***** Interview with Keith Canisius *****

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?
KC: Thanks a lot!

I think it sounds better than the last one I did. I always set the goal to make my albums sound better and better,

So I’m happy in that sense. To be honest I think it has slightly better material than previous as well.
The style is a little different than the last album. I think it sounds a little darker to me personally.

Q. How was the process of creating the album?
KC: It’s a little hectic. I like working quick and at least four hours in a row.
This album was made with many long breakes. Some of the songs are over three years old.
I’ve been busy with family and work. I had twins four years ago

Q. What are the main differences between "We are the Dreamers" and your early releases ?
KC: Sounds a little darker. Not as shoegazey as the first couple of albums. But I think people, can hear it’s me.

Q. What were the influences for creating the album?
KC: Not really any this time. I just write and record by now. But I liked some stuff from Kranky records.
I liked the dark moods of the band Implodes, but I don’t sound like them. Something about their solo guitar sound I liked and was a little inspired of one my track Swim.

Q. What are your plans for 2016/2017?
KC: Not that many right now. I take one week at the time. But I would like to have more time and energy for music, haha!
