Asphalt Ocean with The Mites - An Interview

Descendente direta das guitar bands noventistas, leia-se Velocity Girl, Madder Rose e das bubblegums indie bands britânicas do meio dos 80´s, no caso, Primitives, Darling Buds, entre outras, vem o quarteto de Santo Antonio no Texas, The Mites e seu mais novo single "Asphalt Ocean" que gruda na mente de tal maneira e é basicamente impossível não sair cantarolando a canção.

"Asphalt Ocean" sucede o delicioso EP "Bellows" de 2014 e serve como aperitivo do que virá pela frente.

Com o The Mites podemos esperar apenas uma coisa, amor em formato guitar band.

***** Interview with The Mites *****

Q. When did the Mites start? Tell us about the history…
A mite is like a small spider. Not sure when those started popping up but I’d be willing to bet it was a really, really long time ago. We’re just jumping on the evolutionary bandwagon.

Q. Who are your influences?
Books. Tons of books. We don’t really listen to music. Our imaginations make music through the act of reading large academic tomes.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time
1. Al Bundy
2. Dr. Carl Albun, MD of Hoffman Estates, IL
3. The White Albun by TISM
4. Nak’al Bun Elementary School
5. Laura Albun, Product Manager of DevBridge Group

Honorable mention: Al Bun-D Tha Great (35 views on YouTube, you’ll get there!!)

Q. How do you feel playing live?
We have never set foot on a stage to perform in front of other humans thus far. I cannot answer this question. If I had to guess, I’d say nervous.

Q. How do you describe The Mites sounds?
If you took the Necronomicon and painted its pages with pastel colored pencils you’d basically be listening to The Mites already.

Q. Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
We do everything in-house. It’s hard to trust other humans that aren’t tapped into the hive mind of Mites. We’ve recorded in studios and had debates about riffs and drum beats in complete silence and the engineers never can understand where we want to go since they only communicate through auditory means. If we offered them the implant I don’t think they’d be able to handle the colors.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
Not a one.

Q. Which band would you love to make cover version of?
This question is very interesting. Upon first read through, we are lead to believe that we are to speak on the subject of a cover version of a song that we would like to perform. However, towards the end of the sentence you use the term “made” which implies we have already performed this cover version. I commend your sly writing structural skills but I won’t fall for your trickery.

Q. What are your plans for the future?

Q. Any parting words?
Thank you for your time.
