C: Mainly it is pop music.
CH.89: Where do you draw your inspiration from?
C: Moments we share together in the weight room or around a ping pong table. Usually it’s under the trees, so we can get inspired by the nature. Power to the Otters!
CH.89: What made you all want to start a band and how did you come up with the band name?
C: Initially this project was born from another band called Holstenwall. We changed a little bit our formula by including two new members to our team. Now it’s been a 3 year long adventure. The band’s name comes from an impression we had looking at a picture we took in the french country side that looked like the rain forest. Caboco are forest dwellers and we changed it to Cabuco.
CH.89: Can you talk a little bit about what your creative thought process is like when starting a new album?
C: When we are starting a new record, we experiment things at rehearsal with no plans in mind. We spend years in a cave remote from civilization. Working on the songs separately, we develop some ideas, a thread pops out and this will give coherence to the record.
CH.89: What would you want people/ the listener to take from your music?
C: Groove, dance and fun. And a pack of mint.
C: We don’t have any particular method, we like to surprise ourselves (when an otter comes up from the drums for instance).
CH.89: What is one major lesson you’ve learned as an artist?
C: When the seagulls follow the trawler, it’s because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea.

C: Less wires hanging, less stuff on the stage, it’s a real pain.
CH.89: Do you think being an artist allows you to view the world differently from those who don’t follow creative paths?
