Northern Islands (Hideout) with Noise Nebula - An Interview

O quinteto madrilenho Noise Nebula chega para novamente demonstrar o quão fértil esta o território espanhol.

Todavia algumas diferenças são notadas desde os primeiros momentos do mais recente trabalho dos caras, "Northern Islands (Hideout)", a primeira e fundamental é o fato deles não comporem suas densas viagens em seu idioma nativo, ao contrário de conterrâneos como Linda Guilala, Apartamentos Acapulco, Galaxina, entre outros, o Noise Nebula busca na linguagem universal, o inglês claro, ressoar em conjunto com o intrínseco emaranhado de guitarras, ora estridente, já em outras, melódico e cantarolável.

Resumidamente o Noise Nebula se alimenta e expurga doses cavalares de seu shoegaze em uma rotação desaceleradamente esfumaçada.

Muito em breve soltarão seu primeiro álbum, mas pelos três, já dá pra ter a real noção do tamanho do potencial dos caras., é ficar de olhos e ouvidos atentos, enquanto isso, dê play em "Northern Islands (Hideout)" e boa viagem.

***** Interview with Noise Nebula *****

Q. When did Noise Nebula start? Tell us about the history...
The project started in October 2013 in Madrid, Spain and since then we have released 3 EPs, being the last one (Northern Islands (Hideout), 2016) probably the most important for us because we got to record part of it in Avast Recording Co. studios in Seattle, thanks to Converse.

The band is formed, after several line-up changes, by three guitars, one bass and a drummer (aging around from 21 to 23) with two of us singing. We know each other mainly because we share a lot of interests in music.

Now we’re fully active, playing as much concerts as we can, conceiving our first LP and trying to end up our college degrees.

Q: Who are your influences?
We listen to a lot of different genres and enjoy exotic sounds, so we try to use different kind of textures and elements even they might not have to get that much in common with shoegazing, but we identify our sound with this genre the most because of the shoes and our gazes to them.

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
Seam - The Problem With Me
Nueva Vulcano - Los Peces de Colores
Parquet Courts - Light Up Gold
Rock Bottom - Robert Wyyat
The Magnetic Fields - 69 Love Songs

Q. How do you feel playing live?
Comfortable even with just 2 people in the crowd.

Q. How do you describe Noise Nebula sounds?
It’s like you painting with your fingers on a new LCD screen TV..

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
Normally we try to do it as a live performance except for the vocals, which are recorded later, so we have to measure each song before getting to the studio to try to preserve the essence of rehearsals. In the next recordings we want to invest more time in the studio and try to come up with new ideas for the songs there.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
Shame, First Breath After Coma, and from Spain, Cala Vento, Lukiek, and RRUCCULLA

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
Radiohead / Yo La Tengo

Q: What are your plans for the future?
Recording new tunes, writing as much as we can and starting to give shape to what will be our first LP.

We would like to release a few songs before it, which will be recorded in the days of the northern hemisphere summer and released when cold comes back.

Q: Any parting words?
Say no to slogans
