After meeting as "accidental roommates in Copenhagen," the Swedish/Icelandic duo started singing together all the time. At their first open mic, an Italian on a bicycle set this whole music career in motion, because when: "Things come to us and we say, 'Yes.'"

With a love for the Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys as well as American folk music, "We're both very fascinated by the past and tradition and history," they told Sabin. And in the interest of remaining organically independent they also recently started their own label. Much like their music, the pair are sweet and soft-spoken.

Watch their conversation below, and then check back in on the fourth Monday of every month for a new Interview Series episode from Pickathon 2016.
