1. How did you choose the name for your band? Was it an easy process? Were there any arguments between band members?
A band-naming process is usually very stupid, yet intense. Everyone has a hundred of ideas - each of them is the best, but only for the inventor. We were sitting in a room full of red hatchings on the wall - at some point someone shouted (in Polish of course): "This isn't going anywhere! We could as well name ourselves: Red Hatchings!" We translated it into English, changed Red into Scarlet and... voila!

2. Tell us in one word why you create music?
In one word? - Insanity. We could be bankers, lawyers, make a lot of money, instead we spend hundreds of hours in moist basements, stinky clubs, not getting paid, and we love every minute of it.

3. What is your biggest achievement of 2011 as a band or artist?
Our baby came out to this world - EP "InHuman Race" - and the music from it actually attracts people. We know it's just a beginning.

4. Is there a story behind your song "Only Way To Die"?
The song is about freedom or lack of it. We are being told that we are free - our gods (God, Allah, Buddah, whatever) say that, our governments say that - but is it really true? It seems to me, that freedom is just the same as any other product on this planet - for money you can buy more and more of it. Being poor creates boundries - and how does freedom with boudries work?

5. What do you think of episode 100? Which of the other featured songs do you like the most?
We're listening to it, as I write the answers, and must admit, that r'n'r world is full of great bands - too bad, that people prefer new Gaga, or Rihanna than any of these bands in this episode.
