Fun with deathlist - An Interview

O terceiro álbum do hoje, trio de Portland, deathlist, tem o irônico título de "Fun", o que de diversão, passa um pouco longe, salvo se seu conceito de diversão for as avessas, tal qual a banda o projeta.

Como uma terapia perigosa, a música do deathlist é crua, áspera e provocativa. Inserções de pós punk, art noise, ou um elo entre ambos, Jenny Logan, comanda o exorcismo sonoro.

Sob ares cinzentos e sombras, o deathlist transforma lamúrias em desespero, e melancolia em caos.

Pós punk em letras maiúsculas senhoras e senhores.

***** Interview with deathlist *****

Q. When did deathlist begin? Tell us about the history...
Deathlist started as a solo recording project in between tours with my other band, Summer Cannibals. After I released a demo tape in 2017, I got a live band and started performing around Portland and the west coast of the U.S.

Q: Who are your influences?
The Cure, Suicide, Joy Division...I really like post-punk and goth music, but I try to make it my own. I was also influenced by a lot of hardcore/metal bands like Neurosis and Botch.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
Neurosis - Times of Grace
Joy Division - Closer
Iggy Pop - The Idiot
The Cure - seventeen seconds
The Wipers - Youth of America

Q. How do you feel playing live?
I love playing live, it gives me a lot of energy. It is also very emotional for me, because my songs are very personal.

Q. How do you describe deathlist´s sounds?
I think I provide a female perspective on genres that were traditionally performed by men.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
I write everything in my bedroom on an acoustic guitar and then adapt them in the studio. I do a lot of experimentation to find sounds and beats, and I play every instrument on the records.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
Sweeping Exits, Maarquii, Savila. They're all new Portland bands I'm very into right now.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
The Wipers

Q: What are your plans for the future?
I'm going to keep making records! Writing music is like therapy for me, it keeps me sane and makes me a better person.

Q: Any parting words?
Thank you for listening to my music! I love hearing from fans so please feel free to reach out to me through my bandcamp page (deathlist.bandcamp.com) or my instagram @deathlisttt
