You voted for them and crowned them the winners of our Miley Cyrus ‘We Can’t Stop’ Cover Star poll! And since you love these guys so much, we had no choice but to track the Swedish boyband down and have a good old chinwag.
Here’s how our little interview with Adam, John, Samuel and Simon (or as they are known on YouTube, DotSE) went down.
[column width=half]Hi DotSE, nice to meet you! Congratulations on winning our MP! Cover Star Poll with your Miley Cyrus ‘We Can’t Stop’ Cover. What are your worst habits that you just can’t stop doing?
Adam: When we get together to record a new cover, our schedule is crazy. We have very little time and since we’re doing everything ourself, we have to work from early mornings to late nights. That sometimes makes us forget to eat. And sleep. And that’s pretty important when you’re singing.
You have some other great covers on your YouTube channel, what is your favourite song to perform?
Samuel: Thank you! We actually like to perform our latest cover, We Can’t Stop by Miley Cyrus. The harmonies in our cover is very fun to sing and combined with the guitar… Well, we’re loving every second!
You all met on The X Factor in Sweden (except for Adam), Little Mix won the X Factor over here in the UK a year ago! If you were a girl band, which girl band would you be and why?
Simon and Samuel: Little Mix – They have a cool image!
Adam: Fifth Harmony- The harmonies are extremely good!
Johan: Spice Girls- They are classics!
Who are your celebrity crushes?
Samuel: Emma Wattson
Adam: Jessica Alba
Johan: Miley Cyrus
Simon: Cheryl Cole
If you could work with any artist in the world, who would it be?
Simon: Justin Bieber
Johan: Justin Bieber
Adam: Brian McFadden
Samuel: Chris Brown
Did you see that Justin Bieber peed into a mop bucket? Where is the strangest place you’ve peed?
Johan: We actually peed in the same mop bucket, just a couple of minutes after Justin!! We thought no one would notice it… [/column]
[column width=half last=true]You come from Sweden, the home of amazing pop music and most importantly IKEA. What is your favourite item of flat packed furniture?
Simon: We don’t know exactly what flat packed furniture means, but we’re guessing it’s the same as furniture? Haha! A couch is always nice to relax on
If you were to serenade Maximum Pop! with a song, what would you sing?
Adam: Pop – NSync of course!
Have you seen Lawson’s nude photoshoot? Would you ever do a photo like this? If you ever did, who would need the biggest instrument?
Samuel: Of course we’d do the same! … But we’d need four cellos!
What is your next cover going to be?
Simon: It’s a secret!
You are awesome at doing cover songs but is there any plans for original music from DotSE?
Johan: Thank you! We’re actually traveling the world right now, we’ve been to Los Angeles, London, Kopenhagen to mention a few) to meet well-known songwriters and producers, to get them interested in us. And to date, everyone’s been positive and willing to work with us!
So we’ve recorded over 20 demo songs and we’re going to record a lot more to find the perfect songs for – wait for it – an upcoming album!
We’re not signed yet but some major record labels has showed interest in us.
But until everything’s done and the contracts has been signed, we’ll keep doing covers to get more people to know about us.
Most importantly of all, are you Team One Direction or The Wanted?
Simon: To be honest, we could never choose side. We don’t see a reason to, they are both great boybands which make awesome music. We support them both.[/column]
Here is another of DotSE covers, it’s Selena Gomez’s ‘Come & Get it’. What a talented bunch!
