***** Interview with April Sun *****

Q. When did April Sun started, tell us about the history...
It's all started with a guitar and a laptop in my room. I then moved to Moscow where I met a friend of mine Sorokin who is much better at playing guitar. We did some tunes together and the band was started.

Q: Who are your influences?
Personalities. Those who stand on their own and keep being themselves. Iggy Pop is like my hero. Anton Newcombe is a great inspiration. Singapore Sling and BRMC they nail it. Also brit rock from the 90's - 00's era influenced me a lot.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
I would go with
1. The Beatles - Revolver
2. Sex Pistols - Never Mind The Bollocks
3. Serge Gainsbourg - Best Of Gainsbourg Comme Un Boomerang
4. The Doors - The Doors
5. Depeche Mode - Ultra

Q. How do you feel playing live?
Amazing. Thats the most comfortable thing for me.

Q. How do you describe April Sun sounds?
Enveloping, tribal. A bit dark and charming.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
Most of the songs I've done by myself in my kitchen. Some others we made together with Sorokin in his flat. The tune just comes in my mind. Sometimes I just play a guitar till I get 'into it' and catch the vibe. When we do music together it always starts with jamming.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
Well, Im not good in finding new bands. Ty Segall are cool. That guy Dirty Beaches did something very original. But Im not sure he is still doing music under this name. I also like Tame Impala, especially their first album. Would they fit into the 'new' category?

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
No plans right now.

Q: What´s the plans for future....
To get o stage.

Q: Any parting words?
Remember the name April Sun - one day this would appear on tops.
