Kiss Them For Me with Psychic Twin - An Interview

Ouvir as meninas do Psychic Twin é tipo assim; ou você se apaixona pela música e por elas ou você tem algum problema.

Strangers, o último single é deliciosamente sedutor, um vício sem fim, pra cair na pista e dançar pra valer, é dançante é doce e é soturninho um certo clima dark blasé vem e volta com a sonoridade das garotas.

Digamos que se você quer dançar, sonhar e se apaixonar, o caminho é com elas.

***** Interview with Psychic Twin *****

Q. When did Psychic Twin started, tell us about the history…
I started psychic twin about 4 years ago in my basement when i was living in Illinois. I had always wanted to start my own project ...the idea had been brewing in my mind for years.

Q: Who are your influences?
Annie Lennox, Janet Jackson, Broadcast, Laurie Anderson, Cocteau Twins, Gary Numan, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Whitney Houston, The Art of Noise, early Madonna, Brian Eno...

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
Oh man…hard for me to say the top 5 albums of all time because I think this list is constantly changing for me. But I can tell you 5 albums that really move me and are important to me.

Mercury Rev Deserter's Songs
Laurie Anderson Big Science
Gary Numan The Pleasure Principal
XTC Drums and Wires
Bob Dylan Planet Waves

Q. How do you feel playing live?
I get very nervous before shows, but i absolutely adore playing live even so. There's nothing else like it. I suspect, like many musicians, that i am addicted to the rush of adrenaline I feel before and during a performance and also to the euphoria I feel afterwards.

Q. How do you describe Psychic Twin´s sound?

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs?
I like to have my little stations all set up. Analog synth station, drum station, vocal station, wine station..haha. Anyways, I love to write and record at the same time and build a song in a sort of stream of consciousness style. To just let each part drift out naturally. Songwriting, lyrics, melody these things usually come quickly for me if I'm feeling inspired. I go back and edit later, but i love to just let the process happen quickly and without much interruption when writing a new song.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended
Steve Sobs
My Body
Nick Hakim
Goth Pith

Q: Which bands would you love to make a cover version of?
Oh there are so many…right now i'm working on a Janet Jackson cover.

Q: What´s the plan for the future….
Just about to finish my first record. I moved to Brooklyn alone a year and a half ago and things really began to open up for me. It was tough to say the least, but i am now feeling more settled and playing live with two incredible woman; Rosana Caban and Whitney Broadstreet. The three of us can't wait to play more shows together this year.
