Just For A Day with Last Leaf Down - An Interview

Shoegazer diretamente da Suíca, seguindo a trilha dos sonhos e do desespero aberta pelo Slowdive e copiada a exaustão, o Last Leaf Down ainda sem nenhum lancamento oficial, seduz, sim seduz, mesmo sem soar inovador, muito longe disso, o que o Last Leaf Down tem a seu favor é exatamente o lado denso do Slowdive, tal qual o Air Formation tinha, e isso vale muito, por vezes eles caminham mais soturnamente certamente pois foram deveras influenciados pelo Desintegration do Cure, o que dá o toque caprichoso nas construcões sonoras e tristes da música do Last Leaf Down.

Shoegazer at the top.

***** Interview with Last Leaf Down *****

Q. When did Last Leaf Down starts, tell us about the history...
A. Danny and Sascha founded the Band in 2003 as some sort of doom-gothic band. In 2007, two members left the band , Benjamin and Patrick joined. From this point we moved on to a more ethereal sound.

Q: Who are your influences?
Anathema, Katatonia, Slowdive and many other Bands...

Q. Made a list of 5 albums of all time…
A. - a natural disaster (anathema) - just for a day (slowdive) - comfort in sound (feeder) - last fair deal done down (katatonia) - the second you sleep (saybia)

Q. How do you fell playing live?
A. It's great to see that people like our work. We’re really enjoying playing live. But right now we rarely do gigs, because we are still very busy with the finishing of our debut album.

Q. How do you describe Last Leaf Down sounds?
A. A dark coloured, dreamy shoegaze with some slices of post punk and ambient – like heavy stones floating in a widened world. Shoegaze from the woods :)

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs?
A. Every song starts with a demo. Sascha or Benjamin produce a complete demo, talk to the band and make some changes. In a second step, we‘re working on the guitar sound and the details. This can take much time to find the sound that we have in our heads.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
A. Hmm, they are not really new, but... Olafur Arnalds, my useless life, Petter Carlsen, Daughter...

Q. Which bands you love to made a cover version?
A. If we hear a really good song from another genre it would be a challenge to record it in our way and taste.

Q: What´s the plans for future...
A. First of all, we’re going to release our debut album and working on producing a video for one of these songs. At the moment, many things are happening in the background.

Q: Any parting words?
A. I hope you all have patience, our album will come. Thank you very much for all the support.
Thanks Sascha
