Here in Barcelona?
That was along the Costa Brava, a little further north. We used to go out to sea there and sail into all the little coves. It’s the most beautiful place in the world, if you ask me. And then, after a day like that, when you shower and put on some fresh clothes and go out to dinner, that’s a perfect summer.
Since we’re on the subject of clothes, how would you describe your style?
I think it’s a combination of casual and chic. I love textures and fabrics that fit organically, plus I wear a lot of vintage, just slightly oversized.
Could you have been interested in studying fashion design?
No, fashion design is something completely different, and I wouldn’t have been good at it. At university, there were a lot of people who studied fashion design and then went into the field. At the time, I always found it very demanding in terms of craftsmanship. It’s not enough just to cut the pattern, it also has to fit properly. Product design was more suitable for me.
People associate your music with summer and good cheer. Is that a cliché?
Especially in non-Spanish speaking countries, people associate my music with summer. Because they might be remembering a vacation in Mallorca, which is certainly a nice thing. You can kind of end up being pigeonholed a bit like that. Though I don’t think that’s so bad. I want to write songs with a positive message. I love making people happy with my music. I often get messages from fans telling me what they have done while listening to my music, how it made them meet new friends, that they got married to a song of mine, or that my music helped them get through an illness.
