Say Hello with Nyre - An Interview

Psicodelia moderna é o que prega o trio de São Francisco Nyre.

"Say Hello" não é o último trabalho dos caras, mas serve perfeitamente como o cartão de visitas dos caras. Um hibrido de Tame Impala (na fase interessante) e Pink Floyd pós Barret.

O psicodelismo do Nyre não é cruel ou maldoso, tampouco alucinógeno, ao contrário, a verve psych dos caras é sutil, viajante mas sem desvios de caráter ou freaknices exorcizantes, tudo é dosado, sem exageros, feito sob medida para chegar ao grande público.

O ponto é, será que conseguirão? Só o tempo responderá.

***** Interview with Nyre *****

Q. When did Nyre start? Tell us about the history...
Honestly not really sure. We have been friends since preschool and some of us have been making music together since as far back as 2009 but the current nyre came together around 2016. We got the amps together and started playing shows. The ep was recorded in the middle of 2016 at my home in south san francisco.

Q: Who are your influences?
We have many influences. I can just name some of the strongest because it can get out of hand. Armenian church music, being isolated, mobb deep, the stooges, jimi hendrix experience, stanley kubrick, sergei parajanov, radiohead, tame impala, the kills, death grips, thee oh sees, early pink floyd, ruben hakhverdyan theres a lot but these are some of the strongest

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
This is really tough BUT
pink floyd - relics, its an old compilation but its so fucking good that it deserves to be on here seriously its amazing
pixies - doolittle
the stooges - the stooges,
the beatles - sgt pepper
death grips - exmilitary
tame impala - lonerism

Thats def not the best music in the world but when it comes to what we personally connect with these are it.

Q. How do you feel playing live?
Playing live is the ultimate release. Our live set is a bit more aggressive and stripped down compared to the recordings and that helps keep everything raw and in the moment.

Q. How do you describe Nyre´s sounds?
The recordings are short bursts of emotion. For the most part we like to keep it as simple as possible and straight to the point. As for the sound we like it to sound sureal but natural sounds pretty corny but best way I could describe it is I want it to feel like a parajanov film.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
Recording is done super quick. I (tigran) have a bunch of gear set up in my bedroom and I try my hardest to finish writing/recording everything the same day. We dont record as a band so I get to sit there in my own little world and record all the parts myself. Then usually at night I hit the guys up and we get really high and drive around listening to the song deciding if its good or not.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
Hmmmm we like this band from costa rica called las robertas

Aj davila is also really good

Honestly were so busy a lot of time we dont even get to hear new music so thats all I got for you sorry

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
I would love to cover the songs on the album relics by pink floyd.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
We plan on releasing our album sometime this year which will be very exciting. Come to our shows! we promise to give you an experience hah

Q: Any parting words?
Thanks for having us, sorry for the delay (lol) and hope to see you in Sao Paolo one day!
