Pure with Glace - An Interview

Marc-Olivier Theriault é o criador e escultor das peças climáticas, hipnóticas e envolventes do Glace.

"Pure" é o único registro até o momento do canadense, e nome mais adequado, impossível, "Pure" exala beleza, candura e sugere um aconchegante clima introspectivo para o ouvinte.

Uma estreia de rara beleza concebida pelo Glace.

***** Interview with Glace *****

Q: When did Glace start?
Glace officialy started last year when I uploaded music on Bandcamp.

Q: Who are your influences?
I have many influences but I'll try to name the main ones. I'm a huge fan of shoegaze bands from the 90's like Slowdive, MBV, Curve, Lush, Ride, Chapterhouse, Pale Saints, Catherine Wheel, etc. I also like the darker stuff of The Cure and Cocteau Twins. I listen to a lot of different genres but I'm really into dream pop, jangle pop,alternative and surf rock.

Q: Make a list of 5 albums of all time
Disintegration, Oshin, Bleach, Nevermind

Q: How do you feel playing live?
I've only played one show so I guess I was shy.

Q: How do you describe Glace sounds?
Cold, dreamy, glow, dark, slow, fast,

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs
I usualy begin with the drums. After I play a guitar track 1 on it and then, add a guitar track 2 over it. Finally, I add synth and voice if I think it is necessary.

Q: Wich new bands do you recommend?
There are many but to name only a few I would say Diiv, Orchin, Golden Graves, Leave The Planet, Be Forest and Castlebeat. If you like shoegaze, there are some very good australian bands that you should check out like Contrast, Bloohounds On My Trail, Black Ryder, Miniatures, Blush Response, Lowtide, Kigo, Luna Ghost.

Q: Wich band would you love to make a cover version of?
I don't think I would make a cover because it is almost impossible to do justice to the original song.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
I will continue to record new music. There will be a new single out soon too. I'm aiming for a release in december.

Q: Any parting words?
Thank you for for your time.
