Måneskin made his Glastonbury debut yesterday (Saturday 24 June) and caught up with NME backstage to talk about his dreams of meeting Guns N’ Roses and Lana Del Rey, collaborating with Bring Me The Horizon and his thoughts on his next album.
In the early afternoon, the former Eurovision winners turned global rock sensations into the colorful tent of the Woodsies stage to give Worthy Farm a taste of the amazing stage show as their world tour continues. of 2023.
For a break from the madness, we caught up with the four for a quick chat and photo session to take stock.
NME: Hello Måneskin. You’re probably the coolest person in all of Glastonbury.
Victoria DeAngelis, bass: “It’s not too hard a battle!”.
I know you enjoyed watching the Arctic Monkeys concert. Do you feel the magic of playing Glasto?
Thomas Raggi, guitar: “We’re excited. Of course you see those historical videos of bands from the past, so we’re excited tonight.”
V: “You can really feel the energy. The festival is really raw, free and wild, and people are really in a good mood, so I think it will be very different from other festivals.”
Your friend Slash from Guns N’ Roses is here. Do you think we’ll see a collaboration on stage this weekend?
T: “I wish! I met him when we were playing Rock In Rio. He’s a really nice guy. We love Guns N’ Roses. Also, they’re playing tonight, so we’re ready!” “
V: “Thomas would cry.”
Maybe you could meet Axl Rose today and finish the set?
V: “When Damiano [David, frontman] too tired we can say, “Axl, give us a hand!”
Who else would you like to see while you’re here?
V: “Lana Del Rey. We met her at the Gucci party. Just briefly, but she was really cool.”
Maybe it’s a future collaboration?
V: “I hope! [empieza a cantar ‘Hands on your knees…’ de ‘Peppers’]“.
Speaking of teaming up with Thomas, we saw on Instagram that you’re working with Jordan Fish from Bring Me The Horizon…
You: “Yeah, that’s right. He’s a super nice guy. We like to do a shoot together. It was fun and super cool. We did it here in London. It was just improv. We met at the BRIT Awards and just it was fun together.”
And how is the progress with the new Måneskin music?
V: “We’re doing nice things. You’ll have to wait.”
D: “Give us some time. The last one didn’t come out until January.”
Has fame changed your approach to composing music?
V: “Probably a little, I’d say. Of course more ideas and opinions come to you.” [dirigidas a ti], but we try not to think about it when we write. If you put too many things in your head, you lose the natural part.” Of course, it has to change because we have evolved and we are growing. We are still very young and when we started there was not we’re only 16 years old. always learn something new from tours and artists you know. Improve the way you write and create.”
Damiano, when you’re on stage and you feel the electricity running through you, do you feel like writing a song to blow that stadium to pieces?
D: ” For me, it’s more about the performance itself. I try everything I put into it, every time. When we write music and we feel that we are writing something that will be particularly good live, We always try to focus a little more on it to create some moments that could work live. When we prepare the set list for concerts, we always try to include some more instrumental moments and some to create interactions with the audience.”
Damiano, has being an international rock icon changed your way of seeing the world and composing music?
D: “Actually, the more people listen to us, the more validated I feel to say all the bullshit that crosses my mind… so keep listening guys! If you want more bullshit, I have a huge bag .”
What does the rest of 2023 hold for Måneskin?
V: “Well, we’re going on a huge tour from September to December across the US, Australia, Japan, Latin America and Europe, so we’re very excited. This summer, hopefully, we’ll be in there to enjoy a little holiday after our stadium shows.” Italy. Then we will see. Maybe a little rest, and then we can go out again.”
