Vragen van “Den Beir”: Flaws


FLAWS stands steady on shaky knees, with a pounding heart and sharp observations. Words that make you fall flat for a brittle voice that rocks you into a well produced delirium. Like a kick to your guts, like a kiss to your neck. FLAWS takes you to a world of dysfunctional harmonies where no one is safe. The debut single is a product of long nights and early mornings. It was produced by György Barocsai and mastered by Hans Olsson Brookes in the mythical and legendary Svenska Grammofonstudion. FLAWS can’t be labeled. The music is beautiful yet ugly, true yet false. The lyrics naïve yet insightful, unpolished yet sharp as a blade. FLAWS is a human being. FLAWS is real.

His debut managed to blow us away. We interviewed Anton Alvin.

What is your all-time favorite song?

Has anyone ever written ”hmm. That’s a hard one” here?
My answer is Joni Mitchell – ”A Case Of You”. Iv’e listened to it at least once a day since I don’t know how long. The lyrics are stuck like a post it on my heart. Minimalistic perfection, a story with tension and excitement. Beautiful on so many levels.

Which song is perfect for a Road Trip?

I’d say it’s depending on where you are. A couple of years ago I listened a whole lot to Fleetwood Mac all the way through Malaysia and Myanmar, in small and bumpy busses, in the back of trucks and on motorcycles. Trough amazing scenery, amongst beautiful people. I’d say that Everywhere probably could fit good wherever you travel.

To which song do you like to clean?

Workin’ 9 to 5. Because of obvious reason!

What’s the perfect song to wake up with?

Probably The Weight, by The Band. It’s a perfect way to start your day off with a good set of stories!

What’s your favorite artist from your home city?

There’s so many of them. I’d probably say Dofhiort’n. They’re underrated and hip.


Which artist do you think is too underrated and which one is overrated? 

I’m to afraid to take a conflict for the second one. But the most underrated might be Jai Paul. He might also be the least well known, true genius on earth.

If you could be one artist for a day, who would that be?

Queen B! For obvious reasons! She’s amazing. And probably filthy rich.


What’s the best song to make love to? (…to ask someone out?)

Run To The Hills. Or something from Bon Iver.

What’s the most beautiful lyric you’ve ever heard?

“Limit To Your Love”, by James Blake. I think it has something to do with the melancolic vibe. It sums things up for me. It makes me feel.
And then there’s this swedish song, “Come Give Me Love” by Ted Gärdestad. I just think it’s beautiful in the most peculiar, romantic, sad way.

At which place would you love to play a concert?

Coachella seems nice. Probably a bit to happy go lucky for me though.
There’s this really cool theatre not far from where I grew up. I played there with a couple of different bands, I think there was more people on the stage then in the crowd. Would be cool to experience the feeling of the reverse situation.
