Synthstatic with Nothing. Existed. - An Interview

A mistura de pos punk, noise, shoegazer e dark nunca foi tão bem executa como no ep de estreia do Nothing. Existed.

A brutalidade escura dos caras espanta e surpreende, uma das melhores coisas lançadas neste 2014, doentio, caótico, cerebral e intenso, No Future do Nothing. Existed. vai direto para os grandes lançamentos deste ano.

Simplesmente indispensável.

***** Interview with Nothing. Existed. *****

Q: When did N.E. start, tell us about the history:
TB: First started writing and recording under the N.E. name in 2009 when I was living in Norwich, at that stage it was RW and I, and then later just myself. The demo from this period is still out there if people look hard enough. N.E. was put on hold while I focused on other artistic pursuits. In late 2013 it was resurrected with RC joining. During 2014 RA was added to the line-up.

Q: What are your influences?
N.E.: absurdism, brutalism, Laika, the ocean, psychogeography, reading, reification of freedom, situationism, concrete, static.

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time:
N.E.: Not necessary of all time, but these are five albums we could partially agree on

Asylum Party – Borderline
Ceremony - Disappear
Jesus and Mary Chain – Psychocandy
My Bloody Valentine – Loveless
Skywave – Synthstatic

Q. How do you feel playing live?
N.E.: Nothing

Q. How do you describe N.E. sounds?
N.E.: Bedroom gothgaze

Q: Tell us about the recording process?
TB: There is no formal recording process, I will plug in and start recording straight away and build a song around whatever I come up with.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
N.E: There are lots, here are a few:

Autumns, Decades/Failures, Deficit Budgétaire, Gleemer, Koma Koma, Psychic Hearts, Static Daydream, The Amount of Light We Give Off, Veil of Light, XTRA Human, and everything on Anywave records.

Q: Which bands would you like to cover?
N.E: No one. People should cover N.E.

Q: What´s the plans for future?
N.E.: Work on the follow up to No Future and more releases. Prepare for 2015 live appearances.

Q: Any parting words?
N.E.: First, that nothing exists, second, that even if existence exists, it is inapprehensible, and third, that even if existence is apprehensible, it cannot be communicated or interpreted.
