How would you describe your music?
The Seraphic Eyes try to create a deep and adrenalinic music, inspired by Punk, Grunge and Alternative Rock
Tell us about how the history of the band?
The Seraphic Eyes came to life 7 years ago in a flash, in a collision between two cars, a crash of metal, sparks and sharp sounds. A lucky accident gave me the time and the possibility to give new life to my creature abandoned 10 years previously. From that moment I restarted to create music inspired by the sounds of the guitar of the ’90s, I started to work with Azza on the drums and Laura on the bass.
What are you influences/ musical heroes?
Our influences start with Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, Dinosaur Jr and other 90s bands with a little bit of Bad Religion, sometimes Led Zeppelin, Metallica and many other.
What inspires you?
I’m inspired by my life and others lives, I’m inspired by love, by my activism, by politics, culture, future, by economic and social problems… I don’t have a unique muse.
Do you write on the road? or do you prefer to write in the studio?
I usually write alone, for me the studio it’s only for finishing, and when I write something that is not shit, Azza and Laura accept it and together we create new songs, if they not accept… I sadly play that notes for me on my couch 😉
What is your favourite song to perform live?
I think that my favourite songs on live are Losing Souls, Infinite Streets and all the songs with some instrumental parts, where I can play and dance on the stage!
What would be your dream tour to be a part of?
It would be amazing a 6 month world tour with Foo Fighters with 3 days on every big city, for visiting the most important monuments, discover traditions from all the planet, talking with people and finish with a big gig!
What are you current thoughts on the music industry?
I’m a little sad about music industry, I think that currently the show biz give a lot of space to grey musicians that doesn’t talk of the important things of life, and this is ’cause they’re scary about the risk of real artists that talk about peoples real problems or against wars as Jimy Hendrix or Lennon in the past! But this things needs to change!
What is the funniest/weirdest experience you have had on tour?
A girl after the last song of a gig started to scream: “I LOVE LAURA YOUR BASS PLAYER! I WANNA FUCK HER!!!” (Laura is my wife!) I was a little shocked so she continued: AND I WANT FUCK WITH YOU TOO” My first words was: “Thank you very much but… we are ok! Azza is single if you want!” And She replied: “Good drummer! See ya!” 😀 Sorry Azza! 😉
What are your future plans?
I’m trying to find big gigs where play and try to transform our music passion in a real work, in the meantime we hope people like our music and they often listening it on spotify or iTunes.
