Wire City with Caskets Filled With Flowers - An Interview

Destroços e barulhos noventistas em doses cavalares é o que os canadenses do Caskets Filled With Flowers despejam em nossas cabeças através do poderoso debute deles.

"Wire City" é o nome da pedrada. Não há momento de trégua durante a audição das dez chineladas na orelha, talvez somente a belíssima "Honey Eyes" traga uma certa paz.

Discaço pra ouvir alto e sair pra rua.

***** Interview with Caskets Filled With Flowers *****

Q. When did Caskets Filled With Flowers start? Tell us about the history...
A. It started as just Jon and Jake, we both wanted to start a project different from the bands we were in at the time. We recorded some songs on a tape player, and eventually decided we wanted a drummer. We met Haley through that drummer, and recorded our demo under the name Kaneda. We went through a few rotations of drummers and a guitarist, but now the lineup couldn't be better.

Q: Who are your influences?
A. Some of our notable influences would have to be Mansions, The Hotelier, Swearin', probably Tigers Jaw? Our local music scene is killer here in MA, so a lot of our influence comes from the bands around us for sure.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
A. This is a hard one,
Pinkerton by Weezer,
Underdrawing for Three Forms Of Unhappiness at The State Of Existence by My Dead Girlfriend, Hot Fuss by The Killers,
XO by Elliott Smith,
S/T by Spirit of The Beehive

Q. How do you feel playing live?
A. We all feel different I suppose. Playing live is one of our favorite parts about being a band, we are able to put much more energy into our songs. After our sets, we are all pretty tired.

Q. How do you describe Caskets Filled With Flowers sounds?
A. The best way to describe our sound would just be pop. As much as we try and look deep into sounds we fit in, slacker pop, indie, emo, dream pop, we end up getting too overwhelmed with what our sound actually is. To make it easy for everyone, we are a just a pop band.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
A. We record all our songs ourselves, so sometimes songs are written before and sometimes we write them in studio. Almost all of our EP Sleep Culture was written in studio.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
A. New locals that are killing it right now, Old Soul, Modern Lives, 7 Birches, Anyone Anyway, Daephne, Dios Trio, Mallcops, Settler, Animal Flag, Jamboree. All these bands KILL it, and most of the music is free!

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
A. Ryan wants to cover Take On Me really bad. We are looking to do a Paramore cover set one day, because why not?

Q: What are your plans for the future?
A. Our full length album is out the 15th of this month, and we are touring the east coast of the US this month as well. After that, we will be taking a break for a while to write new music!

Q: Any parting words?
A. Our album Wire City will be available for free on our bandcamp! Have a listen casketsfilledwithflowers.bandcamp.com and be kind to one another!
