Age of New Life with Pullo - An Interview

Há exato um mês atrás o quarteto da Indonésia, Pullo, após seu single de estreia, lançou seu primeiro EP. "Age of New Life" vai completamente ao lado oposto das bandas asiáticas, que usualmente bebem em fontes de dreampop o shoegaze, o que no caso do Pullo não existe nem de longe qualquer vestígio sonoro de sonhos ou fritações viajantes, o negócio dos caras é pós punk ríspido, duro, sombrio, sem nenhum tipo de atmosfera luminosa.

Fazendo conexões com Killing Joke, Modern English e afins, os caras se distanciam até mesmo das comparações óbvias como Joy Division entre outros, aqui, nem a melancolia tem espaço.

O Pullo, é o lado B do pós punk sendo revisitado e atualizado.

***** Interview with Pullo *****

Q. When did Pullo start? Tell us about the history...
A. Pullo started in the middle of October 2016 by Rally and Gavin after sharing some Post-Punk and Deathrock music together and starting to make a song called "Strained". After we record the song we realize that we need another person to play live so we recruit our friends Faiz and Ranggi to fill up the band.

Screaming Lord Sutch - Dracula's Daughter
King Krule - 6 Feet Beneath The Moon
Cocteau Twins - Heaven or Las Vegas

Q. How do you feel playing live?
A. Normally we play faster tempo when playing live, more energy and we kinda like it. We prefer a small private gigs than a big one, cos we think the crowd are more enjoying us at a small gigs since we are close to them.

Q. How do you describe Pullo sounds?
A. Imagine if you are in a big dark house somewhere you don't know and there is a sociopath hunting for you there, when you see them face to face that is exactly the time to play Pullo songs, dark and thrilling.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
A. We just basically make the song and go to our studio with our director and record it. Usually we make some new input of the song at the studio.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
A. Drab Majesty, Nadine Shah (don't really know if they are "new" but we just found them last year lol)
