Every week leading up to Berserktown II, we will be posting a Seven Questions interview with a band playing the fest. This week: Lust For Youth. Last week: Wax Idols.

Scandinavian people are so odd. Doesn’t it feel like they’re always just eating fish spreads for breakfast and making cute affordable furniture and taking good care of their citizens and radiating a frosty yet intense sexuality? Lust For Youth does most of these things, and also makes broody, sensual electro pop that makes me want to do sad, sexy dances around my room, which incidentally is filled with poorly put together cute affordable Scandinavian furniture and various fish spreads. They hate interviews and puppies and laughter and the only one looking at the camera in the photo above isn’t even Scandinavian OR in the band (well played, Jansen) but I’ll be damned if they don’t make some fine upbeat goth tunes (watch their adorable video, directed by Cali Dewitt, below).

Here’s their 7 question interview, with extremely verbose frontman Hannes Norrvide:


What is your life motto?

Yes, amazing.


Who is your muse?

Yes. You.


What is your idea of misery?



What is your idea of happiness?



What is the best quality in a woman?



What is the best quality in a man?
