Interviews: Svdestada

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Post-Hardcore band, Svdestada from Spain. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1.Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?

The band name is an idea by Fernando, he is Argentinian and the Sudestada is a climate phenomenon characteristic from "Rio de la Plata". It is a south east wind that brings cold temperatures, and it usually means the beginning of the winter. The initial name of the band was Sudestada, but as there are other bands named like that, as well as a famous song from Cerati, we decided to replace the ‘u’ with a ‘v’.

2.Why did you want to play this genre?

I don’t recall choosing the genre before we started making music. All the influences we have guided the sound into this direction that now sound like Svdestada. We have a lot of references from other bands, and we often joke while writing music and call different parts of a song after a band that sound like that, but we aren’t focused on sounding like nor being like a specific band.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

Yes, we all were playing in different bands before, and we knew each other before the band formation, in fact Svdestada is a project that starts right after the previous band of Fernando and Jorge had split, so when looking for new members for a different project they called friends to join in.

4. Each band member favourite band?

It is really hard to choose a favourite band for all of us, but to name a few; 

Fernando: Deftones

Mario: Current 93

Jorge: Isis and Neurosis

Peter: Neil Young and Crazy Horse

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Lyrically there are two faces, one inspired by deep pain, melancholy, nostalgia and loneliness, and other one that stands out against dogmatism, falsehood, gregariousness.

6. Where was your last gig?

Our last gig was in Bomberenea a place that we love and always feels like home, it was the weekend just before the lockdown in Spain.

7. Where would you like to act?

We would love to tour Japan, our vocalist has been there a couple of times with previous bands and is a place we would love to visit. Fluff fest is a reference in the scene and we would also love to play there some day.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

There are a lot of bands that we admire, and we would love to feature with. Just to name a few: Converge, Birds in Row, Ojne...

9. Whom not?

We don’t have a specific band or band member we would feel like banning in our heads, we try to focus on the things that we want to achieve.

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?

Not stage fright as itself, we are used to play in small venues with small audiences, and most of the time some of them are friends, so is not fear, you might be a little bit nervous hoping that everything goes well and you have fun doing it, in the end each show its a biproduct of all the work made previously through band practice and shows and you want to have fun and nail it.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

An endless list of bands could appear here, just to name a few: Zao, Converge, Botch, Norma Jean, The Chariot, Birds in Row, Basement…

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

Sign the album cover, it might no be the weirdest thing in the world, but we see ourselves and our fans as equals, normal people with jobs, family, hobbies. And we still ask ourselves why someone would want our signature.

13. What do you think of your fans?

We are very grateful to all the people that support us on any way, is overwhelming realizing that there are a few people around the world listening to our music, reading the lyrics, sharing it etc ...

14. What do you think of our site?

When talking about music or “the scene” Some people only think on the bands, and everything around the music is all part of it, venues, promoters, fanzines, blogs, magazines, etc etc. So we are very pleased and grateful to be featured in Brething the Core, and this opportunity to know the band a little bit more. Keep it up!

15. Something to add?

Thank BTC for this interview and we hope to be back on the road soon.
