Jonas Brander (Restorm) – Interview (Part 2)

Part 2 of the excellent interview with Jonas from Restorm. Enjoy, and share!.



When did you become interested in music? What was the first album or single you ever purchased?

I became interested in music just when my brain started to work inside my mother’s belly. She often sang to me, that’s why I wanted to stay inside and they had to cut her open to get me. It was really comfortable. Since this day I often became angry and could channel all this emotion with Sonic Youths “Daydream Nation”.

Are you in a band yourself, or have you been in a band in the past? Is there a clip on YouTube or elsewhere we could watch?

The most people working at are playing in bands or have a really strong passion for music. I have various projects. The main project at the moment is a German rap project and is called son kas.

Musical likes and dislikes? Favorite artists?

There is too much good music. My highlights this year have been to see Battles and The National live. If you are searching for some non-famous bands, you should check these here:

If you had to name the song that moves you the most, what would it be? Can you pinpoint the reason why?

No, I cant. Everyday is a new song. But you definitely shouldn’t miss the drinking song.

Is there a song that – to you – captures the spirit of your startup and what you have set out to do? What would it be?

This song has it all: the ideas, the positive groove, the speed, the impulse to change old structures and the bloody fights we sometimes have in our team meetings.
