Chrisに頼もうと思ったのは彼が僕たちがこういう音にしたいって意見が一致したアルバムを数多くミックスしていたからだね. (TWIABP - "Harmlessness", Makeshift Shelters - "Something So Personal", For Everest - "We Are At Home In The Body") 彼とは2015年にフロリダで開催していたFESTで会ったんだ.
I did an email interview with Carb on Carb, who will tour Japan this month. Please take a look.
1. Well then, please introduce your band first.
We are Carb on Carb, there are only two of us, we are from Auckland, New Zealand, we play emo music and we have never been to Japan before!
2. You are based in Auckland, what kind of city is Auckland?
Auckland is New Zealand's biggest city - but only about 1.4 million people live here. It is kind of like a small version of Sydney. Like the rest of New Zealand, there are not a lot of bands, but mostly they are very good!
3. Please tell us about how you formed the band. Also, you are a two-piece band. Could you tell us why you are doing without bassist?
Before Carb on Carb we were in a different 3 piece band together, then the other person left and we decided to swap instruments and start Carb on Carb. We started as an indie rock band but grew to love emo as the band developed so now we play emo. We don't have a bassist because being a two-piece it is much easier to tour, and we didn't know any bassists who wanted to tour as much as we did. We use a bass amp with the guitar to fill out the bass frequencies.
4. TWIABP’s Chris Teti was involved in the production of last year’s album “For Ages”. Tell me why he was involved. Also, how did you feel when working with him? (Up until now, you have created the entire work, including artwork, so I think it was very exciting that other people were involved.)
We decided to work with Chris Teti because he had mixed many of the albums that matched what we wanted to sound like (TWIABP - Harmlessness, Makeshift Shelters - Something So Personal, For Everest - We Are At Home In The Body) - and we had met him during Fest in Florida in 2015. He was amazing to work with - understood what we wanted straight away, explained his thoughts about it, all while being fun and supportive!
5. What is your motivation for doing songwriting?
We want to relate to other people with our songs, so that they can feel understood. And it is also therapeutic for us. And music is our passion.
6. You have done many tours in different countries so far. Please tell me if you have any memories of the tour.
So many memories! Playing at Fest in 2015 was a highlight, seeing and meeting so many of our favourite bands - and its a really fun festival atmosphere. Long drives with friends around Australia (such a big and empty country!). And we really love touring New Zealand too, its such a beautiful country.
7. Please tell me the bands and artists that you usually get along with. (Also the band you are listening to recently.)
My favourite is The Hotelier. I have been listening to Falls for a few years and am very excited to play with them in Japan! Nicole listens to a lot of Mitski, Boygenius and Beyonce.
8. I’m glad you came to Japan this time. Please tell me if you have any impression about Japan.
We have never been to Japan before! Very excited to see it, meet people and check out the music scene!
9. Finally, if you any message for anyone reading this interview, please let me know.
Come see us play in Japan and come and say hello, we would like to meet you.
Thanks Carb on Carb! They go on tour from May 17th to 26th. Let's all go for fun together.
