Coasting with Invisible Days - An Interview

Delicioso guitar pop com aquele wall of sound e sensibilidade melódica que faria Phil Spector e os irmãos Reid abrirem sorrisos de ponta a ponta, com tudo devidamente equilibrado, sem nunca pender para o barulho ensurdecedor ou a calmaria praiana extrema, o trio do Brooklyn, Invisible Days soube e continua a dosar perfeitamente os dois lados da música pop que mais soam perfeitos na face da terra.

Declaradamente fãs de Lilys, o Invisible Days caminha com suas perfect noise pop songs, lançando singles, EPs e colhendo poucos mais entusiasmados admiradores ao redor do submundo dos bons sons.

Faça um favor para seu dia se tornar mais especial, dê play no último trabalho dos caras, o EP "Coasting" e sinta o frescor do barulho adocicado.

***** Interview with Invisible Days *****

Q. When did Invisible Days start? Tell us about the history...
A: We were actually all in a different band prior to Invisible Days called The Walkup based in Brooklyn, New York. We (Alex (Vocals/Bass), Sean (Vocals/Guitar) and Michael (Drums)) got tired of playing the kind of music we had been playing with that band so in 2009 we started a new band (Invisible Days) with a less poppy, more experimental noise guitar sound. We've put out 3 EPs 2 vinyl 7"s and 2 cassettes so far.

Q: Who are your influences?
A: We have lots, but some of the biggest are Lilys, My Bloody Valentine, Brian Jonestown Massacre and Deerhunter.

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
A: Lilys - In The Presence of Nothing,
Ride - Nowhere,
Deerhunter - Microcastle,
Beach Boys - Pet Sounds,
My Bloody Valentine - Loveless

Q. How do you feel playing live?
A: We love playing live. It's the best high ever and one of the best parts of being in a band.

Q. How do you describe Invisible Days sounds?
A: Noisy guitar rock with shoegaze influences and pop sensibilities.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
A: We've recorded a bunch of different ways, from having producers to recording everything ourselves and having someone else mix. When writing songs Sean and I (Alex) usually write on our own and then come to the band to flesh everything out. We'll usually play them out live a bunch and then when we feel they're done, record them.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
A: Not exactly new, but Kurt Vile and Ty Segall are some of my favs. Alvvays put out a great record last year. Also really into the new record "Awaken, My Love" by Childish Gambino.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
 A: We did a pretty cool cover of Lilys - February Fourteenth, it's on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVPUMED_fOU.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
A: Write, record and release new music. We just released a 5 song EP - Coasting. We'll be working on some new material in the near future.

Q: Any parting words?
A: Thanks for the interview and checking us out! Look out for more music from us in the future. https://invisibledays.bandcamp.com/
