See How They Run with whenyoung - An Interview

See How They Run / Show Me How é o single de estreia dos ingleses do whenyoung, isso mesmo tudo em letras minusculas, e já de começo, o TBTCI aconselha, aumente o som.

As músicas canções soam como se o Blondie fosse uma guitar band noventista com cheio dos nossos tempos.

Modernos, sexys, barulhentos, grudentos e altamente, sim altamente pops. Impossível dizer se Se How They Run é mais poderosa que Show Me How ou vice versa, ambas te pegam de jeito.

Uma estreia daquelas que se o mundo dos bons sons quiser, o whenyoung pode estourar em todas as rádios, pena que os tempos que vivemos são outros, caso contrário, já estariam nas capas de todas as publicações mundo afora.

Deliciosamente viciante.

***** Interview with whenyoung *****

Q. When did whenyoung start? Tell us about the history...
We started playing together late last year. We were writing lots of songs and we wanted to start recording them to document all our work. We haven't played the songs live yet so we're really excited about doing that.

Q: Who are your influences?
We have so many musical influences but I think the most prominent, mutual ones would be The Velvet Underground, Blondie, Yeahs Yeahs Yeahs, Television, No Doubt. We love pop music too like Rhianna is fab.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
The Velvet Underground and Nico
Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
Blondie - Parallel Lines
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Fever To Tell
Patti Smith - Horses

Q. How do you feel playing live?
We haven't played live yet. Our first show will be at The Alternative Great Escape on the 19th May in Brighton. We're really excited to play the songs for a crowd!

Q. How do you describe whenyoung sounds?
Alternative pop. Our songs are really catchy, energetic, they sound cheerful but lyrically they have an edge to them.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
We recorded our single "See How They Run" with two different producers which was really interesting for us as we got to see how different people work with sounds. We're really happy with the end result.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
Listening to Cullen Omori at the moment and Christine and the Queens.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
I'd love to cover Pablo Picasso by The Modern Lovers

Q: What are your plans for the future?
We are going to be playing lots of gigs and hopefully get to tour our music. We hope to release another single later on in the year.

Q: Any parting words?
Parting is such sweet sorrow
