Between Lights and Sky with Day of Nova - An Interview

O duo francês, Day of Nova, iniciado a dois anos atrás, debutou oficialmente nos primeiros dias de Fevereiro com "Between Lights and Sky".

Navegando por gélidas paisagens, guiados por synths metalizados. Algo pairando entre o synth e a cold wave.

Alguns destaques que indicam os dois lados dos caras, "Heaven Fake" é um synth electro feito sob medida para se jogar em alguma pista esfumaçada e contemplar a parede. Já a faixa título, indica o lado experimental e conceitual do duo.

Uma estreia instigante, que serve para ficar com olhos e ouvidos atentos.

***** Interview with Day of Nova *****

Q. When did Day of Nova begin? Tell us about the history...
The Day of Nova project began 2 years ago. With Olivier, we played together in the same band before. After the split of his band, we decided to play together because we have the same influences.

Q: Who are your influences? / Q. How do you describe Day of Nova´s sounds?
We like rock bands, as Biffy clyro (old album with lots of breaks), Foo fighters and we used to like some punk rock (Millencolin, Nofx, Green day, etc…) but for this project, we have 3 groups in reference : Bloc Party (first album), Peter Kernel and The million dead.

It’s our guide line. We have these sounds in head when we play.

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
For Seb : dEUS « the ideal crash », mud flow «Ryunosuke » , Breton « war room stories », Placebo «Without You I'm Nothing », Biffy Clyro « Infinity land »

For Olivier : Biffy Clyro « Black and skies », Nirvana « In utero », Peter Kernel « White death and black Heart », Deftones « White Poney », Radiohead « In rainbows »

Q. How do you feel playing live?
We like playing live. For the moment, we don’t play live with Day of Nova. We are working hard to play live very soon with our band. We spent all time to compose music and to record.

With our previous band, we played on great local scenes and it’s a pleasure to meet people and share our music with them.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
We record all the gig and after we listen back. We keep right parts and work with it after.

For lots of songs, first Seb finds bass line, drums and synth and then Olivier searches guitar and vocals.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
For both of us, without hesitation Lysystrata, a French band that reminds us of Biffy Clyro in their beginning, between noise, post-hardcore, and post-rock

In other genre, we like Jeff Clark's, a band of friends from our town, le Mans. It’s cold wave with planant melodies.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
With our previous band, we did a cover of PIxies, Gouge away. With Day of Nova, maybe a song of Biffy Clyro.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
Working hard to play live as soon as possible. We want to do lots of new songs and go on to have fun playing together.

We hope having lots of reviews as you do so as to be listened by more and more people

Q: Any parting words?
We’ve done 3 clips available on youtube. We hope you enjoyed them.
