Yamon Yamon来自斯德哥尔摩,是瑞典厂牌Tenderversion的签约乐队。Yamon Yamon早在2010年就推出了乐队的首张专辑《This Wilderlessness》,这张专辑在小范围内获得了不错的反响,更有评论认为Yamon Yamon乐队在瑞典独立流行音乐的基础上独到地融合了来自美国芝加哥音乐场景中特有的实验风味。好评归好评,那张专辑并没能给乐队的事业带来较大的突破。沉默了三年之后,Yamon Yamon经过了阵容的调整之后带着第二张专辑《Uisu》再一次回到了人们的视野。

1 乐队的阵容有些变化,你们是如何找到新成员的,他们又为乐队带来了哪些贡献?
J:我们找到Anton的时候他还在另外一支叫做Molotov Jive的乐队担任吉他技师。我们交换了联系方式,然后就走到了一起。他为我们的音乐带来了噪音和力量。键盘手Daniel为我们制作了《Wilderlessness》,所以他就融入到我们的乐队中来了。

2 与你们的首张专辑相比,《Uisu》当中最大的进步和发展是什么?
J:对我们而言,最精彩的部分是我们大家一起在排练室完成了这张专辑的创作。这样的创作更加生动。

3 这张专辑的制作过程如何?
J:专辑里所有的歌都是我们一起创作的,最初是由Jon的创作灵感和吉他riffs开始,在2012年5月的一个周末进行了排练,并录下了鼓和贝司。随后在Daniel位于斯德哥尔摩的录音室里,经过了若干个夜晚和周末我们终于完成了这张专专辑。

4 在乐队早期的一个采访中,采访者说北欧的乐队在整体上缺乏自己的个性,你对此的回答是“在制作那张专辑的时候我们的乐队还刚成型”,对你的乐队而言,现在又是什么样的情况呢?
J:首先我要说的是那个采访者的说法很奇怪。我认为瑞典乐队有着很强烈的个性,并且在那些制造有趣的、高品质的欧洲音乐人当中也是领导者…甚至在世界范围也是。现在我们是一支乐队,所有五位成员都对我们创作的音乐有着巨大的影响。在此之前,主要是Jon一个人负责创作。

5 作为一支瑞典乐队,你们是怎么看待瑞典之外的市场的?
J:我们发现那些来自英语国家的人通常最喜欢我们。但是想要打入那些国家的音乐圈通常是很难的一件事。我们会把音乐做下去的,看未来会怎样。

1 There’s some change with the line up of your band, how did you find the new members and what kind of chemistry do they bring in the band?
J:we found anton when he worked as a guitar tech with a band called molotov jive. we exchanged info and wee clicked right away. He brings noise and power to our slicked sound. Daniel, keyboards, produced this wilderlessness so he just blended in.

2 Compare with your debut, what is the greatest improvement or development in your second album “Uisu”?
J:The best and most ispiring thing is that we all make the songs together in the rehearsal space. It gets more vivid that way.

3 How was the process of writing and producing this album?
J:we made all the songs together, from idéas and riffs Jon came up with, during rehearsals and recorded the drums and bass during one weekend in may 2012. Then we finished it all during evenings and weekends in daniels studio in stockholm.

4 In an early interview, the interviewer said that Nordic bands are lack of personalities in general, you answered “we were a band at an quite early stage when we made this record”, what is the case for your band now?
J:First i have to say that that is a wierd statement from the interviewer. I think swedish bands have big personalities and are leaders in making interesting quality music in europe… even the world. Right now we act as a band. All five members have a big impact in what we produce. Before it was mostly Jon who where the creative mind.

5 How do you see the market for your band beyond your homeland Sweden?
J:We discovered that people from english speaking countries tend to like us the most. Unfortunately they live in countries where it is really hard to enter the music scene. we will keep on making music and see what the future brings.
