For Ex Lovers with Dear Eloise - An Interview

Semana dos chineses no TBTCI, ontem apresentamos o Forsaken Autumn e agora é a vez do duo Dear Eloise, cultuado nos meios iniciados, os caras tem dois álbuns bem legais no currículo, The Words That Burnt de 2011 e Beauty in Strangers de 2012, ambos seguem a mesma temática, noise pop ruidoso lembrando Black Tambourine, Velocity Girl e as guitar bands do início dos 90´s.

Pena que não toquem ao vivo, porque seria um deleite ficar pulando sem parar enquanto a parede ruidosa do Dear Eloise fosse entrando pelos tímpanos.

Dear Eloise é pra dias ensolarados como hoje, pra colocar nos fones e sair dando um rolê pela cidade, e feliz da vida.

***** Interview with Dear Eloise *****

Q. When did Dear Eloise starts, tell us about the history...
----The project starts at late of 2008. But the idea of doing a project like this was in our mind for many years. At that time Yang Haisong got some money from a tour with his main band P.K.14, so it seems be a good time to start Dear Eloise. At the end of 2008 we bought a home recording system and found out an empty space to move in and record all tunes.

Q: Who are your influences?
----Both of us love Jesus and Mary Chain for many years, that's the biggest inspiration.

Q. Made a list of 5 albums of all time…
Gastr Del Sol
Jesus and Mary Chain
John Coltrane

Q. How do you fell playing live?
---We don't play live, that's the 1st agreement between two of us even before we start the band. We all agree that Dear Eloise should be only on recording, even not on internet and in an interview, actually your interview is 2nd one in last 6 years.

Q. How do you describe Dear Eloise sounds?
----I guess simply say "noise+pop".

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
----We like to try different way to record the albums, sometime we finished the songs before we went to studio, sometimes we wrote only part of music, or some chords, and sometimes nothing but a rough idea or conception. Usually we spent a week or 10 days in studio with an assistant engineer and see what's gonna be happened, mostly we got good result when we 're out of studio, sometimes it's not very good.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
----We like to introduce some of Chinese new bands, like Fallacy, The fuzz, Hiperson, and birdstriking.

Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
----We did cover version of "you're my mirror" by Velvet Underground, and we have an ideas to cover some of songs from local scene by the end of this year, that would be a lot of fun.

Q: What´s the plans for future....
----New recording is on the road.

Q: Any parting words?
----Thanks !
thank you
