Regular Trip with The Black Spiral - An Interview

E a tradição do TBTCI prossegue, The Black Spiral, nada lançado oficial, apenas um registro absolutamente viciante, o vídeo de Regular Trip, mostra que o duo, pisa fortemente tanto na cena psych moderna como aquele toque noventista mesclado com um Q de Interpol.

Se eu fosse definir Regular Trip rapidamente eu diria que é uma colisão entre B.R.M.C. com Interpol e sai o rebento, The Black Spiral.

Desde já, o TBTCI esta ansioso por mais material dos caras, e fica a dica de uma das grandes revelações deste 2014.

***** Interview with The Black Spiral *****

Q. When did The Black Spiral starts, tell us about the history...
We have set up the Black Spiral a bit more than a year ago. Before then, we had been together in the same band for 15 years . We seemed to be going nowhere so the 2 of us decided to move on to a new project.

Q: Who are your influences?
We love 60s rock going from Swinging London to psychedelic rock. This is what influences us the most. This is the root of our music. However we can’t deny that we’ve always been influenced by 90s rocks : Pixies, Sonic Youth…these bands played the sountrack for our teenage years.

Q. Made a list of 5 albuns of all time…
It would take us months to be able to make a choice…

Q. How do you fell playing alive?
We love playing live but unfortunately we haven’t done it yet with The Black Spiral . We’ve been just the 2 of us so that was kind of tricky for us to play live, but 2 musicians have just joined us and we’ been working with the hope of playing gigs.

Q. How do you describe The Black Spiral´s sounds?
Our sound results from a mix of our influences from the 60s and 90s.it’s both trippy and stirring , mesmerizing and rythmical. We are endlessly looking for our ideal sound.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
We record in our basement. Working in a homestudio enables to easily explore different

Options when we compose, record, mix and arrange our tracks.

We are currently looking for the studio that would be most adapted to achieve the sound we are looking for.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
The Black Spiral ?

Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
We have a difficult relationship with covers . we have tried several times, most of the times covering the Doors but we’ve never been satisfied with the result

Q: What´s the plans for future....
We are recording some new tracks and preparing some music videos. One of them will be posted on our Facebook page soon.

We are also preparing our first gigs and we hope to grab the attention of a label.

Q: Any parting words?
We would like to thank all the people who have supported us since our first music video, Regular Trip, and especially Jean Elliot Senior, Thierry Bellia and Eddy la Gooyatsh.
Thanks guys
