Angst with Dress - An Interview

Angst é o segundo ep dos alemães do Dress.

Segundo ep pois os caras estavam a quatro meses esperando a gravadora deles soltar o álbum e isso não aconteceu, dai por contra própria resolveram soltar o EP, coisas da prostituída indústria fonográfica, mesmo a independente diga-se de passagem.

Angst segue a orientação sonora de seu antecessor, o homônimo Dress, shoegaze com area soturnos, guitarras antas e densas beirando sempre o limite do barulho e o ensurdecedor.

Grande banda.

***** Interview with Dress *****

Q. When did Dress start? Tell us about the history...
A: We started in late October 2013 and went through a couple of line-up changes. We were practising very hard at that time and played our first show in May 2014. We then recorded our first EP „Dress“ and played a couple of more shows. At the beginning of 2015 we recorded our second EP „Angst“ and now we’re here.

Q: Who are your influences?
A: We obviously have a lot of Shoegaze and Dream-pop influences. Slowdive, MBV, Ride (to name the obvious ones) but also a lot of newer acts like Diiv, Wild Nothing, Cheatahs, … (just to name a few). We also do like the new Turnover and Title Fight record. There are too many good bands to mention. The list could go on and on

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
A: No particular order
1. Michael Jackson - Thriller
2. Diiv - Oshin
3. Tokyo Shoegazer - Crystallize
4. The Ataris - So Long Astoria
5. Nirvana - Nevermind

Q. How do you feel playing live?
A: Playing live is always fun and it’s even better when the live sound is good. It’s always kind of annoying when you try to put on a great show and it gets ruined by the sound guy. Besides that we really enjoy being on the road, meeting new people, seeing new places.

Q. How do you describe Dress sounds?
A: Distorted and delayed guitars drowned in reverb.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
A: Either me (Tom) or Konstantin has an idea with which we enter the practice space and then we’re just sorta develop the song from scratch. If we’re done with all the arranging and stuff we usually record demos on our own and then enter the studio to lay everything down.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
A: Check out Pinkshinyultrablast or if you haven’t heard of Air Formation (we really doubt that) you should also check them out as well.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
A: Actually we did cover Beach Fossils’ Clash The Truth and Angus and Julia Stones’ Big Jet Plane at our live shows for quite some time.

Q: What´s the plans for future....
A: We’re currently writing new songs because we want to start recording our first album next year. There will be other updates very soon but it’s too early to talk about that right now. There are new things to come. Keep checking back.

Q: Any parting words Cheers!
A: Thanks for having us. We hope to play South America someday. Laters.
