Spotless Mind with Bearwear - An Interview

Antigamente as bandas surgiam através de anúncios deixados em lojas de discos, paredes das escolas, práticas comuns em tempos distantes. Hoje, muitas bandas e projetos, nascem das redes sociais, caso dos japoneses do Bearwear.

Os caras se definem como algo entre o dreampop e o emo. Em fato, os caras passeiam mesmo mais pelo indie pop com doses sonhadoras, mas, existe algo de emo sim na sonoridade dos caras, vide "Spotless", lado b do novo single dos caras. É emo na essência, mas é dreampop na prática.

Independentemente do rótulo, os caras são um belíssimo exemplo de que, existe vida inteligente no indie, sem cair em armadilhas piegas das que conhecemos muito bem.

Que venha o álbum.

***** Interview with Bearwear *****

Q. When did Bearwear begin? Tell us about the history...
I found Kou(bass/composer) on Twitter when I was looking for a band. I asked him if we could form a band, and that’s when Bearwear started. I think it was during summer 2016.

Q: Who are your influences?
I guess we are influenced by Emo revival bands and some other indie rock bands. And also 90’s midwestern emo. Our favorite band is Turnover.

For myself, as a vocalist, I love Parker Cannon from The Story So Far, and John Floreani from Trophy Eyes.

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
This is a tough question.
1. Pennywise - Straight Ahead
2. Casey Jones - I Hope We’re Not The Last
3. Linkin Park - Hybrid Theory
4. State Champs - The Finer Things
5. Turnover - Good Nature
Maybe it’s not a best of all time, but these 5 album changed my life.

Q. How do you feel playing live?
We have only played in front of Japanese people, so we want to play in other countries

Q. How do you describe Bearwear´s sounds?
Chill, indie emo. A music that goes well with alcohol.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
We finished recording our upcoming album! Gonna release it this fall. We’ve released 2 EP so far and it’s available on Spotify!

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
I’ve been listening to Rex Orange County, Only Real, Julien Baker, Tyler The Creator, Speak Low If You Speak Love, Citizen

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
Penfold - I’ll Take You Everywhere or some pop songs from the 80’s and 90’s.

We did a cover of Turnover’s “Sasha” before.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
I’m not sure. We are gonna release the new album on October. I think it will depend on how much everyone will like that album.
