An exclusive competition, just for you.

2nd of July 2015, Dot SE played their second gig at a festival in Halmstad today, to say I'm proud is an understatement.

The setlist they put together was a perfect combination of the songs that give you goosebumps and those that make you wanna get up and sing with them ;D

They sang:

- Me and My Broken Heart
- See You Again
- Dark Horse
- Love Me Like You Do
- She Looks So Perfect

From what I've seen, the guys look like they had a blast, and they look in their element - up on the stage, singing and performing :D You can check one of their wonderful fans vlogg of the day (it is in Swedish) but there are many clips of them in there, so be sure to check it out! The clips of the guys performing are between 3:10 - 6:19 :)

After the gig they had a type of meet and greet with the fans - and this is where they were selling their limited edition t-shirts that they had designed themselves. Fans had the chance to buy one and get it hand signed by them all. Here are a couple of fans and the guys, don't they all look so happy :D

Now, as the title says, there is an exclusive competition on the blog. I have a few autographs of Dot SE.. AND in addition, YOU have an exclusive chance to win a limited edition hand SIGNED t-shirt from Dot SE! Below there will be details on how to win. But first, I have to say a huge thank you to Fanny Elmgren for arranging everything, you are awesome! And even more so, the majority of pictures in the blog are taken by her as well, so a big, big THANK YOU to you! :D

So how to win the t-shirt or an autograph?!

- Share, Like and comment on your favourite cover by Dot SE, Adam or Sam
 - Finally, you must be following us all on twitter (if that's the social media where you will share the post)

I don't know when the winner will be picked, maybe Dot SE can decide? - stay tuned for that too, hahah

I hope you are happy to read this post and more so, I hope all of you readers take part! This competition is exclusive, just for you.

Other than preparing and rehearsing for the gig today, the guys have been busy enjoying the good weather, working, and preparing for what's to come next in the Dot SE chapter ;)

Did someone say Dot SE doing a live show? ;)

Man, it really does feel good to blog once in a while :)

This post is actually super exciting for me to write, since, well, have you read the title?! ;)

If you didn't know already, Dot SE are going to be playing at a festival in Halmstad, Sweden. The festival is known as "Gullbranna Festivalen"

The guys will be playing there on the 2nd of July at 13:45.

This is the second show that Dot SE are going to be playing live. They've already had rehearsals in Jonkoping when Johan came for the weekend, but I guess in their homes, it's rehearsal everyday when you sing all the time anyway :D lelele

I know that there are a lot of people out there who would love the opportunity to see the guys live, but, don't worry, you will see a lot more of them soon! I know for a fact, the guys are working super duper hard behind the scenes at the moment, to be continued in summer :) so keep a look out

Today, Adam announced on twitter that they will be selling limited edition t-shirts at the festival. If you're going to be there, make sure you get one! ;)

And if you're not going to be there, well, I guess the fact that you could get a signed autograph by the guys should make up for it? ;)
That's right, I have lots of autographs from Adam, Sam and a few from Johan, all ready to be given away :D

The next winner will be chosen tomorrow, because I'm going to go to the post office on Wednesday (24th of June), so be sure to tag me and a Dot SE member with your favourite post as soon as you can :D

Please note, I no longer have the autograph that has Simon pictured, that was sent to the previous winner. 

A quick update on what the guys are up to at the moment, Sam has taken a holiday to Turkey :D Johan is at his home, working, and forever posting pictures on instagram of food xD and Adam, well, he works nights, so I guess he's busy with work.

Thank you for reading as always, I was going to link a Dot SE cover in this post, but tomorrow is 3 years since Westlife split, and well, you should know that they are my favourite. So I linked the worlds best, singing one of my favourite songs by them, have a great night

So don't think it's in the past, these kinda wounds they last and they last.

It June already!! We're halfway through the year already, time flies

Since the last update, I spent the majority of May in Jonkoping, and came back to my home in the UK, this week. It was so incredibly good to be there

I'm writing this post today, well, because, guess who released a new cover? ;)

Oh yes, that's right, Dot SE! .. Well doh xD this blog is about them after all :P

The song they covered this time is Bad Blood by Taylor Swift

At the beginning they were unsure of if they were going to have a twitcam, but Adam and Sam made some time for you guys!

During the twitcam they spoke about the cover, the recording and all that good stuff.

This time, the guys have completely produced the backing track themselves - the cover of Bad Blood they have done, is not the rap version. They started editing everything at 9pm yesterday and didn't finish till 4am.

