Artist of the Day: Stone Sea
Loud. If we could only use one word, that's how we would describe Stone Sea, our Artist of the Day! We have a chat with Elvis, the bands frontman...
Tell us about Stone Sea?
I am from São Paulo – Brazil, Connor and Jonathan are from Ireland, where the band is currently based. Our genre is always hard to describe and never too precise but overall: “Alternative Rock – Stoner Rock with pinches of World Music”
What is your songwriting process?
Usually starts with a melody coming to our minds that we manage to register it somehow. That becomes a riff or the voice melody that we develop into half or a full song before we bring to the rehearsal and from there we discuss what would be the best in terms of the order or how our instruments would work together, what comes next etc.
Who is your main inspiration?
I can't point out just one once we all have different influences, but consider this: Black Sabbath, Nirvana, Type O Negative, Pantera - take a drop out of that and another drop from world music and that becomes Stone Sea.
What made you want to start in music?
My parents were always big fans of rock n' roll, my mother used to sing blues and my father used to play in a psychobilly band in Brazil so the interest definitely came from there.
What is on the horizon for you?
Closest thing we have at the moment is the music video of our song Dream Song that is set to be released soon. We have also around ten new songs we want to record till the end of this year depending on how things will cope with it.
Who would you most like to collaborate with (alive or dead)?
Janis Joplin, definitely. I would f***ing love to listen to her voice in a slow heavy song. That would be the ultimate musical ecstasy.
What is your ultimate goal?
Live by our music.
If you could cover any song, what would it be?
I would really like to do a slow n' heavy version of Beck's song “Loser” or even “Tomorrow Never Knows” by The Beatles
Tea making: milk first or last?
Tell us your funniest joke!
What do electric cars and diarrhea have in common? The idea, “I will make it home.”
