Interview With LOOKINGDOOR

LOOKINGDOOR is a rock duo of singer-songwriter & guitarist Barnabas Nagy and drummer Daniel Nagy. They started to make music together in 2005 and decided to form a band.

Due to both working day jobs and Barnabas working in the UK for 6 year the band was put on hold. Until now. Their Single, recorded in 2005 got a facelift and re-released in 2016.

Q:When you decide its time to make a new record, is that more exciting or stressful?

Ans: I think it’s always exciting to put out there something new. There’s however, always a little bit of stress involved in making an idea happen.

Q: You write all of your own music; where do you draw inspiration from when you write songs and whats your favorite part about the proccess?

ANS: Many times I just sit down I start to play on the guitar then I make a mistake and from that mistake an idea pops up. That’s how it usually starts. Most of our music is about life and faith in God.


Q: At what age did you start singing?

ANS: I started singing at around 10 when I changed schools and my parents put in the music class.

Q:Who are your inspirations?

Ans: I like the professionalism of Maroon 5, the dymism of Linkin Park, the melody of Nickelback.

Q: If you could perform with anyone, in the future, who would it have to be?

Ans: Hope to perform at the Sziget festival in Budapest with Akos perhaps! He’s a Hungarian rock legend. Internationally, maybe with Nickelback or Linkin Park.

Q:What is your favorite song to sing live?

Ans: Son Of Nothing

Q:When and why did you start playing?

ANS:  Our parents wanted us to play on musical instruments and so we were sent to the local music school to learn. Dany first got saxophone and then clarinet lessons and I got drums and then piano lessons. We then both dropped out but I started to play on my mother’s classical guitar on my own and started to play rock covers. After a couple of years I started to write my own songs.

Q:  How do you handle mistakes during a performance?

Ans: We haven’t had a public performace yet, at the moment we’re still just starting out and focusing on promoting our music in the digital music world. But I can speak of our rehearsals. You make mistakes and you just roll with the punches I guess.

Q:  How often and for how long do you practice?

Ans: We usually rehearse at least once a week and each session is about 2 hours.

Q:  How do you balance your music with other obligations – mate, children, job?

Ans: That’s the hard part. At the moment there’s very little time for music. Dany is a full time elementary school teacher at the local school and I’m a freelance user experience designer and run my small online business on the side. That’s what we want to change with our single “Son Of Nothing”.

Q : What’s the best way to find you online?

Ans : You can visit our band website
