My little sister Amy is totally into this pop girl group from Sweden called Play. They have this really catchy remake of Every Little Step on the airwaves right now, and I thought I'd chat it up with them a little and see what's up. Here's the interview I did with Rosie Munter and Anna Sundstrand, two members of the coolest pop act from Sweden - Play!
Sindy: So you totally have to tell me, what was it like working with Aaron Carter on Every Little Step?Rosie Munter: We actually got the idea, and we called up Aaron, and asked him if he was interested in singing it. He came right back and his answer was positive. We're looking forward to performing it with him this summer. It's going to be a blast!
Sindy: Every Little Step was a wicked-popular tune in the '80s, were you nervous to remake it?Rosie Munter: It's such a catchy song and it fitted Play's and Aaron's personality so well! No, we weren't that nervous. Remember we made a remake of Ain't No Mountain High Enough one of the best soul songs ever done? Well THAT was pretty scary.
Sindy: Yes, I remember Ain't No Mountain High Enough. That was cool too. You guys have been together for a while now, what is your most memorable moment since forming Play?Rosie Munter: Getting the gold album and performing in my hometown Stockholm, in the largest arena, where I've been going since I've been a kid, waching my idols Anna Sundstrand: It has to be the first performance we ever did. It was the first date on the Aaron Carter tour, and when we were standing on the stage, it was the first time it felt real for me.
Sindy: You guys have a good fan base now and you're busy doing albums, tours, photos shoots and all the glamorous stuff. Is there a downside to being a celebrity?Rosie Munter: Well, it's really hard to see yourself as a celebrity, but I would say no - except that people can really misjudge Anna Sundstrand: You don't get to sleep a lot!!! Ha-ha!
Sindy: Can you guys tell us one thing - about each of you - that the fans might not know?Rosie Munter: Anais sleepwalks Anna Sundstrand: Maybe that I'm lactose intolerant. Hee Hee!
Sindy: What advice would you give other girls who have dreams of being in a successful singing group like yours?Rosie Munter: You have got to work really hard. It doesn't help that you just want it, you have to be willing to walk through fire Anna Sundstrand: I know everybody says the same thing, but it's true, you just have to believe in yourself and your dreams.
