In Pieces with Expelled From Space - An Interview

Lublin, Poland, Janeiro de 2018, e uma nova aventura sonora começava sua jornada, Expelled From Space, é um one man band, onde o nome diz muito sobre a sonoridade, uma cândida e tenra viagem evocando o espaço, em uma solitária e melancólica odisseia sendo conduzida por reverbs.

Um mês basicamente se passou e o Expelled From Space, com três singles, aponta para uma intensa viagem.

A música do Expelled From Space é um exercício de isolamento.

***** Interview with Expelled From Space *****

Q. When did Expelled From Space begin? Tell us about the history...
To be honest, It began couple weeks ago. I finally found some time to work on my ideas of songs. So staying alone at home with my guitars and other gear = Expelled From Space.

Q: Who are your influences?
So many! but if you will put a gun to my head i would say Slowdive, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Interpol, Tame Impala,The Raveonettes, The Smiths and of course The Beatles - because i love them so very much since i was a little kid.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
The Beatles - White Album
Interpol - Turn on the bright lights
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Take Them On, On Your Own
The Smiths - Meat Is Murder
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Blood Sugar Sex Magik

Q. How do you feel playing live?
Never done that. Well, im on my own - there is nobody except me in the band, so playing live is quite impossible right now. But maybe someday...

Q. How do you describe Expelled From Space sounds?
Dreamy, shoegazy with little addition of rock and roll. And a lot of reverb. Because it's all about it.Reverb!

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
So i got my guitar (Epiphone Dot), i got my bass (some no name bass), lousy microphone, automatic percussion from fruity loops app and the greatest app to make music which is called Audacity (joke). Then im just recording track by track, and then some more. Putting it all together, looking for good sound. Lyrics are provided by my cousin (and i'm very thankfull for that - thanks Matthaus!).

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
Dont know if it's that new but i will say Pinkshinyultrablast - very cool shoegaze band. L.A. Witch - three cool, rocking girls. The Fruitcakes - from Poland (like I am!) - they have great 60' style. If you love The Beatles you will like their tunes. And of course Expelled From Space - very promissing!

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
I would say The Smiths, but they are so unique and making covers of their song is pointless!

Q: What are your plans for the future?
Just making more songs (another one was released on 22th January), having fun with music and see what happens.

Q: Any parting words?
I wish everybody good year with a lot of good new music. And check out my fanpage on Facebook for another songs. Soon. (
