Distance with Beachtones - An Interview

Se toda música "indie" soasse como o Beachtones certamente o termo não teria se tornado tão pejorativo nos dias de hoje.

Dreampop com trejeitos praianos, boas conexões com gente como Best Coast, The Drums, Wild Nothing, Alvvays, Beach Fossils e outros tantos, colocam o Beachtones nesse seleto grupo de preciosidades do indie sonhador atual.

Para ouvir contemplando a vida, sim ela é muita boa, acredite.

***** Interview with Beachtones *****

Q. When did beachtones start? Tell us about the history...
A: Well beachtones started about three years ago. I met some cool cats in high school and we all shared a similar interest in music and decided "hey we should start a band!" Later on we decided to do our own thing so I then decided to continue on to write my own to write new material. But am currently looking for a new lineup to hopefully start playing some shows with.

Q: Who are your influences?
A: I would have to say Wild nothing, Alvvays, Beach Fossils, Ride, Whirr, Diiv, Real Estate, there are so many.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
A: Hmmm. This is tricky. I would have to say *no particular order

1. Days - Real Estate
2. Peripheral Vision - Turnover
3. Every Beach House record (can't decide)
4. Murmur - REM
5. Gemini - Wild Nothing

Q. How do you feel playing live?
A: Words cannot describe how it feels to perform live. Especially when the crowd is super into it, it is just a wonderful feeling.

Q. How do you describe beachtones sounds?
A: I would have to describe beachtones sound to be mellow dream pop. Just a band you can kick back and watch a sunset to... with friends... and a coors.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
A: There is not a process necessarily, just whatever comes to heart at that moment in my life or if.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
A: I would have to recommend Hippo Campus, Circa Waves,Incan Abraham, Nic Hessler, Day Wave, and this really awesome group named JAWS from the UK. Really great music and all of their discography infests my record collection and iTunes library. Was also fortunate enough to meet some of these artists and they are really awesome people.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
A: Was actually planning to do a cover of R.E.M's "Radio Free Europe" seems like a really fun song and would go perfectly in our set!

Q: What are your plans for the future?
A: there are many plans for beachtones future. I hope to record our LP, get on a label to release it, and hopefully have the opportunity to have a tour and open for other cool bands!

Q: Any parting words?
Thank you very much for having us! Really excited for what is to hopefully come in the future.
