These Go to 11: interviewing Go Violets

For our next interview we go back to the bands/musicians. This time with Alice Rezende, guitarist and 1/4 of the band that, imo, released the best EP of 2013, the amazing Australian band Go Violets. These Go to 11!

Alice Rezende, Go Violets
Go Violets, hyper-addictive quartet.
Formed in 2011, this all-female quartet hailing from Brisbane debuted with the digital EP "^​-​.​-​^" in March 2012. Terrific tunes "Teenager" in August 2012, "Josie" in May 2013, and "Wanted" in August 2013 followed, anticipating their proper first release, the irresistible EP "Heart Slice", out past October on label Create Control. Six extremely infectious, killer tunes, armed with enough infallible hooks & harmonic vocals to win any war, melting garage with sweetest pop. Please keep Going Violets!

Surreal writers: Mmm bop, ba duba dop x3 
1. First record that you bought (be honest)
Hanson’s “Middle of Nowhere”, on CD (it was the ‘90s). But the first record I actually bought was for my boyfriend, and it was Brisbane’s No Anchor LP “Real Pain Supernova”, which is solid.

2. First and last concert you have attended (be honest too!)  
First – Hanson (duh). Last concert was Future of the Left’s show in Brisbane, but I only went to see the opener band Damn Terran from Melbourne, whom we’re friends with.

3. Guilty pleasure (song/band you shouldn’t like but you do, yes, it’s the embarrassing question)

The man... and  the glasses.
4. Most precious music item you own (collector mode on)
I WISH I had the Eddy Current discography on vinyl. That would be precious.

5. Favorite lyrics (not yours)
Any song by Unknown Mortal Orchestra.

6. Musician/s you would like to meet (should be alive, for obvious reasons, but you can choose a dead one too)
Patti Smith, Bono.

7. Favorite artwork album (not yours)
Kind of love Day Ravies’ cover for their new album “Tussle”.

8. Books or movies? Depending on your answer recommend us one (trick: you can choose both)
Well up in my list of must watch is the original “Clerks” black and white movie, and must read, I dunno, currently I’m reading Nietzche’s “Thus Spoke Zarathustra”. So yeah.

9. Song (of yours) you are most proud of
All of them. Specially the first ones.

10. What’s does it mean indie for you? (yes, the “serious question”)
I guess it means staying true to your independent format and to not letting outside influences dictate what you release or how you release it and when, although that can sometimes be pretty unrealistic. I guess having your own vision is important, though, so we strive for that.

11. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Making music, still being friends, having rad jobs, travelling the world.
Zillion thanks Alice!
