Album with The Sun Days - An Interview

Acaba de vir ao mundo o debute dos suecos do The Sun Days. "Album" é o nome da pepita, um rara preciosidade do mais belo e elegante exemplo de que fazer música pop ainda vale, e vale muito a pena.

O pop perfeito em oito canções ensolaradas e cativantes, vocais belos e cristalinos realçam ainda mais a beleza e a doce elegância do The Sun Days.

Para dias ensolarados e preferencialmente estando bem acompanhado.

***** Interview with The Sun Days *****

Q. When did The Sun Days start? Tell us about the history...
-The Sun Days started when i sat around in my room listening to Diiv. I got some sudden inspiration and jumped into the studio made a couple of demos. Then i asked the others if they wanted to start a band with me and not long after that we released our first single.

Q: Who are your influences?
Beatles, Ventures and good Gothenburg pop bands from the 90's until now.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
-I'm not a big fan of making favorites but i'll give you five good ones.
1. Until We're Dead by Star Fucking Hipsters
2. Peach Kelli Pop by Peach Kelli Pop
3. Stuck in the never ending now by Strawberry Whiplash
4. No Gods / No Managers by Choking Victim
5. Abandon all life by Nails

Q. How do you feel playing live?
-We've said no to most bookings i think. I both love and hate it. I'm always really drunk and i always make the most mistakes on stage. I have a problem being looked at. Whenever we do play live we tend to have a great time but it needs to be the right set and setting for us to actually take an offer. Our release party was a complete disaster. The two later gigs were great! I'm always really proud of the others. I like the things surrounding the gig more than actually playing. Packing, going in the car, sound checking, getting free beer, meeting fans etc.

Q. How do you describe The Sun Days sounds?
-Perfect pop.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs?
-Basically me and the drummer, Erik, has been doing most of the recording. We always change the songs here and there whenever we go into the studio to get the best out of them. For the album, we went to Kalle Von Hall from Bad Cash Quartet (great fucking band) to record vocals. Mixing was done by Hans Olsson. Great dudes!

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
-Oh shit. Ain't many out there as i see it. Our lovely siblings Agent Blå is definitely one to keep an eye on. But yeah, sorry. I can't really give you anything else on that point.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
-Dreamphone by Peach Kelly Pop is one for me personally. Best song ever!

Q: What are your plans for the future?
-We're talking about making one last gig together as a band. We'll se what happens, but right now that's how it looks for us as a group.

Q: Any parting words?
1. Fuck the police. Fuck the state. Stand up for your rights and demand the ones you should but don't already have.
2. This interview is solely answered by Joe and does not necessarily mirror the opinions and thoughts of the other members.
3. Thanks for your interest. How lovely to hear that you like our music!
