***** Interview with Tired Eyes *****

Q. When did Tired Eyes started, tell us about the history...
Tired Eyes actually started just a few weeks ago. I had started on a song that didn't really fit into my other projects and when I had finished writing the song I was surprised by how good it actually sounded, so I decided to write a few more songs to go along with it. It felt really good, because I've actually wanted to write music with more of an indie/shoegaze feel to it for a rather long time, but somehow never gotten around to do it until now.

Q: Who are your influences?
I guess I have a lot of different influences. I haven't tried to sound like any other band on purpose, but I listened a lot to Makthaverskan and Ringo Deathstarr during the writing process, and I guess that the EP kind of turned out like a mixture of the two different sounds of those bands.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
That's really hard to do, since there are so many good albums out there and I constantly find new favorites. But here are five albums I really like right now:
Makthaverskan – Makthaverskan II
Ringo Deathstarr – Colour Trip
Suburban Lawns – Suburban Lawns
Diiv – Oshin
Le Tigre – Le Tigre

Q. How do you feel playing live?
I haven't had the time to play live with Tired Eyes yet, due to many reasons (mostly because it's a solo project, and my other band is still my main focus). I have played live before though, and I love it, it's one of the most beautiful and terrifying things at the same time.

Q. How do you describe Tired Eyes sounds?
I don't really like to describe it, I want people to create their own idea of what my music is, but if I have to describe it, I'd say it consists of reverb and atmospheric emotions. I've started writing some new songs, and I think the next EP (whenever that may be) will have a slightly different sound.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
Everything has been done by me in my bedroom. Since I don't have access to a studio, and can't afford renting one, I had to recreate everything I wrote through software-instruments and mixing in Logic, and the vocals were recorded with the microphone that's built into the laptop.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
I recommend the swedish band Nolltolerans, they are really great. They haven't released any songs yet, but there are a few live videos on their facebook and I think they'll release a single soon. I have seen them live and it's like being in a dream, the reverb and the voices are beautiful.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
I don't know, I guess it would be Makthaverskan or Nolltolerans.

Q: What´s the plans for future....
I don't have anything special planned. As I said earlier, I have been working on some new songs but they are far from done and I have no idea when they will be finished, it might take a month or 6 months, who knows? I'd love to have some live shows eventually, but I have no idea when, or if, that will happen either. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Q: Any parting words?
Thanks for everything, take care.
