Share this

What is your single about?

A-Ha is about one of those nights where the stars align and for no apparent reason everything goes your way. The universe is smiling at you, everyone is laughing at all of your jokes and your dance moves are the best on the floor. A-ha, you just had the best night ever.

Where did you record this single, and who helped you out?

We wrote and recorded A-Ha ourselves in our studio in Mt Maunganui. Our friend Leroy Clampitt (Taste Nasa) helped produce the song in its final stages. It was mixed in LA by Billy Bush and mastered in New York by Sterling Sound.

Have you got a video out, if so what is the theme/story behind the video?

The A-Ha video follows the story of a boy and girl who meet one night out in New York City, it totally encapsulates the vibe of A-ha. The night starts simple and fun and turns into an evening of ‘best-night-ever’ proportions, with an epic climatic ending at the coney island theme park. When was the last time your night ended on a ferris wheel?

Who’s in your band?

PleasePlease is Ryan Mulligan and Antony Jeffares. Ryan writes the music and produces the tracks and Ants does vocals and guitar.
