Seance with Tangible Rays - An Interview

Já no primeiro dia de 2017 deu pra perceber que o ano promete. 

Cortesia do enigmático Tangible Rays, e seu segundo álbum, "Seance", que como disse, foi lançado nos primeiros minutos deste ano.

Um petardo que vai fritando acordes e sonhos a cada canção. Um poderoso e barulhento mix entre MBV e Astrobrite, com doses caprichadas de psicodelismo.

Com "Seance" o Tangible Rays disse feliz ano novo em decibéis elevados. Ouça no volume máximo.

Feliz 2017!!

***** Interview with Tangible Rays *****

Q. When did Tangible Rays start? Tell us about the history...
Tangible Rays started out in the winter of 2014 as a band that only existed in my head, called Grow House. I originally set out to make really noisy, harsh, blurry guitar oriented pop. It was around this time that I recorded about 9 or 10 songs on an old Tascam Porta02 that was literally held together by duct tape. That material became my first LP, Grow House. Thankfully I have acquired better recording equipment since then. I later changed the name to Tangible Rays, which is actually a secret anagram..

Q: Who are your influences?
Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd, Brian Wilson, Kevin Shields, 1960's psychedelic rock/sunshine pop

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
5. Astrobrite - Crush
4. Yellow Balloon - Yellow Balloon
3. My Bloody Valentine - Loveless
2. Pink Floyd - The Piper at the Gates of Dawn
1. The Beach Boys - SMiLE

Q. How do you feel playing live?
It's great. I love it.

Q. How do you describe Tangible Rays sounds?
Loud. Energetic. Blurry and melodic.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
It usually starts out with a melody, and I structure chords around it. It all kind of falls into place after that. I record everything myself in my home studio.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
Japanese Breakfast, Pinkshinyultrablast, Hoops, Daguerreotype, Kero Kero Bonito.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
I think it would be really fun to cover Here Today by The Beach Boys

Q: What are your plans for the future?
Keep writing songs, record new material, play shows.

Q: Any parting words?
TBTCI is one of my favorite blogs. We should do this again sometime.
