***** Interview with Holy Science *****

Q. When did Holy Science starts, tell us about the history...
Well, three of us had a band together 2 years before and decided to join again and play with an old friend of Laro and a collegue from cinema school. It was a natural process, five people in a room with some instruments, dark lights, beer, and something to smoke. The rest will come along.

Q: Who are your influences?
We like to think that we’re influenced by many different kinds of music, anyway the bands that we all listen to are The black angels, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Pink Floyd, The war on drugs, Happy Mondays, Galaxy 500, Spacemen/Spiritualized/Spectrum, Yo La Tengo, Loop, Ride, Dirty three… We have a strong pop way of making songs, but then we hide them in fuzz and reverb. Simple and complicate at the same time.

Q. Made a list of 5 albums of all time…
Revolver (The Beatles),
Pet Sounds (Beach Boys),
Dark Side of the Moon (Pink Floyd),
Psychedellic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators,
The Velvet Underground & Nico.

Q. How do you fell playing alive?
It’s really exciting, we love to play alive.

Q. How do you describe Holy Science sounds?:
We want to see it a as a river, a flow of energy. Simple but always changing and easy to contemplate and understand… well, maybe not that easy ;)

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
The process may start at two different places: at home, with a personal idea or at the rehersal place with a comun improvisation. Anyway it always ends at the same place, like a river. But after a very long trip.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
 My expansive Awareness, Moondoïd, Lorelle meets the Obsolete, Morgan Delt, Guerra después de la fiesta, the Space Spectrum, Baywaves, Purple Heart Parade…

Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
Black Sabbath, Leonard Cohen, Elvis, ???

Q: What´s the plans for future....
We are about to record our first Lp soon. Very soon. Probably in September/October 2014.

Q: Any parting words?
We all come from the stars!
