Away From Here with Post Attraction - An Interview

O quarteto Post Attraction de San Diego e auto intitula "Dream Punk", o que a bem da verdade é uma meia verdade, pois submetendo-se a audição de seu EP de estreia intitulado "EP" o que chegamos a conclusão é que o belo debute esta mais para um dream pós punk, nítidas conexões com Chameleons, Cure mixadas com o mais puro e cristalino dreampop.

Um belíssimo cartão de visitas do Post Attraction.

***** Interview with Post Attraction *****

Q. When did Post Attraction start? Tell us about the history...
A: It all began when our singer and guitarist, Richard, met our drummer, Luis, while playing local shows in previous bands. With similar musical tastes and a lot of experience in the San Diego music scene, they soon started jamming out on their spare time and recording music with local producer and friend, Kenji. The band had been looking for a bassist, so I (Brandon) took a chance and auditioned. I grew up with Richard on Guam and we had history playing together in a punk band in high school. As we continued to work with Kenji, he liked the music so much he ended up joining the band, taking up keys and guitar.

Q: Who are your influences?
A: Joy Division, The Cure, The Smiths, My Bloody Valentine, Depeche Mode, Sisters of Mercy, Soda Stereo, Chameleons, alcohol and marijuana
