Sestra with Percolator - An Interview

Quando algo como o trio irlandês Percolator cruza seus tímpanos, é basicamente impossível ficar imune, não há meio termo, ou a pessoa simplesmente os detesta, ou, ao contrário, os caras tornam-se verdadeiros prediletos instantâneos, o TBTCI fica na segunda opção.

Uma esquizofrênica mistura de um certo pós punk bebendo na no wave, ou um art noise com cheiro krautiano, o adjetivo shoegaze, utilizado vez ou outra por algumas publicações acerca doo Percolator soa até engraçado, porque de shoegaze os caras não tem nada, talvez apenas os pedais hahahahaha.

"Sestra", o primeiro álbum dos caras, é esquisito, soa fora dos padrões normais, não se encaixa em basicamente nada, mas conforme os oito experimentos do disco vão passando, é inegável que o Percolator transcende gêneros, não a toa os caras já tocaram com gente do porte de NEU!, APTBS e This Heat, só pra citar algumas conexões na sonoridade dos caras.

"Sestra" e o Percolator são intrinsecamente freaks e viciantes.

***** Interview with Percolator *****

Q. When did Percolator start? Tell us about the history...
As the name may suggest, our water at 92 degrees Celsius filters slowly through a fine dark silt until a dripping gold-black emulsion is extracted. This enriches the morning time in our souls. forming our group, the sounds that we have come to make and unifies all of our personalities through musical expression. It has been a long process. Starting in 2007 when there were just 2, (Ian and Ellie), we went through several line-up changes, the sound changing and developing each time, until the unity was complete in 2012 when Spud joined.

Q: Who are your influences?
Anyone who is forward thinking in their approach to making music.

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
Circle - Pori
Slint - Spiderland
Ben Frost - By The Throat
The Necks - Sex
Staer - Staer

Q. How do you feel playing live?
We feel like Norse Gods, liberating the minds of the people. Those who once thought that all was well, we are freeing them from their repetitive day to day tasks and giroscope shopping sprees.
We love playing live. We didnt play as often as we would've liked before we released the album so this year has been liberating. It's been interesting to manipulate the songs from the album as a 3 -piece and make it work.

Q. How do you describe Percolator sounds?
We are very particular about our sounds. We understand the importance of creating space by being minimal and repetitive in our playing

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
We are lucky to have our own studio in which to tease out ideas that eventually form very long ideas that eventually form moderate length songs. It is a very long process.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
Hen Ogledd

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
This Heat - Horizontal Hold (Peel session version)

Q: What are your plans for the future?
We'll start recording new material this month with the plan of releasing an EP or an album, in mid to late 2018.

We are currently planning an EU tour for early 2018 which will take us through France, Germany, Holland and Poland, and more hopefully.

Q: Any parting words?
Bring us to Brazil
