Okay with Wy - An Interview

O duo sueco Ebba e Michel ou se você preferir, e deve, Wy, debutaram no final de outubro com um álbum absolutamente envolvente, evocando Portishead, Angel Olsen e Majical Cloudz.

Com o singelo título de "Okay", o álbum transpira uma certa nostalgia, uma doce saudade parecesse pairar sobre as canções. Talvez seja pela entonação vocal de Ebba, talvez pela instrumentação épica, talvez, simplesmente porque, o Wy soa eloquentemente grandioso.

O Wy, é um verdadeiro colírio para mente.

***** Interview with Wy *****

Q. When did Wy start? Tell us about the history...
We met in 2009 and were both really into playing music. We have had multiple bands but Wy started in 2015 when we moved to Malmö together. We recorded “In Bloom” in our first apartment and then we just kind of left it lying. When we moved to Stockholm in 2016 Ebba had an internship at a major record label and that kind of inspired us to write more songs so we started writing our EP. In about a month we were signed to an indie label and released our first single.

Q: Who are your influences?
We listen to a lot of emo, pop and singer-songwriters. We’re both most inspired by artists who can evoke a feeling, like Foxing, Angel Olsen and Majical Cloudz.

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
Mitski - Puberty 2
My Bloody Valentine - Loveless
Angel Olsen - Half Way Home
Mothers - When You Walk a Long Distance You Are Tired
Japanese Breakfast - Soft Sounds From Another Planet

Q. How do you feel playing live?
Amazing! It’s our favourite thing.

Q. How do you describe Wy’s sound?
Emotional, nostalgic and hitting

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
Even though we’re mostly a great team we prefer to work separately from the start of a song. First we have to give each other time to add what we want, usually it’s drums and guitar for Michel and vocals for Ebba. When we have figured out the gist of the song we sit down together with it.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
Mothers, Chastity Belt, Owen Rabbit

Q: Which band would you love to make a cover version of?
Majical Cloudz

Q: What are your plans for the future?

Q: Any parting words?
It gets better.
