Daylight Storms with You Walk Through Walls - An Interview

Desde quando fiquei sabendo do término do Air Formation, me bateu uma tristeza porque porra, talvez a única banda que havia captado toda a beleza do Slowdive, Ride sem cair pro lado etéreo mas sim trabalhando fortemente as guitarras e ambiências e quando do seu fim, realmente abriu-se uma lacuna.

Mas a questão de duas ou três semanas ouvindo o grande Ailton de Oliveira e seu cool Radio-Activity meio que por mágica começou a rolar o som de uma banda nova do ClubAC30 chamada You Walk Throught Walls nome estranho mas com uma voz e sonoridade que na hora me recordou o Air Formation, comentei com ele e batemos um papo, e fui pesquisar a respeito dessa nova banda e para minha surpresa a frente do You Walk Throught Walls esta o grande Matt Bartram a mente do Air Formation, dai meus caros, foi amor e felicidade mesmo.

E o You Walk Throught Walls acabou de lançar seu debut homônimo e é uma sequência lógica do trabalho do Air Formation, que diga-se de passagem é um tremendo de um album fascinante.

Se você como eu estava orfão, agora sorria e alegre-se....o You Walk Through Walls e o grande Matt estão na ativa novamente.

***** Interview with You Walk Through Walls *****

Q. When did You Walk Through Walls starts, tell us about the history...
A couple of months after Air Formation ended I found myself writing a bunch of new songs which had a different, fresher, feel to them. I'd been in contact with Harry for a while about doing something musical together so asked if he wanted to play Bass on the tracks. James (Air Formation) is my Brother-in-law so was the obvious choice to play the drums.

Q: Who are your influences?
The Cure, Swervedriver, The House of Love, Flying Saucer Attack

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
The Cure - Disintegration
Flying Saucer Attack - Further
Spiritualized - Pure Phase
The Jesus & Mary Chain - Psychocandy
The Raveonettes - Lust Lust Lust

Q. How do you feel about playing live?
I enjoy it the majority of the time, but it depends on who's doing the sound. It's quite hard getting across that "more reverb" actually means "a lot more fucking reverb". I also sing pretty quietly which always causes problems....

Q. How do you describe You Walk Through Walls sounds?
I find it so hard describing my own music. layers of guitars with a driving rhythm section..... Most of all I just think they are all cracking songs that people can connect with.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
It really is a case of just recording the tracks as a live band then doing the overdubs without getting too carried away. For the album James sung backing vocals on a few tracks and played keyboards on one which gave it a different feel.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
I'm seriously out of touch... maybe you could recommend me some.

Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
I really have no interest in playing other peoples songs, I have enough of my own that could do with some time being spent on. I'd rather focus on those. I think listeners would appreciate it more.

Q: What´s the plans for future....
I think the plan is to do another EP. 4 songs in around 10 minuets... in the vein of 'Gone in a Day'. Something fun and full on. I've got to write them first so who knows.....

Q: Any parting words?
Our debut album is out NOW! from all Digital Outlets and Ltd Coloured Vinyl via Club AC30.
Thanks Matt
