Turn Up The Cake

Autoerotique Interview on Much Music for New Music Live!

Tim Gauthier

The Autoerotique duo visited Canada’s Much Music for New Music Live yesterday (June 1) for an exclusive interview. They discussed “cakesplosions,” the air cannons used in their viral hit video “Turn Up the Volume,” and how Toronto’s music scene has influenced their music.

The directors of the music video, who were in the crowd, were quoted by the host as saying “we wanted to represent the feeling you get listening to their music.” When asked to define their music, Keith, speaking on behalf of the group, stated, “There is no way to define us, I have no answer,” but when pressed for a one phrase definition, he replied, “sexual energy.” In response, the women in the crowd exploded much like the cake’s in their video.
