Earth Energy with Soft Lions - An Interview

Megan Liscomb, Ana Ramundoe e Jon Bonser formam o garageiro e deliciosamente bubblegum Soft Lions.

Earth Energy é o mais recente trabalho deles, é soa tão pegajoso quanto pisar em chiclete na rua, a energética mescla de punk bubblegum com a sonoridade das girl groups dos 60´s, tudo com uma pequena dose riot fazer do Soft Lions essencial pra sair pulando mundo afora.

***** Interview with Soft Lions *****

Q. When did Soft Lions started, tell us about the history...
We started playing together in the summer of 2013 in San Diego, CA. I had been writing some songs on the guitar and found talented musicians Jon & Lex to help me bring them to life.

Q: Who are your influences?
Our latest EP was very influenced by surf guitar, Sonic Youth, and girl group harmonies.

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
My all time faves are Loaded by Velvet Underground, Cut by The Slits, Fever to Tell by Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Strange Mercy by St Vincent, and Songs of Leonard Cohen

Q. How do you feel playing live?
Playing live makes me feel like the most awesome version of myself. There's really nothing else like it.

Q. How do you describe Soft Lions sounds?
Soft Lions is moody, garagey, surfy & grungy.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs?
We recorded at Earthling Studios in El Cajon with our friend Mike Kamoo. We like to work on one song at a time in the studio as opposed to tracking by instrument. Our way takes a little longer, but it helps us change our sound from song to song.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended
I love La Luz, Parquet Courts, Peter Matthew Bauer, Slutever, Globelamp, Blouse, Swearin', and EMA.

Q: Which bands would you love to make a cover version of?
I've always wanted to cover Lesley Gore "You Don't Own Me". It's so sassy and fun to sing!

Q: What´s the plan for the future....
We just got home from playing our first show in San Francisco and we can't wait to get back up there. We're excited to hit the road more and work on an album.

Q: Any parting words?
We hope you sing along!
