We interviewed Swiss Eurovision 2018 stars Zibbz, made up of Corinne and Stefan Gfeller. Check out the interview below.
Hello, how are you? Welcome to your interview at ESCtakeover.
Hi we’re doing great, thanks for having us!
How have you been spending your time since Eurovision?
We have been playing shows all over Switzerland and Germany and writing a lot of new music which we have been releasing every two months! Plus Coco just had a little baby boy! (In the night of Eurovision Finals 2019 – how crazy is that?!)
When you look back, how do you view your Eurovision experience?
An incredible experience! Something we will never forget our entire life!
Do you have any guilty pleasures?
Ice Cream! Oh and Stee likes to cut his hair himself.
Would you participate in Eurovision again?
Maybe, never say never… (: – If so, in another format/concept.
You’ve just released some new material, do you have any plans to tour?
Yes we do! Now that we have a mother in the band, we’re taking it a bit easier on the shows. (: In August/September we have a few festivals, and we hope there is more to come!
Do you have any upcoming projects?
We are currently recording a lot of demos/songs for a next album/EP. And we have other plans in the back of our mins. (:
Who has inspired you musically?
No doubt, P!nk, Jack White, Imagine Dragons, Bishop Briggs, Awolnation, Twenty One Pilots…
When you’re not making music, how do you relax?
Surfing, games and a nice relaxing evening with friends.
Coco, how is the baby doing?
Little Bowie is doing perfect. He lets me sleep every now and then! (:
Do you think your song ‘Stones’ has touched people with its empowering message?
We hope so! It’s beautiful to see how a song can connect you to so many great people!
I’ve heard you both know how to play multiple instruments, which ones in particular?
Stee plays Drums/Keys and a little Guitar/Bass. Coco plays Piano, some guitar and ukulele.
Were you cheering on Luca Hänni at Eurovision this year for Switzerland?
Of course! He did a great job! We are so happy for him! Dirrrrrrrrty dancing!
How’s it like in America? How did you celebrate Independence Day?
Coco just moved back to Switzerland and Stee is about to too. The future is more European based for us but living in L.A. for nine years was the best we could have done for our music career. We met so many cool people, and learned so much for our lives as musicians.
Who has been your biggest supporter since Eurovision (apart from each other!)
Our family and friends.
Do you have a spirit animal?
For Stee I guess Birds, and for Coco it’s her dog, Chili.
Thank you very much, Zibbz for taking time to answer our questions. We wish you the best of luck in the future.
