El Grand Final with Whyme - An Interview

Dreampop experimental diretamente do México. Pitadas de Radio Dept. e uma certa dosagem de Mogwai só que ao invés de guitarras e os famigerados crescendos característicos deles o Whyme se utiliza de um maciço e colossal uso de synths.

Em sua essência o Whyme é dançante sem deixar de soar cerebral, é dreampop introspectivo para embalar sonhos bem acompanhados.

***** Interview with Whyme *****

Q. When did Whyme start? tell us about the history.
In 2005. I was part of a band of hardcore called Valerie and when I'm trying to make songs for the band I noticed I was creating different sounds so I decided to make my own music, All music in beginning was made by software, recently im working with guitars and bass but 80% are still made by software. I published 3 LP's and many EP's, in my facebook page you can download it for free. Fun fact, many people think Whyme is a "band", actually all music played, recorded and edited is only by me.

Q: Who are your influences?
I have many influences in my life, my dad listened pink Floyd and Alan parsons project, maybe it's the reason that I love pads, synths, and atmosphere and long tracks, but bands as MUM, My Bloody Valentine, The Gathering, Mogwai, God is and Astronaut.

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
How to measure a planet? - The Gathering
Happy Songs for Happy People - Mogwai
Animals - Pink Floyd
Before The Dawn Heal Us - M83
White Pony - Deftones

Q. How do you feel playing live?
Me as Whyme only played one time in life. Was in a theatre in 2008 and it was amazing.

Q. How do you describe Whyme sounds?
You can find low, fast, angry and sad rythms always in same track, when friends and people describe whyme, opinions are very different. I really love to say is a honest music, i think is like a soundtrack of your everyday, no matter how you feel in a specific moment.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
I try to make music until I feel it's necessary to make it. Always I start with drums, then guitars to make a structure and work above that. I love make this thru the night, is good to think and you have much time without distractions.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
Recently i discovered Jennie Vee and her voice is a blowmind, Spying is a hymn!... pinkshinyultrablast are other incredible band, i love it. i need to say im a big fan of local bands, and The Fi Fai Funkers are a great band of my local town, sounds great.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
The Gathering, always when i need some inspiration, Gathering appears in my playlist. So i think would be awesome make a cover of them, i love long tracks, Specially and definetly would be "Travel". is a masterpiece.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
Recently im working with other people to make a show in my local town for September or October, we're thinking in some Interactive show, many ideas yet, but i think it will be awesome for Whyme and other bands.

Q: Any parting words?
Thanks for Sharing Whyme music, is cool to be part of your project and your work is amazing, i really appreciate your interest and thanks again for all incredible support.
