Light Years, segundo Ep dos holandeses do Laura Palmer, entrou diretamente para a lista das audições constantes aqui no TBTCI.
A receita das três poderosas canções do ep estão notadamente centradas na junção do hipnótica do shoegaze do Ride, era Nowhere e a atmosfera pós punk clássica, leia-se Cure e Joy Division.
Parece mais do mesmo, mas a hipnótica, e por vezes ruidosa, combinação que o Laura Palmer impõe aplica a suas referências gerou um resultado empolgante.
Não deixe passar em branco.
***** Interview with Laura Palmer *****
Laura Palmer started as a one-man-project. The founding member bought a digital recorder and started recording news ideas in the year 2010. After he had finished some songs he started the band. In the year 2014 Laura Palmer was complete!
Q: Who are your influences?
Joy Division, New Order, The Cure, My bloody valentine, Slowdive, Ride and so on and so on
Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
Bullshit question haha. But I don’t want to be a spoil:
Loveless – My bloody valentine
Souvlaki – Slowdive
Pornography – The Cure
Nowhere – Ride
Come on die young – Mogwai
Unknown Pleasure & Closee - Joy Division
Q. How do you feel playing live?
I love it! It gives me a feeling compared to XTC without taking the drugs.
Q. How do you describe Laura Palmer sounds?
We categorized it as Nugaze. It’s a combination of New Wave en Shoegaze without an producing an old fashioned sound. It’s fresh but with the influences of the best New Wave bands of the 80-ties. Although, some people say The glow of television sounds like Editors. Judge by yourself: http://laurapalmermusic.bandcamp.com/track/glow-of-television
Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
It all starts with a riff on guitar mostly. The riff always comes spontaneously. First we try some variations, but most of the time the first idea is the best…as always. After that we start rehearsing and Niek writes these beautiful lyrics as only he can. Just try to figure them out if you want to be linguistically challenged
Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
Don’t know. There are too many bands to choose from. I like DIIVV a lot, but there not that new are they?
Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
‘Murder on the dance floor’ by Sophie Ellis Baxtor
Q: What are your plans for the future?
To make a full length album, play at festivals and at respectable venues.
Q: Any parting words?
