Satin Safe with Human Colonies - An Interview

Calvary é o debute dos italianos do Human Colonies, e o frescor dos 90´s infesta o disco inteiro dos caras.

Conexões com Chapterhouse, Yo La Tengo e outros intocáveis formam o ponto de partida para que o Human Colonies desfie sua guitarras e melodias barulhentas mas nunca estridentes.

Um disco que impregna na cabeça e que precisa ser degustado em alto e bom som.

***** Interview with Human Colonies *****

Q. When did Human Colonies started, tell us about the history...
The band started in April 2013, when me, Giuseppe (voice/guitar) met Roman (guitar). Hence several months later we met Davide (drums) and Sara (bass).

Q: Who are your influences?
We all come from different influences so it would be rather hard to tell shortly. Obviously dream-pop and shoegaze scene influenced us (Ride, Slowdive, Chapterhouse, The Jesus And Mary Chain) as our sound approached that genres, but lots of other artists / bands too, from Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd to Yo La Tengo and Sonic Youth.

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
My Bloody Valentine – Loveless
Nirvana – In Utero
Wire – 154 ...
And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead – Source tags & Codes
Former Ghosts - Fleurs

Q. How do you feel playing live?
It’s always an unforgettable experience!

Q. How do you describe Human Colonies sounds?
Spatial, intimate. Whole. We moved from the noisy and buzzy sound of the beginning to more mere and transparent one.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs?
Normally I bring some drafts to the studio and then later we evolve them together .

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
Weekend, DIIV, Motorama, Pinkshinyultrablast, Former Ghosts

Q: What´s the plans for future....
We plan do to some gigs this summer and then perhaps work on some new material. Approach a new sound. We don’t know yet.

Q: Any parting words?
