Sunglasses During Night with Pure Confusion - An Interview

Seguindo a tradição do TBTCI em dar espaço e ajudar novas, excelentes e promissoras bandas, chegou a vez de aparecer por aqui, o Pure Confusion, banda da Eslováquia que recém soltou em sua página do Bandcamp suas primeiras demos.

E, eu diria que não se tratam de simplesmente demos, são quatro pancadas, ou marteladas sonoras, mesclando Nothing e Catherine Wheel, se é que isso é possível, sem contar a presença fantasmagórica do Pearl Jam com pitadas grunge.

Um belo cartão de visitas dos caras do Pure Confusion. Certamente ficaremos de olhos e ouvidos atentos.

***** Interview with Pure Confusion *****

Q. When did Pure Confusion start? Tell us about the history...
1. The whole idea of starting a band with different direction hit me when i was on my first hardcore show in Kosice. My friend Pali who later becomes this "mentor" person in my music life invited me. He is a member of the legendary Outcasst Crew and he showed me lot of different bands and ideas. With this impulse in my life and with my other friend, i build a studio and start making my first demos. Then , I started working on my vocals and after 5 months I recorded 4 demos. Teaching how to mix and master took me a lot of time but now you can hear my abilities. It’s not a pro sound ,but it’s what i can do right now with everything i know about it.

Q: Who are your influences?
2. I must say SUPERHEAVEN, strong sound, simple riffs, amazing result. FADE from Leeds, England they really hit me with their sound in a big way. I saw the last show of Fade on Snuggle fest and it was really inspiring. I was dancing the whole set. Literally i can’t stop moving when they play. NOTHING is the next band who gave me another perspective on music. I must say that their sound is like a wave and you just let take yourself in it. Definitely PEARL JAM but in a really strange and different way. They showed me how to enjoy music and really look deep in yourself and just write and write lyrics. Next is Narrow Head, really heavy riffs and amazing melancholic vibe.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
3. Ten by Pearl Jam
Slip by Quicksand
Ferment by Cathrine Wheel
Bug by Dinosaur Jr.
Hills End by DMA'S

Q. How do you feel playing live?
4. I’ve played live before with different bands but not with Pure Confusion.In the moment I’m just looking for musicians. I recorded whole demo all by myself. Demo was supposed to show my abilities and ideas and now it’s time to make EP or LP …we will see. But many interesting things are coming soon.

Q. How do you describe Pure Confusion sounds?
5. Mess that include joy filled with depression and on the top it.. is bacon

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
6. Process of recording was like many others but with one difference. My girlfriend was always in studio and she just checked every single note or chord or snare drum if it’s right.. it was really fun  hahahaha

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
7. Higher Power !!!, Out of Body, Violent Stomp good friends of mine from Sao Paolo also Bloomtrip amazing sound, Rapture, Prayer Chain, Bluesbraker from Kiev those riffs will get to your head, Rooftops from Moscow, Narrow Head, Nothing, Whirr, Cloakroom, Give-definetly, The Mites.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
8. So many comes to my mind, like Sheltered by Superheaven but one i really want is Souldestroyer by infamous UKHC band Broken Teeth that will be fun hahahahah

Q: What are your plans for the future?
9. Just play as much music as it’s possible. Get people together, make music, do shows ,do tours. Just really enjoy music in all spheres.

Q: Any parting words?
10. I just want to thank you for interview. I was really glad that i put my first demo out and the next day i found an email where stands that someone on the other side of the world listened to my music and actually liked it. Thank you very much and keep spreading music. Pure love.
