Friendly takeover: interview with FFS

If the company does not have economic development, this often leads to a merger with a competitor. Is it exactly the same in music? With many so-called supergroups, this is still happening.

Two groups – Sparks and Franz Ferdinand merged under the name FFS. Looking for a reason for such an act, Martin Riemann found nothing but love.

Supergroup. A word that does not automatically inspire enthusiasm. Although everything is usually true with the “super” part, the word “group” is in doubt. How will everything work when the best come together? Who is the leader, who plays the rhythm guitar, who just can sit in the back of the bus during the tour? The fact that the meeting of super-musicians can become an ego-infringing clash is not realized Continue reading

Absolutely None: An Interview with Soak

She was named the new greatest UK songwriter: critics describe Soak as a tomboy girl from Northern Ireland with a skateboard, guitar behind her and touching songs in the arsenal.

But what is beyond the hype? A lot of things, says journalist Ayda Bagkherneyad.

Nobody goes around the bush, talking about her age. Bridi Monds-Watson, better known as Soak, first picked up the guitar at the age of 13, played her first concert at 15, and in 2012, when she turned 16, released her debut EP on a label owned by Chvrches.

And the fact that adulthood and maturity is overrated, because some people Continue reading

The Next Great Phenomenon: Interview with Wolf Alice

Not so long ago, stepping out of teens, in 2013 Wolf Alice with a handful of songs turned the music world upside down. While the label “grunge” stuck to them from the very beginning, on their debut album “My Love Is Cool” they finally blurred the boundaries between genres.

Michaela Gladovich met with vocalist Ellie Rousell and drummer Joel Emey in Berlin and interviewed.

Another young British indie band, from which, after a couple of EPs, all music critics just write boiling water. Magazines and blogs show off their accolades, the BBC in 2013 called Wolf Alice “the most-write-about-blogging group.” A year later, they received the “Best New Artist” award at the UK Festival Awards. With their first longplay “My Love Is Cool”, Ellie Rousell (guitar, vocals), Joff Oddi (guitar), Theo Ellis Continue reading
