Cigarette in Your Bed with Wildhoney - An Interview

Uma das mais promissoras bandas surgidas no ano passado com o ep Seventeen Forever, debuta agora com seu álbum cheio Sllep Through It que desponta apesar da precocidade do início ainda deste 2015 que promete, como um dos já belíssimos discos lançados no ano.

Uma deliciosa viagem adentrando os caminhos escancarados nos 90´s pelas guitar bands, shoegazers, dreampoppers e todas as possibilidades que aqueles meninos que hoje são referência pra muita gente.

O Wildhoney seduz em sua estreia, vocais cândidos, melodias pegajosas e envolventes, guitarras estridentes em alguns momentos, já em outros hipnóticas e delirantes, um disco daqueles de se ouvir repetidamente por dias.

Numa era que tudo é consumido extremamente rapidamente, o Wildhoney nos brinda com Sleep Through It que tem aquele apelo, aquele charme de se ficar idolatrando durante horas, dias e vai lá saber durante quanto tempo, um álbum sublime.

***** Interview with Wildhoney *****

Q. When did Wildhoney started, tell us about the history...
Wildhoney formed in late 2011, aiming to write pop songs with the energy and malcontent of hardcore punk, but without its entrenched masculinity.

Q: Who are your influences?
Sonically we are influenced by Cocteau Twins,The Wake, Broadcast, Field Mice, Joy Division, Blur, Neu, Medicine, Brian Eno, The Crystals, The Tammys and The Cardigans.

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
This will just reflect my personal taste
1. Blur - 13
2. Fiona Apple - When The Pawn
3. My Blood Valentine - You Made Me Realise
4. Bonnie Prince Billy - Master and Everyone
5. Cocteau Twins - Heaven or Las Vegas

Q. How do you feel playing live?
Just always trying to let go, and get lost in the music for that 25 minutes. Shutting everything else out.

Q. How do you describe Wildhoney sounds?
Loud pop music, that is a refection of our collective anxiety.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs?
Recording is a stressful thing when you are doing the basic tracking, but mostly we record live, then add layers later, then finish with vocals. My favorite part is mixing, where everything starts to come together, you can mess with effects, panning, phasing....that to me is where its really interesting and gets very artistic.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended
Romantic States, Boy Spit, Expert Alterations, Smoke Bellow, Crimson Wave, Big Hush, Wume, Bummed, Funeral Advantage, Katherine.

Q: Which bands would you love to make a cover version of?
1. The Cardigans - Rise and Shine
2. Cocteau Twins - In Our Angelhood
3. The Field Mice - If You Need Someone
4. The Tammy's - Egyptian Shumba
5. Discharge - Drunk With Power

Q: What´s the plan for the future....
Recording a new EP with Gary Olson in NYC, he has recorded Literature, Crystal Stilts, Frankie Rose and Ladybug Transistor. Full US tour in May/June and hopefully Europe in the Fall, then LP2.

Q. Any parting words?
LP "Sleep Through It" out on Deranged Records/Forward Records Jan 20th! Listen to Ann Peebles LP I Can't Stan The Rain, it rules!
