French duo Total Warr make me happy. Every single time I listen to their infectious, happy electronic pop it is a pleasant diversion from the overly serious nature of American indie rock. Our musicians could learn a lot from from Kiki and Guigui about how to have fun while still making amazing music.
Total Warr has been exceptionally busy as of late. Between getting their latest EP Loisy ready for release and collaborating with Japanther on the fantastic track "Outside It Looks Like Snow," we are surprised that they had any time to sit down and answer our questions. Thankfully they were able to take a couple of moments and reveal at least one highly entertaining secret! Check out the Sleeping Guigui Tumblr page linked below!
