Athens’ electropop duo Berlin Brides have been one of the best bands at Indie Week 2010 in Toronto. My first experience of hearing their music was when I saw them play during the Indie Week festival launch night at The Hideout – they made an immediate impact on me, as you can read about here. After that show, I stepped outside the venue with Natasha (vocals) and Marilena (synth) for a spontaneous chat.

Berlin Brides spoke about how they got their name, what brought them to Indie Week, and their hopes of securing North American record distribution for their debut album Modern Celibacy which has just released this October in Europe and Japan via Inner Ear records. Natasha and Marilena also spoke of their love for old-school cameras, including Super-8 and polaroids (their album cover is a polaroid self-shot). They also revealed their passion for of indie film, naming some of their favourite directors as Miranda July, Jay and Mark Duplass and Andrew Bujalski.  Listen to the full interview below, (which I believe is the band’s first North American interview):
