nas da posetimo vas grad. Volimo muziku, a vas festival je najvecii u regiji. Radujemo se sto cemo prisustvovati svim danima festivala is to ćemo posetiti
grad za koji smo čitali da je najlepši grad u Srbiji.
19.Čija je poslednja reč kada su neke bitne odluke o karijeri u pitanju Sophie ili Marianthi?
Obe isto razmisljamo, tako da vecinu stvari ni ne diskutujemo. Sve je vrsta precutnog dogovora.
20.Marsheaux posle Exit festivala?
Godisnji odmori i finisiranje naseg novog albuma.

Marsheaux




























Marsheaux
































ENGLISH
1.Your name Marsheaux sounds very French, what is the origin of it?
We combined the first syllables of our names Marianthi and Sophie and we added a French “touch” when we wrote it. While pronouncing it, the name sounded very French and we loved it immediately.
2.You have been present on the music scene for a long time, what do you see when you look behind?
We don’t feel like being in the music scene for a long time, actually we feel like a novice. We started at 2003 as music lovers, not as professionals and we haven’t stop learning since
then. When we look behind we can’t believe how easier our life would have been with an ipad.
3.What has helped you the most for the people outside Greece to recognize you?
Internet of course. Myspace at first, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter gave to people all over the world, access to our music. Internet is one of the most valuable assets for musicians
worldwide.
4. Is electro pop, music like yours popular in Greece?
No.80% of the music that people listen to our country is local repertoire. Although people have baptized this 80% “pop” music, it actually is more “folk” and “ethnic”. Electro pop does not exist in Greece for most of the people, we are very few bands and artists trying to get people into it, but it is very difficult with very little support from specific media.
5.Have the two of you ever considered leaving Greece to pursue worldwide career?
Yes. We have thought about it many times, but Greece is such a beautiful place to live in and it makes the decision harder to take. We are still thinking about it especially with that crisis.
6.Do they ever compare you to somebody from the world scene?
Oh yes. With lots of artists and bands we admire like Client, Ladytron and older bands like OMD or Human League.
7.Who has influenced your work and sound, from the world scene?
It’s a huge list, we’ll name a few, like Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Cabaret Voltaire, Human League, OMD, DURAN DURAN, Gary Numan, Sparks, Giorgio Moroder, Massive Attack, Orbital, Royksopp and many many more.
8.You have made your version of legendary hit Popcorn , do you have a wish to do some other song and which one?
Again a huge list. There are so many songs that we love and we want to cover them. That is why we did some more covers like “Promise” by When In Rome or “Pure” by Lightning Seeds and a few others. Usually we do covers when we want to have fun and relax at the studio, we did many covers but we never released them.
9.According to you what is the greatest eighties hit, since we hear recognizable influence of this period in your work?
Difficult question 
Maybe Eurythmics “Sweet Dreams” or Yazoo ”Don’t Go “ or OMD “If You Leave” or Human League “Don’t You Want Me” really can’t choose the list is long.
10.What is your greatest success so far...?
Our families.
11.Is there anybody from the music scene you would like to work with?
We’d love to work with many people, with all the artists we admire and love their music.
12.What is your music discovery lately?
We’ve just discover Miracles that NME calls an “artier Hurts”, and we can’t stop listening the new Mirrors. Also we liked Naked And Famous and Cults
13.How and when have you heard about Exit festival?
People that love music know most of the music festivals, especially the ones that are very close to their country. We first heard about Exit in 2004 when we were searching where to see
Goldfrapp play live near Greece. We were about to come but something happened and we canceled the last minute.
14.How much your performance at Elektrana Stage would mean to you?
It is a very important performance for us. We ‘ve never played in such a big festival, with so many big names before. We are very happy to be there and especially at Elektrana Stage which we think is the most appropriate for the kind of music we perform.
15.Are you preparing something special for the audience at you Elektrana performance?
We are working on something but we can’t tell, that would spoil the surprise!
16.Which of your songs should people hear-if they hadn’t already, before they come to concert and why?
They should listen to all our songs!
They should start with “Computer Love” cause it is one of our first songs and is the best way to get into our music.
“Dream Of A Disco” cause it is one of our biggest hits and we love playing it live.
“Breakthrough” cause it is from our last album so they would have an idea of what it is.
17."Can you Stop me " is you new single, when will you publish your new album?
“Can You stop Me” might not be in the album, we don’t know yet. We hope our new album will be ready after summer, it maybe ready in October.
18. What is the first thing that comes to you mind when you think about Novi Sad and why are you looking forward to coming to out town?
The first thing that comes to our mind is the images of the city that was cruelly bombed in 1999 and people in the shelters. It was really heard.EXIT festival is a great opportunity to
visit the city. We love music, so it couldn’t be otherwise, it is the biggest festival in the area. We are so looking forward to attend all the days of the festival and to visit the city
that we’ve read is the most beautiful city in Serbia.
19.Who makes the final and big decisions when it comes to your career - Sophie or Marianthi?
We both think the same way, we usually don’t even have to discuss about something. It's a silent mutual understanding.
20.Marsheaux after Exit festival?
Holidays and finishing our new album.
