Tell Me What You See with Anatomy Class - An Interview

Quando amigos se encontram pra fazer um som, tomar umas bebidas e curtir esses momentos raramente algo pode dar errado certo? Certíssimo.

Este basicamente é o caso dos australianos do Anatomy Class, todos os caras tem suas bandas originais, exemplo, Paul faz parte do predileto da casa, Skullsquadron.

Em 2014 esses amigos se juntaram e criaram a banda, mas muito mais do que isso, recriaram suas essências noventistas, uma guitarreira melódica daquelas que amamos. Como eles mesmos colocam, dreampop muscoloso, termo mais perfeito para descreve-los impossível.

"Tell Me What You See" é o último trabalho dos caras, e precisa, veja bem, precisa ser escutado bem alto.

Aproveite os bons momentos da vida e aumente o som, uma das trilhas sonoras mais propícias pra esses momentos certamente é o Anatomy Class.

***** Interview with Anatomy Class *****

Q. When did Anatomy Class start? Tell us about the history...
A: Anatomy Class formed in mid 2014, through mutual friends – we were all separately playing music in one band or another. We got together to jam some new songs, and we just kept going from there. We’re all big music fans and really gelled through our shared love of indie-rock classics, live shows and generally making a racket together!

Q: Who are your influences?
A: Anyone with a tune and a heartbeat!

Our musical influences range from modern day sound masters (Cheatahs, Mute Math, Deerhunter), to 90’s heroes (Lemonheads, You Am I, Pixies, Underground Lovers).

Q. Make a list of top 5 albums of all time…
A: 1 Cass McCombs - Mangy Love,
2 The The - Soul Mining,
3 Blake Babies – Sunburn,
4 Big Star - Radio City,
5 Byrds - Notorious Byrd Brothers.

1 You Am I – Hi Fi Way,
2 The Beatles – White Album,
3 My Bloody Valentine – Loveless,
4 Lemonheads – It’s a Shame About Ray,
5 Swervedriver – Mezcal Head

1 My Bloody Valentine – Loveless,
2 Bjork – Vespertine,
3 The Cure – Faith,
4 Land of Talk – Cloak & Cipher,
5 Mogwai – Ten Rapid.

Q: How do you feel playing live?
A: Exhilarated and locked in! We love playing live. It’s a chance to really connect your audience and be in your own little world for a while. Even though we’ve all played in bands for years, it’s still a great buzz every time you get on-stage. For us, it’s not about being in a particular scene or fitting a particular style – it’s about writing great songs, engaging with our fans, and having fun doing it!

Q. How do you describe Anatomy Class' sounds?
A: Dream pop / indie-rock with muscle.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
A: It all starts in the rehearsal room – we hone the songs in the practice room and at live shows before we get into the recording studio. With the recording process on the first album, we recorded a tight live version of the songs together, and then layered the hell out of it. Album number two may be a little more stripped back, but it’s hard to know until all the new songs are ready and we get back in the studio – we’re hoping to get some new tracks down in 2017.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
A: Cheatahs, Flyying Colours, Roadhouses.

Q: Which band would you love to make a cover version of?
A: Low

Q: What are your plans for the future?
A: Immediate plans are to keep playing live shows and tour the debut album, and at the same time, we’ll keep writing and road-testing new songs. Then the plan is to hit the studio and make album number two even better than the first.

Q: Any parting words?
A: Happy new year!
