Holidays with Nilein - An Interview

Dreampop ensolarado, honesto e apaixonante, essa é a receita do single de estreia dos indianos, sim, você leu corretamente, indianos do Nilein.

Fazendo conexões com The Drums, Best Coast, Beach Fossils e outros expoentes do novo indie sonhador, o Nilein não deixa absolutamente nada a desejar a seus "primos" mais conhecidos, pelo contrário, a melodiosa combinação de sonhos com a brisa do mar deixa uma leveza pairando pelo ambiente.

Para ouvir bem acompanhado, é claro.

***** Interview with Nilein *****

Q. . When did Nilein start? Tell us about the history...
Q1 The four of us had been making music together even before Nilein was born. This project took form about two months back and has been blossoming since. We have our own sort of daily evening mujlises which make part and parcel of our musical lives.

Q: Who are your influences?
Q2 Each of us are influenced by very different kinds of music. From classical to electronic, there's all kinds of genres we're humming to, screaming to and crying to.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
Q3 Here's a list of 5 very varied albums(in no particular order) we'll definitely be vouching for:
1. Beach Fossils - What A Pleasure EP
2. Foster The People - Torches
3. Sky Sailing - An Airplane Carried Me to Bed.
4. Gotye - Making Mirrors
5. Porter Robinson - Worlds

Q. How do you feel playing live?
Q4 We haven't played live yet. But we'd definitely want to. We're currently focussing more on making music than on playing music.

Q. How do you describeNilein sounds?
Q5 Nilein's sounds can be best described as - Mirthful, euphoric and yet melancholic.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
Q6 Our setup is pretty minimal actually, we don't even have a studio, it's just a computer and us, we don't even use a proper condenser microphone, we record our vocals into a mobile phone and run them through guitar pedals. That's it basically.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
Q7 Well the English music scene is pretty dull here in India, and none of the new bands excites us.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
Q8 We don't really make cover versions.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
Q9 We are looking forward to finishing and releasing our LP. And we can't contain our excitement.

Q: Any parting words?
Q10 Thank you for this opportunity. We're really grateful.
