Seven with Backwarmer - An Interview

Indie rock classudo, barulhento e explosivo, como aos velhos tempos.

Assim pode ser devidamente resumido o que o quarteto da Georgia, Backwarmer propõe. Seja na estreia "Vinyl" de 2015 ou no mais recente, "Seven" lançado em junho agora.

Tem de pouco tudo no som dos caras, de rock raivoso garageiro e dançante, algo próximo a uma fusão do That Petrol Emotion com o Queens of The Stone Age com pitadas de barulheiras noventistas.

O fato é que no caldeirão sonoro do Backwarmer, tudo vira ingrediente para levantar eu, você e qualquer um da cadeira e mexer a bunda.

Escute alto.

***** Interview with Backwarmer *****

Q. When did Backwarmer start? Tell us about the history...
● It all started in 2013, we were hanging out a lot at our friends place, one day we got bored and started playing around together. After 2 studio albums and 1 single - here we are. The very first song we wrote together as a band was "900". It felt right. We knew we had some chemistry. Backwarmer is a perfect ballance of hard work and laziness.

Q: Who are your influences?
●Anything from bee gees to Meshuggah.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
●Depends on the mood actually. Right now? Old school stuff comes to the head
emerson lake and palmer - tarcus
david bowie - blackstar
blue oyster cult - agents of fortune
nine inch nails - downward spiral
aphex twin - selected ambient works 85-92

Q. How do you feel playing live?
● It's the greatest feeling in the world even when it's not...

Q. How do you describe Backwarmer sounds?
●Backwarmer sounds heavy and fuzzy, yet you can shake your ass and dance to it. It should definitely be experienced Live.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
● Very overwhelming, sometimes harder than it should be for us. During the recording process you really evaluate your potential and your abilities. It's a challenge for every band. If it's not - they should not be recording...

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
● Georgian music scene is supercool - Psychonaut 4, Moku Moku, the black marrows, Lady Heroine... it's genuine.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
● Tough question 😀😀bonny m, bee gees, george michael, donna summer , nirvana , alice in chains... It's more about the songs that you want to recreate and make your own.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
● Plans for future ? well we have to get our shit together and write new songs. The second album really drained some of us. It was a very emotional proces. We're still trying to escape from that limbo.

Q: Any parting words?
● If you cannot play, shut up and play motherfucker.
