Warm with No Sun - An Interview

Seguindo a linhagem de novas bandas barulhentas e densas com um pé no shoegaze e outro no post hardcore como o Creepoid, Nothing, Whirr e outras, chegando pra reforçar os decibéis os caras do No Sun através do EP Warm, já deixa explícito que aqui o negócio é condensar MBV com Swervedriver e Sunny Day Real State e chutar o som o mais alto possível.

E se estamos falando de barulheira, o TBTCI aprova e endossa.

***** Interview with No Sun *****

Q. When did No Sun start? Tell us about the history...
A: No Sun started about two years ago. It started as an acoustic side project at the time. Eventually the lineup grew and after a few member changes it became what it is today.

Q: Who are your influences?
A: We all draw influences from a variety of different bands and genres, but I would say our main influences are probably My Bloody Valentine, The Smashing Pumpkins, Failure, Swervedriver, and Slowdive.

 Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
A: My list of five best albums of all time seems to always be interchanging and are very inconsistent, so it's impossible to get a straight answer out of me. However, my top five records that came out this year are:
1. Creepoid - Cemetary Highrise Slum
2. Cloakroom - Further Out
3. Ringo Deathstarr - Pure Mood
4. Beach House - Thank Your Lucky Stars
5. Ceremony - The L Shaped Man

Q. How do you feel playing live?
A: Sometimes I get pretty nervous. Especially when we are playing a newer song for the first few times. This is the first band I have ever sang for, and I think I'm still trying to find my comfort zone as a "front man". Other than that, blissful. There is nothing I enjoy doing more than playing in this band.

 Q. How do you describe No Sun sounds?
A: I feel like we take a lot of influence from 90s rock and shoegaze, yet we find a way to put our own unique spin on it.

 Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
A: We recorded our EP at Soundcave Studios in Salt Lake City with Andrew Goldring. We use start with drums and scratch guitar (a rough guitar track for the drums to play along to), and then add guitars, bass, and vocals from there.

 Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
A: Creepoid, Sights, Youth In Bloom, Sistine, Crush, No Paradise, Infinity Girl, Disappears, Hollow Sunshine, and Keep have all been on heavy rotation for me lately.

 Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
A: I would really love to do a shoegaze cover of "Heroes" by David Bowie one day. Other than that, it would be great to cover any of the bands that inspire us.

 Q: What are your plans for the future?
A: Lots of touring through the US and we'll be releasing an LP.

 Q: Any parting words?
A: Thank you.
