Fool Moon: “We try to spice it up a bit!” [Interview]

With A Dal continuing tonight, we spoke to one of last year’s superfinalists. Fool Moon was close to winning the ticket last year, so now they’re back with the song Back 2 Right! We spoke to Gábor Molnár and Mickye Németh, two of the members of Fool Moon. Read what they had to say below!

escXtra.com: Hey guys! Thanks for taking the time to speak to us! How are you?
Mickye: We are all right, thanks, we have a really good year, big concerts and a new album behind just finished, and we’re really excited about the contest.

X: Second time in a row in A Dal. Why did you decide to return?
Gábor: It’s always fun to be in A Dal. We’d like to show something else, something new about Fool Moon, so this year we’ll perform a cheerful song with more dynamics.

X: You’ve got so much experience now, do you think that will help you in A Dal 2015?
M: Yes, we think we’re well prepared for anything that could happen. Let’s hope nothing happens. :-) These experiences will help us this year as well.

X: What can you tell us about your song Back 2 Right?
G: Our new song is about a love which came from a friendship. It’s happy, uptempo, easy-to-remember song. The music is written by Gábor Molnár for the lyrics of Kasai Jnofinn.

X: What’s going to be your special ingredient to win A Dal?
M: Our special ingredient is Fool Moon itself. :-) It’s unique because of the a cappella style. No a cappella band had ever performed in A Dal, Fool Moon was the first in Hungary last year. This year we’re unique again. Of course we try to spice it up a bit with a choreography and visual tricks.

X: What’s your favourite place in Hungary?
G: Szeged, my hometown.
M: Of course it’s Szeged. My second hometown.

X: What’s your favourite thing to eat or drink?
G: Tokaji wine, layered potatoes
M: Pineapple rice and a fine coffee.

X: Are you Eurovision fans?
G: No.
M: No, sorry.

X: Do you have an all time favourite Eurovision song?
G: Friderika Bayer – Kinek Mondjam El Vétkeimet?
M: ABBA – Waterloo

X: Finally, do you have a message for the readers of escXtra.com?
M: Yes. Thanks for reading and give a cappella a chance!

escXtra.com would like to thank Mickye and Gábor for their time to answer our questions and we’d like to wish them the best of luck in tonight’s A Dal! Watch their song Back 2 Right below!
