2013 - “I was listening a lot to Metallica and after that I listened to Nirvana and The Smashing Pumpkins – I was really into them. The first song I wrote was kind of Nirvana style. And then I discovered Hendrix, at the age of 11, 12. Then came Led Zeppelin, The Doors and all that stuff – and now I'm listening to Leon Russell! No, sorry, at the moment Lynyrd Skynyrd,”

2013 -" We started with that psychedelic blues rock.When I listen to the album Strange Fruits and Undiscovered Plants, for example , I do not think it sounds so cool. Then we went more to the second album with the second album. What more dark melodies or whatever you call it, a more dark atmosphere. Then came the latest album ' DeWolff IV' , a rock opera. We were very proud of it. That was actually where we started on Orchards / Lupine but now it's worked out much further. We did the best and the best we could do with it.But now, the last couple of months we have all gone back to listening to rock 'n roll songs, southern rock and Neil Young for example.

Tend to do extended jams on stage

Supported Deep Purple, Luka: Crazy! It was in a big ice hockey hall. There were six to seven thousand people like that. It was the biggest hall we ever played in. Roger Glover, the bass player of Deep Purple, stood at the edge of the stage and watched. After that, he said, "Wow, I'm a fan." - SOURCE - Roger Glover - Deep Purple/Rainbow

Songs the band like playing live ‘Love Dimension’, Tired of Loving You’

Songwriting - Pablo: We prefer to write our songs in the studio. They arise during our jam sessions and rehearsals.
