Dirty Boots with Borderline Symphony - An Interview

Luca Pollioni é Borderline Symphony, este suíço mandou um ep bacanão no começo do ano passado que passou meio despercebido pelo TBTCI, mas eis chegada a hora.

É uma salada de influências, as vezes soa como guitar bands, as vezes moderno, e o resultado acaba agradando.

Tipico para ouvir bem alto dando fazendo uma session com um carrinho, despretensioso e altamente agradável.

***** Interview with Borderline Symphony *****

Q. When did Borderline Symphony start, tell us about the history...
A. About 2010. It was a duo at the time (2012) when the debut album came out. Then, until 2014 and with EP1, it was a solo project. Only now we start to play as a four-piece.

A. Too difficult. Really, I'm sorry!

Q. How do you feel playing live?
A. I feel like an ape in a zoo. I prefer rehearsing and recording.

Q. How do you describe Borderline Symphony´s sounds?
A. Warm. Like the Australian desert. And they are flexible and spinning. They make one feel cozy and dizzy.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs?
A. Since I've recorded them by myself until now, it has been overdubbing and overdubbing. Checking lines out, record them and then delete them again:-).

A. Tame Impala, The Besnard Lakes, Arcade Fire

Q: Which bands would you love to make a cover version of?
