September Ice with Forever Grey - An Interview

Da mesma escola que o Lebanon Hanover vem os estadunidenses do Forever Grey.

Cold wave, pós punk, darkwave atual, sombrio, soturno e deveras sexy.

Como é usual no estilo o baixo vem em primeira instância sempre conduzindo o clima quase sempre angustiante das músicas. September Ice o ep deles é um delírio.

Talvez a grande revelação no estilo depois de Lebanon Hanover e Tropic of Cancer.

***** Interview with Forever Grey *****

Q. When did Forever Grey started, tell us about the history...
A: Kevin and I(Samantha) were roommates a few years ago. We've know each other for years but just started making music this past November. Kevin has been in multiple local bands, and currently has a project called Denim. This is the first band I've been apart of.

Q: Who are your influences?

Q. How do you feel playing live?
A: Live set-up is always difficult, but we enjoy performing. Our main focus is just creating music.

Q. How do you describe Forever Grey sounds?
A: Forever Grey sounds like a cold walk through a dark graveyard. An infinite X-Files marathon on Netflix.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
A: There is pretty much no process. We write, record, and usually post the songs online all in one day. When we have an idea for a song, we don't stop writing it until we feel like it's completely finished.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?

A: Y Control- Yeah Yeah Yeahs, then do a complete scene by scene remake of the music video

Q: What´s the plans for future....
A: Currently Forever Grey would like to keep on creating new music. Maybe release a few splits with some friends' bands. Go on a tour. Maybe OD on some nice drugs in Cuba.

Q: Any parting words?
A: MULDER: times I almost dream I, too, have spent a life the sages' way, And tread once more familiar paths. Perchance I perished in an arrogant self-reliance Ages ago; and in that act, a prayer. For one more chance went up so earnest, so Instinct with better light let in by death, that life was blotted out-not so completely. But scattered wrecks enough of it remain, dim memories, as now, when once more seems the goal in sight again.
