Quando se dá o play no belíssimo álbum lançado em agosto desse ano dos espanhóis do Seven Tin Stars a primeira coisa que me veio na cabeça foi o Pia Fraus, não especificamente a banda sonoramente mas aquela atmosfera que eles eram mestres em criam.
E em Goodbye Stars (Daylight is Coming) o 7TS atinge a mesma excelência, guitarras suaves com doces pitadas de barulhos sem soar jamais estridente, vocais evocando sonhos, um mix perfeito entre shoegaze e dreampop.
Um álbum que quando menos se espera esta lá pela quarta audição seguida e ainda se faz necessário mais e mais vezes. Lindo.
***** Interview with Seven Tin Stars *****
Q. When did Seven Tin Stars start? tell us about the history...
I remember it was one night at "Pains of Being Pure at Heart" concert at "El Circulo del Arte", in Toledo (Spain) that Fernando de la Flor, my partner in "Gente Joven" our other band (now in 7TS too) suggested I could write some songs. Then I rescued an old project to form Seven Tin Stars.
Q: Who are your influences?
SHOULD, SPACEMEN 3, SECRET SHINE, AIR FORMATION, JESSICA BAILIFF, MY BLLODY VALENTINE, RINGO DEATHSTARR, BARDO POND, FLYING SAUCER ATTACK,
WINDY AND CARL, PIA FRAUS, BOWERY ELECTRIC,A PLACE TO BUTY STRANGERS, DROP NINETEENS, MEETING PLACES, DESOLATION WILDERNESS, REAL ESTATE, LOTUS PLAZA, ATLAS SOUND, DEERHUNTER, WILD NOTHING, BEACH HOUSE, THE CHERRY WAVE, ULTIMATE PAINTING, ASALTO AL PARQUE ZOOLOGICO to name a few...
Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
Under a shoegaze sky...uhmmmm, I say these for instance:
Loveless - My bloody valentine (91)
In the presence of nothing - LILYS (92)
Alone I Admire - Auburn Lull (99)
When the Sky Comes Down It Comes Down on Your Head - The Zephyrs (01)
After summer - Pia Fraus (08)
Each of these LPs meant something very special to me at the time.
However, it's true that there is life beyond shoegaze and I like many other very different albums.
How do you feel playing live?
Rather nervous and alert until you check that everything is working. Then I relax and let myself go. It is as if I were floating on air.
Anyway, when you become aware, it's over. And with any luck you may have even enjoyed a little (haha)
Q. How do you describe Seven Tin Stars sounds?
Well, I can't answer this question. Please, could you do it for me? I only could try to explain what it means for me.
Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
Well, this is just another room project, so we haven't got either much possibilities or infrastructure. We only try to sound as best as possible with very limited resources. For this reason the song never turns out like it was in our minds.
Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
DORIAS BARACCA, lA CASA AL MARE,EVERYONE BUT ME, IMANDRA LAKE and many others. There are a lot of good bands today.
Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
Any track of Slowdive's Souvlaki album would be nice. "40 days or "Machine Gun.
Q: What are your plans for the future?
Dave Allison from Custom Made Music (CMM Label) is supporting and helping us with "Goodbye stars (daylight is coming)" nowadays, but we should work hard and try to finish a good album in 2016. We don´t care much about what is coming afterwards: we just enjoy the process of creation.
Q: Any parting words?
Nice to meet you, This is 7TS and we hope to see you all at Sao Paolo
Thank you for reading us and above all, listening to us.
