Gemeliers is a Spanish musical duo formed by Jesús and Daniel Oviedo Morilla originally from Mairena del Aljarafe, Seville. Their popularity began to grow after their appearance on the television show “The Voice Kids” in 2014. The music duo has released five studio albums in recent years, Stereo being the most recent one released in 2018. Gemeliers has also collaborated with the Latin pop girl group Ventino.
- How would you define your dressing style?
Jesús and Daniel: It has been very progressive, it is also true that age accompanies it, we now have a very different style, because we wanted to mark equality but differentiated because we no longer do the style of being twins. But now we wear black, we are very “all black”, sometimes we use gray colors, yet right now we wear all black. My brother uses clothes a little tighter I use looser clothes.
- Do you have a stylist who makes you dress in fashion?
Jesús and Daniel: It depends, I think Daniel is my stylist and I (Jesús) am Daniel’s stylist because there are many clothes that don’t look good on me, but Daniel does. My best stylist is my brother and vice versa. Sometimes my brother tells me “I’m going to wear it” and he tells me, no, but I (Daniel) am a little more daring, my brother is a little more traditional, but with that elegant rogue touch.

- What is your primary influence in order to have this dressing style?
Jesús and Daniel: I think that in the times we are living in, we recycle from a lot of different videos, photos, and artists. For me (Jesús), Justin Bieber has been my reference at the lifestyle level and everything that goes with it. I (Daniel) am more like I wake up, I see what I like and I put it on, right now I don’t have any references. When I was little my reference was Harry Styles, I loved his skinny pants, but today I don’t have one. Maluma maybe, he is very top and he dresses very well, Maluma fascinates me right now.

- Which type of brands do you like the most?
Jesús and Daniel: Which brands do we like? Prada, Dolce & Gabbana and Amancio Ortega. Seems dumb, but Amancio Ortega is really good. There was a time when we dressed a lot with Zadig & Voltaire. There was also a time when we were practically living in Italy and everything was Richmond, they are the kings of fashion. I can tell you the typical brands like Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Versace… But for me, it is not necessary to have big brands to dress well. Anyone can have those kinds of brands nowadays.
- If you had to change something about each of your styles, what would it be?
Jesús and Daniel: I (Daniel) for example would give my brother more tattoos, a little more rogue. What I (Jesus) would change for my brother is that he doesn’t change so much, my brother is changing all the time, wanting to innovate, and make a difference, I love it, but don’t change so fast.
- Your last studio album was Stereo, do you have plans on releasing another album?
Jesús and Daniel: We have a lot of projects, we could make two albums with the songs we have. What happens is that inthis industry everything is a bit complicated, we are looking for a future career, a long-term career, a career that is progressive, but beautiful. Justin Bieber is a very easy case for us which is why he is my brother’s reference. Justin Bieber goes through a very bombastic adolescence and there is a process between the child, the youth, and the adults. Right now we find ourselves a bit in between, between youth and adulthood. Our project is not like that of any other artist, practically all of Spain already knows us. It is very important to be in good company and currently, the question that eats our minds is: with whom do we go hand in hand? Because we have already gone through several unpleasant events on a musical level. Better alone than in bad company, but there are many projects and a lot of music, and many collaborations.
- Do you have in mind to go on tour soon?
Jesús and Daniel: Of course, in the beginning, it is true that we like to focus on everything being perfect at the composition level. But obviously, we are live artists, there are many types of artists, in our case, Gemeliers are live artists, ticket artists, being in front of the public, we are not so much streaming artists, which is also very good, but we like to get on the stage and obviously, you can’t miss a tour, it’s what we’ve been doing for many years and it’s what Gemeliers stands out for, live shows.
- You had collaborations with artists like Ventino. Who else would you like to collaborate with?
Jesús and Daniel: Right now I can tell you two, Mau Ricky and Cali and El Dandee. Jesús and I used to sing their songs since we were little, they are a perfect duo for us. I really like Danny Ocean and I’m going to say, Ana Mena. When we were in our strong moment, that collaboration didn’t come out, but we’ve been close friends since we were very little. The same thing happens to us with Abraham Mateo, we are lifelong friends and we have shared so much that we have forgotten the professional and we focus more on the personal. Those kinds of obvious collaborations are the most complicated.
- Do Gemeliers have an exercise routine?
Jesús and Daniel: Right now I don’t have any exercise right now because I’ve also gained a lot of weight, but before if we had a routine, we eat very healthily because we both cook very well and we love cooking, with the food issue we are doing very well. Yes, it is true that we have to do more exercise, but we live a normal life, and we do not usually get up early. We are rather nocturnal, we sleep during the day and go out at night, but as exercise, we both suffer a lot from anxiety and we cannot do any type of cardiac sport. The exercise we are focused on is the mental one because anxiety is something that eats you up, we began to suffer from anxiety at the age of 16.
- What would you say to Daniel and Jesús from 10 years ago?
Jesús and Daniel: I would tell them not to trust anyone other than their father or mother, and not to give so much importance to things because that is not living. If I had known what I was going to experience in my musical career, I would never have dedicated myself to music, ever. Because in the end you pursue your dream and love what you do, but there are people who do not think the same as you, “loving something is not the same as wanting something” it is totally different, but I would not say anything to my past because, otherwise, today I would not be here, and nobody is perfect, I would not say anything to my past because you have to know how to win and lose. I wouldn’t change anything that I’m living because that’s how it had to be.
