Twist Online : Any story behind the name “Saape”?
Saape : Haha, both of them laughed a little. Actually it is the Norwegian name for soap, yes like you use to wash your hands. And the story behind is actually quite simple, we had a hard time coming up with a name for this project so we started to make a list with casual items and on top of one list was Saape(soap) and no one had used this name before so we just went for it.
Twist Online : Tell us about your recently released first single ‘Alone’?
Saape : Our first single out there yes, this is the song marking the start of our hopefully long journey in the industry. It started at kind of a tropical house kind of EDM tune, before we ended up with this result that we actually and truly love.
