Interviews: Paraline

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Alternative Rock band Paraline from Georgia. Check out this band and follow them on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

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

We were looking for a name that would fit the vision of the project we had in mind.

2. Why did you want to play this genre? 

I wouldn't say we deliberately chose a genre or stuck to any particular genre. We definitely started with one genre and have now moved to a completely different one. Initially, it was purely based on taste preferences, but now, I would struggle to put a label on our music. We simply make it without aiming for a specific outcome, and it all conveniently falls under the broad label of Alternative.

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

Yes, I play with my brother, and we've known each other for some time. Seriously though, we were all close friends by the start of the project and assembled it from close friends based on human qualities rather than musical prowess. I've always thought that the most important thing in a collective is the chemistry between members, and musical skills can always be learned. The feeling that you're here for a reason and doing something right is the key – and that can't be taught and can't be bought.

4. Each band member's favorite band? 

Faith No More, Deftones, Bring Me The Horizon, Linkin Park. Guess whose is whose.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs? 

This is a question to which I have no answer, I just don't do it that way. I don't use inspiration to write music - I use writing music to get inspired to do music. I simply sit down and write a song until it comes together. Sometimes, events from life and the conclusions I draw from them guide me in writing lyrics, but that's only about the poetic side of music.

6. Where was your last gig? 

You're in luck - it was also one of our strangest concerts yet. Our last gig was at a private party at Mr. Sandler's production center. The best equipment we've ever seen. The best sound engineers. The best sound. And six VIPs in the audience.

7. Where would you like to act? 

Madison Square Garden.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

With Snoop Dogg.

9. Whom not? 


10. Have any of you ever suffered from stage fright? Any tips for beginners on how to beat that?

Each of us has suffered from it, perhaps, except for my brother. Each person has their own solution, but honestly, the best remedy is exposure therapy through gigs. At some point, you become a professional and no longer think about fear. You evaluate the situation and the challenges ahead of you. There's no time left for fear.

11. What bands have inspired you the most? 

Nine Inch Nails and Queens of the Stone Age.

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

Our fans asked us to participate in the Legends of the Hidden Temple bands edition together, but that’s not weird - that’s just great.

13. What do you think of your fans? 

The people who have found us, who participate in our premieres, eagerly await details about our new projects - these are the most precious people out there. After all, they've recognized us as someone worthy of attention amidst all the noise and horror that reigns online, and that means a lot.

14. What do you think of our site?

I enjoyed your "countries" section - it's an interesting idea, and I don't think I've seen anything like it before.

15. Something to add?

Serj Tankian once said young artists should kill themselves... Sounds harsh, but to be true though, doing music today, just like music journalism, is a crazy pursuit. Good luck to us all on this path!
