Where We Will Be with Sketch Jets - An Interview

Escutar os australianos do Sketch Jets me remete diretamente ao saudoso "Fakebook" do Yo La Tengo.

Melodias, aquele saboroso ar lo-fi, tornam a audição extremamente prazerosa, um bem estar vai tomando conta conforme as canções vão passando que ao final, você esta tão leve que tudo faz completo sentido.

Deixe um pouco os problemas de lado, o Sketch Jets pode ser sua solução.

***** Interview with Sketch Jets *****

Q. When did Sketch Jets start? Tell us about the history...
I first met Lachlan (guitarist) during a music course we started and finished last year. We became good mates due to similar music taste and love of pop-tarts n kebabs. He co-wrote the first sketch jets demos around December last year with our bassist (Tom). About a week later they finalised the EP and released it on bandcamp. I joined to fill in the gap on the tubs and not long after we got our friend Hugh to do vocals. We have played only a couple of shows and since our inception have released an EP, and two singles.

Q: Who are your influences?
Most 90's shoegaze bands as they were apart of something great. Turnover, Title Fight, Deafheavan, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard and We Lost The Sea are some other major influences on all of us.

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…

1. Sunbather - Deafheavan
2. Methodrone - The Brian Jonestown Massacre

Completely in the zone. Nothing compares to that feeling of performing, unless its lsd

Q. How do you describe Sketch Jets sounds?
Alt rock, Shoegaze with Dream pop elements.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
It usually starts from a riff Lachlan cooks up. We elaborate on those ideas, and if we're lucky it'll become a song. Our demos are then recorded to listen to for further improvement. We are are a very DIY band for e.g. The drums for "For A While" was recorded with a compression mic and heavily effected with reverb.
