Why did you decide to name the band Aftertaste?
Aftertaste is like the last song you listen to when you leave from your home and the song is stuck in your head throughout the day. That's what our music is like.

Did you get third time lucky?
We did play in the regional finals for the last two years and concentrated a lot on putting up a show but we didn't qualify. This time, we thought we will just forget the competition and have a good time. And it worked!

What is your music like?
Our music is like a mashup between Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Rage Against The Machine, who are also our inspiration.
