Spend Life with Make More - An Interview

by Shaina Kaye Photography

Quando os caras do Make More. trio de Brisbane, Austrália falam, "too indie for punks, too punk for indies", soa de certa maneira ou esquisito ou arrogante, mas daí durante a audição de "Spend Life" lançado mês passado, a frase começa a fazer todo sentido.

Influências de SY, Josef K, Fire Engines, The Smiths são o ponto de partida do Make More, passando claramente pelas dissonâncias noventistas e aterrizando nos dias de hoje, soando moderno e atual.

"Spend Life" esta mais para um art noise lo-fi ou algo do gênero. O ponto é, fica claro, que, punks, tampouco indies vão abraçar o Make More, muito pelo contrário.
