Reflections with Dead VIbrations - An Interview

Vamos ser curtos e grossos, dia 12 de Agosto vem ao mundo o EP de estreia dos suecos sônicos do Dead Vibrations, intitulado "Reflections".

Uma verdadeira pedrada bem no centro da mente. Adicione os elementos BJM, B.R.M.C. e Telescopes, sincopados, único e exclusivamente para gerar um massacre psicodelicamente sônico, freak e brutal, destroçando neurônios e o que mais estiver pulsando dentro de você.

Música barulhenta, enérgica e perigosa, do jeito que precisa ser.

Olhos e ouvidos atentos ao Dead Vibrations, e faça um favor, escuta no volume máximo.

***** Interview with Dead Vibrations *****

Q. When did Dead Vibrations start? Tell us about the history.
Christian started Dead Vibrations early January 2015. A few months later Elmer (Bass), Olov (Guitar) & Josefin (Drums) joined and the puzzle was complete. After releasing our first single and video for ”Reflections” we got a New York-based record label; Echo Drug Recordings. And now we´re releasing our 4 song debut EP entitled ’Reflections’.

Q. Who are your influences?
(Christian) I try to make my list short..I love the early 90s shoegaze scene and when i started making
music i was a lot into 60s Garage.

(Josefin) Mars Volta, Warpaint, Polica, Björk, Föllakzoid & PJ Harvey.

(Olov) I just want to have the same vibe that the music my brother listen
to in the early 90’s had. Mostly rock, shoe gaze and swedish indie.

(Elmer) Timo in Uran.

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time.
Methodrone - The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Rise And Fall - Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars
Deloused In The Comatorium - MarsVolta
Alive! - Kiss

Q. How do you feel playing live?
(Elmer) I try to feel the energy in the music and move with it. Also i try not to fuck up playing the songs and to not fall over.

(Josefin) When i’m playing live it’s a mixture of feeling nervous and euphoric.

(Olov) 3 hours of panic 30 minutes of awesome.
(Christian) If the soundcheck turns out good then amazing. If not, still amazing.

Q. How do you describe Dead Vibrations sounds?
(Christian) After playing at Copenhagen Psych Fest Winter Edition a guy told us we sounded like a Dark Party. "Dark Party" pretty funny description….

Q. Tell us about the process of recording the songs?
(Christian) We always want to get in the right state of mind before recording. After pressing rec we try to make magic.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
(Josefin) I recommend Blonde Bunny from London. They are something unique, and to see them live was a magical experience.

(Christian) We Are Wood. Amazing music from Gothenburg!.

(Elmer) Right now i recommend the band Nots, Awesome synthesizer driven punk.

(Olov) Last but not least Kill West from the Echo Drug Recordings family!

Q. Which band would you love to make a cover version of?
We love to make 4 cover versions!
Pitch the baby by Cocteau Twins
One of Ariel Pink’s songs
Suicide - Keep your dreams
