Interview with NONN

O sueco, Christian Eldefors é conhecido nos meios ácidos do psych moderno por conta de sua banda, o The Orange Revival, que grava através da mecca do estilo mundial, a Fuzz Club Records.

Mas, os ares frios e gélidos da Suécia, certamente devem ter guiado Christian para aventurar-se por outras batidas, muito mais sombrias das que sua banda principal passeia.

E assim surgiu o NONN, com Christian encabeçando uma trupe de freaks que agora, buscam referências na escuridão melancólica do pós punk. Mas o NONN vai além, somado aos synths minimalistas, os caras inserem batidas krautianas e toques de acidez, o que gera um resultado ainda mais sombrio e caótico.

O debute deles nasceu ano passado, também via Fuzz Club, e é um convite a regressão, é facilmente possível ao ouvir o disco se sentir na Londres dos 80´s, ou Berlin, ou São Paulo e seus porões escuros.

Esqueça as flores e as cores, aqui, a única coisa que você achará é sombras, assim é o NONN.


***** Interview with NONN *****

Q. When did NONN begin? Tell us about the history...
It began back in 2015. I moved down to Stockholm for a while. And rented an apartment with a small studio in it. There I worked on sounds without any plans on a new project or album. But by the time I moved out I had pretty much everything done on what become NONNs debut album. But it took until spring 2017 before anyone heard it.

Q: Who are your influences?
Don't know really it can come from wherever. But mostly it's from all the talented and creative people around me. When you see or hear people make great thing that gets me inspired to make thing on my own.

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
Thats a hard one, lets make a list of album we in the band listen to at the moment:

Amen Dunes – Freedom
Suuns – Felt
Taylor deupree & Marcus Fischer - Twine
Dope Lemon – Honey Bones
Alabama shakes - sound & color

Q. How do you feel playing live?
At first I never thought I would play live with this project. But when I got great people joining me, Hannes Nyling and my brother Alexander, then it felt good. They are so talented so they made it easy for me. Now I really like it, and I love to travel, so that great!

Q. How would you describe NONN sounds?
I say its quite dark but still melodic. It's all about a feeling. We are all listening to so uch different type of music, and no one listen to the kind of music we end up making really. We just trying do make something that feels new and interesting to us, its all really spontanius.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
As I said its spontanius, for the first record I was alone, just trying to find a sound that feelt interesting to me. I had no idea of what I was doing, and that was a very fun process. For this new album we are making now, we are the 3 of us. And it usually starts with an idea for a beat, when that is set you kind of fast get a feeling on where the song needs to go.

I like to write as we go, build the song bit by bit. When it feels right, then it is a fast process.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
I don't listen to that much music. But I can recommend my friends great bands: Medistation, Lejonsläktet, Vulture Vulture, Dead Vibrations

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
Oh I have no idea. We are playing this The Cure night soon, thats the first cover we will ever do.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
We are finishing up our second album right now. Then we are touring again this fall.

Q: Any parting words?
Hope to see you all soon!
