Некуда идти with Vrazek - An Interview

Os russos retornam as páginas do TBTCI, agora representandos pelo raivoso e melancólico trio, Vrazek.

Um mix de post hardcore, pós punk e pitadas aqui e ali de algo que um dia foi chamado de shoegaze.

Tanto o novo single, "Некуда идти" como o debute "Пригород", são em sua essência um pós punk rápido, melódico e cru, sem a menor possibilidade de sutilezas.

Uma obscura banda que certamente vai permanecer obscura e circulando apenas no escuro limbo do submundo dos bons sons.

***** Interview with Vrazek *****

Q: When did Vrazek begin? Tell us about the history...
A: Vrazek roots lay down in post-black band. English lyrics, blastbeats, melodic guitars, but at one moment we decide to make new russian language project

Q: Who are your influences?
A: Main influences are genres like post-black, screamo, shoegaze and oldschool fast and raw post-punk. Anyway there are tons of ideas which I can include in my music that came from different bands. I think there is no bad genres at all, every single genre could be great and influental if musicians are talented enough.

Q: Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
A: It's so hard to choose but ok

The Killers - Hot Fuss
Amesoeurs - Amesoeurs
макулатура - Пляж
культура курения - некрофилия
Depeche Mode - 101

Q: How do you feel playing live?
A: Playing live = personal war

Q: How do you describe Vrazek´s sounds?
A: Robert Smith discovered screamo and joined Birds in Row

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs?
A: Recording sessions are probably one of the most boring process in music, they lead to total mental exhaustion (at least for me). Creating music is way more fun and interesting than polishing it to studio version

Q: Which new bands do you recommend?
A: Russian bands Колчак and Чёрная речка

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
A: I have an idea to make some cover EP with obscure 90's russian bands songs

Q: What are your plans for the future?
A: Best plan is to have no any plans. Just do what you have to do and that's it. New album is about to release in febuary

Q: Any parting words?
A: Love your mom and make your gig slam
