All That We Lack with War Waves - An Interview

Pense em todas as vertentes do indie rock noventista, de Nirvana a Offspring, e MBV a Pavement, daí pegue uma banda da novíssima geração inglesa, mais precisamente de Ipswich, no caso o quarteto War Waves e seu segundo álbum lançado em Outubro, intitulado "All The We Lack" e situe tudo isso nos nossos dias nos quais a grande maioria esta mais afim de baixar mp3 e pouco se lixando para os formatos físicos, pois, veja, o disco dos caras esta esgotado, tal qual seu debute homônimo de 2015.

Porque? Simplesmente porque os caras são bons, e fazem seu som de forma que estão pouco se fodendo se você esta afim de conhece-los, sabe porque? Porque, tem muita gente que esta, e outra, o disco não estaria esgotado se não valesse muito, mais muito a pena.

Dê uma chance a você mesmo, experimente a experiência de chutar tudo como você fazia quando era moleque, no caso o War Waves é um estimulante perfeito.

***** Interview with War Waves *****

Q. When did War Waves start? Tell us about the history...
A: We have all been making music together for a few years now, but War Waves in this lineup has been together solidly for two years now. I came to my friends with a bunch of songs I had written and asked them to help!

Q: Who are your influences?
A: 90’s indie, Frightened Rabbit, The Smiths and Brand New.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
A: I can only speak for myself, but my top 5 albums are…actually, can I have 6 please?

The Smiths – S/T
Brand New – The Devil and God Are Raging Inside of Me
Saves the Day – Stay What You Are
Idlewild – The Remote Part
The Gaslight Anthem – The ’59 Sound
The Offspring - Smash

Q. How do you feel playing live?
A: I think our songs come across best live – the songs are very meaningful to us all and you can’t beat the live setting – the adrenaline and rush.

Q. How do you describe War Wavers sounds?
A: We have been described as putting a modern twist on 90’s indie, make of that what you will! I think we are honest, emotional and upbeat. Oh and I swear a lot…

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
A: Our first album was recorded in a basement separately onto tape, but for our new cd ‘All That We Lack’, we recorded it completely live, only adding vocals a few overdubs afterwards.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
A: I’m really loving Pinegrove at the moment!

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
A: Probably an Offspring song and we all loved them growing up. Gotta Get Away?!

Q: What are your plans for the future?
A: To keep writing music and releasing records. And to smile more.

Q: Any parting words?
A: You can pick up our new album ‘All That We Lack’ on CD and vinyl from www.backwaterrecords.com, or digitally from all major online retailers. There’s also some merch here: www.warwaves.bandcamp.com - *The new album 'All That We Lack' available digitally and on CD/LP now!*
