Ahoy, Captain! Captain Capa's Hannes Naumann is the subject of today's Take Aim. The band is fresh off a Warped Tour stint and we dig 'em.
Twitter-size your bio -- your choice of 140 words or characters, if you want to get technical-- and tell us everything we need to know! GO!
Two pre-school friends decided to spice up their small town lives with synthesizers, accidentally dedicating their lives to tour and making music.
If you were not doing music, you would be...
Stuck in a really shitty job, cause we're the worst at school. Or hustling more around with graphic design stuff, Hannes at least.
Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?
Hannes draws and scribbles all the time and does a lot of graphic design. Otherwise we're both passionate gamers, wasting our time on controllers and ego shooters. Boom.
Pick ONE song on your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?
We recorded this song called 'Vienna' on our latest record Foxes. We told it a few times, it's a very intimate song, a very personal one. What most people don't know is that we recorded it on a day where all of us were so hungover and in a kind of bad mood, that it made the song even better in the end. Maik was sleeping in the recording room, while I was fiddling around for hours with tiny details with our producer Norman. He woke up totally fucked up and just said, 'Oh my god, that sounds awesome. Is that us?' In the end, it's one of our favorite songs ever.
Finish this sentence: Captain Capa is the artist that...
... that you'll most definitely fall in love with forever after two or three choruses.
Two choruses in and WE were hooked.
