Interstellar Overdrive with New Candys - An Interview

Ainda em clima de psicodelia, agora chegou a vez do New Candys aterrizar nas páginas do TBTCI.

E não é que a Itália tem gerado espetacular expoentes do new psych?!?!? Vide Thee Piatcions por exemplo, o New Candys já tem um currículo invejável, os caras já chamara atencão de nada mais nada menos que Anton Newcombe, e são cultuados pelos iniciados e psychs ao redor do mundo, inclua aí o TBTCI

O último registro dos caras é o pegajoso Stars Reach the Abyss de 2012, mas não se preocupem porque logo logo tem novidade dos freaks.

Mas assim, se você não conhece o New Candys, já se prepare porque aqui é psicodelismo a flor da pele, pra viajar sem se mover....e o ticket da viagem é daquele jeito, só ida, a volta não é garantida não, mas nem esquente, vale cada segundo do trajeto.

Boa viagem.....

***** Interview with New Candys *****

Q. When did New Candys form? tell us your story…
We formed in 2008, after Dario (drummer) joined the band everything started to work and by june 2008 we played our first show. We had a break time because Fernando moved to London and got back in summer 2009. Soon after we recorded our first self-produced EP and we got attention from the "Italian underground rock scene". We made our first album in 2012, soon you'll hear the second one.

Q: What are your influences?
Velvet Underground, Syd's Pink Floyd, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Warlocks, Raveonettes, Dandy Warhols, Crystal Stilts, and many others… I can tell you we are not influenced by Duran Duran like bands and 80s music in general. We don't like Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Queen, they scream too much and don't look cool.

Q. Your 5 albums of all time…
The Velvet Underground & Nico
Pink Floyd - The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn
The Brian Jonestown Massacre - Give It Back!
The Beatles - The Beatles
Nirvana - In Utero

Q. How do you feel playing live?
We feel good, but honestly playing live isn't the most exciting moment for us. We prefer the writing process because it's more creative. There are too many factors that could influence a live show, the sound outside the stage, inside the stage, the lights, the place, the people, and we can't control everything, so every live show is different, sometimes it's fantastic, sometimes it's ok.

Q. How do you describe New Candys' sounds?
Dark rock'n'roll with high psychedelic tendencies.

Q: Tell us about the recording process.
It's the most creative moment after the writing process, because you listen to the song with more accuracy and you can play more with sounds, take care of details.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
In the last year we started listening to The Growlers and Singapore Sling more than others. We shared the stage with some great Italian bands like Mother Island, Gli Sportivi, Supertempo, Brothers In Law, Hot Gossip, Zabrisky and many others.

Q: Which band and song would you like to cover?
Loop - Fade Out
Crystal Stilts - Converging In The Quiet
The Growlers - Row

Q: What are the plans for the future….
Putting out the album we recorded last year, make an European tour.

Q: Any parting words?
Fashion people should stop raping the "rock'n'roll" word.
Rock'n'roll is on the road, not on a fucking catwalk.
Thanks guys
