Nocturne with Waterfalls - An Interview

Os mexicanos do Waterfalls fazem conexões com expoentes do pós punk em várias partes do mundo, elementos que os russos do Motorama utilizam, os suecos do Marionettes, entre outras belas bandas que resgatam o pós punk melódico dos 80´s, sempre com elegância, e sofisticação.

Sein Dasein é o debute do Waterfalls lançado no ano passado e emite aquele frescor nostálgico sempre com o baixo em primeiro plano, riffs rápidos e cortantes, sensações melancólicas saindo pelos poros das 8 belas canções do álbum.

Para fãs de Chameleons, Comsat Angels e afins.

***** Interview with Waterfalls *****

Q. When did Waterfalls started, tell us about the history...
Started in 2012 , but a year later the project formally begins .Before waterfalls , we had other projects bands , but we were not satisfied with them .

So after a while we risk'' leaving our respective projects, to create something different in the environment of the local music. in the begining'' it was difficult as we had several member changes , we were rehearsing for a year without drums or bass . This served us to experiment with different things. From cancel almost completely distortion guitars and change for reverb also include keyboards.

It was all trial and error and that led us to create the basic sound of the band. In 2013 almost one year after experiencing. Our first performance was at a local bar, it was a really cool experience because we did not expect that the bar was completely full. if something has waterfalls is chemistry between the members maybe we are not the best musicians but always work together and take risks in order to create something special.

Q: Who are your influences?
Our music is inspired by the 80's post punk shoegazing . bands like the smiths , the cure , joy division and contemporary bands like motorama , wild nothing , beach fossils , craft spells , DIIV .

In mexico is almost nonexistent this type of music , there are few bands who risk in this type of genre.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
Unknow pleasures (joy division),
Nocturne- Wild nothing,
Clash the truth-beach fossils,
all albums of craft spells,
universe made of darkneess- tesla boy.
and one more, Casus Belli-Candy Colors. ---------

Q. How do you feel playing live?
Drunk, its a joke. we are in tune with people , feels very cool part of the people we are going to see friends and friends of friends, and we try to have a connection with all living together and having a good time .

Most of our songs were made very difficult stages of our life and we want the public to feel identified and distracted a bit of everything bad.

Q. How do you describe Waterfalls sounds?
Waterfalls is a collection of contrasts , ranging from the dark to the most brilliant. but the real question is how people define us.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
It is a long process , because each member of the band have a job or are studying . We try to at least dedicate to every song about 3 months to 1 hour sessions a week , this is because they do not have much time.

But when we are in the studio is very satisfying indeed less time in the studio than perfecting the song to be recorded .curiosly the time we spend in the studio is less than the time composing and perfectioning every single song.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
Beach fossils, DIIV, Craft Spells, Tesla boy, Wild nothing, Motorama, Mac demarco, minks, tesla boy, slowdive, Hawaiian gremlins, technicolor fabrics, LUH (lost under heaven), Angel olse, Kurt vile and the violators, Big troubles, Candy colors, hexagrams, Sonar, wu lyf, anoraak.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
Thats a difficult question, maybe ... joy divison, slowdive, motorama or hawaiian gremlins

Q: What´s the plans for future....
in 8 months we plan to introduce a new ep, maybe in november.and now we are in the composition of the songs. our goal is to promote us and let people know our music and perhaps a presentation on "vive latino" jaja

@. Any parting words?
Thanks Renato for you time and we are in touch.
