Interview: Claire // Pioneers

Today we have something really special for you. We had the chance to have a short interview – 7 questions and 7 answers – with Claire. Behind the group, there are three young, Munich-based musicians – Matthias Hauck, Nepomuk Heller and Florian Kiermaier – who teamed up to produce a track with the singer-songwriter Josie-Claire Bürkle for a friend’s film project.  In collaboration with the guys from Wild Eyes (group of creative artists), they produced a fashion film for their newest track “Pioneers”.

Claire, tell us what passion drives your music?

We all feel that this constellation could be a once-in-a-lifetime thing not just musically, but also as far as friendships goes. We started this band with the aim to write and produce music we can truly identify with and as a result of the amazing feedback we got, our last doubts disappeared. Right now we feel like there is no other way than to just keep doing it.

What type of music are you following personally?

 Actually, it’s really hard to generalize here. We listen to a lot of different styles of music, we each have our own preferences, but we all share the same sound aesthetics, and that’s how Claire sounds…

What do you want the audience to listen for the most in your music?

For us, every track has its own meaning and feeling. We all have a precise picture of each song in our minds. But what we want to achieve is, writing songs, that don’t only allow one single feeling or picture, but giving the audience the chance to interpret the songs them selves and create there own images .

If you think about some tracks that remind you of your childhood, what would it be?

Josie :           Tracy Chapman – Talking about a revolution 

Flo :               Red Hot Chili Peppers – My Friends

Nepo :           Beastie Boys – Sabotage

Messel :        Michael Jackson – Thriller

If you had to describe your music with one word, what would it be?


What is the inspiration that drives you when you write? 

 Creating something without anyone telling you how it should be.

Can you tell us one experience about your music career which was extraordinary for you?

 Actually, Claire and the experience of working together is turning out to be this one extraordinary experience…

Thanks for the answers Claire! We wish you all the best! And great job to Christoph Schaller (Producer), Hannah H (Styling) & Ana Saraiva (Model+Styling)!

    its music by Jack Bruce . It was the first track on the US issue of their debut album, Fresh Cream (1966), and the band’s second hit single (the first being ” Wrapping Paper “). As with all tracks on Cream’s US debut, producer’s credit went to Robert Stigwood .