They spoke a little about the video, they recorded most of it on Johan's iPhone, as you can see in it, they didn't have long, because Johan had to go back to his home, because he had work. But, simple is good, its nice to strip everything back sometimes

During the twitcam Adam whipped his French skills out, after being asked if he can speak French. I have to say, I reckon this could be the first twitcam Sam didn't say Pero xD

The guys were answering a few questions during the twitcam amongst the usual banter between them both

What do you do in your free time (or something like that :P)

Sam - I play football, I like to party, I'm interested in girls, I like watching movies, I like to exercise and I like to eat.
Adam agreed to pretty much everything Sam said and he added the few things I like playing video games (#Videogamenerd ;D ), I like to hangout with friends, I like to party too.

As you can see, they have a lot of common interests :)
And then, well, the twitcam became, well maybe not so child friendly ;) hahaha

Tonight the guys have plans to watch the Champions League final tonight, Sam might stay with Adam and friends at Adam's place, or he may join his football team. He's then gonna eat food and go to party at the club! :)

Adam is staying in with friends at his place and will be watching the football, playing video games, and just having a good time :)

The guys put a few hints out that in Summer there focus is going to be on their Youtube channel, so keep an eye out and don't forget to subscribe to them, you don't want to miss it ;) They have a few original songs recorded too, so yeah, you get my point, SUBSCRIBE :D

Here is the new cover :D

Thank you for reading as always :)

Did you notice any changes on the blog? ;)

Voices tell me I should carry on.

Finally, another update!

Since the last one, Dot SE gathered in Stockholm to go to the annual event in Sweden known as Guldtuben.

The guys were in Stockholm from the 1st of  May till the 3rd of May

I'm sure they had a great weekend there, from the photo's it looks like they did!

They graced the red carpet looking quite dapper may I just add ;) 

Adam also took a break from all social media due to personal circumstances. I'm sure each and everyone of you hoped he is okay. And I'm sure that you're all there for him. But, his comeback to social media was with a cover, one of my all time favourites by the legendary Backstreet Boys, called Incomplete. 

The cover was done with Sam and man, I have to say, for me, it comes in as one of the best covers they've done, in every way. Sometimes, when you end up in situations music and the people that you are surrounded by, that care for you are the ones that bring you up. The lyrics paired with the video they have filmed are literally, genius. It's so emotionally raw that even from behind the computer screen, you can feel the pain, and it hurts. I can't put it into words, but lets just say, I felt a shiver down my spine.

Check out the video below 

And to conclude, a kick start to summer for Sam and Johan is that they have gone to Rhodes. They left today and there plan is to relax and write original songs, perfect right? - Sun, drinks and creativity. 

Thank you for reading as always, you're wonderful :) - and don't forget to share and tag me and a Dot SE member with your favourite post, you could get their autograph ;) 

Also, don't forget to check out my personal blog, I'm sure you'll like reading this post, after all, it relates, click here to read.

Love Me Like You Do

Well hello wonderful readers, it's been so long!! ..Can I even say Happy New Year now? :P Anyway, as they say, better late than never, right ;)

Today, I'm bringing you a new post to update you on what Dot SE have been up to and an exclusive chance to get their autographs that are hand signed (I asked them to do it when I met them) Stay tuned, it's going to be good!

So firstly, what have Dot SE been up to? I have a long list, so listen up :D

The second week into the year, the guys were in Jonkoping and they recorded and released a cover by Mr Probz called Nothing Really Matters. I really like the video for this cover, striping the video back really sets the scene with the snow.

 The on the 23rd of January, the guys met up in Stockholm! They signed a contract with Splay. Splay is the biggest youtube network in Sweden and they are basically going to help promote Dot SE and get them more known in Sweden. And not only did Dot SE get signed with Splay, so did Adam! He's been working so hard and making time in his day to film lots of covers and random, but interesting videos. Talking about the video's, you must watch his cover of Untitled, I already love the song, and his cover is incredible. I love how he's incorporated different harmonies, it gives me goosebumps everytime I listen to it, specially the long note at the end.

It was also Adam's 27th birthday on the 2nd March! I'm sure he had a great birthday ;) I can't believe its already been 1 year since we met up, crazy how time flies! Click here to read the post from last year on his birthday.

And finally, just four days ago, the guys released a cover of Love Me Like You Do by Ellie Goulding! The guys absolutely love this cover, they put lots and lots of hard work into it, like they do with all of their covers.

Other than working on music, the guys had an interview with a swedish newspaper, click here to read it (it is in swedish)

There are talks at the moment about the guys wanting to release their first original single this summer :D

Lastly! I'm sure this is the part you fans are going to love! You have an exclusive chance to get the guys autograph :D They are all hand signed by them, you can choose from any of the autographs below. It's so simple to enter, all you have to do is share any post from this blog on any form of social media, tag a member of the band or the band account, tag me as well (my social media links can be found here) The closing date is the 9th of April and I will post the autograph to the winner on the 10th of April! There could be more than one winner too ;)
*Please only tag us once in a day on any form of social media*

Thank you so much for reading as always and good luck :)

Love Farhaana
