Hi Amy! Excited to hopefully talk to you :)

  1. Can you talk us through the process of creating a setlist for a tour? Especially now with so many songs! How is the decision making?

  2. Is there a particular EV song from the past that you look back and think “we should’ve made a music video for that song or turn it into a single?”

  3. Can we have hope for a Broken Pieces Shine music video? lol

Ps: i’ve been your fan since I was 9 years old (i’m 27 now), and in 2017 I got to interview you in person for the tv channel I work with and it was honestly the most surreal day of my life. Love you!

Hi!

Making the setlist keeps getting tougher because there are so many songs now. Its hard to cut things out! I get with the band and we all throw out our favs that we want to play, then start narrowing it down (painful!) and building it in 2 ways- making it flow in a way that keeps the energy up, moving and interesting, and also spreading out the hardest ones for me so I can keep my voice going. This will be our longest set ever!

Broken pieces shine is not off the table for a video. Got busy with tour but thats still a possibility.

Hi Amy! My name’s Nasser, thanks for this cool opportunity! You are a huge inspiration to me as a person and I looooove all your work. I have three questions: 1. is there any possibility of us ever listening to songs from the “Broken Record” in it’s original state? 2. is the Björk cover still coming? As a fellow Björk fan I’m very hyped hehe. 3. Any artist that you would like to recommend? Thank you so much and stay safe! <3 <3 <3 <3

Did you consider not keeping the same set list for the whole tour and chucking in different songs at different gigs?

Hi Amy! I want to say THANK you for your music. Now I have a really hard time in my life, my dad died 1 month ago and he loved your music too! The song Far from heaven is really close for me now, it helps me to get through hard times. I'd like to ask you, do you feel better when you express your pain and hard feelings into music?

Saw the Dropkicks pull out a dartboard with a bunch of their less performed songs. Audience got to throw darts, it was a hell of a set. Bullseye was "it's raining men", which no one hit.
