Everywhere I go is Silence with Box and the Twins - An Interview


Aos que acompanham o TBTCI, os alemães do Box and the Twins tem espaço reservado, quando o assunto sonoro adentra a territórios gélidos, densos e sombrios por conta de seus dois EPs, ("Our Fears" e "Below Zero" ambos de 2014), sem contar a especialíssima participação no tributo aos Smiths, lançado pelo TBTCI.

Após esta longa espera, eis que o Box and the Twins nos apresenta "Everywhere I go is Silence", seu debute, que veio ao mundo ontem através da novata gravadora Synth Religion, encabeçada por ninguém menos que Hélène de Thoury (Minuit Machine e Hante), que produz o disco inclusive.

"Everywhere I go is Silence" é essencialmente um álbum que navega entre a cold wave clássica e um certo ar shoegaze dark, ou algo similar, o ponto crucial é que não existe nenhum vestígio de luz no disco, de "Pale Blue Dot" a "(Note To Spiders") o ouvinte é conduzido a experiências profundamente desesperançosas.

Se o momento atual do universo é preocupante o Box and the Twins criaram a trilha sonora perfeita para o auto isolamento.

Atreva-se se for capaz.

***** Interview with Box and the Twins *****


Q. Hello, first congratulations on the new album, it's really brilliant, what is your analysis after conclusion of album? Are you happy with the result?
Box:: Hey guys, thanks so much for the nice words. So glad you like the album.

Mike: We are more than happy with the result. For me it feels a bit surreal, to have the Album finally finished, as we worked so hard on it and with so much passion.

Q. How was the process of creating Everywhere I go is Silence? What are the main differences between "Everywhere I go is Silence" and" Below Zero"?
Box: Creating the album was a real flowing process, with “Below Zero” being a kind of stopover. But a main difference is that we teamed up with Helene de Thoury (Minuit machine/Hante) for the mixing and production.

Mike: Yes, and for the first time we actually let someone from outside the band change and rearrange stuff - so Helene did end up co-producing some of the songs. She did an amazing job with the sound of the album


Q. What were the influences for creating the album?
Mike: Each have us has individual and very different influences. The three of us really don´t have the same musical background. For me, I am still very much into the classic early Wave sound, like early 4ad and factory Bands. I also like shoegaze very much.

Box: Marc is a bit more into temporarely Popmusic. I think his favourite record at the moment is the latest Metronomoy. And everytime I am asked what I would like to listen to I say “something sad and slow” (laughs).

Q. What are your plans for 2016?
Box: For 2016 we are going to play our first show in Paris, very excited about that, and for 2017 we are going to tour a lot, hopefully seeing places that we have never played before.

And we are also thinking about the next album….

Mike : …and how that should sound like. But for the moment we are totally excited about the release and hoping for some thrilling times!

Box: Thanks for having us!
