Psychoblue with Radiate Youth - An Interview

Repetições em looping, melancolia, tristeza, alucinações, tudo transportado para o espectro sonoro.

Muito de Sonic Boom, outro tanto de experimentações psicodélicas diversas, e um certo lirismo herdado de Elliot Smith. Assim Troy Medina conduz seu primeiro trabalho, o introspectivamente freak "Psychoblue". Canções cantaroláveis tomam contornos esquizofrênicos, que despretensiosamente vão se entrelaçando por entre vinhetas, e devaneios diversos.

O Radiate Youth é a música pop ao avesso.

***** Interview with Radiate Youth *****

Q. When did Radiated Youth begin?
I have been tampering with music since I was 13 just figuring out how to play and write songs. I’d say that’s when my obsession began. I started Radiated Youth in 2015 I used to go by a different name that was Charcoal. I used that name in high school.

Q: Who are your influences?
The Cure, Sonic Youth, The Beatles, Elliott Smith, My Bloody Valentine, Spacemen 3, Slowdive, Radiohead, A Place To Bury Strangers

1. The Cure - Disintegration
2. Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation

5. My Bloody Valentine - Loveless

Q. How do you feel playing live?
I feel like a different person like the world doesn’t faze or scare me.

Q. How do you describe Radiated Youth sounds?
I’d say they are pop songs drenched in noise and sadness.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
I usually start with a feeling that turns into an idea that turns into a melody. Once I have the melody or idea it’s easier to put the song together and figure out the emotion I’m trying to capture. I usually have lyrics or melody from there I add drums and synth. Then layer my guitar and vocals.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Innerwave, Thee Commons, The Buttertones, King Tuff, Franky Flowers, Car Seat Headrest, Angel Olsen, La Luz, Mild High Club, Pond

I’d love to make a cover of a spacemen 3 song called hey man. Been working on that for awhile.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
To keep growing as a musician and keep making music until the day I can’t create anymore.

Q: Any parting words?
Create art and share love with the world. No human is illegal or worthless. Thank you for interviewing me. Cheers and positivity to everyone that needs it.
