Norwegian boyband The Main Level are made up of Sander, Laurent and Alex, three boys in their early twenties who are cooking up a storm with their music. The lads’ first ever UK show is this August and when we got the chance to interview them, we decided to play the ‘First Time’ game.
Hey guys! You’ve got your first UK gig coming up, how do you feel about it?
We feel ready! We’ve been a band for around two years now, so it feels fantastic for us to finally be able to do a show in the UK and meet our UK fans. We simply can’t wait!
We want to know what was the first ever album you bought?
Sander: ‘Help!’ by The Beatles.
Laurent: ‘Thriller’ by Michael Jackson.
Alex: The first physical album I bought was ‘Encore’ by Eminem. But the first album I bought on iTunes was our album, haha.
Which artist’s show was your first ever concert?
Sander: A-ha :)
Laurent: Justin Bieber :)
Alex: Coldplay :)
What can you remember about the first show you played together?
We remember being pumped, nervous in a good way, and we felt like this was meant to be.
What was your first kiss like – any funny or embarrassing stories?
Sander: I think I was 11 years old. I closed my eyes, leant over to kiss her, and I missed. I kissed her nose instead of her mouth.
Laurent: We were in the kindergarten. I put a flower in my mouth and said that if she wanted it she had to grab it with her lips. As soon as she approached I spit out the flower and she kissed me instead.
Alex: I actually kissed two girls at the same time. I was about 10 years old, and I couldn’t choose which one to kiss so I kissed both.
Can you remember your first tweet?
Hmm, check out our Twitter if you really wanna know 😜
Who was your first celebrity crush? Ours was Zac Efron and we aren’t even ashamed.
Sander: Definitely Taylor Swift. I remember seeing her on a TV commercial, and I thought she was beautiful.
Laurent: I have to say Beyoncé. She was the Queen back in the day. She still is.
Alex: For me it was Selena Gomez when I first saw her on Disney Channel.
You may need to ask your parents for this one, but do you know what your first word was?
Who was the first person to text you today?
Sander: My mom.
Laurent: Someone stole my phone…!
Alex: Our manager.
What was the first thing you thought when you woke up this morning?
Sander: A cute girl I saw yesterday.
Laurent: I didn’t have any time to think before my dog jumped into the bed trying to wake me up.
Alex: I need to text the girl I met yesterday!
Laurent: They met the same girl 😂
That must be awkward! Do you still talk to your first love?
Sander: Sometimes yes.
Laurent: Not really…
Alex: No, not anymore.
What’s the first thing you do when you get home?
Sander: We all usually do the same thing and that is to answer as many fans as possible on Instagram, Musical.ly, Facebook and Twitter. But before that I eat some ice cream.
Laurent: Play with the dog
Alex: Take a selfie
Can you remember the first email address you ever had? Ours was [email protected]
Quickly – what’s the first word that comes to mind?
Thanks guys, see you soon!
We can’t wait to meet all of you on August 18th at the 02 Academy Islington in London! 💗
