Daft Punk Open Up About The "Convenience" Of Wearing Their Masks - Audio

16 May 2013, 16:38

The French duo speak exclusively to Capital FM about being able to enjoy a "regular life" away from the limelight.

Daft Punk have confessed that their masks are "really convenient" because it allows them to live a "regular life" as well as enjoy the "entertaining spectacle" that their "alter egos" allow them.

The DJ duo of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo spoke with Capital FM's Andi Durrant about being able to go under the radar thanks to their on-stage attire during a special interview, which will be broadcast this Sunday (19th May) from 9pm.

"It's really convenient," declared Thomas. "It makes us [able] to kind of keep some distance you know."

He continued: "We just came to the radio interview on the subway like that on the subway. It's great to be able to have a regular life and at the same time having created this alter-ego and be able to present somehow an entertaining spectacle with a certain showmanship around it.

"But keeping some sort of down to earth lifestyle is good." 

As well an exclusive interview with the duo, Capital's Human After All show will features songs from Daft Punk's new album 'Random Access Memories', as well as the chance to hear some of their classic hits.

'Random Access Memories' is released on Monday 20th May.

The record also features Vodafone Big Top 40 number one 'Get Lucky', which sees the stars team-up with Pharrell Williams.
