Tom Lugo é simplesmente uma daquelas pessoas dignas de todo tipo de admiração, e serve de inspiração para qualquer pessoa que acredita em seus sonhos e em si mesmo, é fato que o TBTCI é fã declarado deste cara fenomenal, não somente pelo trabalho a frente do patrimônio chamada Stellarscope bem como seu alter ego o Panophonic, e não contente com tudo isso, Tom resolveu se juntar musicalmente ao lado de sua esposa Jamie e nos brindaram com o ShiShi, um mix de dubstep, new wave, dreampop, darkwave e shoegazer, jogo ganho, a começar por Tom, mas o que impressiona no debut Nick of Time é Jamie, ela literalmente rouba a cena numa interpretação tensa e caótica, desde já uma das músicas do ano.
Logicamente o TBTCI em conjunto com Tom e Jamie armamos uma entrevista para melhor sabermos as intenções do casal, e que casal!!!!
***** Interview with ShiShi *****
How did shishi come to be? Quando surgiu a ideia de montar o shishi?Tom- My goal was to create music with a different approach than what I had done before. The concept was to blend elements of dance music (dubstep, hip hop, etc), indiepop, and shoegaze sounds. Once I had all the compositions written and recorded, I approached my wife, Jamie Lugo, to see if she would be interested in singing on them. I had discussed doing a project together for some time but never came around to it until now.
I chose the name ShiShi because it symbolizes the duality of yin and yan, male and female, heaven and earth. Guardians and protectors of what is housed inside.
Jamie- what tom said
How was the process of recording the first single? Como foi o processo de gravação do primeiro single?
Tom- We had fun recording together, it was Jamie’s first time recording and she did awesome. I let her tell you more about it…
Jamie- I listened to the music and wrote about what it made me feel. Tom re-wrote the lyrics to go with the melody and taught me how to sing it in time. It took a few takes but was pretty easy actually.
What is the inspiration behind the lyrics? Qual a inspiração das letras?
Tom- Jamie wrote the lyrics;)
Quais as influências do Shishi?
Tom- MGMT, Matt and Kim, Screen Vinyl Image, The TingTings, New Order
Jamie- Jem, Dido, life experiences
What are your upcoming plans? Quais os próximos passos ?
Tom- We are working on completing our EP with hopes of releasing it in early fall. We would like to release the EP on vinyl so we’ll need the help of the fans to facilitate the process. If all goes well, we should have a full length release in early winter. Just in time for the holidays… it’ll make a great stocking stuffer…lol
