When things break. Interview with Death Cab For Cutie

The American indie rock band Death Cab For Cutie has so far been inextricably linked to Christopher Wall. “Kintsugi” is the first album where Walla is not a producer or co-author of songs.

Benjamin Gibbard told Carlotta Aizela why this was supposed to happen and why, despite the fact that he sings mostly sad songs, Ben is the happiest person on Earth.

Benjamin, I’m sorry, but without a preface: Death Cab For Cutie without Chris Wall? Seriously?
The album is the beginning of a new chapter in the life of the group, which is clear as God’s day. This is our first record with a new producer, with a man from the side. The first 7 albums we wrote with Chris. Continue reading

You can look to the future with hope. Interview with Neon Lights

The St. Petersburg electronic duo Neon Lights was created by two music critics Yevgeny Lazarenko and Max Hagen, in response to the many cries of offended musicians “first try, then criticize.”

Neon Lights is a vibrant new-wave dance project that sounds equally good both on the festival stage and in the club space, and even from the disc of a beginner DJ in a bar on Dumskaya Street.

On the eve of the band’s performance on May 10, BritishWave.ru talked to the musicians in the new club’s “Sputnik” hall A2, asking them about festivals, the future of the music scene in Russia, and also learned the formula for a successful group.

Are you worried about the future?

Today he got even more tired when our keyboard player, returning from a forced link, began to push ideas on how to get to Moscow. I don’t know what I Continue reading

Thailand for Heroes: An Interview with The Libertines

Miracles do happen. In the second half of 2015, the third album The Libertines will be released.

Kevin Perry looked behind a screen of rehearsals in Thailand that “pumped fresh blood into the band,” says Pete Doherty.

There is a saying in Thailand, just in case of absolutely unbelievable events: residents say “Châat nâa dton-bàai”, which means “Everything will happen one evening, in your next reincarnation.” In England they would say “When hell freezes” or “When The Libertines record a new album.”

And somehow, one of the most incredible days has come. At the end of 2014, for the first time in a Continue reading
