Crazy Town with Day Trip - An Interview

Guitar bands, é as guitar bands dos 90´s saca, Velocity Girl, Black Tambourines, etc, etc, etc, a como era bom não?!?!

Melodias tóxicas que impregnavam na mente daquelas da gente sair cantarolando com os velhos walkmans bem alto, bem alto mesmo, bons tempos. 

Ouvir o Day Trip é como entrar numa capsula e voltar no tempo, esse one man band de Honolulu no Hawaii é um negócio pegajoso e que traz aquele frescor saca, só que tudo modulado nos tempos de hoje, loops, guitarradas e temos a formula perfeita.

Ah como eu amo guitar bands.

***** Interview with Day Trip *****

Q. When did Day Trip starts tell us about the history...
I started tinkering with the idea of starting something sometime late last year. Day Trip didn't really start in earnest until early this year. I just wanted to do something myself since it's so hard to get people together and synchronize schedules and be on the same page musically. This way I can do it at my own pace and not hold anybody up.

Q: Who are your influences?
There's a bunch, but off the top of my head there's My Bloody Valentine, Ride, Drop Nineteens, Slowdive, the Stone Roses, Oasis, Teenage Fanclub. the Jesus & Mary Chain. Some influences may not have come across in the sound so far but they are influences none the less.

Q. Made a list of 5 albuns of all time
the Sundays "Reading, Writing...."
the Stone Roses "The Stone Roses"
Velocity Girl "Copacetic"
Sleater Kinney "Dig Me Out"
eenage Fanclub "Bandwagonesque"

Q. How do you fell playing live?
Day Trip is a bedroom project with just me. I really don't see any live shows happening. I don't care for them. I get way too nervous and anxious playing them so I'd like to avoid them as much as possible.

Q. How do you describe Day Trip's sounds?
I'd describe Day Trip's sound as shoegaze-y pop or poppy shoegaze. I like catchy poppy songs with hooks and I hope that comes across or at least will come across more the more this project continues.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
I usually mess around on the guitar while watching TV or something, if something catches my ear I try to play it over and over to get it ingrained into my brain. If i feel satisfied IÕll set up my recorder and pedals and try recording whatever other things like bass lines or whatever else usually comes along during this time while recording.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
I think Alcest is great. Their album "Shelter" is amazing. So is Wildhoney's latest ep "Seventeen Forever". I can't stop listening to it.

Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
If I could I'd like to do a cover of the Monkees song "Saturdays Child" off of their first album.

Q: What´s the plans for future....
To continue recording. To (hopefully) write catchier songs and just have fun with it.

Q: Any parting words?
Thank you for the interview Renato. Thank you friends for the support and encouraging words.
