Freak Scene with Elizabeth Colour Wheel - An Interview

Com uma sonoridade violenta recheada de muralhas de guitarras, sempre arrastadas e estridentes servindo de base para os vocais sedutores e densos, o Elizabeth Colour Wheel vai fundo em perpetuar um art noise com elementos de shoegazer.

Uma verdadeira pancada é seu ep homônimo lançado no último dia 10 de março.

***** Interview with Elizabeth Colour Wheel *****

Q. When did Elizabeth Colour Wheel started, tell us about the history...
We actually started around 1 year ago. We were originally a 3 piece and played a lot noisier and faster music. It was cool, but it really wasn’t what we wanted it to be. We then added 2 new members to make a much bigger and different sound and then wrote all new songs last summer to play when everyone can finally get back together and those eventually turned into our new EP.

Q: Who are your influences?
(Mainly) Boris, Swirlies, Lilys, Dinosaur Jr., My Bloody Valentine, Skywave, and Swervedriver.

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
We are all pretty much music addicts and this again is a very hard question for us, so we’ll give you what we consider our favorite right now, because it’s always changing.

Emmett: Drugs / Complex – Tera Melos
Nate: Aphex Twin – Syro
Adessa: Alt J – This is All Yours
Billy: Crystal Castles – II
Alec: Flying Lotus – You’re Dead!

Q. How do you feel playing live?
We feel that our sound is at it’s best live. Just about all of our recordings are done live to have that same energy we do when performing, but it still has some trouble coming across. We feel you have to be in the room with us to actually know what we are about.

Q. How do you describe Elizabeth Colour Wheel sounds?
To keep it simple, loud and aggressive guitars and drums with comforting vocals.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs?
We try to record as live as possible, minimal overdubbing. We prefer to have each song only attempted 2-3 times so the energy is still there. After that many attempts it kind of starts to feel boring. So we’d much rather have a couple mistakes than it not have the energy we know we have.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended
Endon, Sumac, Novella, Pinkshinyultrablast (not new but if you don’t listen to them you should)

Q: Which bands would you love to make a cover version of?
We already did Crystal Castles and Dolly Parton, so I guess next would be Dinosaur Jr., Melt Banana, Descendants, or La Femme.

Q: What´s the plan for the future....
We just want to keep playing shows and recording music. We want to go as far as possible with it and try to play as many places as possible.

Q: Any parting words?
I think you just about covered it all, thanks for taking your time to interview us!
