After The Gold Rush with Primary Colour - An Interview

Faz um certo tempo que a Suécia nos brinda com excelentes bandas, e o dreampop tem se tornado algo bem característico de lá, sempre belas novidades despontam de lá.

É exatamente o caso do folk sonhador do Primary Colour. Ao escutar suas músicas o frescor e a suavidade são as principais características que vem de imediato a mente. Uma doce sensação de relaxamento toma conta do ouvinte.

Para ficar de olhos e ouvidos atentos.

***** Interview with Primary Colour *****

Q. When did Primary Colour started, tell us about the history...
It sprung out of boredom in my dorm room when I was attending an author school. I had a lot of time on my hands and so I came up with melodies to the texts that I had written. Singing has always been a big part of my life as a member of a choir, but I had never before created music myself so that was definitely a defining moment when I realized that I didn’t need anyone else to do the soprano 2, alt 1 and alt 2 – I could just record all the harmonies myself and finish it all together in GarageBand.

Q: Who are your influences?
Memories, poems, people, nature, dreams and subtle feelings. I admire a lot of female musicians with unique voices, like Joni Mitchell, PJ Harvey, Susanne Sundför, Joan Baez, Jessica Pratt and Dolly Parton. I also listen to a lot of classical music as well as traditional folk songs. And church organs.

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
Neil young - Harvest
Kurt Vile – Childish Prodigy
Beach House – Teen Dream
Joni Mitchell – Blue
Joy Division - Substance

Q. How do you feel playing live?
It scares me and I’ve never had any live concerts as Primary Colour. Yet.

Q. How do you describe the sound of Primary Colour?
Fragmental and dreamy.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
I find a seed for the song: a word, a sentence, a sound or a melody and then I build upon that. I’m recording the vocals with my Focusrite home studio and then creating and mastering the music in Logic X Pro. I sometimes use live instruments such as violin and guitar.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
I’ve just discovered Daniel Norgren and hope that many others will too. Mac DeMarco is not that ‘new’ anymore but still. Brilliant!

Q: Which band would you love to make a cover version of?
I want to make a cover version of every song I get obsessed with. I’m very inspired by Nils Frahms music so it would be fun to create text or harmonies to his songs.

Q: What´s the plans for the future....
To explore more music. To find musicians that wants to play with me. And write more songs.

Q: Any parting words?
Thank you!
